Since doing @librelounge I've gotten a few posts to my AP feed about what people don't like. I used to try to reply to every one, but instead I'm doing this:

If you ask a (legitimate) question, I'll try to answer. If you are answering a question of mine, I'll try to at least favorite or reply.

If you are just going to tell me something you don't like, especially in the form of telling me that I suck, I see no reason to spend energy on that. If I suck, please don't waste your time on me.

The Mozilla Foundation has a podcast called IRL. In a recent episode they talked about passwords and basically ended the episode advocating the use of proprietary password managers, specifically LastPass and OnePass.

LastPass has had number of security breaches over the years. Mozilla is a non-profit that creates Free Software, and even has a password manager built into Firefox that is FLOSS, and even self-hostable. Why are they advocating people use inferior stuff to their own?

@emacsen I tend to find this quite wierd behaviour, undisciplined/incoherent maybe.

As Poistone said[0]:

"Racism rarely, [...] constitutes a whole system that seeks to explain the world; whereas antisemitism is a primitive critique of the world of capitalist modernity. The reason I regard it as being particularly dangerous for the Left is precisely because antisemitism has a pseudo-emancipatory dimension that other forms of racism rarely have."

Just had to unsubscribe from yet another left-wing news org due to antisemitism. I wish the far left could rid itself of the conspiracy theories and other hate speech around "Jewish control".

Still no published list of speakers, but I know @cwebber is one and I assume @bkuhn and/or Karen Sandler and/or Deb Nicholson will be speaking.
