@adam3us @BitKnow @Raindogdance Note I don't condone shooting someone for trying to deceive another person into getting the vaccine (the "softer rape").
If you're in a position to shoot anyone, the minimum force needed to avoid that situation is to simply warn the victim of the truth verbally.
(If they choose to believe the deceiver over you, that's their problem)

No, by forcibly injecting foreign matter into my body. In other words, RAPE.
Try to rape me, or anyone I care about, and you WILL be met with deadly force, period.

But feel free to ask me.
My answer for now is "no".

But please, when asking anyone, don't do it on false pretenses.
These vaccines are neither safe, nor help humanity.
Deceiving people into "consent", isn't really consent either, just a "softer" rape.

n.b. This was a reply to someone else's toot basically ridiculing someone for observing other people weren't wearing masks, and therefore using a N95 to keep himself safe (ie, personal responsibility).

Not sure why Mastodon lost the context :/

What is wrong with you?

Masks are just clothing. Do you complain about people wearing shoes? That they expect you to as well?

Masks actually have a purpose that affects others, unlike shoes!

To phrase it another way:

Gab, Twitter, Trump's new thing, etc are intentionally preventing their users from communicating with people on other networks.

Reminder: NOT federating social media at all is identical to banning everyone who chooses not to use your network.

IMO this should be considered a form of monopoly abuse and illegal.

A right is something you are justified defending with violence.
To oppose self-defense is to oppose human rights.

And what I was banned for isn't even actual self-defense - merely *discussing* it.

(The "threatening and/or promoting violence" refers to simply saying I would defend myself and my family against someone else actively assaulting us)

It's almost funny how Twitter tells me I have DMs, but won't let me even read them... -.-

Update: "After investigating your appeal, we have determined that your account posted content that was threatening and/or promoting violence in violation of the Twitter Terms of Service. Accordingly, your account has been suspended and will not be restored."

No link to appeal further.

Has anyone made an app you can enter an object name in (eg, "eyeglasses" or "keys") and have it continuously scan the camera for the object and alarm when it's found? 🤔

Adjusting for inflation, today is at ~$12k pre-pandemic dollars.

So we're not actually at a new high yet.

I guess we need to break $100k for a real new high.

Guess it's time to renew the push for Mastodon.

Apparently a hypothetical self-defense is a permanent ban from Twitter.

Core @ubuntu PPA updated with 22.0.

(Sorry, it is no longer practical to support xenial/16.04LTS)

If you get an email inviting you, be aware it is spam and their "testing version" is almost certainly malware.

has locked-in for for both and @bitcoincoreorg's alternate ST/BIP9 deployment.

That's the easy part. But more importantly now, is that users upgrade to enforce Taproot by November.

Currently, we have just 23% of nodes enforcing.
