I'd like to hold a video meetup for Kith kitchen folks on the first weekend of March (6th to 7th), just a no-pressure friendly hangout for our users to get to know each other better. If you're interested, like this post and I'll send you a doodle poll link so we can find a time that works.

The leeds queer film festival is on this weekend, last night we saw an excellent film called Rebel Dykes about radical leftwing lesbians in London in the 70s and 80s, and their legacy

(Young) Math students of the world, when you don't have any idea of how to solve a problem, you can try to:

- make a drawing in order to better understand what's happening

- try to solve a simpler instance of the problem in order to see if what you are trying to prove is indeed true, why, and what could possibly be wrong in the complicated case

These are very easy advises that essentially nobody follows 🙄

An anti-abortion org's office in Wisconsin was recently firebombed, damaging it badly.

Just today, a group called Jane's Revenge, a pro-abortion group, has taken credit for it, and issued an ultimatum demanding the dismantling of all anti-abortion establishments, fake clinics/crisis pregnancy centers, and groups within 30 days, else more widespread, more thoroughly damaging attacks will follow.

LB: If you’re used to Twitter, reporting users probably feels like a futile last resort but on fedi, moderation is done by human beings. You don’t need an iron-clad case - reporting rudeness, bad behaviour, or a sketchy vibe can alert mods to potential trouble even if they don’t take immediate action. And remember to check the “forward anonymously to the remote instance” button too

I’m a simple soul. I like peace and quiet, reading and gardening. I’m a)old and b) extremely isolated. So, for example no kids or young people to ask about techie stuff. I regularly go a couple of weeks without interacting with anyone. So the other place has been hugely important to me, where I have about 7k followers. I would rather be on here though if I can get it right.

Daytrip to Wakefield today to visit the Hepworth (entry fee £12!!!!) and the Art House. We wanted to get some abyssinian food for lunch but our favourite place was closed, so we went for some nice Mexican instead.

Laura got a shitload of carrots going cheap. Like three bags, we normally get through about three individual carrots in a week. So we'll have to go hard on the root veg recipes, or find some local horses.

Folks, please remember to add content warnings to political posts, especially at times like this, and consider asking others to do so before boosting their posts. Sharing news and information is important but so is looking after everyone's mental health.

it's World Press Freedom Day, apparently

one of the things I most appreciate about press freedom is the freedom to say "you do not have the right publish your hate through my press" and then to refuse to serve whoever tries to

A little post. I’m Kolja from Germany. I’m a software engineer that loves cooking and photography. On this account I will mostly share my cooking experiments, recipes and photos of my food. If you see something you like don't hesitate to ask for the recipe. I like to do crazy fusion stuff. I cook a lot of the various asian cuisines. I like to understand the science behind cooking but I'm no Kenji ultra.

I'm trying to figure out how to use boosts effectively and appropriately. Particularly:

Is there any cultural downside to reboosting toots someone I'm following already boosted?

How much do folks who've been here a while limit their boosts?

Why you shouldn't give racists a warning 

5. So often harassers will do their harassment publicly, and then when warned, "make amends" privately; fuck that

6. You are optimizing the space you have created for white people's moral education, not for black people's safety

Why you shouldn't give racists a warning 

1. It sends the message "It's okay to do this, you'll just get a warning"

2. Allowing them to continue on your instance tells the people they harassed that now it's on *them* to figure out how to share the space with the harasser

3. It allows racists to push the limits of how racist they can get

4. If you let them get away with a certain level of "warnable" racism before, it opens you up to accusations of hypocrisy if you try to crack down on it later
