A serious reminder: Please note that prison labor In the US is not "like" slave labor, it is expressly slave labor. The constitution allows for forcing slave labor upon inmates. It *is* slave labor, it is exactly slave labor, and it has never been anything but slave labor.
The exact wording of the 13th Amendment is "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction." Expressly, slave labor is still perfectly legal, so long as the state can make you into a criminal, and it will if it can.
This Is horrifying and I therefore must share it
oh my LORD
Would not be surprised if the big t down here tried this
alphabet had previously funded an insane number of linknyc kiosks around nyc, and now it's adding potentially thousands of taxi cabs to run similar campaigns https://www.adweek.com/programmatic/hundreds-of-nyc-taxis-are-about-to-go-programmatic-thanks-to-a-funding-boost-from-google/
So Gab has decided that their own code that they spent $5M of investor money developing is so unsalvageably bad that they're going to use Mastodon's code instead, with the added bonus of leeching off of our apps (with Gab apps being banned from app stores)
This is an early warning to fellow admins to be vigilant and domain-block them on sight, when/if they appear (unconfirmed whether they intend to federate), and to app devs to consider if blocking Gab's domains from their app is necessary.

So @email@example.com clumsily replaced Wikipedia photos with their own product-placement shots, then made a video about their clever "hacking". Dicks. https://adage.com/creativity/work/north-face-top-imagens/2174261?fbclid=IwAR1RSJI_cWG3D7wruQPwM6Zl6OMjqylOYEymicOMKe3VCESGVGz6JsA_yvE

amazing “I could fight a bear” energy in this post about nazis
God gun worshippers are the fucking worst.
I’m pretty sure the country of France had guns and they still got taken over by the Nazis.
@Posty I'd advise Goldilocks to contest. To be guilty of burglary the prosecution would have to prove, beyond reasonable doubt, that Goldilocks entered the building as a trespasser with intent to steal or commit an indictable offence. If I know the story correctly, she was looking for her grandma and presumptively could argue she did not have the requisite mens rea for the trespass arm. I'd advise we seek withdrawal of all charges.
