And there is of course the horrible truth that the vast amount of the wealth,  privilege power and control is still centralised within white communities, centuries of exploitation and all that has not gone away over night.
I'm not saying it's a good or bad thing but it's a simple fact: That to enact proper lasting ecological protection we are going to need the majority of white people on board.

Comedy doesnt even enter the equation: Puddles is the most talented musician since Pagliacci

The Great Seriousness... now there's a term I've gotta throw in the forum search bar. Probably something there that might keep me occupied for an hour or two.
A lot of grayfaced infighting that resulted in eris "rewarding" us with four years of the Maga Khan.

After relatively mild side effects from Moderna I, Moderna II kicks like a mule: hot and cold fever, headache, arm fully unusable and just general tiredness. Worst of it gone within 24 hours but not completely.

Wrap your brain around that one.  Marginalized people are the people suffering (present tense) FIRST as the climate takes a shit.  But that wasn't the motivation for the committee, apparently.

Then they got all mad when Joe wouldn't head back to the lab to try again.

In this scenario, Joe is the prince and the swallow, and the committee is the mayor and his cronies.  "The new statue should be me."

Even reading about this second hand is tedious and frustrating, and makes me less interested in what they are trying to raise awareness of.
I work with 200MW of systems that can be optimised for carbon minimisation, its literally part of the job to align myself with their cause and I would go out of my way to avoid discourse with them after reading that.

Here's me probably missing the point or putting my own dumb spin on things:
The mediums of communication of activism, in all its current forms, gets locked into the pattern of the Prince and the swallow.
Every single group over the last five years that starts out with reasonable and useful (or fuck it, even malevolent) intentions has gradually consumed its followers, at a minimum polarizing and isolating them from others who do not share the same modes of communicating, it has a way of breaking down the lingua franca and reducing it to specialised narrow scope.

I emphasise that this is the medium of communication of activism and not activism itself because there is a distinction there:
1) I refer to those who use the mediums of communication for these groups, talking about doing vs actually doing, the busier you are the less time you have to fall into this problem
2) There is plenty of activism going on that relies almost exclusively on not interacting with the majority of groups who supposedly represent its interests

This has been widely dismissed by the right wing locked in their own feedback loop as what they call Virtue signalling, itís easy to dismiss this behaviour as someone doing this for social credit or fear of being pilloried, but I donít believe either of these is the motivator, once locked into a loop and pattern of communication it gets harder and harder to break out

I'm likely way off the mark for what you were going for here

Aw man, you were working the numbers for them and then they made you a number. Working a meals on wheels job sounds incredibly fulfilling and there's got to be a lot of interesting people to meet doing it.

Yeah, degenerate subculture bb's are still doing OK, they have all lost numbers barring the fanfic community.

I'm sure if we were actively looking for people or pushing engagement and continually working on the site we could bring more people in where in the past people found their own way, but thats if there was the will.

Its not you roger, why the forum is quiet, no more than any of us, separately, I'm sorry that years later she will shit on your troll on another website, that's bad form I wouldn't even do that to someone who Ive a grudge against

the spinoff series, not as good as the original, as requested

I got it (moderna) yesterday because of an underlying respiratory issue,  no symptoms but I've heard it's pot luck on that.
I'm looking forward to all the things I was missing out on with social distancing: the arm wrestling competitions, the kissing people on each cheek european style, and let's not forget the orgies.
Jokes aside it will nice to be able to see a film in the cinema again

Awesome. Ideally if he wanted to damage cellbrite all he needs to do is publish the exploit. They would mitigate it but the damage would already be done reputationally .

Seperately if he is able to filter their scan techniques from general traffic, he could make a data poison app that every single phone scanned would get flagged for suspicious behaviour rendering the technique invalid in court also

Impounding a super tanker over billions in losses is awesome. I wonder will they auction it off like the debtors auctions?
