Hello Wandering Shoppers!
@Johannab has come forward and is being considered to take up the mantle as one of the Shop's Community Admins.
Do you have thoughts on this? Please DM (and only DM) @phildini AND @Annalee on Discord or Mastodon (preferably Discord) if so. Please don't post those thoughts publicly, as we want folks' unbiased opinions.
We'll have an update in roughly a week, and we are hoping to build a community admin team to share the load, so join the conversation on Discord!

We are seeing a censorship wave from the right the likes we have never seen. Shredding common core math books, “Don’t Say Gay”, Maus book banning, burning the muṣḥaf, denouncing reality as “fake news”. Do we hear one peep about that? Nope. But try to block direct harassment and it’s a deadly sin apparently.
Hey yall! 💞 I'm $800 shy of my top surgery goal. I'm still dealing with medical bills and would appreciate your aid!
I'm latinx, trans masc and not making enough to deal with the stress of finances. I'm also supporting my underemployed trans gf. Every donation is appreciated and very rad
Yesterday the Kansas legislature tried to ban trans kids from sports and overrule the governors veto. They were 2 votes short. Representative @ByersForKansas@twitter.com helped convinced 4 republicans to abstain.
One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.
It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.
It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!
After 5 years of work, security.txt is officially an RFC. I am pleased to announce RFC 9116: https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc9116.
I would like to use this opportunity to thank those who made this possible. Thank you. ❤️
