I wish more lefties would internalize that hypocrisy is not a meaningful accusation to the right. Of course they're being hypocrites. That you are bound - by rules, standards, logic, human decency, some sort of fundamental moral consistency, anything at all - and they are not?

I’m downloading and installing a creative cloud app from Adobe.

“Do you want to install a constantly-running service that’s going to burn resources and narc on you to Adobe?”

I get why you want this on corporate deployments, but who says yes to this on a consumer install?

Billionaires are a "Code Smell" for economic systems.

If you're generating them, its a sign that something has gone deeply wrong in your architecture that needs to be fixed ASAP.

:mastodon: Mastodon tip: you can customize a column to list multiple hashtags (and block-list some of them too). It's a good way to discover all the posts gravitating around the topics you like (eg. for art, #mastoart is a popular one). That's really a feature I love here and wanted to share it to newcomers.
