A bunch of Hachette employees are refusing to work on Wingardium TransphoBIa's new kids book now. Hachette claims that this is against free speech and trying to force them to do so anyway

Jeez, there are too many hotspots for hams. I mean, choice is good, but there is a certain point where information overload kicks inn and you just don't bother.

They're pricey too…

#Mastodon really is an /absolute blessing/ for me.

Being able to respond to things when I can.

To walk away from the computer for a bit without anyone wondering where I suddenly went.

To stop, think, formulate replies with no Social Time Limit – no "think fast, come up with something, now, now – too late, now everyone's wondering why you haven't said anything".

Email does this too. But email's... /intimidating/. Letters weren't designed for informal conversation.

For two years the police budget was flatlined. No cuts, just no new spending. In response, TPS stopped enforcing any traffic laws.

Traffic duty is punishment for them. It means you don't get to be out on minority hunting duty.
