This is not to say I don't say or boost stupid shit, and I'm sure it's unfair for me to ask this, but I hope at least some folks will call me out on it when I do even though I often just block others and don't bother.

If I'm following someone or even letting them follow me, you can consider that to be at least somewhat of an endorsement on my part. I do some basic research before following someone or accepting their follow request, and if they don't have enough history for me to be able to make a decision, I'll usually decline. Sometimes I'll give someone the benefit of the doubt, but I've blocked even long time followers on the basis of a single boost or post before.

Currently laughing my ass off about how folks are all BLM while boosting instances that PV has said REPEATEDLY are hubs of antiblack behavior and create conflict with us for no fucking reason other than racism.

Y'all are funny, man.

Not surprising because they literally put a Microsoft guy in charge, Vic Gundotra.

also for the record people talk about brave browser like it's some kind of last word of privacy

1. it's a chromium fork
2. brendan eich is a homophobe
3. the fact that it uses cryptocurrency/blockchain trash and also hammers it in your face that it's "privacy-focused" is SUCH a spook
