people are always like "wow, my social network of choice is total garbage and getting worse every day! I want to leave and go somewhere better! And No I Will Not Join Mastodon Stop Asking."
like...?? what? Why is it that there's this innate disinterest in trying Mastodon, from everyone, to the point that they dismiss the very idea as silly? they know that they can make their own Instances and defederate from all of us who are already here, if we're the problem, right? They'd get to have their own version of Twitter with any community balance they want. What keeps them away when their experience can be however they want it to be? What reasons are left?
Someone: "hey, why are wetlands important?"
So tired... I barely got to paint over the last few weeks. But yesterday I felt the urge again, so I did some quick sketches.
1 Regard as probable; expect or predict.
1.1 Guess or be aware of (what will happen) and take action in order to be prepared.
1.2 Look forward to.
from Latin anticipat- ‘acted in advance’, from anticipare, based on ante- ‘before’ + capere ‘take’.
For those who anticipate the arrival of the WotD post, your time is NOW!
Community-sourced data should belong to the community. It should be easily accessible to anyone who wants to use it, and decisions relating to the data that affect how it can be used should be made by the community. Proprietary control of crowd-sourced data has been used against the community in so many ways in the past, including with MuseScore's sheet music.
1 Closely connected or appropriate to what is being done or considered.
1.1 Appropriate to the current time, period, or circumstances; of contemporary interest.
Latin relevant- ‘raising up’, from Latin relevare.
I suppose it is irrelevant that relevant has not been a word of focus while germane has been. Words used are theoretically random.
Today's pizza image is probably irrelevant, too.

Say that one no longer holds an opinion or belief, especially one considered heretical.
Mid 16th century from Latin recantare ‘revoke’, from re- (expressing reversal) + cantare ‘sing, chant’.
My opinion, strong,
They wanted me to recant.
But that would just be wrong.
Sorry, I simply can't.
[I must say that attempt at #wordplay was slightly canted to the left. Wry, oh wry did you make me do it?]
adjective titchier, titchiest
Today's WotD is so titchy, there's no room for an image.
