A request regarding Content Warning (CW) text
Please avoid abbreviations in your CW text! Not everyone knows the abbreviations you use, so they might click something they don't want to, or miss something they'd like to see.
Plus, some abbreviations can mean different things in different contexts, and the context isn't always clear in a brief CW summary.
Unless you're running out of room in your toot or the full words are more likely to be triggering, please type out the words in your CW text!

How to handle personally identifiable information (PII)
1. Don't collect PII
2. Don't store PII
3. Don't share PII
If you cannot avoid handling PII in the first place, here's what you should do instead.
1. Don't collect PII you don't need.
2. Don't store PII longer than necessary.
3. Don't share PII with people or organizations who cannot prove a need to know.

Oh hey, Bandcamp is donating all of its profits today to the NAACP.
Honestly your direct donation to the cause of your choice would go a lot further, but I'm freelancing in a difficult time and have a bandcamp, so if you want to buy obscure music and know that your service fees are going somewhere good, here is my stuff: https://mired.bandcamp.com
Block and mute early
Block and mute often
Do it for reasons that are entirely "selfish"
No one is entitled to your attention
There will not be a test
Nothing bad happens if you don't hear them
Too many techbros? Mute 'em all
That one guy's jokes need a CW? Your timeline can be full of other stuff
You can even mute that one person's boosts while keeping their posts
It's not censorship; you're not hurting that person
And you don't ever need to explain it or tell anyone
It's Coco! This spooky terracotta bunny wants to live on YOUR island! Coco has an NFC chip installed in her butt, so she works as a #amiibo compatible with #AnimalCrossingNewHorizons
If there's a villager amiibo plush you want me to make, leave a comment!
comic creators and publishers accused of predatory behaviour
Nobrow was under fire for poaching and paying new grad bad rates, but I can't seem to find the threads anymore...
