When implementing dark mode, naively inverting seldom works. Instead, consider this great dark mode UI advice: ⤵️
🔥 When implementing dark mode, don’t throw away the visual cues in the light version by naively inverting the color scheme.
Close elements should still be lighter and distant elements should still be darker – even in a dark UI.

The fallacy of thinking that innocence alone will protect from accusation or prosecution has *many* historical counterexamples.
People can get mad and mob you over things that aren't actually harmful, or worse, that you didn't actually do.
"Don't be abusive if you're afraid of callouts" ignores the fact that some folks can't properly delineate abuse from "something I didn't like" or, for social or rhetorical reasons, will choose not to.
And worse, contextualizing disagreement as abuse, or creating a public narrative to reverse the victim and offender is, itself, abuse. Inappropriate contextualization is all it takes.
It's not as simple as "callouts good" or "callouts bad" because
~ there's clearly a time and place where it's appropriate to warn people about someone's patterns of abuse. ~
But if you think interpersonal conflict, in/outgroup dynamics, social capital, and the power to spin a story with assumed motives don't play a part, then you're missing the reality of it
'member when #opeth wrote epic fusions of metal, acoustic and progressive rock that wasn't just a gimmick to sound clever but effectively used light and shade to convey a sense of sublime melancholy that felt authentic and emotionally resonant as well as technically impressive?
I love #Windows10, but there is 1 thing I hate: the media control toast.
It's way too large, it stays on display for too long, it's not Fluent, it cancels the fade out animation if you move your mouse over and the worst: you can't dismiss it! 😤 Please fix it!

I'm starting to wonder about my position on deplatforming of extreme personalities.
@switchingsocial, sorry to name drop but I got into a bit of a debate with you some time back about this and you made some really good points that made me waiver on my position that deplatforming was bound to result in a net negative.
It does indeed appear that removing these people from mainstream platforms does prove effective in limiting their reach, but this article echoes my worry that those that follow them underground into their echo chamber will become further radicalised to the point of taking their extremism to the streets.
I'd like to see more research weighing up the positive of limiting the spread of extremist ideologies vs the negative of those ideologies further metastasising out of the mainstream public eye.

Oh well! The free version of #Fedilab has been removed by Google.
I know people started to report it. But... Why the reason is for "payments policy violation"? I appealed for that but I will not re-upload anything for this version.
Don't forget to get it with #Fdroid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon/
or the version built from sources. Follow @mastalab for links to apk.
Strangely, the paid version is not *currently* affected.
