A reminder for anyone new to mastodon who might not be happy with some of the racist and bad actors out there on other servers... Just import the fediblock list to your personal blocks and you will be safe from the vast majority of bad actors.

I took all the domains from block list and put it in a csv file that can be imported so you can block all hateful ...

So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

There is a movie called "Trump vs the Illuminati" where in some distant future a clone of Trump escapes a space prison and goes on a killing rampage.... I feel like I need to watch this movie now.

@ariaflame @freemo @agilealliance Sometimes an angry hurt person is just an angry hurt person.

Cheers to my friend freemo, and my new acquaintance aria.

Sorry to be so reactive.


Again, these acts are horrific, the semantics about what language you want to use doesnt matter to me nor am I objecting to it.. the issue is the non-descript more hyperbolic form makes it harder to know what, specifically, the law is being discussed and makes it much harder for anyone to read up on the topic and thus integrate a persons views.

You are literally arguing with someone whose only intent, very clearly and explicitly stated, was to ask what the law of concern was. I never justified the law, never said anyone was wrong for being upset, just asked what the law was... and from that you've now spent 2 days throwing a tantrum over literally nothing and trying your best to fabricate some delusional image of me that is in no way related to my actions..

Apologize, and move on if you want, or keep making a fool of yourself. I dont care, but you can kindly leave me alone now because you are a waste of energy and time I could be spending **actually* helping LGBTQ people or doing other positive works rather than feeding your black hole of toxicity over a non-issue.

You are not welcome to contact me again about this issue, thank you.

@freemo So the mafia is ineffective? Glad to hear it. Was looking into your feed and it seems they use feat more than violence, a good thing. Let's hope it stays that way.


Law.l** ftfy

Btw, if such things got out of hand, I would just artificially inflate my own faux political party with various nonprofits erected to support underprivileged domain names.

Names have rights too.

@freemo @ariaflame @GeePawHill @agilealliance , I don't doubt your intentions. I have watched your interactions for about 8 months now, since I joined this instance. I doubt MY observations of another person a few days back, someone I did not know, who I assumed was arguing without good faith, to 'win the internet'. The similarities were, looking at the two conversations, blatant. I am questioning now, based on your conversation, if I was too quick to judge. Second guessing myself. It seemed to me that everyone should be directly aware of the book bannings, the anti trans legislation, etc, that states like Florida are imposing, and how miserable the state is becoming. This discussion defused my opinion of a guy who I pretty much KNEW was sealioning me.

So, I am attempting to return the favor.

@freemo they don't care about that kind of community risk, though: they *want* an idpol grievance echo chamber, not a place to critically examine their positions to make them stronger. Comfortable patting each other on the back, not any kind of intellectual growth.

In this case, there's a race to describe Florida and Texas in the most hyperbolic nonsensical language possible. You get brownie points and encouragement from the crowd if you do that. Questioning it in any way is spoiling the fun.


I am neither sealioning or asking someone to do my research for me. I am engaging in a respectful discussion. A post was made saying gay/trans cant go there. I asked for why you feel that is the case, that is not sealioning nor asking you or anyone to do research.

I am not trolling, nor "profoundly ignorant", not everyone keeps tabs on the day to day happenings in Florida... but congratulations on being rude to someone who is genuinely curious about your opinion, and having a desire to support you in your concerns. Quite the self-defeating approach you have going there.

@GeePawHill @agilealliance

"Sealioning" is just an excuse to attack people for asking honest questions.

Why is it everyone around the world's responsibility to keep up with American bullshit?
@freemo @ariaflame @GeePawHill @agilealliance

@freemo @mia I applaud your tenacity then, people like that are beyond help and deserve ridicule at most as soon as the first signs are spotted.

Holy hell the toxicity is on another level.. apparently politely asking someone what law they are talking about is the same as sealioning now... cant even make this idiocy up... two days ive been trying to get information and learn about their concerns and for even bothering to try to understand their concerns (with no opposition of any kind) makes me the bad guy.... do these people not realize that this level of toxicity is putting their communities at risk and not helping?

@freemo Ah, thank you for your confirmation of my suspicions.

@LouisIngenthron so apparently I've been doing some checking and modern day gunpowder residue isnt corrosive (except for blackpowder and blackpowder substitutes)... At least as far as I can see the idea that you should clean it after every shooting session is a bit out dated.
