I hate phones 

@trinsec You guys can't get Pixel phones in the Netherlands, can you?

What I’ve been called and why I use the tag on my profile. In jest of course.

No surprise, now these toxic bullies from tech.lgbt are trying to have private conversations with me, which I of course indulge, and then quote whatever ammo they can use out of context and dump the rest...

It is amazing these people trust anyone who is so clearly **not** being transparent.

Qoto.org blocking, genocide mention 

Traditional oven cooked, vs Smoked 

Which would you choose? We have both.

For fellow arrivals, @freemo (the amazing Qoto.org admin) shared a Domain Blocking List.

If you import this comma-separated values (CSV) file into your Mastodon account via the Preferences, that can help keep spammers and bad actors out of your timelines/feeds. I know some folks have complained about it.

Here’s the Domains Blocked file in Google Sheets. You can go to File ->Download->CSV to get a copy of the domains blocked list.

Then, once you have it saved, import it via your Preferences -> Import->Domain Blocking List as shown in the screenshot.

Stop staring at me, Gnome!

Is Mars on a close approach? Seems the biggest I can remember in the sky right now.

New tool. I don't buy knives all that much anymore, but when I do, they are from Finland.

The biggest thing I've learned on #mastodon so far is how incredibly toxic the #BirdSite quote-tweet was. I would never have even thought about it ...

This thing is crazy. From Steven Pinker. It hurts my eyes too look at, I actually have too look away. But the center white is the same brightness/color as the radiating white (that's with the black). I think our minds just recognize it as the sun, but still create a physical response. Even after 15mins, I still can't look at it for too long.

It makes me smile how well Mastodon caters for niche interests. There is even a hashtag for people who like tree trunks:

Related, Elon Musk wants #E2EE DMs in "Twitter 2.0" and has enlisted the help of Moxie Marlinspike, the founder of @signalapp and the architect of the #Signal protocol.
