ignoring racism to focus on screenshot dunking is respectability politics, hope this helps

People really really need to understand that snouts had had 4 instances of people being racist over the course of like 3 months and the only thing that was going to save it was putting the hammer down and not feeling bad about it. If you want a community not to be racist, you need to send a clear signal that it will not be tolerated. Being wishy-washy is not acceptable. Suspending instances being critical of you while you harbor racists is not acceptable. This is not hard to understand and is basic moderation

(Yep, `tail` just also supports waiting for a PID to exit it turns out.)

(You know you're explaining something well when you're nesting parentheses.)

shocked to discover that i've been talking to the skype call testing service for every one of my online therapy appointments

right-clicking on the URL bar and selecting "Always show full URLs" fixed it for now

(I assume that option is going the way of Google Reader before long though)
