Discourse Inferno 

Lately I try to keep my distance from people whose entire online brand is social media shouting, even if their politics are seemingly okay.

I've seen so many people get carried away with the shouting and let it become their default mode of interaction--with some real unhappy results when the topic of the day inevitably hits on one of their blind spots

Taking my gf home to meet my folks this weekend and I'm very nervous.
My parents are kinda, "old school" Mastodon types and well, my girlfriend is a Brand so, I dunno, I just hope it all goes OK.

Hey… I just met you… and this is crazy… but read my 5000 word diatribe on an obscure open source social network and its evolution in recent times… so call me maybe…

Contemporary Latin Word of the Day:

To waste time = Tempus terere
To waste time together = Tempus conterere

Welcome to mastodon. Here's your courses on French and Japanese, a "THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS" bumpersticker, and a fresh pineapple for some reason.

the two genders are "people who go by their name online" and "people who go by a handle online"

POLITICS 

Obsessively watching GA-06 precinct results come in. Not healthy!
