"[social network], but without the nazis" aka.:
so far the nazis haven't logged on

[social network], but with structures in place to prevent the use by nazis and other hate groups

also, how do I distinguish between "I didn't create any output that day" and "I did but I forgot to log it"

accidentally lost some log entries due to a fuckup in migrating to a new laptop.
I need to find a more reliable solution
