Ko-fi is now following suit and utterly and completely cracking down on adult content
DO NOT say suggestive/adult things in the comment fields of your PayPal/Ko-fi transactions
DO NOT directly, publicly link your PayPal/Ko-fi identities in your adult-oriented art posts
DO NOT keep a lot of money in your PayPal account. Transfer it to your bank often, where they can't seize it and take it from you
Artists and commissioners use good judgement, it's a balancing act from both sides

From @kew in https://knzk.me/@kew/102101732761034170
the internet is more than a luxury at this point, access to it is a right. without decent level speeds and high availability, entire swaths of the population are completely cut off for what too many of us take for granted. i'm talking about voip job interviews, online work in general, valuable skills that so many of us learn through our computers. the ability to self-teach.
municipalize the ISPs, abolish profit, bring the infrastructure to those who don't have it!
with regards to microblog.pub, is there a way to swith the existing light/dark themes from the existing UI, or does the theme in use have to be set via .scss before the installation process begins?
@halcek I believe that writing more and better correlates to how well you can focus being a writer first and an editor later. Being both at the same time imposes a huge overhead on your cognitive capacity.
After watching the documentary of XBand I can conclude that online console gaming didn't chage much since the 90's. They had problems with cheaters as well as people message bombing other users harrasing them and even quitters (people that disconnects when they are losing the game).
Definitely the problem is not the internet. It's people.
"I get a hangover from the weekend... because I do nothing. I go for walks, read a book, ask my kids whether they think there are more cats than animals... I work on old recreational maths puzzles. I wander over to my friend's house for tea to catch up on how he's doing. We check for caterpillars in his garden on the way out. I plant wildflowers in my own.
The hardest part of doing nothing is learning to live with all the people who can't."
Some interesting articles I found recently looking for a contemporary equivalent to Marcuse's One-Dimensional Man:
We Need to Talk About Digital Hygiene… u FLOSS?
In an #economic system, where entity/person A has to exchange something to get something else for it from person B, there's of course never accounting for the fact that while person A might have a need for thing B, they still, in some cases, may really need thing A too, but in order to get B, A has to be exchanged, even though one might not afford to give away A, and still be in need of B anyway.
In that basic sense, the idea of a ''free'', or ''fair'' #market is a deceptive concept altogether.

Reading an insider article about the demise of GooglePlus and found a couple of interesting points bought up:
- infinite scrolling of content can be exhausting to the visitor, because there's never an end to the dose of content, and thus a sense of accomplishment, or completition is never mentally achieved
- important information cannot be ranked, because pre-determining content quality for the reader encourages lazy attention span and lack of the need for concentration
