it's not called a "suggestion queue" is it. or an "affection queue" or even an "appreciation queue".

that right there tells you all you need to know about the power dynamics inherent in the situation even WITHOUT getting into those Problematic Dipswitches.

I've been researching very small raster fonts for wasmbox and stumbled across a real life example of a 3x4 pixel font while out walking. It even supports subpixel rendering 😉

“cryptocurrency” is not currency. it has none of the essential or useful features of currency. you might as well be trading bags of rice or krugerands
