plural.cafe instance meta (rules rewrite) 

Hello folks! @starfall speaking, we spent some time yesterday rewriting the rules section with an eye on making paragraphs shorter and our values more explicit.

They haven't taken effect yet; the draft can be seen at hackmd.io/@starfall/plural-caf

Some things are added to the old rules, not just reworded:

* "blatant advertising" -> "corporate advertising", with a specific exception for self-promotion
* explicitly sex and kink positive, but these must still be content warned appropriately
* explicitly sex worker positive, give or take some legal requirements
* required content warnings section added, with some of the most common triggers we know of
* some changes to the bot account policy - bots must be opt-in, not opt-out, automated posts shouldn't be on public
* more explicit federation policy around suspending some servers that don't block servers we suspend

Feel free to comment and suggest changes here or @ us directly.

watched some classic tetris world championships yesterday and it almost restored faith that competitive games can still be fun and folks can lose not just gracefully but celebrate people who do better than them

probably helps that they're competing on score on two consoles simultaneously and not directly against each other

i like the way we phrased that

"thinking a lot about wheels" like, just, independently of anything. wheels are good though, love to see round things spin

@extinct Imagine being an accomplished author and having such a bad take about words.

got a 2019 nissan sentra as a rental and just

there is zero point in creating vehicles like this. it's not fast, it's not fun, it's not spectacularly fuel-efficient, the brakes are terrible, it sucks more to ride around in than your average bus or train, and it can't carry a whole damn couch inside of it. why does this exist.

currently staring at a 400+ instance allow list since we're considering switching over, and wondering if this will actually be more maintainable than the blocklist is

The truly oppressed are the nocturnal. Those of us who can't do shit during "normal business hours." When we're awake, the stores are closed, phones are off, everything is shut down.

Fuckin night crew, rise up!

legal transition, (+) 

I finally had to get a state id card at the DMV after putting it off for years, and i didn't know till i got there that our state allows X as a gender marker and doesn't require a letter to change it, so i just

casually changed my marker to X

nice

re: last boost (from @firedemon, regarding monsterpit doing less dangerous things when servers change keys) - we cherry-picked this change over to plural.cafe, should deploy in about half an hour
