mkay so. been procrastinating on this but. member intros. how this is gonna work is this post is gonna be kind of a central point and everyone is gonna be a reply to it (bc if it was a thread and one post needed to be changed deleting it would mess with the whole chain). so, click here i guess?

occasionally we forget that one of us has a british accent and then they speak up and it's like,,, whomst

Something we love about the inclusive plural community is the diversity of experiences we see- everyone is so different and it's amazing to hear about their ways of being.

We're all so different- coming from different walks of life, different ways of being, different everything- and yet we all come together because in some shape or form, we're all more than one. That's absolutely incredible.

i think we've also figured out that protags scratch is REAL similar to sans's gaster. they don't have much in the way of specific memories yet so it's hard to say if Anything Happened there or if he just gives off that kind of vibe but, Yikes™

we identified kitty and ht before we found their fictional sources (which is why we only call niko that like half the time and ht is never any of their names from before us, only ht) but theyre also nonhuman, which is a distinct vibe

feeling like protag has actually been here a while, just without a fictotype to attach them to they were just real hard to identify
not sure that distinction matters a whole lot but, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

when u need social graces to live in a society but the only communication type your system has are
- autistic
- double autistic
- silent
- only jokes
- Big Angy
- placation mode
- all of the above

someone is yelling. not any words, just a long continuous sound. a little bit funny but also Not

⚫ nice to find a story that acknowledges the fact that joining a hivemind doesn't have to mean sacrificing your individuality
⚫ it's pretty much just hooking into a telepathic network? and there can be downsides to that (loud, no privacy) but assimilation is just kind of an additional feature writers like to tack on there

Why we block ads. Long. Mild language. 

Tracking, targeted advertising, fingerprinting: This is one of the biggest reasons. Online advertisers use your IP, cookies, what website you viewed them on, your useragent and many other forms of identify information to track you and build a profile of you. This is unacceptable as far as we are concerned.

Speed: Online adverts have a nasty tendency to destroy website load times and even make the website feel slow and bloated. They also often heavily distract from the content that you actually came to see.

Fake ads: Advertising platforms are very poorly moderated. We frequently see ads for fake products, misleading products and some for just straight up fucking scams. Fix your shit advertising platforms.

Malware: This one does not apply as Mich as it used to, but there are still soooo many ads that will offer you badly behaving browser extensions, windows application, Mac applications and offter to speed up your computer or any number of other benefits. You don't need any of theses.

Bandwidth: This one applies to mobile users, and home internet users with bandwidth caps (🖕 Comcast). Adverts user up a lot of your pressious bandwidth. They load images, they load scripts, they load all that tracking,l. Some even load videos, flash objects, silver light content and other bandwidth hogging things. Disabling ads can make a website more than HALF the size is some cases. (You're paying to view these ads with your bandwidth!)

Annoying ads: You know the ones. The ones that flash, make sound, move around. Very annoying. The ones that look like the download button you want but actually aren't, the ones that say click here to finish but they actually mean "finish making this purchase that we started for you in this advert" ugh.

If web advertising was more safe, didn't track you, was better optimized, better moderated, less annoying, less misleading and led just overall crap... We'd allow them so that we can do our part to pay for the bandwidth that we used to load your websites, watch your content, download your things etc. But for now with the state of advertising online, no way. UBlock origin is sticking around.

Grab uBlock Origin and protect yourself from all of the above:

Chrome (and Chromium based) (No Mobile)

Firefox and derivatives (Mobile too!)
Edge

Opera

And more with some tweaking.

re: homestuck 

not that i expect better from plurality in media but god it really does suck that the two depictions we see are "weird alien thing, still fits an extremely medicalized model with conflict and a goal of becoming singular being an assumed part of the experience" and "oh hes not REALLY plural, he just struggles with void identity and has latched on to concepts of kinning and multiplicity as a coping mechanism! this means it is perfectly fine to treat his entire being as a joke"

📫 this post brought to you by: me bringing the question of "am i mspar or am i boldir" back into question, jokingly saying "why not both", and then realizing "wait, why *not* both? brain ghost boldir"
