So from what I can gather the EU made temporary legislation allowing it to monitor email and chats and it may be made permanent soon on April 15. Apparently the public can join in on the discussion. If you're an EU citizen that sounds like a debate to be a part of.

It's so funny to send an email to all the employees with as subject "your department is being dissolved".

I see there are some Darkfriends in here, who deny the Lord Dragon, blessed be his name in the Light, and have decided to make it their mission to give me the business.

The Shadow shall rise across the world, and darken every land, even to the smallest corner, and there shall be neither Light nor safety.
And he who shall be born of the Dawn, born of the Maiden, according to Prophecy,

I am saddened by the news regarding tom79, it highlights a real problem in the fediverse. So far, our interactions with the community have been great though, so thank you for that ❤️


thedonald[.]win is only now starting to (begrudgingly) accept that Biden will be President the 20th (they don't accept he actually won though).

I wonder if they will keep the "thedonald" name, if they will try to redefine their tribe according to some other criterion than Trump, etc... What if Trump leaves the US to escape prosecution as some predict?

I have a morbid curiosity with looking around on this site, it's fascinating
