So, people on Pleroma, am I posting from ben@lubar.me (the correct address), ben@mastodon.lubar.me (an incorrect address that still kinda makes sense) or ben@mastodon.local.lubar.me (wtf)


 
hey so!!! are you asking a specific question online and not getting any help?

make a second account and answer your own question incorrectly

people will be piling on to correct you with specific explanations within an hour

it works literally every time ive been doing it for years


 
@itri Well admitting you have a problem is the first step to solving it, so yeah I'd like it if people admitted that normal behavior is causing isolation and ostracizion to an unhealthy level.
Maybe you need a girl who is like you.
She has to like me, whether or not she is like me. Being into the kind of guy I am is what's important. But yeah, having things in common helps. Ultimately all it takes is finding someone who likes you, that you like in return.

Wish I could say I wasn't looking anymore, because I really don't know how to look. But being lonely actually feels bad, has some serious physical consequences, and anyway I'm claiming that society is pressuring me to remain alone, so it's probably incorrect to suggest that I need to stop caving to social pressures and doing what's expected of me.

@Tony Steele I was wondering about that. But I think that's incorrect. We have had some discussions about the definition of "Holocaust", it definitely refers to Jewish victims of Nazi prosecution, opinions on the inclusion of other victims varied.

Those monuments are for all kinds of victims. I think it's important to point that out, especially in today's political climate. The Nazis murdered political opponents, including artists, intellectuals and clergy, sick and disabled people, Sinti and Roma (disrespectfully called gypsies), homosexuals, Jehova's Witnesses and whoever else they wanted to get rid of as well.

They played the "us" vs "them" game. But the line between us and them was fine and it is today.

I think I'll write something like: Memorial for a victim of persecution between 1933-1945 who lived here before being deported. (There is an entry for each plate.)

There are also memorials for survivors. I have seen one for a Sinti girl who escaped on a death march.

@Astheroth 明日照: That'd be an incorrect assessment. The Swiss aren't denying their own opinions, but their own active interference or participation in others' political/military affairs.

My earlier post, however, was more about Switzerland not being part of the EU and still doing pretty well. So I'd call any brexit=world end notions pretty exaggerated silliness.

@switchingsocial Hi. In Twitter, if I start a new tweet with "@name", it will not show up in my "tweets" tab (and to my followers who dont follow the @-ed person) but only in "tweets and replies" tab. But here if I try to start a new message with "@name", it shows up in "Toots" tab also, not just in "Toots and replies". Is this a known function or have I done anything incorrectly?

Why gender studies won't end sexism


“Rippon’s central message is that ‘a gendered world will produce a gendered brain,’” but also that “conclusive findings about sex-linked brain differences have failed to materialize.” Furthermore, in an interview with the Guardian, Rippon says it is “neurofoolishness” to suggest there are any brain differences associated with sex.

In a sample of 5,216 brains, the study found significant differences between the sexes. The amygdala, a region associated with appraising emotion, was larger in men, even when men’s larger overall brain size was taken into consideration. Another study, published last month in Nature’s very own Scientific Reports, found sex differences in grey matter volume among 2,838 participants.

Considering that brain imaging studies cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars, a more effective use of these resources would be to promote a nuanced dialogue around acknowledging these group differences while also emphasizing ... show more

I went to see what #Boeing meant by "Software update" of the #737 Max and it turns out that the 737 Max has no reliability problems, (as I already knew being a Boeing) but it has to do with limiting the control actions of the 'angle on the elevator that a pilot can exercise and in limiting the maximum controls of the stabilizer in the event that the sensor should give the pilot incorrect readings on the angle of attack that would trigger the software that would bring the aircraft back into a situation of control pointing the nose down to regain speed and restore the air lift on the wings, so the pilot from what I see on the flight data pointed the angle of attack of the 737 Max to an angle too acute and triggering the anti stalemate software that brought the 737 Max's nose down as I s... show more

I'm not so harsh as to declare @spherical_trigonometry@pluspora.com an idiot, just misinformed and making some rather weird jumps of incorrect logic. I sense a chunk of the Christian Looney Fringe Conspiracy stuff having been fed them over the years (they also like to claim Dinosaur bones, eggs etc are all fake as it screws with their concepts of the age of the Earth and biblical mythology).

I'm doing the rare thing though and putting a fellow plusporan on my ignore list though, as I have a low tolerance for the Crazy Side of Christianity. I tend to err on the side of science.

I'm also wondering why the passing along of a nearly 4 year old twitter click bait piece was necessary in the first place to start this thread (or am I the only one that looks at dates and sources?).

Is "Mandatory directory listing" unethical?


I notice that the option in Friendica admin settings titled "Mandatory directory listing", which will "Force all profiles on this site to be listed in the site directory", comes with a somewhat scary but non-specific GDPR warning:
Enabling this may violate privacy laws like the GDPR

Now, despite the fact that I live in the United States, I'm not sure how this would effect me since users from anywhere can sign up at my Friendica instance (but that's on me to learn more about, and isn't really at the core of my concerns here in this post). I don't want to do anything that isn't 'on the level' so to speak... but at the same time it seems extremely useful, if I understand correctly, to have users of my instance listed in the directory where they can meet and friend/subscribe to other users of the instance.

Fluoride Overfeed Incident Needs Health Investigation....
In response to a fluoride overfeed in Sandy City, Utah, where drinking water fluoride reached levels that caused nausea, vomiting and other fluoride poisoning symptoms in residents, the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) has sent a letter to the mayor and other public officials asking for a detailed health investigation. The fluoride incident on February 5-7 reportedly caused levels at homes to reach over 100 mg/L, a level close to what caused a fatality and serious illnesses in a previous overfeed accident in Alaska. A level of 100 mg/L is 25 times greater than the EPA standard and 150 times greater than the normal level for water fluoridation.

FAN points out that government officials downplayed possible health effects. Officials said fluoride does not accumulate in the body and therefore should cause no long-term effects. Thi... show more


 
This old FB post almost tricks me into thinking that 2011 Robbie wasn't as brainwashed as he was:

"Yes, Christians are in a battle in this world, but not a battle as the world understands. The battle is to destroy the lack of love in the world, not the people who understand incorrectly. We are to be seeking out people who have not been loved and love them. This is our battle: in a violent world utterly devoid of love, we are to fight against nature by loving everyone we see the way Jesus did."


 

Error Report Summary: 18.05-rc (11.05.2018)


!Friendica Developers

From the Friendica logfile, it's hard to find anything else amongst the thousands and thousands of entries of :

[NORMAL]:dba.php:539:e DB Error 1406: Data too long for column 'title' at row 1
but I've also managed to pick out:

[NORMAL]:dba.php:539:e DB Error 1264: Out of range value for column 'author-id' at row 3
and

[NORMAL]:dba.php:539:e DB Error 1292: Incorrect datetime value: '' for column 'updated' at row 1

I think that the data too long message is being caused by an RSS feed. I would have thought the best solution to this would be to have the title automatically truncate if too long. It's obviously causing an issue as it seems to be attempting it over and over again.

From the PHP log, the only error I'm getting since the switch to the release candidate is:

is your objection limited to moral outrage, or are you saying one or more of the statements you cite is incorrect, and if so, where do you see the errors?
Jamie- not sure what you are referring to. I have plenty of moral outrage, as well as factual outrage, scientific outrage, common decency outrage, etc.

The facts are that the democrats are:
  • the party of infanticide, as well as
  • the end of the world in 12 years party as well as
  • the party of "having children is the same as releasing a murderer from prison" party.
These are their own words. And yet they call US "nutsoids". And I'm not a republican either. I'm a constitutionist.

great summary of the lies of Al Gore, @prep. I guess I'm an adoring fan. :)


 
@Prep, save your puppeteer act for your adoring fans. I don't owe answers to your questions on account of your presenting them, and you don't have an interest in substantive discussion beyond an echo of your own ideas.

@Harmut, you know that there's no point is debating this. People who dislike the conclusions drawn by data find different data. It's impossible for most of us to vet our data, lacking the instruments and substantive knowledge needed to do so as well as the time and funding, so we're always able to set aside inconvenient conclusions by pointing to any other source that says differently, and on the topic of climate science, there are well-funded organizations whose purpose is to produce large bodies of contradictory claims backed by charts and tables, knowing they can't be checked.

@Mudflap, is your objection limited to moral outrage, or are you saying one or more of the statements you cite is incorrect, and if so, where do you see the errors?
