PV 4 Thoughts, changes

Look, here’s the thing. I’m not going to say what you want. I have my views and perspectives that I believe in. If you need me to have a specific posture to mimic your particular sensibilities for cooperation, then we’re just not going to get along.

But if you’re about equality, justice and fairness for _all_ peoples, I’m in the fight with you. Every day. Even if you don’t dig me.

My commitment to progress is not based on being liked. I just want us to get free.

Aye folks. I don't how other instances will operate, but I can promise Social will be a safe space for us to talk openly about issues without wasting effort on people that don't want to listen.

I want honest convo on my instance, but if one cannot do that respectfully and without resorting to childish taunts, they will be shown the door.

I'm the big brother you call when someone is getting on your nerves.

I got your back. Always.

I love . Let me do a proper one.

I'm Ro. I design, develop, overthink and on occasion, make beats. Check out: thetwelfth.house And before you ask, yes. I am.

I'm a mediaphile which means I'm always watching or listening to something. Follow trakt.tv/users/are0h and/or last.fm/user/AreOh for details

I'm also a history buff and I think a lot about social theory. Ha, you've been warned.

Needless to say, I got a lot going on. But I'm pretty cool... generally.

I'm gonna try and get through my follow requests list soon.

Ha, hang in there.

I also want to shout out to the community around Fipamo that is building over on Patreon.

They've been banging around with Fipamo beta for about a month and some change now (yes, they get updated first, hahaha) and their enthusiam and feedback have been invaluable. Fipamo would not be where it if it wasn't for them.

If you want to support Fipamo, that's the place to do it.

For now :doge:

I am constantly working on Fipamo to improve it's stability because this is what I will use as a base for all PV related projects. The check out what is currently being worked on, check the repo.

And I want to give a big shout out to @sunflowers, @kemonine, @garbados and @virtualwolf who have really helped identify some trouble areas early and helped me clean them up.

I can't say enough how their early thoughts contributed to getting me to this point.

So if you've been following me for awhile, you've seen me mention Fipamo from time to time as one of the projects I've focused on.

Fipamo at it's core is a blog platform that started as I promise to myself to get writing again but only with software that I built so I can add features that I need and to share it with other folks that want something easy to use and have full control of their data.

It took a bit but it's finally in beta.

I don't need the Emmy's to tell me what shows are good.

I have eyes and I'm not a bigot. It's not that hard.

Living in America will have you thinking there's a problem with humanity and not a bunch of regressive bigots with too much money that they got by killing everyone and taking their stuff.

** walks over broken and smoldering discourse about racism, gets a juice from the fridge, leaves **

LOL, Pleroma people don't even like each other, hahahaha...

The fact I generally don't value the thoughts and opinions of people that feel the need to ignore the context of how I experience of the fedi and attempt to tell me what I like and don't like only makes bigots upset.

People that want to talk in good faith have no problem with asking questions and admitting they got something wrong to preserve a positive exchange.

Only bigots will defend their ignorance instead of just apologizing and let it go.

LOL, this person came in swinging WILD saying I support Masto (???) over Pleroma AND I'm pushing people to use corporate social media platforms because I'm talking about how many hateful people use Pleroma.

LOL, ME?? This person clearly has no idea who they are talking and are upset because I won't take assume they are trying to engage in good faith.

Ha, I can't stop laughing.

I'm a creative tech dude that always happens to be Black. On the internet this affects how people view and interact with me. That's just how it is. You cannot separate that context from online projects just because you don't want to talk about it.

I am under no obligation be kind or accommodating to anyone that thinks erasing a significant part of my experience on the web is being 'neutral'. Because it's not.

I don't care who this offends. Either accept that context or just shut up.

The leaps of logic people make because 1. they don't know my background in tech and 2. don't have the common decency to just ask before running wild with those assumptions will never cease to amuse me.

White people get really upset when I dismiss their completely ignorant assertions because they feel their assumptions of me should be accepted. As if I am obligated to be the person they've made up in their minds.

Ha but I'm the Bad Guy™ b/c I don't entertain their prejudiced bullshit.

Ha, I wasn't even trying to set the fedi on fire today.

Oh well.

And of course, they are a Pleroma user... because of course.

LOL when white people start some bullshit and get upset you treat it like the bullshit it is.

A play in two parts.
