#introduction It's ya boi Bytemoth back at it again with some outdated magick and old K6 PCs. I've been procrastinating on an open-source sci-fan universe for the past 9 years, and a website about it for 6; Stopped working on them to run some Tumblr RP blogs for a while.
I'm very asocial, so there won't be much interaction from me unless I think I can add something useful/helpful.

You know what I'm talking about.
You talk to your racist grandma, and you just awkwardly smile and nod, because you know it's WORTHLESS to talk to her about why she can't call POC the "coloreds" anymore.
But you tell your friend on here, "Hey, comrade, that was in bad taste"
Why? Because you know your friend will listen.
That's what we are trying to do with you.
it's a sign of respect, not of hatred. Please stop acting like we hate you.
Important thing for all who can see this.
If someone confronts you on your racism or sexism... that means that they like you enough and trust you enough to hear and listen.
If they didn't think you were redeemable, if they didn't think you were worth it, they would roll their eyes and just avoid you. Block on sight, shut down in conversation.
If we confront you about it, no matter how bruskly it may seem. It means that we legitimately think you are better.
@SPOOPZ Cool drawings you made there, be a shame if someone were to... add colour to them and make them more sharper...
there are lots of lefty folks who start companies! lots of folks who have good ideas and are generally agreeable! lots of folks who, at face value, are trustworthy
but google started with "don't be evil" and now they're Google
the capitalist machine eats the best of our intentions and platitudes from trustworthy sources become weak points for exploitation. the good people aren't enough to stop corrosion – and insisting on safeguards isn't distrust
I added parallax scrolling starfields to #terminalphase and they look AMAZING
Like if buzzfeed person had perused fedi TL and couldn't find info about pellets guy, he could have tooted "hey what's the deal with pellets guy" and probably gotten a response in 5 minutes or less.
but twitter teaches has you not to ask things because asking stuff doesn't make you look smart. You find stuff, so then you can rub it in other peoples' faces how smart you are for knowing it. That's how "brand" social media works
