I've been archiving a selection of web buttons in a previous collection lasting from 2003 to around 2010 when that collection stopped updating
I was able to preserve close to 4,000 buttons. They're an interesting slice of history
meta, reposting from twitter to mastodon
I figured out why it bothers me when people post jokes from twitter without attribution.
It's not that I care about some concept of intellectual property over jokes.
It's that what I came to love best about mastodon was how it was developing its own distinctive posting culture, and it frustrates me to think of mastodon becoming just another distribution node for the posting culture of the place many of us ostensibly sought to leave.
I just needed to get this off my chest.
@velexiraptor @mercurythedragon Idk abt 'less mustache-twirling,' the recent wave of sex purges on social media is largely in response to new, increasingly-punishing and broad anti-sex worker laws. that second shockwave of self-censorship may not be driven directly by active *malice* so much as craven self-interest, but it is surely intentional and directed intentionally against sex workers
and like honestly white supremacists/nazis n shit they're the main ones being like Masterbation/Porn Is Bad and they really recruit people off sites that don't have nsfw content
sites that remove NSFW content really are targeting sex work inherently whether intentional or not. folks really be acting like shit aint work WHEN IT IS and there's not so many sites people can do this work safely/efficiently and sites doing this shit just adds to the problem/villifies sex workers it's so fucked up
tbh im starting to think sites/social media removing nsfw are intentionally going against sex workers and endorcing supremacist/elitist groups/factions on another level when they already don't monitor shit
like they really gonna act like you get all the news or whatever when yr literally taking whole portions of cultures/society out that is nsfw. that's not reporting that's not being accurate to humanity/our cultures or how different people are/what they experience/do
