blocking people is always justified

terrible political takes? block
reminds you of your second grade bully? block
un-cwed content that makes you uncomfortable? block
dont like the cut of someones jib? block

The internet is a big place. Learn to treat other people with respect and politeness.

Why is it such a big problem to state that we don't want those assholes hanging around?

They should be the ones to learn how to interact with other human beings politely.

So for people who are constant target of attacks and are already in a fragile state, you shouldn't say that they need to "learn to deal with the internet".

No, we should stop the assholes from harassing other people in the first place. The burden must be on the attacker.

I've seen some people talking about the "No Code of Conduct". That the "internet is a big place, you should prepare yourself to deal with it."

It looks ~cool~, but there's a big problem: it put the burden on the victims of the harassment.

I've been sick for the last few days, and I'm realizing just how much we rely on OTC meds to get us back to work. That is to say, I get to take Mucinex and Tylenol, and nose hose with saline, and it's so much worse than getting any actual decongestant.

why do you think every single actually exciting web replacent tech looks more like www 1.0 than your hairball of weaponized js?

Sir Gawain is relationship goals tbh. I wanna be in a wink-wink-nudge-nudge open-secret bisexual throuple with a lord and his wife.

abolishing gender as in abolishing gender violence... gender liberation as in a future in which nothing constrains our ability to be gay, trans, intersex, illegible, and in general fucking weird
