Remember when Woz was exiled to that office in the phantom zone triangle of Stevens Creek, 280, and Lawrence?

What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us
For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him
The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people
And it's mostly women who get pushed out
So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable
Please take a moment to write MFF an email about banning Milo, it is worth the five minutes

Curate your own Fediverse
* Use filters liberally to remove posts that annoys you
* Mute or block other people or bots who get boosted into your timeline if you don't want to see them again
* Try to remember to not click on CW's for stuff that will leave you feeling worse
And you never have to explain why
You can do so for reasons that are entirely "selfish" or "petty"
E.g. "Their jokes were crass so I muted them"
Make the Fediverse a place that's good for you
