Freenode, personal experience +/-
The Freenode implosion made me think of the years I spent there. I helped a lot of people, many ungrateful and more angry at me than any customer in my half a decade in retail. I remember also drama with a channel owner who wouldn't moderate a channel leading to duplicate channels with different rules on moderation. I remember meeting a lot of awesome people, many I still follow on birdsite.

Their job to catch slaves has never changed since the inception of policing.
imagine if there was a feminist movement against human trafficking that centered the rights, agency, and well-being of domestic and agricultural laborers, instead of a feminist movement for increased criminalization of sex work (which, of course, makes sex workers more vulnerable to being trafficked because it's more dangerous to operate openly) under the guise of concern for the victims of human trafficking. wouldn't that be something?
@fribbledom Text to speech still blows my mind even to this day.
@mbrubeck I'm drowning in this new information. *hicc*
