techbro red flags
1: Framing polite, reasonable requests as harassment. (see: the GIMP name debacle)
2: Framing critique as harassment. (see: anyone who takes a notion to suck up all the fediverse to mine for interesting tidbits)
3: Framing asking for different phrasing as censorship.
4: Framing boundaries as censorship.
5: Refusing to listen to vulnerable people when they say a planned feature will open avenues to cause harm.
Shooting in Norway, Neo-nazi, White terrorism
Just a reminder, that on Saturday, we almost had another brutal mass shooting here in #Norway
Philip Manshaus, a fascist pig, killed his step-sister, and was in the middle of trying to shoot up a mosque in Bærum for his "race war irl", when Mohamed Rafiq and Mohamed Iqbal, two elderly men that heroically managed to stop the bastard.
The swine smiled when he was in court, just like Breivik how did. He also filmed the attack, taking inspiration from the Christchurch massacre.
Give no platform for these parasites, not an inch.
Happy International Cat Day
(this is not my cat)
a bit of a rant about that one project
my goodness these unittests were/are a mess. most of them didn't do any actual testing, they just made sure things didn't raise an exception
which is fine for some things but not say, i dunno, serialisation code where a mistake could (and does) cause data loss for your users!
oh and mocking the wrong objects so tests look like they do something useful but still pass if you try to break them on purpose
and this fucker writes programming books now!
