I created a temporary local account on my brother's Windows machine. It allowed a local account at first but trying to sign in to it at a later date prompts me to login with a Microsoft account. Even if I had a Microsoft account I wouldn't want to login because it is my brother's machine. I see no reason to setup sync for my wallpaper.

Only way to bypass is to click "Back" and select "Skip for now". I wonder how many times I will be allowed to skip before being forced.

With pirated subtitles, you might notice that there's really weird things in them, e.g. capital i might be replaced with lowercase L in places where it makes no sense. This is because DVD subtitles are actually implemented as bitmaps rather than text, and converting them into plaintext SRT subtitles more suitable for interoperability and sharing involves optical character recognition (OCR for short). Since I and l are not easily distinguishable in sans-serif fonts, you end up with that.

I just saw an article arguing that twitter "was a leader on content moderation" and "what happens now?"

My first reaction was to laugh out loud, but then I realized its NOT ACTUALLY WRONG as far as centralized social media goes

Twitter did the absolute bare minimum (if that) but still did more than other platforms

Thats not to say they're doing anything anywhere near the realm of good, but woweeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Hello Twitter refugees! Allow me to teach you about one of the things that makes Mastodon much chiller: the CONTENT WARNING. 

@anthracite You're welcome! It was trending in the immediate advent of #ElonMusk buying #Twitter, so I figured it'd be good to add the tag so that people can more easily see this bit of advice.
