Like, you can't even click to view. Why is it there? I mean I understand the design consideration of remjndi g user that filter is in place and it's hiding content, but there should at least be a flag preference about whether it's actually visible or not.
The whole pt for a csrtain use case is too reduce noise. This is wayyyyyy too noisy. I will absolutely put out a pr if this hasn't been suggested, but I doubt that. Don't have spoons rn to dig thru github and check
Oof, really wish #Mastodon didn't show a bunch of "filtered" messages with toots filtered. The UI is great for creating filters. Context, etc is very useful granularity.
But the whole point of a filter is to hide stuff. If the UI shows a reminder of all the content ur hiding and clutters up the tl, it defeats so much of the purpose.
If anybody knows if this has been implemented on a fork of the project, but otherwise might take a crack at doing that, cause this seems suboptimal

US Sen Merkley, armed with #DHS leak, pushes for perjury investigation of Kirstjen Nielsen Show more
These deportation terrorists literally planned to prosecute refugee parents to sow chaos in the system. 1M in case backlogs.
[A senator on Friday asked the FBI to open a perjury investigation into Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen for statements she made to Congress about the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border.]

Someone just posted this but I think it might have been deleted so I'll spread the sentiment.
The #fediverse is an amazing project but we need to better leverage its potential for political change.
I'm not gonna go through the urgent list of horrors we face globally, but damn y'all, what are our plans to meaningfully address this on a large scale?
This isn't sanctimony or shaming. I'm in the same boat we all are
How do we turn the #fediverse into a more effective political organizing space?
Trump, obstruction of justice, eliciting perjury Show more

It's so easy to get a bit numb from the constant assault of horrendous policy and vitriol. Lol, vids like this bring life.
Fuck condescension and "you shouldn't be surprised". We absolutely have to encourage and direct righteous outrage and disbelief.
CARDI IS PISSED Y'ALL. let's all be pissed _and_ productive.

#AskMastodon Looking for Romantic tragedies (plays, opera, novels, etc.) from any time period. I’m outlining a dialogue-heavy satire about a cat who is turned into a man and must navigate a human dinner party, and am aiming for flowery, archaic language that contrasts with a modern setting.
I’m starting with Shakespeare’s tragedies and will happily watch and/or read any recommendations. Questions welcome. Boosts will be blessed 🖋📚☕️
Gushing about #Rust and misc programming language esoterica Show more
Rust's notion of memory "ownership" with respect to scoping and avoiding the pitfalls of either garbage collection or manual memory allocation / deallocation is fucking awesome!
seriously, this makes so much sense when you think about it, and the compiler helps you out. Super efficient, yet incredibly manageable.
Way impressed by the design aspects of the language I've seen so far.

OrgSpace is a social media instance on the Mastodon network built by, and for, community organizers. We believe social media is a critical tool for political education, relationship building, mobilizing folks; however, facebook, twitter and other mainstream networks have opted time and again for profit and commercializing personal data regardless of the consequences.
Mastodon is a decentralized, but federated network. This means that when you join organizing.social, you get to interact with everyone you choose to on the wider Mastodon network; but you also get to see locally scoped content (from this instance) and help build a network particularly focused on building community and organizing those around us against oppressive systems and towards a society rooted in equity and global justice.
Setting up this instance has been a project of PDX Outreach for Justice, but we want this to be a global network of organizers and welcome moderators, admins, and engineers, and others who would be interested in contributing and shaping this process
