@Gina This is why I think you were right to question if Mastodon would get dragged into G*b discussion:

Note link in paragraph that reads "Although Gab was deplatformed, it managed to survive by shifting to decentralized technologies and has shown a degree of innovation" goes to an article titled "Challenges in the Decentralised Web: The Mastodon Case"

@scully about half of his discography probably - once my brain gets on a Joe Jackson kick it takes a while to wear off

Especially cute for me, given my $day_job the past couple of years working on a tree farm growing the things! :-)

Hey, so one downside of reversible suspensions in Mastodon 3.3.0 is that due to an oversight, the suspension is only communicated to the account's followers, which is usually far from everyone who needs to know about it. Due to this, a lot of already suspended accounts keep getting reported from other servers. Until we release a fix, consider checking if the account still exists on the original server whenever possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

im on a quest for patches

so im on etsy and i don't wanna buy BLM gear from white people... anybody got recs for Black Owned Shops?

Look, I'm not a person who rushes to judgement, but if your username contains "1488" I'm just going to drop the banhammer now and save us all some time.

FYI You can use youtube-dl to download the subtitles too

If you already got the video and just want the subtitles:
youtube-dl --write-sub --sub-lang en --skip-download URL

Where "URL" is the link

This skips the downloading of the video and just gets the English subtitles

Or if you want the auto-generated subtitles:
youtube-dl --write-auto-sub --sub-lang en --skip-download URL

German is "de", Japanese is "jp" and so on...

VLC should be able to play your video with the downloaded subs
