DZ: poopy poo

Poopgate seems like a fitting scandal, but also kind of a nothingburger.

Yet this solution, too, was short-lived after a Secret Service supervisor from the Trump/Kushner detail left an unpleasant mess in the Obama bathroom at some point before the fall of 2017, according to a person briefed on the event. That prompted the leaders of the Obama detail to ban the agents up the street from ever returning.

Real talk: Sounds like they may have been justified in not wanting these people using their poop station.

Out of curiosity, what exchange do people use for day trading Bitcoin or ethereum? Most places seem to have crazy spreads and fees. You'd get completely chewed up without massive price moves.

Bad news for the rail fans. (I do find it hard to believe septa has many rail fans, but it'd be a really weird codename for an antifa group.)

A SEPTA railfan Telegram channel was put on a list of alleged “antifa” chatrooms that’s been circulating among the far-right (maybe because “SEPTA” is a scary sounding acronym?) Anyway they’ve spent a day banning dozens of trolls who refuse to believe they just love SEPTA

Oh, look, it's bigly class action time. Parler users sue Amazon. One claim is that AWS somehow violated the TOS between parler and users, which is pretty novel. Plus all of this:

Defendant AWS’s intentional conduct, in fact, caused Plaintiffs to suffer highly unpleasant mental reactions, outrage, anger, frustration, shame, humiliation, chagrin, disappointment, worry, inconvenience, and/or severe emotional distress.

Some conferences suffer from this more than others. In my experience, CCC was the absolute worst.

Next time I'm moderating a Q&A, I'm going to ask each person who approaches the mic "For what purpose does the person at the microphone rise?" and then insist that they start by saying "I rise to ask a question, which will be stated succinctly and in the form of a question".

Is a 30 day cookie expiry annoying? Does it have any value? I implemented it to prevent unknowingly stolen cookies from being used forever, but can't really figure out many scenarios where that would happen.

Here's a sentence I wasn't expecting. I don't post a lot of SwimSwam links because there's not usually much overlap with my other interests.

Honk uses sqlite, so the database is builtin, so therefore you can't run honk in a container. Thank you for coming to my big cloud tech talk.

@carcinopithecus I am mostly thinking of the case where somebody issues an apology to avoid trouble, the immediate danger passes, and then they go out and say they were never sorry, explicitly admitting the first apology was a lie. Never seems to be much consequence for that, since people would rather move on than start over with the punishment. A flaw in the system.

Maybe apologies should come with NDAs, where the consequences are automatic if you become unsorry.

Do apologies come with implied warranties? Like somebody says they're sorry, then a year later says actually they weren't sorry. Can you get a refund or a new apology?

Literally half the complaint is about AOC playing Among Us on Twitch but she didn't include any poor people in the stream like she talks about on Twitter. Not a lawyer myself, but don't see this one going very far.

It will never get better.


@ddale8: So I spoke to Ben Costiloe, tweeter of the inaccurate mega-viral impeachment tweet, to tell him it was wrong and that I'd be doing a fact check. He said good-naturedly: "Tear it a new one. Go for it, baby!" He said he's just a "nobody" dude who saw the info on his FB feed. 1/

@ddale8: Costiloe said he never knew if the info he tweeted was true - it just showed up on his Facebook and "made me feel good," and he thought he'd share. He said, "I don't want to mess up the world. I just wanted to make me feel good. It turns out it made a lot of people feel good." 2/

@ddale8: Costiloe said he had just 200 followers at the time he tweeted (now more than 2,700); he's just a guy living with diabetes in Texas. He said he was amazed at how viral the tweet went given his low following: 181,000 retweets and counting. 3/

@ddale8: When I asked if he'd delete the tweet now that he knows it had a bunch of inaccuracies, he said, "I'm too stupid to know how to fix this." So...that is the story of how bad info got seen by millions of people in 2021. The end.
