One by one the strong men stepped up to the anvil and attempted to pull the sword out. None succeeded.
At last, Granny Nelson stepped up, pulled the sword out, and tossed it aside.
She lifted the anvil triumphantly and everyone cheered her as the new king of blacksmiths.

YOU: doesn't that mean saying "RAID array" is redundant?
US: Of course. That's what the R is for.

Does anyone #onhere have any anecdotes or experience with cases where fedi instances operators/community moderators had to deal with outbreaks of misinformation/conspiracy theories?

If this has occurred, how was it handled?

“The slogans ‘Make America Great Again’ and ‘Take Back Control’ in the US and Britain respectively, spoke to a perceived decline of white supremacy and nostalgia for imperial influence. These desperate clamours of nationalism, as Sivamohan Valluvan puts it, throw scandal, absurdity, violence and the renewed resistance from the left, back into a chaotic political arena.“

indiatimes.com/technology/scie "Researchers Develop Liquid That Absorbs And Stores Solar Energy For 18 Years", Monit Khanna Updated on Mar 29, 2021, 14:52 IST.

Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden made a liquid called MOST (Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage System) which you can store 250 watt hours of energy per kilogram of liquid (twice as good as a tesla battery), holds for 18 years.

Unsure what its made *from* or how intensive it is to make, research continues.

I’ve been doing some research and honestly Quakerism seems perfect but I don’t want to jump the gun. I want to do a lot more research on it in addition to attending local Quaker meetings to get a feel.

I'm glad April Fool is over, because now it can be April Magician. Then tomorrow it can be April High Priestess.
