@fribbledom this is the most weirdly cyberpunk thing I've seen all week

did you fall from heaven? because holy shit you have like 20 eyes and 3 sets of wings Are You Okay

I've been playing the new Streets of Rage 4 on and off for a little bit and its just so glorious.

Started on normal mode and got my arse handed to me, dialled it back to easy, learnt how it works, blazed through the story, and now I'm back to normal and slowly working through it stage by stage.

The fighting is very fluid, the looks are beautiful, the difficulty is really nice and somehow its very very replayable :)

@knownrobes I clicked idly on this before reading the full message and it's a fantastic shot for perspective weirdness, at first I thought some kind of bridge, then it flipped around into a tower. Someone else I showed got a downwards well also :)

Fediverse question for anyone not on m.s:

Do you feel like at least one of you instance moderators knows who you are, individually?

:boost_requested:

Feel free to also reply with what instance you're on.

❓ Poll: Have you ever had to report content in your feed to a fediverse mod?

Followup: how fast was the response time?

Boosts requested; I'm writing an article about the moderation of decentralized networks.

Microsoft is using Github moderation tools to bully people that are correctly using Github to call attention to their attempt to bully another FOSS project.

Lunch with humans got delayed, figured I'd just slack off for 10 minutes to relax my brain and read a book *then* do lunch. Instead I looked at the thing I was investigating for work.

Dammit I think I just nerd sniped myself.

@anthracite I think its because I came to it around 00 at Uni as someone who'd already had a few years of net and bumped into Subgenii, Discordians, Fortean Times , etc and watched stuff like the Xfiles mass popularise conspiracy theories.

To me it felt like a continuation of those sorts of themes, like a whole look behind the curtain that was being waved aside anyway.

Because yeah I was primed by other stuff and didn't think about the fringeyness of conspiracy by post at the time of writing.

Spotify is buying up all the popular podcasts and removing them from the commons in order to drive you to their platform.

Podcasts have somehow stayed open access, built on standards, and just (mostly) work. Moving them to a proprietary platform just so a few people (ie: not you) can make money is bad for everyone who isn't making money. (ie: you.)
