I'm having an issue (and it's been ongoing) with https://guillotines.masto.host/ and the fact that the certificate is "invalid". I'm not sure how to contact anyone to fix this. Mind you, it looks like it's *intended* to be down. Perhaps I should just stop trying to federate at all. Seems all very "non-standard behaviour" to me.
I think that last night I decided that there is a good reason to be running my own instance. It's not so much that it gives me anything that is of obvious benefit. But one benefit is that it helps me examine some of the issues that go on with the fediverse, because as an admin, you have to deal with them.

Do you know of any local breweries that are union shops?
I keep running into examples of Breweries that treat their employees like shit because they can get away with it. Here's a job posting from Rogue as an example.
I want to find union brewers 'cause union brewed beer tastes like solidarity, and solidarity is easily one of the world's finest flavors.

I tried to find a way to explain that I had stated the facts as I understood them, that I had tried to find other facts, and then this person ends up sending private messages...
That has meant I suspended that instance as well (possibly wrongly, as the person may just be a user there, not a moderator/admin as it appears).
And since I've been feeling like killing this instance anyway, I don't really care unless I hear from my users I'm doing something wrong.

Then I saw someone complaining about the "witch hunt" (that in itself is pretty troubling language) around this, and someone asked, "what happened" and I explained what I'd seen. Only to be told, "It didn't happen that way, read this."
Which I was *really* hoping would give some clarity which I could go, "damn, I'm sorry, I was wrong," but honestly I read what I could, and could only get deeper into the same conclusion.

I wasn't wanting to say too much of this publicly because I wasn't really sure about it. Several hours ago, we ended up suspending an instance because the owner spoke of working with the FBI, and it appeared to be a willing collaboration. They were careful with their words, and seemed to be saying that. They were *not* in a clear way saying they were forced to do it, and they were saying, "hey it's no big deal."
Curator Classic, I've known for a while, since I finally found a home on mastodon.art.
Sapiencia, has cool pictures, but I didn't try to read the Catalan (which explains why it didn't quite fit any language I could identify)... But still welcome. And plenty of great "media" I'd say...

I have created a new video on Black women in video games. This one is not public yet. It will go public next month. Please enjoy.
I have an odd habit of being irreverent. It's kind of how we deal with the world here. We often confuse people, and then some people actually get offended...
Well, you know what? We never meant to offend you, you too offense. Of course, sometimes we get annoyed too. So we'll try to step back before making rash decisions...
