This year's UK entry is far too generic for #Eurovision
Flooding at Dixton church 'the worst since 1947'
Birbsite rant (part 2)
Nowadays, the 'liked' posts I see are just humble brags, virtue signalling and generally people trying to put on a bullshit façade.
Obviously all of us don't always see eye-to-eye here, but at least in the Fediverse, people are genuine and real and not trying to pretend to the world we're something we're not.
Twitter (and the rest) is what happens when we let corporations be our social gatekeeper.
I detest with a passion how Twitter feels the need to present me with posts I have no interest or connection to, on the sole virtue that the post that has been 'liked' by someone I follow.
These nonsense ways of forcing engagement are the exact reason why I don't feel at home there and the #Fediverse is where I come to have actual fun and chat with real people.
Non-profit networks like this don't force this nonsense on people.
@dredmorbius I just popped my VPN on, just surprised it was a blocked site.
@dredmorbius What website is that? I just clicked on it - forgetting I'm not on my VPN - and it's blocked on UK internet.
@fitheach Oh that's wonderful!
@fitheach I've seen quite a few of them turned into defibrillator stations and a few into miniature lending libraries.
#Overmonnow council seat up for grabs
Monmouth Bridge almost submerged due to rising river Wye. A40 between Monmouth and Ross on Wye is flooded as a result. The road is closed from the Monmouth traffic lights and the Wye Bridge is also closed. - https://i.redd.it/ukvaf44tdph41.jpg - imakeenwon
