We need to remember there are people who don't want discussion, resolution, acceptance of different viewpoints. I'm betting these are the haters. I think a good faith try is fine. If it's attacked, mute, block. I admit to being resentful of the effort that can impose on people just peacefully here.
Isa-Lee Wolf @IsaLeeWolf
So I have an idea about how to deal with this.

If someone says a response was "hurtful," maybe talk about it? Why it was hurtful? What was the intention?

Apologize if appropriate?

We can act like actual people here, it's OK.

Yes. Better to stay, if possible, even if it means fighting back, than surrendering another platform to haters. Fwiw, I've got your back.
Acey Deecey 🚀🚀 @mcgarrygirl78
OK, all these attacks and friends are hurting me and I really need to.do some thinking. I don't want to leave Spoutibke. But more importantly, I don't want it to be a place we all run from because the assholes take over and everything is sour.

I notice it refers to "eligible" purchases. Sounds like a commercial form of SNAP. A trap.

I got this email ad and it made me so sad. To think that people have to charge their groceries and pay over time. It’s tantamount to payday loans. You’d never get ahead.

You're right about board of ed candidates. You need to be up on the current talking points to spot whether a dem is a fascist in disguise, or a fundie with pr. I have voted against someone who seemed harmless at first then as I read on, used those Mofo for Liberty code words. They didn't get in
Heidi Hafeken @HeidiHafeken
BOE and local elections are the training ground. It's more difficult to figure which party they're with at the BOE level, but not in the local, county and state level. Those are the people making the rules you live with on the street where you live.

Myles Higgins @Myles_Away
I'm sick of the stalking & targeting of Canadian accounts, my own included. Not sure what else to call it when people who are blocked use back doors to see, screenshot & attack you.

I'm currntly down with #Covid but when I return, a treat for everyone. Double the Canadian centric content. Fuck 'em.

I wonder if they're in group dms, rather than the main stage. Can't blame them for curating their own group, if that's the case. I don't know what happened, just missing them.
Isa-Lee Wolf @IsaLeeWolf
I thought that our lovely Canadians were all on vacation or something...I hope they come back soon, because they really drive the community energy.

It never occurred to me they'd been driven off the platform. That feels really wrong.

I think this means it's urgent? I agree that it is, if I'm right in my understanding of what I'm guessing is a sports metaphor? 😉

We started this journey in 2021. However, we now are in the fourth Quarter...first and ten on the 30 yard line on the opponent's side...with 3 minutes to go. We cannot fumble the ball at the goal line. It's that simple. So Dems/Indies you have your homework.

No, please know how many people like your spouts, enjoy them, and maybe just block people who object and complain, especially when they haven't done anything as interesting themselves? Anyway thank you, and I hope you'll continue.
Bev Turner @Bevturner
That's it!!! No more fucking history spouts, not that it matters!!! I am not a fucking historian!! I try to find interesting articles for the day in history!! END OF STORY!!! I'm OUT!

Thank you, I didn't know about the foster care system.
I like to note good things done by govs. I don't like, such as Whitman's TDR, which has preserved my region just in time from being nearly trampled by "developers" meaning rapacious builders.
Heidi Hafeken @HeidiHafeken
Hillsborough has fewer than 100 homes w/JCPL, they always lose power, the other 39K have PSEG, they don't.

Corzine put focus and $ into NJ's foster care system. We have far fewer children stuck in that circle of hell because of his actions.

But only if it came with a young Colin Firth. Remember the scene in Bridget Jones where her friends are trying to cheer her up, with the wet shirt scene all cued up?

I have pseg and we rarely have blackouts, unlike the other power company which can be felled by a mild spell.
What was the other good thing Corzine did?
Heidi Hafeken @HeidiHafeken
Since then, PSE&G has worked to harden the system. JCP&L is eating paste in a corner.

1 of the 2 great things Corzine did as gov is demanding more & more financial guarantees to keep JCP&L from acquiring PSE&G.

I've occasionally seen troops of half a dozen wild turkeys peacefully walking right across the road, nemmind there's cars. Geese will take on anyone! Drive near, they'll land on your windshield, blinding your view. I saw a car go completely off the road, get stuck in a plowed field after this.
Blanche Davidian @BlancheKicksShins
We have huge herds of wild turkeys in the Santa Cruz mts. Sometimes as many as 25-30....they leave a huge mess behind and have pecked at our garage door

As usual, several books: The Fire Next Time, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and Tom Lake, Patchett. The first two far the best.

Despite sound bytes to the contrary, NJ's legislature isn't filled w/loathing for the other side. Maybe due to NJ's weirdest political tradition, NJCC Walk to Washington train trip where pols, business leaders & those who want to meet them go to DC & back by train.
