The name Clout Barony implies the existence of a complex hierarchy of aristocratic fealty and landownership, which would mean there are even more powerful Clout Dukes, who themselves pledge allegiance to an almighty Clout King.

@KitsuneAlicia
And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.
Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;
And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

@KitsuneAlicia
There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows calling with their shimmering sound;
And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum-trees in tremulous white;
Robins will wear their feathery fire
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

@dirtycommo this is one of the reasons why I like piracy.

The other reason is that the range of things I can listen to on a computer is not defined by licensing deals.

i love piracy:

''oh! good! the internet cut out for a good 2 hours and i didn't even notice when it came back on, because all my movies and music are stored locally''

@DissidentKitty it seems like the wording implies "if it's no longer commercially viable *to YouTube*". It sounds to me like it's an "out" for them to allow them to ban ppl whose content doesn't explicitly breach the TOS but is causing people who do business with Google to shy away from Youtube.

Possibly a response to more widespread coverage of "alt-right" radicalization via Youtube?

YouTube is updating their Terms of Service on 10 December, 2019. It presents an awful possibility for the future of creators on the platform. It seems they will be able to terminate your channel if it's "no longer commercially viable."; in other words, wherever they feel like.

Mastodon experiment update:

I was supposed to be off Birdsite till tomorrow morning but went back an hour ago to promote some stuff.

Immediately found myself unconsciously scrolling through the TL and getting angry. There has to be something fundamentally wrong with a platform that makes you feel that way.

i get that people tend to mass migrate over there specifically because it’s the official server and sorta the de facto one to point to when you’re getting someone on board but man if having it open doesn’t defeat the point of decentralizing

wordsmuth boosted

honestly i don’t love that mastodon.social ends up as the default instance so much of the time. smaller instances just work better imo

Hey new mastodon users. A lot of us won't follow you back unless you have posted before and have an avatar. Otherwise you look like a bot.

So, if you're getting started try dropping an #introduction post in there first before you start clicking that "follow" button a bunch.
