Hot take of the day I read on fedi:

"Cancelling people is good, actually"

Yikes

@katnjiapus depends if we are cancelling a nazi or someone normal lol

meta pol 

@jeder If they're outright fascist, sure. 'Cancelling' someone can be brutally effective at cleaning out the trash, so to speak.

But it's also like the worst of middle-school culture, delegating to one or more persons to judge who or who isn't worthy to be socialized with.

Some folks will just read the callout post, and not look into what the parts are in conflict over, or what the actual evidence of wrongdoing is. And that's concerning, especially when the damage is already done...

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus tbh that was how my previous singleuser instance got "cancelled", just because i went to defend one guy from the part of fediverse i am in, you might know about this but idk, polarfuchs got "cancelled" for using husky, then his whole instance for some stupid reason, and so i got called a "nazi enabler" lmfao

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus and few instances actually defederated with me then just because of this thing, all because of kyzh, as always lmfao

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus wait, it wasn't polarfuchs but velatrill, polarfuchs is an instance admin, cybre.club btw

re: meta pol 

@jeder I'm vaguely familiar with it. Fedi meta drama kind of flies over my head; I guess I'm not following the right people or something.

The Husky thing is a clusterfuck, lol

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus it sure is, it was called a nazi app or some shit like that just because it removed the gab rickroll thing

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder I tried to read into each of the defederation posts for a while, but it's impossible to get a grasp of the situation in most cases

it's funny that self-proclaimed ancoms still yearn for a central authority to tell them what's bad or not (:

re: meta pol 

@namtari @jeder Don't know if it was a jab, or not. But it's it's less "yearning for central authority" and having a persons or persons that are knowledgeable on the meta, especially like you pointed out, it can be daunting to keep track of everything.

There's also something to be said that anarchists are not against all hierarchies, just unjust ones. 👀

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder imagine me saying it with a nytt paa nytt jon almaas attitude, and that's how I meant it :p

re: meta pol 

@namtari @jeder Fun fact: Knut Nærum is active in Rødt :blobcatuwu:

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder how, his t-shirt collection could pay for a whole kindergarten :joylmfao:

re: meta pol 

@namtari @jeder I too, aspire to have a topical T-shirt for everything

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder this is the real cost behind our time's moonlanding on mongstad really went: topical t-shirts

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @namtari i kinda cringe when seeing that there are marxist-leninists in there, i guess even though i didn't live in PRP i still get the shivers

re: meta pol 

@jeder @katnjiapus hey the PRL gave us unitra, cannot be that bad right

re: meta pol 

@namtari @katnjiapus some of the stuff they made back then is nice

re: meta pol 

@jeder @namtari They're not of the tankie sort, tho. Rødt is a coalition of made lots of older socialist parties and organisations. So the M-L label is more of a historical tidbit.

The Norwegian Communist party (NKP) tho... They can get fucked. 🖕

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder that doesn't mean that there aren't people that enjoy tankie rhetoric there, because there are, but they are quite tame despite its history

re: meta pol 

@namtari @jeder Maybe, but I also was active in the party for over 5 years. And it was hard to find Soviet-stans.

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder true, easier to find actual nazis in frp :p

re: meta pol 

@namtari @jeder The collective party motto of Norway: "At least we're not FrP"

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @jeder but where does that put "Demokratene" and "De Kristne"

re: meta pol 

@katnjiapus @namtari I love how communist party of Poland(KPP) still exists but its basically full of PZPR boomers rejecting the fall of communism

re: meta pol 

@jeder @katnjiapus I don't really get what they miss; smaller portions of calypso?
