Oh webmentions! In theory, they’re great, providing a way to collect and send pings to and from your website. In practice, they can be a pain, requiring all sorts of workarounds, especially if you’re running a static site. Couple that with some (in my opinion) unclear documentation, and inconsis...
This is why I love webmentions.

In reply to
@atomicpoet @fediversenews I think we should adopt something that identifies those on Mastodon as part of the fediverse as a whole, not necessarily something specific to Mastodon itself.
@DavidGoldfield I think this is a cool platform! I just wish that it was easier for casual users of computers to sign up. Right now you’re overwhelmed with choice with all the instances etc, which I think is confusing a lot of people.
@remixman @DavidGoldfield I don't see how signing up for Mastodon is any different or difficult than signing up for email.
@email@example.com Hi, Bruce, and may your day be a good one!
@frog67 @bruce_toews Yes Bruce, have an excellent day!
The post, which turned into an official campaign statement, seemed to be in response to criticism over his recent dinner with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes.
I will freely admit that I am thoroughly and completely lacking when it comes to loyalty to your sorry anti-semitic ass. And I am also thoroughly and completely unashamed of that.

Yeah, but they still lost.
I kinda hate activitypub things that give a link and nothing else. @firstname.lastname@example.org is a good example of this. When i see a post from that account its just a bare link. No clickable link card, no idea what its about, etc. I think its likely wordpress or something doing it but i skip all those posts and only pay attention to the @email@example.com account.
From the “I Should RTFM More Carefully” Dept.:
I screwed up the redirects on my end, so I effectively had them in twice, which, well, caused everything to loop back on itself.
I may change the identifier, but after this point, I have complete control over how things look and what gets published, (favorites, replies and boosts show up correctly while I can still publish my reads and other non-fediverse stuff without it going to the fediverse as just a link).
Thanks for letting me know about the problem, because I then had to sit down and figure out what was going on and I caught the mistake.
Like most modern geeks on the internet that just saw Twitter go up in a big flame when Elon purchased it most of us out here are trying to go back to owning our own content again. We got burned by throwing all of our content of Facebook and Twitter and want to go back to having stuff on a website we...
Wow this looks really nice! I’m using the older plugins, but my husband likes using Gutenberg, so I’ll let him know about this and see if he wants to switch.
Ah yes. Noah Rothman and the Baseball Man: Champions of people with disabilities since (checks notes) the last five minutes.
If people are uncomfortable watching Fetterman publicly adapt to his recently acquired disability and using assistive technology to live his life, fuck them and fuck their discomfort. This shit would be perfectly normal if society as a whole hadn’t spent the last longest doing its level best to make sure people with disabilities stay out of the public eye unless they’re serving as the occasional slice of inspiration porn by making sure the ADA remains mostly unenforced and generally just making the surrounding environment as inaccessible as possible either through unawareness or just plain stupidity. Mostly stupidity. And spoiler alert: people with disabilities navigate society and life despite these people, not because of them. Should Fetterman be elected, he’ll be able to do his job just fine, and probably better than most of the little shits in Congress, provided he gets the accommodations he needs which he is entitled to by the ADA everyone is still doing their best to make sure is unenforced. Everyone who’s uncomfortable watching Fetterman might want to sit the fuck down and ask themselves why that is. Because it sure as hell isn’t Fetterman’s fault. He’s not the problem. The people who are uncomfortable are.
You seem to be under the impression that the occasional bribe in the form of favors to a particular state is an acceptable exchange for anti-semitic outbursts from Republican politicians. Here, let me help you with that. It’s not and it never will be.
Florida's abortion ban prohibits the procedure after 15 weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest.
Republicans batting one hell of a thousand here I see.
After Missouri banned abortions, she was left 'with a baby dying inside.' Doctors said they could do nothing.
When her water broke early, doctors told Mylissa Farmer that her health was at risk. She had to travel to an abortion clinic in Illinois for care.
Take a bow Republicans, you own this.
Fine-tune your talking points to the nth degree if you want Republicans, but they’re still not going to cut it. Not even close.
I’m not sure why you’re amazed. Fox News and its fans have demonstrated time and time and time again that there is indeed an acceptable kind of antisemitism, and it’s the antisemitism that comes from their allies and/or the people and organizations they support. Why should this time be any different?
Providers say the cancer patients had to pause their chemotherapy after being denied abortions because they were pregnant.
I see the pro-life agenda is continuing apace! Good job guys!
Funny how this shit keeps happening, but, you know, Israel or something.
Which makes them amazingly like the religious freedom crowd!
Oh I promise you I’m not. Just like I don’t take it lightly when they pal around with actual fucking nazis.
Republicans: "We’re banning coding books now" (because code is apparently woke or something).
Also Republicans: Why isn’t everyone leaving Facebook and Twitter and joining our recursively failing shitty alternatives?
I don’t know guys, maybe it’s because you’ve always failed at technology, you continue to fail at technology, and you will continue to fail at technology for the foreseeable future.
