If I am denying your follow requests, please consider the following before resending a follow request:

- You may not have enough or any info in your bio and that might be all that I see before I accept the follow request.
-Consider adding your age (or just above or below 18)
-give me some idea of who you are in terms of your interests. If I can't distinguish you from a newsposting bot I won't accept.

Do not just link to bio information elsewhere. That's neat, but I should know enough from your bio here to not need to depend on what may be a dead link or a site that blocks Tor connections. I don't want to have to be a detective!

The rest here rarely applies:
- Your bio says you are "above/beyond" gender and you are clearly a cishet dude just refusing to post your preferred pronouns because of some weird anxiety (seriously, stop even "any" is acceptable)
- You might be using national flags outside the context of indicating which languages you speak, which I see as a red flag.
- You use exclusionary slurs (not cuss words, I don't give a fuck) including anything homophobic or ableist
- You actively advocate for some kind of hierarchy (yuck)
- Multiple of the above apply, and idk why you sent me a follow request at all

(maybe) less clear reasons why I mute/block people 

I mute/block people who get too caught up in electoralist political theater and obsess over authoritarian policy wonk bullshit because its unhealthy for me to engage with and also drags me into that same distraction so if I mute/block/unfollow you and you were wondering why, that's probably the number one thing. That and joking about authoritarianism in a shitposty "I was just being sarcastic about my support of this regime or fetishization of their oppression" kinda way that used to just be purely an unhealthy 4chan thing for right-wingers, but now I see authcoms doing more often too. It has extremely toxic channer vibes that almost remind me of shit like bunkerchan making memes about Tienanmen Square, holodomor, gulags, etc. Also if you still think its okay to idolize Richard Stallman.

do not interact if: 

- Tanky ( Marxist-Leninist, Stalinist, Maoist, or otherwise apologetic of cult of personality figures: Juche(ist?), Assadist, etc)
- Patriotic or Nationalistic for any concept of a nation or in-group, excluding others from your concept of right to inclusion, mutual cooperation, and well-being
- You think something like "SJW's have gone too far"
- You do not unconditionally accept and respect queer identities
- You casually use ableist slurs instead of using words that are actually descriptive
- You don't acknowledge that white people have no say in what to do with stolen land
- You exclude people for reasons beyond their actions or stated beliefs
- You think that being "apolitical" is ever a good thing
- You feel the need to ask why for any of these

no nazis is implied, but as if they'd listen, they think they're owed a platform everywhere they go.

Me who just spent over 2h improving a single street in my neighbourhood on #OpenStreetMap, painstakingly referencing every building across three different map sets and adding street numbers to each gate, door, garage etc. : "oh really?"

we talk about “imposter syndrome” a lot in our communities, but rarely does anyone explain that it’s actually a complex trauma reaction, like cPTSD

capitalism motivates employers to constantly play down our worth; and it winds up gaslighting us into thinking we don’t have value

For all those still working behind the keyboards at the institutions of great power, take a moment to appreciate that National Whistleblower Day and Sysadmin Day this year happen on the same day. Maybe it's a sign.
