Reading about how "automatic content recognition" works in smart TVs, and honestly I don't understand why this isn't a bigger scandal. Your PC and smartphone don't take a screenshot every five minutes and send it to Dell or Apple. I don't get why TVs can get away with this.

insulting brains is ableist (abuse and death mentions, 222 words)
(related to https://plural.cafe/@fidgetcetera/104955242168609785 LB)
Foundational to ableism as it is practiced is the act of declaring some people to be pervasively inferior and incapable. This is used to dismiss what they say out of hand, strip them of dignity, respect, and accommodation, justify their murder as 'a drain on resources', and otherwise perpetuate evils upon their persons.
This act is often justified by pointing to medical differences - for example, a parent of an autistic child pointing to this developmental difference as proof that the child is incapable of understanding social norms and therefore proof that they are justified in forcing the child into distressing situations and ignoring their complaints.
To dismiss someone's complaints by attributing them to an underdeveloped or damaged brain is to first claim that such behavior cannot be reasonable, second claim that such behavior must come from an inferiority in the person making it, and third claim that the difference being painted as an inferiority /is/ an inferiority and makes the person with the difference unworthy of consideration and respect.
That's severely ableist. It's ableist to say someone is wrong because they are pervasively bad and it's ableist to say that medical difference makes one pervasively bad. It's not okay and it's not something people should do.

God work has fucking sucked today since the tech is sick and quarantining until test results are back and clear
Having to deal with pissy entitled patients is the absolute worst and why we don't have s fully online solution for scheduling shit is beyond ze.
Your all-powerful God is such a wimp he can’t even defend his intellectual property lol
fediblock for a big masto instance, extremely gross ableism, genitals referenced
ppl have had serious issues with the way dot social has been running for like, a fucking while, but quite frankly, seeing a staff member post that ppl are "babybrained" and have "dents in their brain", and then their response to being reported for ableism is to mock it because they're an admin? fucking gross and we're sick of this kinda shit being acceptable
while we're at it we'll note that this isn't super new for luigi, see also: his past forays into, uh, mocking the very existent disability spoons theory because it's "baby talk"
there are probably more examples.
mastodon.social also just outright does not have rules against ableism. like, at all. presumably no one running the garbage site saw the need for caring abt ableism

it's harder to relate to creative products when you don't get to see it done by amateurs
An airline's business plan:
1) Maintain an unsustainable business model
2) Don't prepare for crises
3) In a crisis, ask taxpayers for bailouts
4) Receive millions in bailouts
5) Lay off employees anyway
6) Fight against ecological measures and paying taxes
