Oh, and now I see he’s spouted some absolute bullshit about me in the thread. Activist meetings? Dude, when’s the last time I went to an activist meeting? We avoided Berlin just so we could stay away from the “bold and the beautiful” crap that goes on in that community.
Seriously, why do people think they can just talk crap about you without knowing you or having ever met you just because you may be somewhat known in a given field?
@zatnosk Ah, I misread (as did @ekaitz_zarraga) – still, that whole thread. WTF? I mean, ffs, how about spending time critiquing those who are actively working every day to fuck things up instead of those of us trying to make things better? This sort of crap makes me question why I put myself out there (hint: it’s not for the six-figure pay check, that’s for sure). Do people really think you do this for ego? You’d have to be a masochist.
@aral even though we've disagreed on birdsite, i gotta say that guy has a chip the size of denver on his shoulders concerning you.
otoh, my mom always said something to the effect of "fuck what people think, that's none of my business" there's a truth in that.
so let him rant & rave on his lonesome instead.
and listen to us who appreciate the work you guys do <3
@aral don't sweat it, i realize the negative peeps get to you, and after a while they're the loudest voices, but yeah. i aint one.
make sure to practice selfcare etc, and this summer, make sure to go far north in sweden and i'll get you some of the best coffee you've ever had ;)
