social.seattle.wa.us potential rule change, feedback requested Show more
Dear users of social.seattle.wa.us, myself and my fellow moderator, @pnathan, are considering adding a rule against misinformation about the ongoing pandemic. We are interested in your feedback.
should "Misinformation regarding covid is subject to removal, repeated offenses will lead to a ban". be put into policy?
Following similar rule changes on other servers, for example: https://freeradical.zone/@tek/103873063822414741
Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network (pls boost) Show more
To slow the spread of coronavirus (#COVID19), we need to learn more about it. That's where you come in. SCAN is testing both healthy and sick people to understand how the virus is spreading in King County. The findings will help our partners, including Public Health – #Seattle & King County, keep people informed and make the best possible, data-driven decisions to protect our community.

Quick, temporary #FreeRadical policy update:
Effective immediately, medical advice regarding #COVID19 not sourced from legitimate scientific or medical outlets is forbidden content. If you see someone advocating essential oils or colloidal silver or other junk quackery, please report it.
This is not a free speech zone. Misinformation that makes people dead is not “oh well we all have opinions”.
Other #admins, I beg that you please consider a similar policy.
> To make matters worse, Seattle is a city that's vastly overvalued, which means housing values could crash like never before. When the housing bubble burst in 2007, by 2009, a Seattle house worth $400,000 lost about 25 percent of its value ($100,000). These same houses are now worth about $800,000.
False. Not a bubble.
Estimate that average software engineer & above makes 150K per. 300K per couple. 900K is now conservative house buy.
I am not worried, per se. We have relevant supplies and a few more are ordered.
Later today I plan to take a walk on the beach - I live nearby. I'm getting a bit of a cabin fever.
How you doing, #Seattle ?
:: cough, cough :: hello from the Puget Sound, epicenter of the CORONA VIRUUUUS.
I have a stupid cough thing. Almost better. Mostly staying in the apartment so as not to cough in public and get Disapproving Looks from the locals.
The deaths continue. A lot of food places are slowing down, I hear. Tech companies have mostly asked employees to WFH.
c19 has many cases in major corps in the city by now.
we need prettier propaganda like this
Does anyone know of an offline map app like #OSMAnd+ for desktop GNU/Linux?
pg said some fairly intelligent things about writing.
I plan to do some writing this year.
Let me say this a different way: if you're shy and retiring, you don't contribute very well. As a senior engineer in an organization, I WANT you to contribute. You are valuable, but if you don't assert yourself, your value in relation to others is diminished.
I will generally coach others if they ask. I have asserted myself to press for assertiveness in others if I've thought it critical enough.
