June 8 2020 Daily Proof of Life Post

7:00 am EEST (GMT+3). This is the June 8 2020 daily proof of life post. Yesterday I took down a post. It was getting the wrong sort of attention. Because it was Sunday, I was trying to relax and take a break from the non-stop turned-up-to-11 racist bullshit. I was working on my phone and couldn’t be arsed to get up and go to my laptop. Making any greater back-end changes to WordPress on the mobile app is a pain in the ass, so I just put the post into draft mode. At some point today I’ll disable comments, scrub remarks that had already been left (good, bad, and indifferent), and possibly add an update.

Yeah, I know, the technical issues shouldn’t be the main point here.

Someone noted that I’m swearing online now. For years I made it a point to keep my language in check, here on the blog and on social media. Look at the world right now, though. If a bit of impassioned cussing has you clutching your pearls and pulling out the fainting couch, I question your priorities. The things that spew forth from the sticky, puckered mouth of that tiny-fingered vulgarian do far more damage. That and, you know, innocent people getting assaulted and murdered. Profanity is the least of our worries.
