    I think some Libertarian and Green representation in Congress could help things.

    The problem is they so rarely run candidates at lower levels. In my mind anyone looking to start a functioning third party really needs to build from the ground up. You need to run candidates at city level, and then state level before you start even thinking about the federal level.

    They mention having secured assurances from the banks that they would still be able to process transactions. I'd be curious to know what those involved considering this situation was apparently similar to the Pornhub problem and they are still unable to find a solution.

    As one of those mods, that's not a fair take.

    maybe the OnlyFans spam on queer NSFW subreddits will finally be curbed.

    I definitely agree that the spam was annoying, but to me that's more on the owner/mods of the subreddits than anything else.

    Even as someone not at all involved in SW, I think it's important for them to have a location where they have more control over their content and payment which OF seemed to be providing, even if it wasn't perfect.

    Spotify pays on average $0.004 per stream, Apple pays $0.007, and Amazon pays $0.00402

    I am not arguing we shouldn't have video streaming like music streaming. I'm just saying that is probably part of the reason the companies that own the media is hesitant in just releasing it everywhere.

    Man this is so stupid.

    They're not shorts shorts, they're just spandex shorts. You see the same thing in Track and Field where there are some runners who will wear the bottoms that are closer to the bikini cut, and others will wear the spandex shorts.

    There's really 0 difference and it's all about what people are most comfortable with. Seems like a stupid law, glad the Norway Federation is standing with their players and covering the fine.

    Man this is absolutely insane.

    If something isn't done (and honestly I have no idea what can even be done) this is going to get so much worse. State to State inequality is going to get so much worse as people see policies like this being enacted and decide not to move there (or moving out after they pass.)

    I don't give a fuck that she smoked weed and I think it's incredibly stupid that this means she'll probably miss the Olympics BUT (and this is a big but) I believe one of the reasons they still enforce it so much is that THC can be used as a masking agent for other PEDs. I'm not saying that's the case, but I do think it's one of the reasons WADA haven't totally tossed it from their list yet.

    Ohhh, whereaboutsish in Maine?

    I grew up in the midcoast area. Any time I go home to visit in the summer I sort of hate it because it's hot but no one has AC and I can't spend all day in the ocean, so it's actually worse than summer down south.

    I do miss the snow though...
