Hey you amazing UK folks,

When Americans and or Jews talk about media bias in BBC reporting, this is what I mean.

The BBC reported 87% of Israeli-Counter attacks, while only reporting 1% (yes 1%) of attacks on Israel.

That might explain why the situation in Israel seems "one sided" to someone in the UK, because you literally are only getting one side.

choice quote from this article that pretty much sums up everything:

"If you had to make a rat depressed, how do you think you’d go about it? ... To test your new antidepressant, you need an efficient method of making a lot of rats exhibit anhedonia — that is, making them lose interest in things they used to enjoy, like sugar.

It turns out you don’t need to traumatize them. The most reliable protocol is “chronic mild stress.” There are many methods of making the lives of experimental animals mildly but chronically miserable ... But they’re all variations on the same theme: remove all predictability and control from the animal’s life. Then take notes as they gradually lose interest in being alive."

Heads up! #Microsoft is on track to ban all commercial activity by #FOSS projects on Microsoft Store in about a week! This is even worse than their (eventually repealed) 2011 ban on #copyleft for their app store! 😡️ We demand rollback of this new policy: sfconservancy.org/blog/2022/ju
