Just a quick public notice: I don't really use Google+ anymore.

I haven't moved anywhere else or anything (although I considered switching to Minds for a brief moment). Nor am I planning on shutting this profile down.

I just don't really use social media for personal stuff anymore.

I use Facebook for work, and Slack/Discord for direct and group communication. I also use a couple of context-specific social apps for particular interests, like Blizzard, MyFitnessPal and YouTube.

I just no longer feel the need for a general-purpose social media sharing or engagement platform for my non-work-related interests.

Perhaps that'll change someday. And on that day, I'll be sure to check back here before looking for anything else. But as far as I can see right now, I just don't feel the need to be active here.

So long, Google+, and thanks for all the fish.

Crew-members are instructed to use our Slack Workspace for Dauntless-related discourse from now on.

I did a thing yesterday.

It's time to root and rom my old Galaxy S4. But I haven't done this since Cyanogenmod was a thing.

Anyone got any pro tips I need to know about? Is Lineage still the defacto choice, or is there something new I should be aware of?

I've witnessed this exact thing, more specifically aimed towards non-parents, but it's definitely worse towards non-married people in general, and worst towards single people.
Wow... here is an example of real discrimination in the work place.... e.g. REAL PAY GAP... REAL ADVERSE TREATMENT.... how come we never hear about this? Why aren't the "HR and Equity" departments launching initiatives to restructure and re-educate the workforce about this?
