I should mention to anyone with a sense of adventure that I am searchable on Diaspora as

https://diasporafoundation.org/ uses ID's that look like email addresses (they aren't so don't use it as an email address). It's just for network identification purposes.

Just in case you haven't seen the other comments I added to other posts, I'm evaluating a replacement SN. I don't expect privacy (I think SN + privacy is a misnomer in some regards). What I don't want to do is participate in a SN that is owned and operated by a company that is a member of ALEC (or any other political manipulation tool).

+Daniel J. Stern, if I find a new home, I'll probably come back here to post a "so long and thanks for all the fish". Unlike the porpoises, I'll probably give gory details before I commit SN suicide here.

Doubleclicks.
I love the way they snark.

I'm not much of a believer in on-line petitions, so this link is just an FYI.

One more figure. There have been fewer than 20 terror-related deaths on American soil since 9/11 and about 364,000 deaths caused by privately owned firearms. If any European nation had such a record and persisted in addressing only the first figure, while ignoring the second, you can bet your last pound that the State Department would be warning against travel to that country and no American would set foot in it without body armour.

I think I  can be quite comfortably happy using Diaspora as my primary SN ( https://diasporafoundation.org/ ). There are caveats, but they are not enough of a detriment for me to make it unusable.

So, I'm going to post more, but I'd like some feedback.

1. Should I post one long post and risk tl/dr?
2.Or post a bunch of short subject posts?
3.Or just skip posting as no one is interested in my commercial SN disgust?

Anyone interested in a possible move to a new platform?

Since it looks like you are the only one interested +Cassandra Field , I
may just communicate it to you directly. Just to avoid cluttering the
streams of others.

I'd like everyone to consider not posting on G+ except for suggestions for alternatives to G+ or posts against ALEC ( http://action.sumofus.org/a/alec-facebook-google-yelp/6/2/?akid=2310.668035.qBjSqx&rd=1&sub=fwd&t=2  has anyone else see this anywhere?). It's finally enough for me to ignore their protestations about "do no evil" as ALEC is a corporate tool that is bent on creating a corporate feudal US.

Does anyone have suggestions for social networks to replace G+ till they drop out of ALEC (probably a permanent replacement)?

+Noel Field, I need to see some things before I get fully committed. One is the developer schedule of releases. I kind of view the article you provided as a good thing (turning the code loose to the community). It's open source, ruby on rails, with either MySQL or MariaDB.

I also liked the idea that I could set up a pod here at home. I think that opens up some possibilities for a limited access server, maybe just family. All I'd need to do is change my home Internet connection to have a static IP (cheap in the scheme of things) and I should be good to go (more or less).

_And what would a science magazine be without a little research to back up their reasoning for the decision. LaBarre cites a University of Wisconsin, Madison study that, among other things, found that: "Uncivil comments not only polarized readers, but they often changed a participant's interpretation of the news story itself."

Study authors Dominique Brossard and Dietram A. Scheufele about their research in a New York Times op-ed:
"Simply including an ad hominem attack in a reader comment was enough to make study participants think the downside of the reported technology was greater than they'd previously thought.""

And as you noted, +Bill Pusztai, they think that's a free speech issue when they already have mufti-billion dollar lecterns.

Are Canadians as mad as we are in the US?

Several weeks ago, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper reportedly sent you a letter declaring his willingness to take any climate actions necessary to get a presidential approval of Keystone XL, the $7-billion pipeline that would pump Alberta tar sands to Gulf Coast refineries. While this may seem like a generous offer, Canada simply cannot mitigate the carbon pollution from the pipeline; those emissions would simply be too big. Keystone XL would be directly responsible for the equivalent annual emissions of 51 coal-fired power plants or 37.7 million cars. As a point of comparison, Canada has about 26 million cars on the road.

NAFTA made the border completely porous to corporate money. That's what it was for, regardless of whatever else they told us.

This is a family operation that caters to a wide variety of clients. They consistently produce high quality maple syrup. I personally have been buying bulk maple syrup from them for a number of years. I take clean gallon jugs and they fill them, weigh them, and charge me for what that year's market price is doing. In most recent years that has been a little under $50 a gallon (a 1 gallon milk jug will weigh about 11 pounds filled and syrup has been a little over $4 a pound). They also have a pancake breakfast once each spring, I've never attended. Contact them for details. The only thing missing is a spring email to let me know when the maple sugar is running!
