Queen death, satire but not 

You shall not declare that the King is 'not your king' even though you did not choose him and have no decision either way in the matter. Failure to comply will lead to arrest. Yes, we are a democratic country, why do you ask? 🤔

I've finally got functional enough that I'm happy to talk about it.

Whitespashe Mastodon

This is a mastodon instance that allows users to share ideas and participate in discussions.

Whitespashe is named after the Admins' first joint coding project, which replaced spaces within a Word document with non-printable characters.
This would preserve readability, but would fool plagiarism detection sites such as Turnitin.
This site was named after this project, as it represents a desire to create whilst simultaneously sticking it to the Man (or in this case, the hellscape that is Twitter).

We have a hidden service frontend running at: http://whtspshcehqg4nj4wqyiopjcfxradop7ujflycxum7wkfivewqt36zyd.onion
