A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said, "um. We apologise for abducting your leader. We did not notice her coming aboard when we were here last week."
A cat emerged from the spaceship and sat down to clean her paws.
"Here she is," the alien said.

@vease I asked the facilities guy to turn down the zircon in our corner office.
People complained that it was too cold.
They're not complaining now. Our corner is a chilly oasis in the hot desert of our building.
I understand, but please bear in mind: I will always block instances that are antithetical to the rules of my instance.
They're not hard rules to follow, and its my belief that if you can't follow rules of basic human decency, I will not give you a platform.
This is both an idealistic and practical approach. Nazis, racists, homophobes and bigots get cut off before they have a chance to affect my instance, or those connected to it.
I blocked cyzed because:
I believe it promotes the #gab brand.
I don't want to interact with racists and bigots.
I don't want a platform that keeps the gab branding (whilst actively federating with the main gab instance) to be able to interact with me, or find other instances via mine.
Finally, I blocked it because that's my choice as this instance's admin.
I believe in free speech, I really do, but people have to remember: https://xkcd.com/1357/
Do we have an up-to-date list of domains/ip's to block?
