@GeoffWozniak Didn't know The Independent had become r/AItA.

And yes, 100% troll. "I'm doing something I know is offensive---because everyone I asked said it's offensive, which I already knew because otherwise I wouldn't have asked in the first place---but I don't care because they're all wrong."

@GeoffWozniak Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds? (I actually really like it; both iterations of the album, and the concert version.)

@GeoffWozniak Weird, can't see the image (I presume) in my client (Tusky) or at the original link on hackers.town. Apparently others who have replied can, and I had kinda guessed what it was supposed to be anyway, but it's still curious.

@GeoffWozniak Have you seen/tried mp3fs? Haven't figured out the incantations to get it to work over NFS yet, but it looks promising.

@GeoffWozniak id3tag is pretty much my go-to for command line, if I have to do mp3. (My recently-completed re-ripping project was to get everything in FLAC, and metaflac does almost everything I've asked of it.)

@GeoffWozniak Ha, my own screenshot got the same treatment!

@GeoffWozniak Apparently they're quite sensitive!

Well there you have it. From the horse’s mouth. Zuck explains why calling for a beheading on Facebook comes ‘close to the line’ but ‘does not cross the line’. Thought experiment, Facebook: maybe the line *is in the wrong place* 🤔
