Saturday morning. Your new brain implants are now working. You hear the oil sizzling and start smelling the eggs, pancakes, and orange juice.
"Breakfast will be ready soon," the robocook says.
You don't remember hiring a robocook. WTF?
There's no food in the kitchen but the smell is still there. The cook is a hologram in front of you. "Order breakfast to go, by IHOP™?"

I will now be additionally blocking at an IP level instances run by known bad actors.
I blocked a subset of these yesterday and my bandwidth usage dropped by half.

TERFs, OCRbot request

OK they already said they have very few mail donations, and notice how the #Gab founder uses percentages, not dollars here to hide how small it is.
So they are running on fumes from VPN sales ad referrals, and the few bitcoin donations they can pull in.
