Anna versus Wayland 

I contacted ZSA and they suggested a couple of things I’ll try tomorrow, but this whole thing is puzzling me. 🙃

Anna versus Wayland 

I re-flashed my Moonlander via Wally and Chrome, even, and it didn’t help. Interestingly, my Lily58 Pro works flawlessly under Wayland—Auto Shift and all.

Another curious, although expected thing I noticed is that Auto Shift does work with apps under XWayland. It definitely looks like it’s a Wayland thing.

Anna versus Wayland 

A few weeks ago, my Moonlander Mark I stopped working as expected… under Wayland. I say so because under X and Windows 10, it works perfectly fine—on a Wayland session, however, Auto Shift will either be very inconsistent or straight up fail to actuate.

I switched computers (although both are running Fedora 36 Workstation), nada. I tried many iterations of different cables to no avail; Auto Shift was failing and I couldn’t figure out why.

We also got ourselves a cable tester to make sure we don’t find out one of them is faulty hours after putting so much effort into this whole operation.

Questions for scholars who study hate speech or hate communities:

How do you interact with and sample/archive this material safely from a tech perspective?

Also, how do you deal with the emotional distress from lurking these communities, reading their speech, interacting with them, &c?

Boosts appreciated.

pandemics won't be solved by relying on personal responsibility any more than climate change will. boycotting plastic straws and individually wearing a face covering isn't a replacement for systemic change. don't let those with power shift your anger away from them
