    Draft felt solid, unfortunately the outcome was a mediocre 4-3

  • The Oatmeal on disinformation and the backfire effect

  • If you have less tech-savvy older relatives who are victims of the regime's disinformation machine:

    1. Acquire their YT/FB login/password (create an excuse, borrow their phone and reset the password or create a new account)

    2. Login to the YT/FB account on another device.

    3. Watch/like anti-fake news videos, mainstream media videos and block fake news pages/channels using their account. Repeat often.

    1. Occasionally bring up talking points to see if their views are changing.
  • This is the kind of thing I want to see. Not just one show, but as many as possible, oversaturating the internet even. With different flavors, approaches and target audiences. Let the algorithms work in favor of truth for a change.

    (All of this requires time, money, effort)

    Quoted RegineCabato's tweet:

    Yes, the attempt to dumb down the conversation re: NGO definition is a troll line.

    Proposal: A fun and snappy weekly YouTube show called TrollBusters compiling and debunking the scripts of the week, gathering screen caps and receipts, explaining the structures, fallacies, etc. https://twitter.com/imnotyomom/status/1525381997836632064

  • Did 2 sealed runs of the #MagicArena #MTGSNC Limited Open this weekend. Went bant both times, unfortunately, we did not make day 2. Runs ended at 5 and 6 wins respectively. So close!

    Second quick draft was much better than the first. Hopefully we have good pulls in the Arena Open as well!

  • It has been a difficult week, particularly for supporters of VP Leni Robredo, given the outcome of the election last Monday. It's taken me a few days to gather my thoughts, and even then, some of these ideas may still seem raw and unrefined. Some were also the outcome of numerous conversations with fellow supporters both before and after the elections. Disclaimer: I am of course, not an expert of any kind, and these are just my personal thoughts (some refined by many conversations in the immediate 48-96hrs after the election. So very many active group chats!) Hope and Disappointment

  • Tried an early morning off-stream #MTGSNC Quick Draft unsurprisingly with UW. Didn't get there though.

  • My Android didn't have the "delete advertising ID" option, but had an "Opt out of ads personalization" toggle.

  • So basically, politely correcting false info just makes things worse. If so, how are we supposed to fight disinformation?

    Quoted emollick's tweet:

    🤦 Let’s say you see someone make a mistake & post a false political story on this website. So you point it out to them, politely. What happens next?

    The partisan slant & toxicity of the person you corrected’s future tweets goes up & their quality drops! https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3411764.3445642

  • Around 14 months after I first broke through to Silver rank in #StreetFighterV I managed to hit Super Silver for the first time! At this rate, it'll be two years into SF6 before I hit Gold in SFV lol #gaming

  • Drafting Streets of New Capenna! ep5 https://www.twitch.tv/twitchyroy #mtg #magicarena #twitch #mtgsnc

    Just one draft again today, my first shot at the GW archetype. Wasn't super happy with the deck and had lots of grindy mirrors but at least I was able to get to 4 wins.

  • I rarely do #selfies, but here's a before and after. I promised to get my hair cut after the election. I've let it grow out for about a year, this was the longest it's ever been.
