Hey folks, as I've struck out into the fediverse, it strikes me that I haven't redone #introductions
So, I'm Paul. The Cookie Brigade calls me Mom. I'm a java dev for my day job. In my spare time, I stream in the mornings at https://www.twitch.tv/cookiemom , I work on board game ideas, and I chase down whatever interests me at the time. Currently I'm trying to make a mead that resembles a chocolate chip cookie. We'll see how that goes.
blizzard, hell site, pol
Saw a Senator call out Blizzard for their treatment of a player who won money in their tourney that showed support for Hong Kong.
To clarify, the tourney that took place in Taiwan, had an interview where the player voiced support for the Hong Kong protests. Blizzard then stripped the player of his winnings and banned him for a year, AND banned the casters who aired the statement.
asking for help ($)
I could use some help this month. I've got interviews lined up, but in the best case they won't pay out until the end of the month, and in the meantime, I need to be able to eat.
If you can help out, by contributing or boosting, I'd really appreciate it.
Thank you for pitching in and spreading the word!

The head of Nicalis is such a complete asshole. https://kotaku.com/inside-the-ghosting-racism-and-exploitation-at-game-p-1838068522
@LogicalDash Since you apparently have trouble understanding boundaries, let me help you. Sending people threats in DMs is extremely bad. Stop doing it.
