after reviewing this idea, i will begrudgingly admit

there is ONE good use for nfts

and it is this

@wigglytuffitout I thought everything on a blockchain is there forever? And how will owning the receipt for a picture burn it?

@tastytea i don't actually give a shit about nfts lmao, i merely know enough to appreciate the joke

@Superfreq every so often when the OCR can handle it, i do try to remember to actually let it do so LOL

@wigglytuffitout well, you can't get anything off a blockchain . That's the only thing that makes it special compared to e.g. a distributed hash table.

@NickFreeman i cannot begin to express to you how little i care about the actual mechanics beyond laughing at this joke

@wigglytuffitout

I'm not sure I'm completely happy that nerds have constructed a fully anonymous, automated blackmail system.

@celesteh oh it's awful but in terms of universal karma, i feel like this is an expected evil consequence to follow the evil of inventing NFTs

@wigglytuffitout

On the balance, this kind of use won't benefit women. It will become another abuse vector of "revenge porn."*

* This is not a good name for the variety of abusive acts it designates, but all of them involve an image or a recording of some kind.

@celesteh oh yeah, it's not actually a good idea. this is the digital equivalent of trying to actually do the acts of a grindhouse revenge porn flick in real life: a bad idea

but sometimes cathartic to daydream about lol
