Maintenance Phase podcast is one Casey listens to all about food myths, like what "overweight" and "obese" really are, or all the shady shit with "got milk" and the food pyramid.

I actually hadn't heard about the big people living longer studies. I have to think it makes some kind of sense, at least on the concept of storing energy and having more reserves if injured or sick - more to draw from when you can't intake as much. I'll have to see what the studies actually say about it.

I definitely felt pretty. It was super nice. I got more attention than the person I was with! :D

You should be allowed to look however you want. Also, you're not fat, you're "healthy". Legit, more studies are showing bigger people live longer. As always, I encourage you to be you. You deserve it.

Diversity Richmond is a pretty badass group, I have to say. They're an LGBTQ+ organization that puts on these small local events that are very queer-positive with a lot of warm, welcoming people. I am rather glad that a friend pointed me to them and drags me to some of their events and locations because they definitely are helping me feel better about myself.

Went out to one tonight and even got a couple complements on the dress and face paint, which made me feel good and happy. Kind of nice not to be made fun of for what I wear or how fat I am.

Wordpress forums blow. It lacks so many basic features.

I do rather like what they're going for there, though if I was going to do CMS+Forum, I'd get the Wordpress plugin that provides forum functionality; it seems to me like Wordpress just has more extensibility in that particular combination. However, I like keeping the forum a separate thing from the site as any scripted site (like every CMS) seems to have massive performance losses even with caching when compared to bare HTML/CSS/JS code.

It would be nice if I was a more competent programmer of websites, but that's more from disuse than anything else. I guess this stuff will let me get back in the swing of it - and I did write a personal microblogging script in Perl just now that also writes out to an RSS file, so it's not like I've lost all of it.

That's exactly it. And context is something you can't truly train an AI to understand, at least, not yet. Might it be possible in the future? Sure. But not right now - not enough to trust it for content moderation for sure.

I use SMF because I'm familiar, though I have used PHPBB and vBulletin as well. Never dealt with Joomla, fo be fair.

AI is far from perfect. It will never be able to moderate without understanding context.

I've used pretty much every forum software. PHPbb, vBulletin, and Joomla are my top 3. SM is #4.
