What is it with people threatening to sue people today? Whew.
I have been in and out of Twitter enough that I know 9,000 things are blowing up and also I understand about 2% of them, but some people in publishing appear to have made Choices. Whew.
Here is the other threatened lawsuit that has me scratching my head.
“We don’t like money or using our time well” just seems to be the driving motivation here.
Like, set aside the very dubious merits of the claims? What a gigantic waste of time and community attention.

Since apparently some people in publishing Twitter need this today, I have made a flowchart about whether you should sue someone for some form of defamation. Flowchart: Should I sue someone for defamation? If you answe
I add a corollary about “harm” for those who want to sue to vindicate their outraged feelings. Corollary: This didn’t cost me $100K in demonstrable harm,
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but dollar for dollar, you can get a lot more therapy than you can lawyering. Consider that instead.

I’m just mad about the people who insist you have to refrigerate soy sauce.
This is......really not true, oh my god. It’s a fermented product salted to an inch of its life.
The color and oxidation level may change if left out for long periods of time, which can impact the taste, but it won’t go bad, and if you use it regularly you’ll finish your soy sauce before this happens.

Okay so as a start, I don’t know who Rachel Hollis is and I don’t really care to find out because I don’t really care about white women who think they’re like Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai.

BUT.
The question: “What is it about ME that made YOU think I want to be relatable?”

uh that would be the fact that you’re making a whole ass video about some random comment on your livestream.
I mean, if you don’t care if you’re relatable? Then why would you even care if someone you literally don’t know thinks you’re privileged for having a housecleaner?

I keep seeing Big Names in Skating Journalism say things like “this Asian music is unintelligible to Westerners who don’t know Japanese folklore” and nonetheless I know a fuckton of Westerners who don’t know Japanese folklore who love Ten to Chi to and Seimei.
If cancel culture were really a thing, everyone who had said outright racist shit like this would be out.
In the middle of a wave of heartbreaking anti-Asian violence, far too many people feel far too secure about stating that Asian aesthetics are too alien for people to relate to.

Growing up in the 80s... I’m not even going to say what the discussion of HIV was like. What it felt like. How traumatizing it was to hear of people passing away while other people laughed.
I feel pretty emotional about this. Early phase trials aren’t results, but wow.

Hey, I’ve seen people talking about Yuzu’s appearance at Stars on Ice. I’m not trying to change anyone’s mind, but I have heard people say things that, on reflection, seem to me to be inaccurate.
1) He can easily get out of it.

We don’t actually know that. I wouldn’t feel confident saying that unless I saw his contract.
2) He has the resources to sue them to force them to release him.

Probably true, but have you really thought about what that would entail? Based on the Hamada/Oda lawsuit, lawsuits in Japan don’t take any shorter than they do here.
