Questions for scholars who study hate speech or hate communities:
How do you interact with and sample/archive this material safely from a tech perspective?
Also, how do you deal with the emotional distress from lurking these communities, reading their speech, interacting with them, &c?
AusPost won’t investigate this until June 3rd, which means Apple won’t either, despite saying “2-4 business days” (which was 2 weeks ago already)
I guess don’t bother with AppleCare, utterly useless. Will do absolutely nothing to help even though they are the ones who sent the replacement using AusPost not me. What am I even paying for?
Today is IDAHOBIT (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexphobia and Transphobia). A reminder that the LGBTQIA+ community still faces discrimination to varying degrees all over the world. Unfortunately the Australian IDAHOBIT website is down currently, but is still accessible via the Internet Archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20220419043914/https://www.idahobit.org.au/. Check it out for more information. #idahobit #lgbtqia

Insert a long rambling rant about Apple choosing Parcel Post (not Express) to ship an Express Replacement device, auspost not scanning it for a week and refusing to do anything until June 6th.
I… don’t like the lack of control I have in this situation and that I can’t even throw money at it to resolve (because I can’t mentally close this until the device either shows up or apple consider it lost)
