pinboard

Heads-up: Beginning January 1, 2015, newly created pinboard accounts will come with an annual fee. Pinboard accounts created before that date will NOT cost an annual fee, just the one-time sign-up fee (roughly $ 10.55 right now.) The change isn’t going to affect users with an existing account.

If you were planning to get a pinboard account at any future point, now would probably be the time to do that.

Hey fandom!

Beginning on January 1st, 2015, Pinboard will begin charging an $11 annual fee for all new accounts. If you’ve been holding off on buying a Pinboard account, now is a great time to do so; provided you sign up before January 1st, you’ll only be charged a one-time fee of $10.55. 

Pinboard is by far my favorite site for bookmarking fic; the developer is extremely responsive to fandom’s needs and even gave this awesome talk on fans and social bookmarking. There’s a fandom-only popular page, too.

More details on the change here! (And if you already have a Pinboard account, don’t worry—you won’t have to pay the annual fee, although anyone who signed up before 2015 but wants to support the service will be able to opt-in to the new pricing scheme.)

"According to the Associated Press, police officers who searched McQuilliams’ van found a copy of “Vigilantes of Christendom,” a book connected with the Phineas Priesthood, an American white supremacist movement that claims Christian inspiration and opposes interracial intercourse, racial integration, homosexuality, and abortion. Phineas priests take their name from the biblical figure Phinehas in the book of Numbers, who is described as brutally murdering an Israelite man for having sex with a foreign woman, who he also kills."
