Brad says, “Why doesn’t anybody want me? I am a good boy! ”

Sweet Brad is waiting at the Waterbury Dog Pound for an angel to save him.

He loves treats and belly rubs and is nonreactive to dogs when he passes them in the kennel. JUST LOOK AT THAT GREAT SMILE!

Yes, someone decided that Brad didn’t need ears, but don’t let that stop you from adopting him! It adds character to his beautiful face!

Do you have room in your heart and your home for this dapper boy?

To all bullies. What kind of sick pleasure do you gain from torturing already tortured people? And how on earth do you enjoy destroying people’s lives? No excuses like “I was young” are going to justify your acts. You know to whom  I’m referring to. So do your victims the favour to keep your mouth shut and your hands tied up (or even be castrated, and I don’t care how this sounds like) from now on. Or go to hell before your victims, because this is the only way to understand what you’ve made their life feel like. Thank you.

I know everyone says that #Pitbull stuff is a total myth But this Fucker right here will bite your ass. I didn’t try to make him mean he’s just very Emo and Distrusting of everyone (except Sunny & my mom) He’s way more mellow in Texas then he was in Long Beach. He’s still a dick head though. He even growls at me when I get mad at him for knocking over the shop trash Every Single Night. He is a dog and Dogs should be treated with respect. That’s my Mr T. Story for the day…#jessejames #PitbullIsNotACrime #Bully (at Hamilton Pool Preserve)

Did you hear who she’s dating? She looks so fat today…. That hair colour is horrible. She literally has zero boobs. Could she suck up to the teacher any more?

Why as girls are we often so quick to pass judgement on one another?

This week on DTV we’re talking about Mean Girls. From leaving out a girl at the lunch table to gossiping about a so-called friend, female bullying happens far too often.

Why do you think girls fail to have each other’s backs? How can we stick together and build one another up rather than tearing each other down?

For anyone asking why, Randy Brown sums it up best:

“Once you hate the bullies and no ones does anything to defend you, you hate the people in the class that don’t say anything, you hate the teacher that doesn’t say anything, you hate the counselors that allow it to happen. They, in essence, end up hating the school. Not just the bullies, they hate the school, and they want to kill the school.”

What kind of world do we live in that someone would mock another person for suffering through suicidal thoughts and mental illnesses? Don’t you understand that one word, kind or mean, can change not only that persons life, but also everyone around them? The choice is up to you. I can’t understand why people want to hurt other people when you can help them. Kindness matters. Be the change, make a difference.

Saw discussion about “No tags” being the equivalent of an ersatz private post on Tumblr. Here’s what I know: “No tags” equaling “don’t reblog” is a convention that grew in response to Tumblr tag trolls.

There are Tumblr griefers who search on tags like “personal”, “selfie”, “please don’t reblog”, and so on, dedicated to reblogging selfies and other personal content with bullying tags. I first heard of the “no tags means don’t reblog” convention around 2012, in posts about evading Tumblr tag griefers.

But since Tumblr tags have two functions (to organize content within a blog, as well as serving as search keywords for Tumblr at large), Tumblr users who wish to avoid reblogs, but still want to organize their blog for themselves, are in a bind. I know of three methods to get around it: 1. Using nonsensical tags which make sense only to the blogger. 2. Adding unusual prefixes or suffixes to the tags. 3. Starting with five filler tags (Tumblr only indexes the first five tags) followed by the “real” tags.

Ultimately, “no tags” is a response to Tumblr’s lack of privacy tools. If people could make posts that could not be reblogged, or could make follower-locked/non-rebloggable posts, then the “no tags” workaround would be unnecessary. In the absence of genuine functionality, Tumblr users have resorted to “word-of-blog” customs. For instance, some artists post works-in-progress with the tag “wip” for “work in progress” and then get angry if it is reblogged because people “should know” it’s wrong to reblog works in progress.

Since Tumblr’s privacy options are shitty, my response to any “you should not have commented on or reblogged my post for X reason” is to delete my reblog immediately UNLESS the original poster wrote something seriously harmful (racist, sexist, transphobic, etc.) and there is ass-covering going on.

Example: I posted a photo of Benedict Cumberbatch in “12 Years A Slave” and put a blurb under it that said something like “Looking forward to Steve McQueen and Benedict Cumberbatch blowing the ‘good master’ myth out of the water.” Someone reblogged it, removed my comment, and substituted something like, “Look at Benny being nice to his slaves, he’s so handsome.” That seriously happened. I was mad as hell, reblogged their altered reblog, put my original comment back, and ranted. Later the reblogger asked me to delete my reblog of their bullshit. I did not delete it.

However, when the post topic is fandom meta or something equally non-urgent (James McAvoy’s shaved head: hot or not?), then I follow the “don’t reblog” request regardless of the reasons given (or not given, as the case may be; it isn’t really my business why someone does not want something reblogged).

A warning about Tumblr and search engines: choosing the “do not make my Tumblr blog searchable” doesn’t actually work. While the original post will not get indexed by Google, every reblog of the post will be indexed and will turn up in search results if the rebloggers do not also have “don’t make my Tumblr searchable” selected, and many of course will not, since “yes make my blog searchable” is the default. Whether there are tags or not does not matter; the search engines index the post’s content. Since Tumblr can’t make ad money on private and non-indexed content, and making money is the reason for Tumblr’s existence, Tumblr will continue to provide shitty privacy options. It’s this last fact that I think is the most important, and why I comply with “do not reblog” requests.

Summary: Light’s 6th year at Hogwarts was supposed to be his best. Then L appeared, his new DADA teacher on a search for a notebook that may or may not be in Light’s possession. Thus begins a year of miserable class periods, insomniac Aurors, pain-in-the-ass girlfriends, a mysterious horcrux, handcuffs, dementors, and a pair of weird looking second years who won’t stop following Light around. And who is this “Kira” everyone keeps talking about?

Chapter 4: Oops, I Did it Again 

Light imparts his knowledge of Transfiguration upon the future generation of Hogwarts students (Ft. Near, Mello, Matt, and Linda).

I updated my Hogwarts!AU again, and you should read it.
