I wouldn't accuse someone of engaging in those practices if they didn't engage in those practices.

That is exactly what you did in the linked post.

Everyone has blind spots, some that we'll eventually overcome, and some that will always be with us.

You weren't addressing blind spots, you were saying that people who aren't in your camp overtly do liberal things to sidestep being called out for sectarianism.

I don't work against everyone else.

Surely you can understand where I'm coming from when you say shit like "Nah, fuck society still." and have made kinda gritty remarks elsewhere where you seem to relish the disagreements. Maybe you're just shitposting but after a while it starts to wear a little thin.

If we're not able to be self critical, what's even the point of calling ourselves anarchists?

I just think you've gone beyond the point of good faith criticism.

Left unity is a meme because anarchy was never meant to be part of 'the left'.

Left unity is a "meme" when people actively reject cooperation with people not in their specific camp when the reality is that the kind of world we're trying to create (one without capital and oppressive systems) is still mostly hypothetical and may have crises and conditions we can't foresee. Still try to get as close to your goal as possible but don't reject it all if you don't get everything on your wish list. The world isn't yours, you're going to be sharing it with the rest of us, too.

It sounds like you're totaling data per user per day per week and generating a report for that?

As far as inserting data into your display table, it should only be running a query that sums up the information when you need to display it. No database table necessary for that. You could save it into a report if you really wanted to. That would need a new structure.

I am recently single because of my not being a liberal and thus having a "negative" view of everything.

That said, being on the market again after almost 7 years feels really weird.

As someone who isn't autistic, sometimes telling interest is legit difficult. Different people have different ways of expressing it, and acting on something that would be one person's signal of interest with someone else can make for some pretty cringey awkwardness. You also have people who are very plainly interested but deny it or refuse to act on it, probably because of fears based on past history.

Front-end JS is not accessible because it requires that the client both has it enabled and runs it properly. There are many reasons why this would not be the case.

You're not going to really improve anyone else's politics when you seem to intentionally misattribute liberal practices to anyone that doesn't adhere to your specific tenets regardless of whether or not they actually partake in those practices. Instead you're just going to look like a stereotype and people are going to close themselves off to you in particular because you are coming across as arguing from bad faith.

If "left unity is a meme" truly then it's not because of failures of tendencies to align, but because some very vocal and rhetorically powerful actors actively want to work against everyone else.

Charlie Brown then goes on to create a hit list for liberal governments, establishing himself as a fiction author whose work hinges on an uncritical acceptance of liberal propaganda, while somehow managing to not be regarded as counter-revolutionary.

I think anyone who takes figures and actions out of the Black Book of Communism at face value isn't any stripe of honest leftist, and throwing the baby out with the bathwater isn't useful. They've all done bad shit, but it doesn't invalidate everything they've done. It's just demonstrates that having a central figure lead the revolution is a bad idea.
