No difference. The company rebranded a bit earlier this year (maybe last year?) and consolidated all of their services, including Protonmail, under their new brand, now just "Proton." Part of that shift included changing their domain to and abandoning

I don't think you can create new addresses anymore. I think all new accounts are registered as addresses, and any accounts you see now were around before the rebrand.

The services are the same, just a different name.

Literally choked on my spit reading this hilariousness. 44 days, $115k annually for the rest of her public life? Killer grift.

Regarding other texts you might be interested in, I've found some solace in reading about gender nihilism. It gets at the root of a lot of my thoughts and understandings and experiences of queerness, and it's been pretty helpful for me lately. Sounds like you might get something out of it based on your post.

Little Black Cart has a solid reader, "What is Gender Nihilism" that serves as a good sampler

I have a number of thoughts about the original article, and the response linked here hits on a couple of them.

The biggest thing that struck me in the original was called out in this response: why did Nerd Teacher keep it all so vague? It's clear they had specific examples and orgs/projects/people in mind. Why not say what they're refering to and apply the criticisms to actual projects instead of vague allusions? It seems pretty clear to me who and what they're reffereing to most of the time, but only because I'm steeped in anarchist/rad media shit. Without that, I'd be pretty lost in this essay, and even still I'm left to guess and infer a lot of shit. Like, lets be real-- they clearly seem to be refering to: AK press PM press Fifth Estate (maybe?) Alexander Reid Ross Shane Burley Kim Kelly (I think?) Robert Evans Behind the Bastards/all of the spinoff shows like It Could Happen Here and Cool People Who Did Cool Stuff or whatever/all the bullshit on that network

Why not say this and call out specific people and projects and then level their criticisms at specific examples?

And maybe it fell outside the scope of their essay, but what about the rad media projects that very much don't succumb to these pitfalls? Submedia and the Earth First! Journal (tho a little defunct lately, it seems?) come to mind pretty immediately as overtly anarchistic projects that do a lot of the shit Nerd Teacher says/implies anarchist media should do but aren't. Same with It's Going Down for the most part. Unicorn Riot comes to mind as another example to counter some of their points, too, but I'm not sure if its fair or accurate to call them anarchist media.

I dunno. I wish they were more specific and addressed some of the projects that do the shit they say others don't.

I've had good luck with cardboard and binder clips. Just find a slab of cardboard thats big enough to fold in half and still cover the stencil. Alternately, depending on the size of the stencil, you could find two seperate, large pieces of cardboard or posterboard. Then binder clip around the edges to keep it closed and hold the stencil in place. Be sure the stencil is dry before sandwiching it between cardboard, but otherwise it's pretty simple and has worked well for me.
