    @Gromski Yeah it’s weird. I don’t like it and I don’t understand and I fear I just want to turn back the clock ten years.

    I no longer understand why people use the internet like they do #473 (From a big Facebook actors group.)

    @monzo 👍

    @monzo Ahh, right. Pause implied everything would stop! Especially when “Continue” is the other option, although it seems to do nothing.

    @monzo I mean, I don’t want to “pause” the setup process - I still want a card and account.

    @monzo I’m confused by this screen… I’m waiting for my card, so my only option is to click “Pause”. That gives me “Pause setup” (back to main app) or “Continue setup” (which leaves me on this screen). What do I do now?

    I mean, sure, many of us have burned another person alive at some point (usually in a game, I imagine) but it’s unusual to think about it the moment I open social media. Rather than after a few minutes of using it.

    Vaguely related: I’m pleased that when I open Facebook I no longer see an ad depicting a man killing another with a flamethrower. Thanks for that week, Call of Duty!

    The consoles I’ve owned/lived with: Sega, PlayStation, PlayStation, Xbox, PlayStation. I imagine I’d now be a different person if they’d all been Nintendo.
