To be fair, I am not in favor of forcing people to give their exact location on a website (although mine is completely static and doesn't save your info in any way) so I would really like it if someone can make a better tool to find your and someone else's local tag.

Also, I would love it if you build this in apps.

@musicmatze gitea is nice. I have my own instance at -- no public registrations but if you want I can make you an account. I think they do... which is even more horrible. There is a part of society that is both "christian" and harmfully darwinist...

@radicalrobit and when the rich are touched, they suddenly can influence it...
