Wow. Someone tried to disclose a vuln to the creators of TERF app Giggle, and they not only acted like shrieking techbros, but also accused the person who found the vuln of being a man (even though she's a cis woman)

Wife is trying repeatedly to book a test on the gov website. Every time she has to answer a slew of questions (same every time) because it says that there are tests now available. Every time we get through to the bookings page there are no slots for tests.

I head up operations in a small Manchester digital agency, write python code and listen to noisy music
