What happens when two people with hyphenated last names get married? Do they hyphenate all four names and in what order?
  • I believe this is a thing in Quebec.

    from https://culturalatlas.sbs.com.au/canadian-culture/canadian-culture-naming


    In Quebec, the Civil Code requires parents to assign their child only one surname (either a single or compound surname) derived from their respective surnames. Compound surnames may not have more than two parts, with or without hyphens. Thus, a couple named Joseph BOUCHARD-TREMBLAY and Marie DION-ROY could give their children the surnames:

    • BOUCHARD
    • TREMBLAY
    • DION
    • ROY
    • BOUCHARD-TREMBLAY
    • DION-ROY
    • BOUCHARD-DION
    • BOUCHARD-ROY, and so on.

    In Quebec, the law provides that spouses retain their respective birth names when they are married.

  • Murder victim Kelly Wilkinson repeatedly visited police in fear. They said she was ‘cop shopping’
  • Write to your police minister. They know that only a small percentage of people who care actually take the time and effort to write in, so if you do so, it has more of an impact than you may think.

    It also forces them to reply, so the squeaky wheel and all that.

  • Post removal on [email protected]

    I thought I'd give a quick update on the efforts to combat the spam wave.

    Clearly someone wants to make Lemmy a less appealing place to be. It's a deliberate attempt to spoil the good thing that we have going here. l'll leave it up to you to contemplate the motives and timing of this attack on the fediverse.

    So what are the Mods doing, and what can you do to help?

    The most obvious one is that we are deleting the spam as soon as it is seen. We are checking more often, but as volunteers we can't be on Lemmy 24/7. We also have some automated checking going on. This is working fairly well, but occasionally some legitimate posts are being removed. These get restored eventually, but sometimes it can take a while for this to be actioned. If this happens to you, please be patient.

    As users, we can help out by reporting spam posts and by posting quality content. Contributing to our community is the best way to make sure that it remains a safe, interesting and thought-provoking place.

    We've implemented some basic controls to hopefully catch CSAM material earlier. As with any such control, occasionally there might be false positives. Unfortunately that's the price we pay....
