    I want the fediverse to be a success, and I’ve long wanted a reddit alternative based on the fediverse, so I found this very exciting. I also think it’s chance for a new and better culture than what reddit has, and I wanted to be there early to do what I could to contribute value and help it succeed.

          I stopped watching TV about 10 years ago and it’s blissful. If 5 people or more recommend me a series I just download it and watch it. I can’t justify lapping up 20minutes of ads per 1hr of content - It’s sickening.

          Try 7 day stints without TV, each time you come back you will notice the adverts more that’s the conditioning being undone, eventually you just cant face going back - you are now cured.

            Its wild going over to someone’s house who has cable after you haven’t watched it for a while. Every year the commercials get longer and more unbearable. Same thing happened to radio, magazines, etc… these are ad mediums to sell to boomer audiences now.

              Oh, my mistake I read it as “…can’t live without TV” Do you feel sad for people glued to TV, even though its by choice? I do it’s kinda weird (I don’t hassle them about it)
