Business as usual.

(Just wanted to say that. Regardless of whether it make sense in this context.)

I think it’s the same on Reddit, I guess. Reddit’s algorithms just avoids showing you the posts that don’t seem to be so popular (though, at least on the subreddits I was, I remember there were a lot of posts that didn’t have any comments or only had a bot comment. I actually think Lemmy might be even more active in the comments than on Reddit)

Yeah, they often change the street names with the countries.

You may want to look at the hardware that according to the FSF respects your freedom: https://ryf.fsf.org/

That’s not an instance. That’s a community/sublemmy.

Ok, turns out they are webp images. At least that’s what I get when I right click one of them an open the image.

I thought they were a video hoster.

lemmy.ml is definitely not for you, but you will most surely find another instance accepting you on https://join-lemmy.org/instances. If you don’t find anything that suits your needs you can also run your own instance.

In the past there were bots spreading ads for pills and stuff, but now most instances ask to tell a bit about yourself before registering and don’t federate with instances that don’t. That eliminated practically all of it as far as I’m aware. However sometimes there are accounts like these:

that go around spamming content that intentionally seems to aim to disturb users. Not sure if they are bots or humans, but they are banned relatively quickly.

Regarding the karma-farming bot accounts commonplace on Reddit, I think there’s no incentive for the creation of such bots, since most Lemmy instances do not have a total user point/karma count like on Reddit.

We should have a new default instance.

There should be no default instance. That just leads to people all collecting on a single instance.

Have no default instance.

There already is no default instance. lemmy.ml isn’t an instance that aims to be for everyone.

Lemmy.ml should stop federating with lemmygrad.

If you don’t like them federating with that particular instance you may want to look at other instances that better fit you.

The only thing that I think could be changed is the name of lemmy.ml. Its name and the fact that it is the biggest instance may lead to the false conclusion that it is in some way supposed to be the default instance. Maybe join-lemmy.org should be modified a bit to suggest a lot more random instances.

Maybe for the “All” there could be a sort type made available that favours posts coming from less active instances. That could make the smaller instances more popular (favouring decentralization), and reduce the by some excessive perceived noise that may come from some instances in the all tab.

Helium is by no means a scarce element, it’s after Hidrogen the second most abundant in the universe, 24% of the total element mass. It is not as abundant on Earth and has to be obtained from natural gas

Scarce for us terrestrians that don’t live in a futuristic sci-fi world where we go around harvesting resources from planets.

which is why it is used in current weather balloons

Actually I think people use both hydrogen balloons and helium balloons for that.

The problem with helium is that it’s already very scarce, despite having very important uses across many fields and once it’s gone it’s gone (unless maybe if somewhere in the future we begin using nuclear fusion, I guess)

Couldn’t we somehow engineer a more modern airship that uses the much more available hydrogen instead, but with proper measures against the outbreak of fires?

So you like the number 171 122 452 428 141 311 372 468 338 881 272 839 092 270 544 893 520 369 393 648 040 923 257 279 754 140 647 424 000 000 000 000 000?

Yeah, it was kind of a bad joke and just sounds weird. My reasoning behind the answer was the following:

  • Your own children are probably one of the things you love the most in this world, it is rare for someone to hate their child. (therefore they are most loved as requested by the question)
  • Conceiving, gestating and giving birth is an effort from the mother, and therefore the offspring can be called the fruits of her work. (and are thus fruit as requested by the question) I thought that giving this answer would be unexpected in the context of this question, but make sense with the reasoning given (“the fruits of a mother’s labour”). I considered that to be a bit funny.
  • Labour is a synonym of work, but can also refer to the last stage of pregnancy. Depending on the meaning the word “labour” takes, the sentence’s meaning does change, but both interpretations still make sense in the context of the answer. I thought that that double meaning adds a bit more to the fun mentioned in the previous point.

Children, the fruits of a mother’s labour. :)

I think there’s something to be said for Portugal.

Maybe in the inland, but if there is any conflict in the ocean, you will want to stay far away from the islands and the coast, since they will probably be important strategic locations for the war in the Atlantic. It is also a NATO member and will probably get involved if anything happens.

I don’t think you can block whole instances yet, but you can block sublemmies. Settings > Blocks.

I use it often and it doesn’t really seem slow to me.

And one can also normally access DuckDuckGo’s search results through it.

Lemmy is a federated network. The idea with federation is that you’re supposed to join or create an instance that fits your idea of “best instance”. If you dislike the fact that lemmy.ml is an instance for “leftist privacy and FOSS enthusiasts” you should look for another instance that in your opinion is better.

Note that this doesn’t necessarily isolate people with different views (creating an “echo-chamber”), because different instances can still communicate with each other if those instances aren’t blocking the other ones. If you check the “All” tab on the instance’s main page, you can see content posted on other instances too. This page shows how lemmy.ml is connected with other instances: https://lemmy.ml/instances

This site offers a graphical representation of the lemmy federation: https://lemmymap.feddit.de/

You can limit the search engines used with stuff like !ddg or !google in your search.

You are completely misunderstanding the vegan diet. As I and @Slatlun@lemmy.ml said before, being vegan only means you abstain from animals and animal derived products. You can eat everything that wasn’t obtained from animals. So there’s nothing wrong with eating fungi. Some mushrooms, are in fact a very rich source of proteins.

How is yeast not vegan? Also, yeast is not bacteria, but rather fungi. Vegans do not eat animals and animal derived products. Fungi, bacteria, plants, protozoa and all that stuff is not animals, although they are living things.

And what is wrong with artificially produced complements?

I really recommend foraging using a dedicated book, not some random humans from the internet.

Before you gave the definition I thought it was some kind of special Dungeons&Dragons mode for mobile phones. Not sure how that would look like.

What are the main differences between gtio.io and wolfballs (not meant as an insult, but a genuine question to clear up the goals and general philosophy of the instance)?

the only thing that bothers me is lemmy.ml bears the name of the platform

I mean, so does lemmy.pt and lemmy.cat, but you are right, people see it as the first instance recommended on join-lemmy with the most users and that is has lemmy as its name and think it’s in some way the official instance.

Probably due to the sudden influx of GenZedong users after their subreddit got quarantined.

I think they might be referring to the Julianus ban, who posted about their ban recently, which is the only one I think should maybe have been handled differently, but I don’t know where the Belgium the vegan part comes from.

There are other instances that may be more tolerant of other views if you consider that this instance is not tolerant enough. It should be noted that lemmy.ml is described in the sidebar as “a community of leftist privacy and FOSS enthusiasts”, so I think it should have been pretty clear that there was going to be a bias.

The admins are allowed to moderate however they like with the rules they see appropriate. If you disagree with their decisions, you shouldn’t expect to be welcomed on lemmy.ml and should instead look for another lemmy instance that better aligns with your ideas.

There isn’t any instance that allows such content yet, as far as I know, but you can always create one.

Maybe randomly sort the instances with more than x users?

Advocacy on subreddits that are involved in the DOSing of the Lemmygrad instance of Lemmy?
Is it counterproductive to explain misconceptions about Lemmy and advocate for its use on anti-communist subreddits that have suddenly given Lemmy a lot of attention (some by DOSing) due to the quarantining of the GenZedong subreddit and subsequent migration of its users from there to Lemmygrad? I thought it could be a great way to increase Lemmy adoption now that it is getting so much attention from them. However, some people on there actively are trying to harm the Lemmygrad instance, and I worry commenting on there would bring more of that unwanted attention to that instance. Should I or should I not get involved?
