I was literally just saying Lemmy could use pronoun tags

if you’re on PC you can hover your mouse over their user, and the link preview thingy that most browsers have in the bottom left corner of the screen will tell you the username and the instance they’re using.

edit; i forgot, hovering also gives you a preview from lemmy itself of their user.

And the US supreme court moving in favour of the corporations when people who claimed to be ex-child slaves on chocolate plantations in the Ivory Coast accused Nestle of using child slavery.

Americans: “we defend human rights overseas. Slavery is a horrible thing that needs to be ended at all costs!”

Also Americans: supports the invasion of Libya, which resulted in slavery being relegalized. Support sex slaver regimes in the Middle East and Africa. Supports regimes that still use chattel slavery

I feel like your reasoning to disregard me is flawed at best. It doesn’t matter if my account is from or, that’s why we federate, so instances can participate with each other’s content.

As well, my comment was asking for more information because “is approving war on Ukraine” isn’t enough information for people to know what exactly you want to be answered. Do you want to know how the community on feels about the war? do you want to know the official admin/dev stance on the war? Are you wanting to know if people are supportive of the war itself, or a faction of the war? Is the inverse of that question what you want, to know if people are against the war in its entirety, or just against a faction? You didn’t clarify that at all. Also the body text “Should it be shut down a few months if it is ?” is nonsensical. What do you mean by “shut down”, why would you think it needed to be “shut down”? Again, not enough information for an answer.

This post likely did poorly because you didn’t provide the information people need to know what you needed from them, my comment getting 5 upvotes (that are visible to me, sometimes federation is weird about not showing votes. also with mine subtracted from the total) proves that people agreed that you failed to provide information.

hello yes, police? I’ve just witnessed a pun crime.

What exactly are you asking? because what you’ve written doesn’t really provide enough information for anyone to really know what you want answered.

I always tip as much as I possibly can when I order from UberEats (or any of the other services), I’ve been looking at UberEats for a while as a possible way of making a little money while I’m out of work. You’re meant to make a delivery fee for every delivery made, plus the tips. But that fee is just like 4 or so dollars, not enough to even cover gas.

Tip your waiters, but more importantly, tip your delivery service driver too. Tip them handsomely. Tip more than a fair amount. They really need it.

One of the worst parts of Reddit is the hundreds of reposts you’d see over and over and over and over, that were only reposted because someone saw that it got a lot of upvotes previously. Or the posts that were only posted because the OP wants some sensationalism upvotes.

Then you’ve also got subs that require a certain karma threshold to post, users to bully other users for having low karma, etc. Just a pain in the ass all around, that gets addictive because “imaginary number go up, that mean people like me”.

The karma system’s probably, at least in my opinion, one of the biggest things that ruined Reddit.

You know, when I asked for a guillotine, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind.

(is it okay to joke about this? hopefully it is, if not then I apologize)

it feels like too much effort for one person to be doing, but if it is one person, then they’re far more pitiful than I assumed. seriously, can you imagine what a person who’d go through this much effort to accomplish nothing must be living like? It genuinely makes me sad for them to think about.

like, if it is one person, and they’re not just a 15 year old with a bunch of free time, I’ll be genuinely shocked. pitiful is a word I’ve already used in this comment, but it’s honestly the only nice word I can think of for that level of depravity.

You should probably find some active users to appoint as moderators, to reduce your workload.

Changing your user? no. I’m not even sure if the instance hosts can do that for you.

But you can change your display name on the settings tab. I do it often.

There have been studies published that say language learning after your 20s is exponentially harder, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Just understand that it might take more time, and might not come as naturally to you as you’d hope.

If you’re able to learn your basics, enough to form simple sentences. You know, things like “Where is the bathroom?” “How much is this food?” “I like dogs” etc. You’ll be able to start immersing yourself in Spanish at your own pace. Studies show that immersion in a language is the easiest way to learn, so that’s my only real advice.

I’m trying to learn Spanish at the moment as well, I live in Texas in an area with a lot of Spanish speakers, and I’m hoping being able to speak Spanish will help me find work. So I know the struggle of learning this language too. Hell, I studied German for like 6 straight years and only got to a kindergarten level.

The Lemmy devs have already decided that karma is just a bottomless pit that just harms users mental health, so it’s highly doubtful we’d ever have a reputation system be introduced, as that’s literally the same thing.

Also, captchas can be preventative to people with certain disabilities, so introducing them (I believe it would be reintroducing, actually) would contradict Lemmy’s disability-inclusive culture. As well, email verification wouldn’t work for people who would prefer anonymity. And nefarious users could just use a spoof mail account, so the introduction of required email account verification would really only harm privacy-focused real users, and do nothing to prevent trolls. Also, while on the subject and though you didn’t mention it, we don’t ban IPs because some VPNs reuse them for multiple people. So banning the IP of a troll might also cause the ban of real users.

Yes, but only because I’m a hobby historian, and I think it would’ve been really cool to’ve existed during some of the periods I study. Though, being born in those times, it wouldn’t have been half as interesting. So if I could visit that would be a lot better, I could nerd out and fully appreciate not only the great historic value of being there, but also the great strides our society has taken since these times.

I’d like to go back to the victorian era, and spend a while studying trades.

I’d like to visit the late medieval period, to examine the social structures.

I’d like to go to pre-roman Europe and learn the languages, to get accounts from the people who actually lived there at the time. So we could use first-person accounts of these peoples, rather than the propagandist Roman ones.

as far as I know, and i’m no authority, most of the communities would be okay with it. Just plop it into the proper political community for what the subject matter is (if it’s a pro-socialist video, put it in c/socialism, if it’s about the United States put it in c/unitedstates (or whatever that one’s url is, i don’t feel like looking rn) etc.).

Yeah, i’m talking about Liu Xiaobo, I looked at the wiki to make sure my information was (as far as wikipedia is concerned) correct. he essentially got the prize for being arrested by Chinese officials, after being loudly anti-CCP. But his career as an activist has amounted to practically nothing, aside from being a mouthpiece for the west.

Pretty much all of the peace prize laureates are of white western origin, serve white western goals, or appease white western audiences. There are some outliers to that, of course, and especially in recent years, but all in all the prize mostly serves as a means of legitimizing western geopolitical goals. Hell, they gave Gorbachev one when he dissolved the USSR, an event that caused millions of deaths, multiple civil wars, famine, economic collapse, and generally the opposite of peace. They gave Obama one, pretty much just for being the first black president. The next year they gave one to an anti-communist activist no one in the west had heard of, who also never in his career achieved anything of note.

I’m in full support of the Nobel prizes for sciences and literature, but the peace prize is just a propagandist joke.

What do you do for a living? I'm always fascinated to know.
in addition to that, did you choose your job or was it something you fell into? do you enjoy it? I wanna know all the neat lil details, this stuff is really cool to me.
