The question is already biased here : you could have ask if we think everyone SHOULD be vegan.
If you say ‘needs’ it is hard to understand what do you mean and it pushes the idea of forcing people which puts a negative light on the end goal.
'Need` for what? The environment crisis? Sustaining a certain amount of people/growth? Ethical concern?
Obviously any vegan will want others to be vegan, the same way any capitalist wants everyone to be capitalist, communist the same, etc. The opposite works too, non-vegan won’t be happy to be forced into veganism.
In my opinion the better question is asking if we should be vegan. Now everyone can participate to the debate without feeling forced. Also trying to push rules on people who disagrees is not the best way usually, it is tolerable when they are in extreme minority.
The vegan question has been talked for many years now and beside conservatism there are not a lot of arguments against veganism in theory. The practice is way more difficult, especially with current communication being held by weird billionaires and democratic processes being crushed all over the world.
I am sorry I don’t see any debate here, I hope I made my point clear.
Plants do communicate and form social bonds. (quick internet search : https://theconversation.com/plants-thrive-in-a-complex-world-by-communicating-sharing-resources-and-transforming-their-environments-156932)
I don’t really care about mediocre developers infightings. Bad dev chose to depend on 3rd party code because they are not good enough to code a left pad function. Bad ecosystem is being used by said mediocre devs…
I don’t need all of this to make my web application. If tomorrow npm is dead I can switch or even code an equivalent myself. I keep my dependencies at minimum and use tools and library such as npm as ways of doing things faster. Not doing things I don’t understand/can’t do myself.
If people dislike npm ways of doing they can easily code a better one. Actually several alternatives exist.
If you have security concerns you can had additional check such as inhouse code review of packages and save hash of said version. You could even share this knowledge with trusted partners in a common database.
We have other issues were laws (patent) or economic system (entrepreneurship) is a real barrier to better solutions. My point of view of this matter is that it is mainly a lack of skills and bad culture.
This seems to be clickbait as no distribution would properly work: https://social.treehouse.systems/@AsahiLinux/109931764533424795 .
I didn’t know this omglinux but the lack of source/explanation is worrying.
No one is going to spend the resources to DDOS you. Also those attacks are temporary, they are a plague when having a website unreachable means money loss. For instance anyone can DDOS my blog I wouldn’t care, even for a whole week (I have IP bans mechanism btw).
I don’t mean the main concern of privacy is not relevant, just the DDOS specifically shouldn’t concern hosts unless they are making daily profit from their website traffic.
There are many layers we could talk about when we say “privacy”.
First about IP:
There’s also traffic monitoring:
The op question makes no sense to me though. Torrents are just file you want to get/share, there’s no privacy involved in that. Maybe they meant torrent clients.
I came here because reddit community is really bad (upvoting bad stuff) and mods aren’t helping. Still reading posts there. Here I feel comfortable voicing my opinion and I love the FOSS part of it (and I love infernoJS too).
I can see some uses for reddit for professional related topic, I once publish a blog post that got me traction and clients. I never used reddit for small/personnal/political talks because of this too.
I have never been in social networks (no twitter/facebook/mastodon/etc), I don’t see yet the pros of the fediverse.
