As a fan of pixelfed I occasionally checkout to see if it is causing any buzz on comments, generally around instagram-is-doing-something-bad posts. The verge posted [this article](https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/26/23279815/instagram-feed-kardashians-criticism-fuck-it-im-out) and there were some pro pixelfed comments that have been removed.

There is still one comment, which is a simple link to the .org. But I don't see why the comments were removed unless they were auto flagged as bot-spam perhaps. Yet other comments pimping and linking to other options remain.

Makes me a bit grumpy, with all the work Dansup has been putting in.
Edit title - I didnt really think verstappen braved anything more that the other drivers. In form best car hes ahead by a mile. ALONSO! and Haas woo! I havent watched a canadian GP before but looking forward to the midfield scrap.
Hopefully Norris/Russell can charge up the field as they seem to be good for the overtakes. Vettel Sadface.
From the initial performance Looking like business as usual - Leclerc taking pole but Verstappen blasting past on the straights. Perez must like his chances but who knows how may redflags / escape road exits will be taken in the race...
After last years disappointment I hope he can take the race this year. Blistering pace by the looks.
If there is one race I can skip in the season it’s this one. I don’t know why F1 is still here given the car size / track limitations.
Excluding existing archiving sites, do you have an expectation or think that data stored on lemmy should be permanent? E.g last 20+ years. Would it matter if old inactive content was culled? If you had the ability to export data if a sever was due to go down, what would you actually do with it.
