That last part doesn’t seem like an argument and more an accusation. And for the first part, certainly, however for how many leftist activists i see only and how many people scream for society to “CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE” it has done nothing of the sort. Its huge impact is seen in specific areas, harassment of companies (employees) to deliver better products (bankruptcy), amber alerts, casual awareness of whatever the hell is THE thing we need to fight for… And yet nothing is solved becausr it’s an individual talking about paying attention to an individual and not giving applicable solutions, everyone loves Sophism apparently.
I agree, it was the reason i tried it before, but i can’t at all keep myself accountable for that database which can still be stolen through my own carelessness, be lost thanks to myself deleting the database by accident or simply be out of sync between my 3 different devices. So preferably i would want for at least one of those issues to be solved through the cloud.
For the comments that say “what constitutes as AI art” well, if you have decided to take a look at any AI generated art you’d easily be able to tell. And no matter how many art styles it can imitate, it’s exactly that an imitation you can see the differences and the issues that come with trying to do that.
For anyone saying this takes less skill… No it doesn’t, you still need to know exactly how to work with the AI to not make its generated images have broken anatomy, melted skin and broken art.
And for those that say this is horrible because “How dare China make a law to regulate AI art from taking away money from real artists”… Hear yourself and see where these technologies have gotten us with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and so many privacy-invading tools growing unimpeded.
As the reply here said: The absolute statement is completely wrong, since hearing of a product from someone else, even a friend, is advertising. Talking positevely about a movie, tv show can be seen as advertising that show. Seeing an ad that is not targeted is also ok. And finally people need to eat and earn money on the internet, either you sell a product (which needs advertising) or you are the person who does that promo or advert. Not everyone can live off Of Patreon or Donations.
Not everything Free means you’re the product, do research on the email provider, do research on the company. Relying on “You’re the product” is going to be complicated, also paying for anything doesn’t make you less of a product, just look at games.
Set up your own emails or procure an Open-Source provider
DE is the shell, the difference between them is this:
Development rules, Development philosophies, Language made in, Purpose of creation, and the differing features.
KDE can be highly customizable, to the point you could make it look like Gnome, but it’ll never run nor be Gnome. Gnome is more closed off, any customization is reliant on extensions. LXQT allows you a more windows XP look without customization to the level of KDE, but you have more modularity with certain parts of it. XFCE can have plugins to Thunar, and the desktop of xfdesktop, all panels are custimzable to look more like what you want too, but there’s not that giant variety of Themes, unlike KDE.
On the terms of philosophy: You can’t just yank a project to a direction you want, you will either Fork that (making another DE) or you will make your own DE to make it so you’ll command the direction and philosophy. This is the most complete answer you’re ever going to get without having a multiple page essay
Been a while since i saw what i wrote, but if i remember correctly i called for the end of sophism by giving a solution, idk how tf that makes my argument sophist since a sophist would want an eternal argument, that’s all i’ll say here and thank you for your time.
