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.

Thr article’s TLDR is not wrong, what is wrong is its title, because that’s Internet design and has always been.

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.

“Here are two reasons why nobody replaced it yet” - Title

Mastodon shouldn’t replace Twitter, much like Twitter didn’t replace Tumblr or Tumblr, Facebook or MySpace. These are trends, Mastodon should get popular, but it shouldn’t be a replacement.

Twitter still should burn to the ground tho, much like any corporation should burn to the ground.

Try just searching globally InternetArchive

You did not get the question, my guy

What a load of bull, i’m gen Z and i use gifs extremely frequently within chatting apps

Yes, but the article is on Ads, not privacy

I got premium essentially gifted to me, so i’ll use it, but also adblocker exists

As if the US flag isn’t

Yes, as it would either way, losing one niche doesn’t mean shit. Abide by the rules imposed or move

People already made a fork, search Newpipe Sponsorblock

Not immoral, but just… Not supporting monetarily anyone. No ads on videos, skipping promos, no YT Premium. Simply not helping anyone’s pockets

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.

Guys this is an april fools for those who are too stuck in politics to see it.

Ubuntu has turned bothersome as of late so i Wouldn’t really recommend it but i do recommend most derivatives

Piracy is a gray area, stop being offended, you pirate things, whether adblock is or Isn’t piracy it won’t change your life. Just move on and leave things be.

Well, they’re made with Gitea, so you can always setup your own instance or use another instance of gitea

I’d go with setting up or using someone else’s Nextcloud or you use Protonmail. Everything comes at a cost, your only option to be truly private is to not exist.

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

There’s a great reddit app alternative called Stealth, you won’t need to log in and you can see the content you want to see, you may download it from F-Droid

The last thing is true, i block first-party and third-party cookies in Vivaldi

I accept and welcome our AI overlords, because by this point it’s 100% deserved

Apple Store ends up doing the same thing. These app stores are horrible for developers and small projects or start-ups!

Why can’t both be true? Also at least the Linux goal got somewhere (servers and somewhat desktop attention)
