I think the difference with a game is you don’t seek violent games out for the sake of fulfilling murderous urges. In

we prolly play very different videogames lol 😅

running around in a busy gta 5 lobby or playing a counter strike match on eastern european servers often makes me think that the most vile, hateful, murderous, abusive psychopaths all came together to play with me, if i didn’t know that these are actually normal people irl

i think many people actively seek to play games to realise their violent tendencies, griefing everything that moves and does’t move in minecraft, just driving around on a gta 5 map and blowing everyone up for no reason

and just like these users posting their abusive conversations with chatbots, in videogames people do post clips of, say, creating a massive car pile up on a highway and then exploding all of them, and it’s not considered bad in any way

Enabling reinforces the behavior in people, it’s like giving someone fake casino games. If they have what it takes to become addicted, they will soon turn to real casinos with real money because the fake thing is just not the same. By all accounts enabling is the exact opposite of what you should do to treat a disorder, which is to curb it.

once again, couldn’t this same logic be applied to videogames? i still fail to see the difference between this and videogames: of course an ai chat bot is very different from a relationship with a real person, with the latter establishing boundaries and saying no to things, but so are the aspects of owning a gun and driving a car different compared to a videogame, where you can behave however irresponsibly you want, which in no way translates into how you’d want to handle a gun and a car in real life

wouldn’t this logic be applicable to videogames also? when i’m playing a game, if at any random point i’d be interrupted and asked whether the people in the game are real, i’d of course say no, but whenever i’m playing the game, i don’t ever think about that: if it’s a good game, i feel sad for the losses of the characters, feel on edge in tense situations, and happy for their gains, even knowing that these characters aren’t real

but even if it’s enabling, why is this a bad thing? for example, bdsm-esque fantasies are fairly common, and as long as people play them out in a consenting, safe manner, there’s nothing harmlful about it, and people aren’t being dragged into mental asylums for it

i’m not exactly sure what the nature of verbal abuse the article is discussing, but i think it’s a fair comparison

i’m not sure, i’m not a psychologist 🤷

there may be some underlying issues causing this that you’d want to seek help for, or there may be not and this is just another of the myriad of weird fantasies people tend to have and you can’t “correct” much about it idk 🤷‍♀️

exactly my thoughts

if anything, a person releasing their harmful-to-a-real-person tendencies on an algorithm is a sign that this person realises the harmful consequences of these tendencies and therefore doesn’t abuse a real person

not much different from videogames, but because of the novelty of this particular case it’s perceived as bad 🤷‍♀️

do you have an allergy or do you just dislike it as is?

i’m not trying to diminish the impact a regular credit score has on a person, but doesn’t social credit score extend beyond simply lending money, to things like purchasing tickets, being able to attend a particular school or a university, that is, you can get on in life without taking out loans, but you can’t get on in life without buying a train ticket

and people will tell you capitalism doesn’t breed innovation 🤦‍♀️

these people just discovered a really shitty version of pumped hydro storage 🤯

seriously though, there’s been a ton more spam the last few weeks, i guess that’s the price you pay for more users 🤷‍♀️

yeah, arm/riscv manufacturers are infinitely better at naming their components than x64 component manufacturers 😄

i’m not really sure tbh

the particular one that I really want to get is called mangopi, and it’s based on the allwinner D1 core, which in turn uses alibaba’s xuantie C906 core, which is open source, however I’m unsure whether other components of the board are open source (like other controllers and stuff), but at least it claims so on their website

yeah, that’s be nice 🤗

though the seller/manufacturer of the board I’m eyeing promised to organize a group buy for interested people in eu, and put it on aliexpress some time later

cheap risc-v boards that can run a full linux distribution

there are some cool projects I’m following, but they’re pretty much all in china, and only available via taobao 😬
