he admitted he moved to Romania because it’s easier to get away with sexual assault there. that tells you all you need to know

total equality. children deserve the same rights as adults. parents should guide, not exercise dictatorial control. a parent that doesn’t respect the rights and autonomy of their child does not deserve to be a parent.

the internet, by its very nature, can never truly be regulated. the deep web is huge and out of the reach of the powers that be, and it’s not prohibitively difficult to keep yourself hidden. information is slippery, for better or for worse, and if people think something is worthwhile they will make sure it escapes regulation or censorship. but if you’re talking about the big companies, they can absolutely be regulated, you just have to strongarm them into complying

ah, i see. specifically, i see that the only religion they use to back up their claims that religion is bad is Christianity. no mention of Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. anywhere. so uh let’s see here…that’s a Texas sharpshooter fallacy (some people who are bad are Christians, therefore Christianity is bad) combined with an induction fallacy (Christianity is bad, therefore all religions are bad)? so much for the logic they claim to live by

i’ve been called a debate bro before for asking for sources to back up claims of fact. is that a common debate bro tactic?

explain like i'm 5: what is Reddit atheism?
i may be very naïve, but i genuinely have no idea what Reddit atheism is and how it differs from atheism in general

Fedora claims GIMP is sandboxed. If you click “High” next to “Permissions”, you see a little exclamation mark saying it has “File system” permissions.

it’s a Fedora problem, not a Flatpak problem (this is GNOME Software on Pop OS 22.04)

seriously though, i found the essay…wanting. it was far too focused on the problems, which is of course fine if you don’t have solutions to them, but the author does have solutions (presented at the very end). the tone is excessively pessimistic, which would turn a lot of readers off from reading these legitimate grievances

i only have two people blocked, at least one of which has been stirring shit in this thread. i should use the block button more, it seems like 99% of the toxicity on Lemmy comes from 1% of the people

wait, so country music wasn’t always terrible?

i use Déjà Dup to make daily backups of my home folder to a Raspberry Pi

no, it’s purely a concept. there aren’t any plans i could find to actually build a functional os

i got taught about the the United States’ Gilded Age in 11th grade history. that’s all it took for me

karma. one reason we have so much high-quality content here is because there’s no incentive to gain upvotes. upvotes aren’t displayed on your profile and no communities are locked to people below a certain upvote count. if karma were added to Lemmy, we’d get a lot of pandering to the lowest common denominator and the entire community would become stratified

don’t engage them in public. engaging them in public gives them a platform to spread their vitriol and gives them visibility, which kind of defeats what you’re trying to do. as for dms and other private settings, use your discretion. i believe nobody is beyond saving, but it’s not your job to fix these people. don’t expend too much energy on them.

i think the Free Software movement is lost. regardless of the truth of these accusations, the supporters of the Free Software Movement are mindlessly defending RMS, who’s just an irrelevant figurehead now. the Free Software Movement is looking less like a movement and more like a personality cult

you could even extend it further and allow any sort of key-value pair like Mastodon.

this browser game has a tool to memorize toki pona words, tools to learn sitelen pona, and a dictionary.

i made a community for Laiqbun, an artistic constructed language.
