The views on lemmygrad are very much outside the general acceptable norms for the English speaking internet.
Even if you agree with their views, you must admit that it is very off putting for most people who come to Lemmy.ml.
I think the purpose of a default instance should be to showcase the software, not to showcase the current community (which is dominated by lemmygrad users right now)…
I think either:
Personally I have been using and promoting Lemmy less because I find the lemmygrad content off putting. I feel a similar way about this content as I did about place like r/thedonald in 2016.
Well done to everyone involved!
How can we follow peertube channels? I can’t seem to see any listed in communities on lemmy.ml
yeah sorry, I only just found out about it.
This video talks about the latest news. It basically talks about a version called mini-d, people are speculating that it is a version for testing manufacturing.
Reddit is really good for hobby/niche content. Reddit communities have become the largest online communities for quiet a few different interests where previously the largest communities would be independent forums.
It would be great if some forums decided to use Lemmy. I guess there are barriers to this, e.g. user interface changes might not be wanted and it might be difficult to export/import the forum history.
He explained in his podcast that when he said using adblock was piracy he did not mean it was necissarily criminal or immoral.
He means piracy in the sense of:
the unauthorized use or reproduction of another’s work.
i.e. if there is an implicit (and sometimes explcit) agreement to watch adverts when you consume a lot of internet content.
He is clearly not anti-piracy as he has made videos explaining how to set up a pi-hole (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBXTnrD_Zs4&t=864s). He just decided an a particular defintion for the word piracy.
A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm —“in satire, irony is militant”, according to literary critic Northrop Frye— but parody, burlesque, exaggeration, juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing.
I think seahorse was being ironic/sarcastic
I like to use Lemmy though a browser on mobile, the interface is good (especially compared to reddit) but I think the buttons could be changed a bit to make it better.
I think it might improve the mobile UI to have all buttons at the bottom (sort of like in lemmur):
Buttons that I think would be useful at the bottom:
Here are the projects that NLnet supports. A lot of really cool ones, including Lemmy.
Not using a seatbelt will still increase the chance that you are injured. This will put a burden on society.
Asking your estate to pay is useless if you have no money, insurance claims can reach the millions which most people can not afford. Pedestrians and cyclists aren’t and should not need to be insured.
Hardware problems/poor drivers: Linux runs well on some devices and not so well.on others. It is largely up to the manufacturer to make drivers so this will improve if manufacturers want to support Linux.
Software availability: Projects like nix, app image and flathub try to fix this by providing a way developers can package their app so that it can be used on all distros. As far as I can tell:
As far as I can tell nix is the best option long term but it doesn’t have a simple gui yet/at the moment. Although there is one being worked on.
There are quiet clear foreign policy differences between Obama and Trump.
Obama approached Iran diplomatically, Trump bombed a general, probably trying to start a war.
Under Obama US military was in Kurdistan, which prevented Turkey from attacking. Trump removed the troops just as Turkey was gearing up to attack.
Edit: Also Obama removed the blockade on Cuba. Trump resumed the blockade on Cuba.
Yeah, I think I will move to beehaw
