Just finished helping out some fellow leftists on r/PCM
"Leftists" there don't even know how to respond to libs. They don't read theory, it seems.

Trying to ask for help on r/linux

Is reddit throttling or speed limiting frontends?
It's been like one or two weeks, under which overlooking at local subscriptions on https://teddit.net is becoming really slow. Refreshing, or loading a particular entry has become really slow. Haven't tried https://libredd.it instead yet, since I do prefer the teddit interface. Is it just me? Would it be just teddit, or libreddit as well? Thanks ! Edit: libreddit is pretty slow as well, :( Edit 2: Things look better on libredd.it now, teddit still seems way slow, though better. That sort of tells me the issue affects teddit more. Actually on libredd.it it feels like one or two weeks back now. I'm staying with libredd.it on compact mode then, though I preferred teddit UI, since I no longer feel the same slowness as before, neither as with teddit. So to me, issue is sort of gone. Thanks all !

They got popular in 2020 and were quickly forgotten. I don't even care about it that much.

Usually Linux meets with curses or jeers in mainstream subreddits. Maybe things are changing?


Is reddit blocking *.ml domains or *specifically* instance domains? (UPDATE: Reddit is blocking all .ml domains.)
Everytime I post a link to lemmy.ml or lemmygrad.ml (with no url shortener); the posts get removed. I can't tell if reddit is blocking *.ml domains in general; or specifically Lemmy domains.


/r/Place Admin Abuse and the Orange Cat
https://v.redd.it/komiw3hmv5r81 Not my original words but can't find original source: >A reddit admin was caught abusing her position to set her tile cooldown to zero (note: cooldown is 5 minutes and 20 minutes for email verified and unverified users respectively) in order to erase an [Orange Cat](https://telegramchannels.me/stickers/s-marseycat) that was [previously posted by Reddit on twitter.](https://twitter.com/Reddit/status/1509990348378058755?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1509990348378058755%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Frdrama.net%2Fpost%2F56728%2Freddit-calling-marsey-on-place-a) >This cartoon cat was the creation of Anton Dimitriev, a Ukrainian artist who is currently living in Kharkiv that is besieged by the Russian military as we speak. >His art station: https://www.artstation.com/mine_flood >His deviantart: https://www.deviantart.com/anton-d/gallery >In addition, reddit permanently banned everyone who placed a tile in that area or tried to change her tiles to repair the Orange Cat. Merely placing pixels near the cat resulted in a personal ban, resulting in the bannings of users from /r/AnarchyChess as their subreddit logo bordered the Orange Cat. >[People who tried asking about their bans had their posts removed as well](https://i.imgur.com/TR0UQzm_d.webp?maxwidth=9999&fidelity=high) >https://old.reddit.com/r/place/comments/tukjit/why_was_my_account_shadowbanned_after_placing_a/ >Reddit went a step further and manually deleted the accounts so that [whenever you try to visit an account banned for placing a tile - you get this page.](https://i.imgur.com/DRtHWQg_d.webp?maxwidth=9999&fidelity=high) >[Example of an account manually deleted](https://old.reddit.com/user/Quad_RIP_Deux/) - they [last posted yesterday](https://old.reddit.com/r/Drama/comments/ttuqtd/100700/) proving it is a real account. As you can see, this was an active and real account that was not only banned, but deleted. >[2nd example](https://old.reddit.com/user/Treecko251/) - [proof](https://old.reddit.com/r/rugbyunion/comments/ttnf5w/iron_will_documentary_by_quins_about_will_evans/?context=3) >Other people caught on, resulting in posts calling it out that reached the front page. Initially the admins tried to do damage control by setting a filter on /r/place to automatically remove any post that mentions the cheating or the Orange Cat that was overwritten. Now they seem to be going back and forth on the issue after the public outcry grew too big to suppress. Impressively bad. Why create a pixel board with limited space if the admins will literally ban people for placing pixels over the area they want?

The amount of Russophobia and anti Russian censorship ongoing currently on Reddit is astounding.
I am observing a very similar sentiment to Sinophobia, now regarding Russia. Reddit's audience is primarily 80% USA + West EU, and the rest 20% also includes a lot of East Europe and other countries, leaving for 5-10% anti-hatred people. On the other hand, Western world makes up for a mere 12% of the world's population. This speaks volumes about how majoritarianism is flipped on the internet by Western world to suit their narratives and loudmouth whatever they want dominating in virtual space. And since moderators are also from said Western countries, the biases are completely intentional and systematic. For all the "human rights" and "no censorship" nonsense these Western countries spout with the assumption of having high horse on moral grounds, they lie a lot systematically. Just an observation.



"Over the past few years we have seen a slowdown on the project as people move on, and not a lot of interest in supporting the project. Right now the project is supported by 2 people and these are primarily bug fixes or dependency updates. You can see from the project graph what this looks like in terms of activity, with significant drops over the past few years." Interesting as many users are saying Reddit will be unusable for them, and they plan to no longer use Reddit. Well maybe, well maybe not, but interesting that the interest is waning on the Reddit side.
