The scoring mechanism on Lemmy is addictive
I can't read a news article anymore without thinking of how many upvotes I'd get if I posted it to Lemmy. People are fucking dying. I suppose the scoring mechanism is a way to distinguish higher-quality posts from lower-quality ones, but I also wonder whether "humane" social media like Lemmy blindly adopts techniques from mainstream social media that serves to increase engagement and profit. I wonder what a radical anticapitalist rethinking of social media would look like.

It's extremely easy to get banned in matrix chat rooms. I've lost track of how many rooms i'm banned from. Seemingly, piss of a moderator in a unrelated room and then boom banned from some random room
I've been banned from rooms i've never stepped foot in. A lot of matrix mods also seem to do the cop of shoot first ask questions never

I haven't seen signal users fighting matrix users in a while. It's nice.
I still see xmpp users taking a wee on other users though *sigh*

Not literally everything is due to capitalism

A lot of normies text with like 0 'intimacy'
If I send a lemming a long reply, they often reply with a similar length reply. Normies often like 1 word answer reply in dm to like a paragraph. An interesting way to observe who the leets are.

Looking up a friend on my Facebook friend list is like Russian roulette - half the time they have deleted me as a friend
Specifically people I met a long time ago or people i haven't spoken to as much Overall Facebook's a very dramatic social media. The fact that people's faces r on it calms a bunch of people down. But still, lots of of toxicity in the DMs It's a pretty trashy social media that emphasizes the advantages of being antisocial

I don't like being in positions of power. It makes people act too different.
THat drax quote about beautiful people applies here pretty well.

Lemmy dot C.A.
A canadian-run community, geared towards canadians, but all are welcome!

Welcome to Lemmy.CA!

“Lemmy dot C.A.” is so named due to it running the Lemmy software (see the links in the very bottom right for more info), being part of the Lemmy side of the Fediverse, and it’s (somewhat) geared toward Canucks, hosted in Canuckistan, and run by a Canuck. It is, however, not at all restricted to Canucks, or Canuck culture/topics/etc. All are welcome!

We have some rules here:

  • No bigotry - including racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, or xenophobia. Code of Conduct.
  • Be respectful. Everyone should feel welcome here.
  • No porn.
  • No Ads / Spamming.

(Much of this is all based on the well-established groundwork of the Lemmy home instance, lemmy.ml)
