In Detroit, police brutalize and arrest protesters demonstrating against police brutality. Police case alleging protesters were conspiring to commit crimes collapses after police are unable to come up with a single instance proving it. But the accusation of conspiring to commit a crime is splashed…

Small beard Lenin:


So? COVID is invisible and you don’t know who is getting infected.


It isn’t time is money so much as time costs money. As in you need to pay to be able to have more free time.


What are you going on about? Tons of British people died from COVID. Portuguese too.

The reason less people are dying now is in large part due to vaccination.


Seeing the progression of tech companies in terms of invasiveness, probably.


Not necessarily. Soferman’s comment is at -1 while you’re at 2 as I type this, and his comment is above yours because it’s new enough compared to yours to outweigh the point ranking.


No? Especially not the people most at risk of covid. If they did, they’d know, because they’d either have been hospitalized or dead.

Covid has been shown to have permanent effects in even young healthy people. I hope to god not everyone has caught it.



Well you have the choice of two additives: a vaccine, or a virus that has already killed millions.


Votes mean almost nothing right now. The rate at which posts come in is far from fast enough that a single downvote will bury a post like would happen on Reddit. I feel like at most a post will move down maybe one rank or something. Plus, that’s only in the global pages, if every post in your community is being downvoted, it cancels out. We’re also thinking about ways to tweak the ranking algorithm so early downvotes are weighed less heavily.


Hopefully they release some Linux compatible versions then. /s


And they made it worse too. You’re not drinking tea right if you use teabags over loose leaves.

There are no rules on when you can vote other than that you can’t vote on the same post/comment from more than one account.



Any cryptocurrency not on a non-mineable and energy efficient blockchain system like Proof of Stake needs to die at this point, for the sake of the environment.


Still, please remove that reference. It’s against the rules. Thanks.




There is another one on the Play store, but it’s not open source and very little is known about it. I wouldn’t recommend it honestly as you basically have no idea if it’s collecting data or outright malware or not.


I like the Reddit way of doing it where the user has pages which lists what they’ve upvoted and downvoted, but they can choose not to display it to other users in the settings.







Requesting some tech communities

With @LucasDondo@lemmy.ml having deleted his content and presumably having decided to stop using Lemmy, I’d like to pick up some of their orphaned tech communities. Specifically, !degoogle@lemmy.ml and [!android@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy
