Well tbh that just describes almost every group of people, most people don’t know fuck all about anything and want things to “just work.” That is why Apple products are so popular (in addition of course to their advertising team successfully making iPods and iPhones a “status symbol.”)

Tbh I think as these things go on they make people less tech proficient, most kids these days only know how to stream and torrenting things is “too hard” for them.

I for one happen to like gaming on Linux, because it means I don’t have to use windows just because I want to play morrowind, I can just load up openmw and start casting spells. Furthermore just because gaming is possible on linux now does not mean anyone will necessarily switch to it without another reason to if they are technoligically challenged, many see linux as too hard anyway, or just want the plug and wait, er…I mean plug and “play,” that windows supposedly gives them. FurtherFurthermore, with the ability to customize Linux to your hearts content and a multitude of good distros from which to choose, the caliber of users should minimally effect you, if at all.

ATM I only use RSS for podcasts with AntennaPod, what am I missing out on?

Even tracking convicts is unethical imo, they paid their debt to society and now they’re out ffs, if they shouldn’t be out then leave them in but to track everyone because “convicts” steps all over their rights and ours.

Is there a good alternative for GitHub that respects privacy?

Not off the top of my head, I’d search “izzyondroid fdroid repo” to find it myself lol.

He’s also wrong. In many “civilized” (which btw every time I say that I feel icky, it feels racist) countries most burglaries are “hot” burglaries, in which the burgaler breaks in while the person is home. This of course carries with it a greater risk of violence as opposed to America where for “some reason” most of our burglaries are when the person is not home. There are also around, and I am going to use the LOWEST estimate from the harvard study that is used to “debunk” defensive gun use, 100,000 defensive gun uses in the country yearly. Compared to 60k gun deaths, 12k of those being homicide, 100k>60k>12k.

It’s on mine. Maybe in izzy’s repo? I have a few enabled.

That jackass used Tor and connected to his campus wifi on his laptop with his creds, started up Tor, and made the bomb threat. He was caught because he didn’t use a bridge and connected to Tor over their wifi with his credentials and he was the only one using Tor at the time. Had he went to some public wifi off camera he likely wouldn’t have been caught actually, or used a bridge, supposedly that would help. Also of course it doesn’t need to be said but I’m gonna: shouldn’t be calling in bomb threats anyway lol.

I’ve been using Librewolf on Fedora, Bromite and Vanadium on mobile, and DDG for search but not super happy with that one and am looking for a replacement myself. Might use startpage, idk.

I am not technical enough to understand some of what you said but you hit on one of the biggest reasons I hate these targeted ads and I don’t hear it a lot, but the “only be shown…already like…bubble” bit, this. I don’t always want ads for shit in my bubble, sometimes I want to learn about new shit ffs! That is of course but one reason, along with the general creepy factor, and the minority report 1984 ass feel of the whole concept.

It boggles my goddamn mind that “normal” people will see this shit and say “Well it sucks but I have nothing to hide anyway.” But think about if back in the day your towns general store’s owner was on your party line and would listen to everyone’s calls to try and use that info to sell you shit. Sure, it is innocuous enough, and you know that line isn’t private so you don’t discuss secret embarrassing things there, but you’d be a little mad. Well turns out he steams open your letters(PMs), too, when you post them from his store. You’d be fucking pissed, the town might get the damn pitchforks and torches! But no, it is fine when facebook/google/apple/whatever colludes and it to the entire world because “I don’t have anything to hide bro.” FUCK that, push back! Use shit that respects you!

I know I’m ranting to the choir here but goddamn I don’t get how these people are fine with all this shit.

Ah, I might do that but I have so much I actually want to listen to haha, any specific episodes I should look out for or just “any random one works?”

Also is it like “actually right wing” or is it just “libertarian that doesn’t agree fully with everything the left says” type deal?

And is it more the traditional sense in that right-left is an economic distinction, so he supports capitalism instead of socialism or communism, or do you mean in the sense it is mostly used now, basically a way to say “he’s racist” without actually saying it?

Wait isn’t this all over Rogan? Isn’t he not even right wing, he just has guests who are sometimes? I can’t name one “other republican” I’ve ever heard ask “have you ever tried dmt?” Rogan to me seems more like a stoner than anything right wing, what’s the basis for that?

Is there something you’d rather I do while I take a hot steamy shit? No? Then quit your complaining, probable bot, Lemmy it is.

Hell in a sense they are ideologically consistent, the logic is just that whatever Trump says is automatically true lmao. I do love to laugh at their flip flopping too, though. For instance like how before the vaccine dropped they were all “trump’s vaccine is the answer to all life’s problems” and the dems were all “I will never trust a trump vaccine” and now the trumpers are all “I will never trust the vaccine” and the dems are like “the vaccine is the answer to all life’s problems” and the BEST part is that neither side even remembers their previous position from a few months previous. Hell they even supported things they’ve always been against under him, like the bump stock ban and red flag laws, they never would have supported that under anyone else except maybe their last deified leader, Ronald Reagan.

Edit: oh forgot to mention, that bit about “been wronged” is actually textbook cult leader material, and I should know because I am in a cult praise “Bob”. Every cult needs an enemy, see: The Anti Cancer Temple by Tobias Antony Crump. Among other things, they feed off of a victim mentality.

The only user I have trolled is you (admittedly, I am trolling you), this again goes back to the ever famous “Five Assholes” theory.

Sorry I don’t use lemmy as much as you, I guess that makes me inferior huh? Get a job lmao.

Your criticism is worthless, it isn’t constructive and is in essence just you being condeacending and complaining about other’s use of YOUR internet.

I called you a prick like I call you a lemmy user, they are simply true. Got a problem with truth? Report to your heart’s content my dude, freedom of speech is a removed though so I’m not sure if it’ll help ya, maybe, we shall see. I make a community I’m not in look bad? Sure bud whatever helps you sleep.

I don’t care about op or his ban, I’m just laughing at you and the drama you create, most comments in here are about how you are a mega jerk and this is the second post I have seen directly complaining about YOU, I am not the problem here, YOU are. “If you meet five assholes in a day, you were probably the asshole.”

“Removed” lmao how’s that for irony. It said “freedom of speech is a female dog” fwiw.

Edit: he blocked me so here’s my last response to him: You create drama by being a jerk, that is the epicenter of all three threads being discussed rn. Seriously, I’m gonna drop being a jerk back to you for one comment here, you really need to do some serious self reflection on how you communicate with others. I understand it can be difficult, both introspection and change, but really man read through this thread for instance, there isn’t one kind word about you because you treat people like they are lesser than you and nobody appreciates that. You sure don’t like it when I do it to you, so why should they?

Unlike you, I actually agree with your right to be a jerk if you so choose but actions have consequences, in this case that other people won’t like you, will complain about you, or will be mean back. You can’t bully kids on the playground and run crying to mommy when they push back for your entire life, you have to pick either “self reflect and stop your behavior” or “it’s ok for the other kids to do what I do, too.” There is no acceptable middle ground in which you can be a jerk and nobody else can. I reccomend self reflection because through our interactions it seems that you think your condescending behavior is not exactly that, and it might do some good in your life offline as well as on to look at how your interactions work with other people, however there is always that other route as well.

Hope this helps, for real dude, sometimes everyone needs a wake up call, this is yours, don’t miss it.

Now, as much as I would love to keep trolling you in another comment, I have the day off and told my friends I would be free to hang out so I have to go do that instead of fart around on lemmy all day with you. Hope you take some of what I said to heart.

And people are also allowed to

•call you a prick, especially since they’re right.

•be condescending like you are

•be rude back or make posts talking about it.

So it seems we are at an impasse. I will report you for dishing it out but not being able to take it. I didn’t make shit, I found this post, and found it hilarious, so I commented my related information. Hardly “payback action” lmao. Is it “payback action” to report on something someone said? Maybe don’t say it then and then nobody will say you did.

And it sure looks like OP was banned for having the audacity to speak against “Chef Cock” or “Ed Koch” or whatever your name is.

It is a “Payback action” to speak about a true event? What are you the Ministry of truth? Crying because I’m laughing so hard more like it lol you scrub.

I am, is it ok with you that I don’t use every waking second to learn how to use the terminal? Because I’m taking a shit rn and don’t feel like waddling to the computer.

WOAH WOAH WOAH, people are allowed to ask questions in linux if you like it or not now?! This is a stark difference from you being mad I asked a question in linux last week, during which I informed you that other people get to use the internet despite your protests, glad to see I got through to you! Lmao I’m loving this tbh.

Want to switch to linux
Need reccomendations for distro. Old laptop from like '10 (shipped with windows 8, not even 8.1), touchscreen needed so no Mint unfortunately. No linux experience whatsoever beyond using tails and I know what the terminal is but have NO clue how to use it. Need a daily driver for light tasks (just gimp, handbrake, internet, qbittorrent, and libreoffice type stuff, no games), would prefer security and privacy, but idk if Whonix can run on my old machine and with my nonexistent linux exp idk if it is a good one for me yet, may need exp with something else first? Idk, y'all tell me! Was reccomended Fedora, has touch support and supposedly good for the light tasks and will run in my old laptop, but figured I'd ask what y'all think because you guys seem knowledgeable. It is my only computer besides my phone so I can't afford the time to fuck around lol.

Why does it keep saying "Pasted from clipboard?"
Whenever I open lemmur since android 12 it notifies me that lemmur pasted from my clipboard without my express permission. That is sketchy. Idk how I feel about using this with that in mind.
