I’m certain that lemmy is being intentionally gamed as a propaganda tool aimed at the left by professional government sources the world over.

The article never says Ukrainian refugees are responsible for this. This could be local scum trying to lay blame on the war refugees. Honestly, If you were a war refugee would you go and do something like this in your flags colors? Sort of on the nose if you ask me.

Nah, i downvoted because the op appears to promote Russian imperialism and whataboutism, and that is a big red flag to me. I’m assuming most of the folks in here agree with the sentiment of this post, but the purpose of it is to pretend that Russian imperialism is fine because America does it? That’s absolute shit.

I’m curious, are you pro-invasion because of these thoughts, or are you trying to make some point that isn’t coming through?

These fools ate too much lead paint when they were babies, I’m sure of it. As an Asian American, it makes me sick to my stomach how much attention and trouble an ass like Andy Ngo makes.

My vpn has given me an IP address that the site has banned! I wonder what precipitated that

Thanks, that’s a nicely detailed response. This country needs some big changes now in regards to all of the above.

Haven’t watched this video, but i did want to ask what folks here think of the concept of property. I believe in it to the degree that the things that are mine are mine and my responsibility. I do have a friend who is a self proclaimed communist who has stolen my car in the past because he didn’t get up in time for a new job and didn’t think i would care, but i do think his actions were influenced by his opinions on property. I had another acquaintance long ago who insisted she be allowed to stay in a roommates bed even though they did not want that (out of town) and claimed that i had an “overly western view on ownership.” I am Asian American, so this nutty white lady saying that made me feel quite disgusted. Anyways, wow, bad old memories. What do any of the communists here think of that? Are those actions and thoughts justified, or was it wrong to steal my car and my friends bed?

What i don’t understand, is why there is no underlying foundation for being a working phone first with the standard features. It feels like that work should be the priority and should have been accomplished long ago. I love ubports but am now rubbing sxmo on the pinephone 3gb. Fun to mess around with, way bigger screen than my old iPhone, but too slow to do anything (no lichess!) and not ready to make or accept even a text. If a solid stack to be a phone with texting and video camera every got developed, the Linux phone could take off, I’d sign up today. But as it stands, we’re still waiting for even the basics to become usable.

Is… this how you buy crack on the internet?

I run a Mac because i spent $300 on Final Cut Pro ten years ago and have been getting free updates ever since. Also, M1 MacBook Air is cpu denoising in blender literally hundreds of times faster than my intel i7 8740h at a fraction of the cost/power consumption. And homebrew. Now, if only proton was built into steam it’d be my one box to rule all the other boxes.

This thread is great, it’s asking a question i didn’t know to ask, and giving answers that are clarifying years of my own mistakes

“ Researchers are now exploring whether the fa’afafine actually follow through on their stated willingness to help family members by giving more money to relatives. ”

This sounds like the article writers and researchers are in cahoots with the relatives to get those sweet super uncle bucks. Good luck on your “research” fellas!

What about my coworker and his partner raising children together, are they not parents, but two gay super uncles? What about me, straight, single, and a super uncle? Am i now indirectly passing my straight genes on to my nieces and nephews?

I think their whole starting premise is a bit strange, but just for fun I can think of a few evolutionary benefits to being gay - less likely to contribute to over population being a big one, while also being able to adopt and care for kids that are in foster care and in need, generally swell taste in fashion contributes to cultural expression, etc.

I always wondered when the right wing Florida men of the country would discover open source social media platforms and attempt to ruin them.

Will they pay them in homophobic brave coins or whatever the heck it is? Or will they just pay themselves on behalf of Jitsi like they do with other folks? :)

You sound foolish and erratic. Your “evidence” is all very weak. Your position is confusing and is hard to tell if you are confused of intentionally trying to spread misinformation.

Install yunoserve and host a mastadon instance? I host my website through wordpress this way. Yunohost let’s you install a bunch of interesting prebuilt things (wordpress, mastadon, email servers, folks sharing, etc) through a gui. As much as i love wandering through a cli, this just makes setting up super fast.

Any good open source speech to text?
I work at a public access tv station and am looking into the services that provide captions, but man are they expensive. I’m wondering if there’s a way i can engineer a box that can do the same. I’m looking at mozilla’s speech to text implementation, which is an interesting thing i never heard of before. Anyone have any experience with such a thing?

Does anyone use their Pinephone as a portable rasPi like device with built in screen, battery, and modems?
I just ordered the new 3gb one and am thinking it’s gonna be a portable media center/game emulator (maybe?) for social times. Maybe even as a portable piHole? Or maybe it can do simple local work to upload to a web server
