  • We’ve been collaborating with Meta on this, because any successful mechanism will need to be actually useful to advertisers, and designing something that Mozilla and Meta are simultaneously happy with is a good indicator we’ve hit the mark.

    Oh, truly? Facebook happy with something that somehow respects people’s privacy and integrity? Perhaps instead it just shows that Mozilla is slipping. Because they have been, and at this rate it seems like they won’t stop. Sad to see.

    There is a toggle to turn it off because some people object to advertising irrespective of the privacy properties, and we support people configuring their browser however they choose.

    That’s not good enough. If this thing needs to be present, the option should be there to toggle on, not off. I don’t opt-in to privacy in my bathroom or bedroom, the privacy is mine by default. I don’t have to announce to the world that I don’t want it peeking in.



  • It’s not about hormones, the problem is the way education is structured today. It doesn’t engage students properly. Sure there’s a bunch of extrinsic motivation, grades, punishment for not performing, etc. but there’s no fostering of intrinsic motivation.

    Without motivation you won’t see results.

    For intrinsic motivation to work, the system needs to meet the students where they’re at. That won’t work with all the standardisation that we’re attempting.

    Sure, a lot of students will manage, some will even thrive, but those that don’t will be left by the wayside.



  • This just reads as “not all men” which while not wrong, also just gives people an easy out. If you have a cake divided in ten pieces, and nine of those pieces are fine, but one is laced with a lethal poison, no one that’s well informed and wishes to live is going to risk eating that cake.

    Your average man might not be an abusive or violent person, but how do you tell the difference? Further, there’s a lot of “good” men out there that are perfectly okay with not checking the behaviour of their friends, allowing toxic behaviour to perpetuate when they are in one of the best positions to put their foot down and say that they’re not okay with it. In so doing, while they personally might not be engaging in it, they’re still facilitating the perpetuation of it.

    Not all men, perhaps, but we as a society, including all men have a repsonsibility to break down this system.

    I’m not arguing that the attempts haven’t been made, I’m saying that the end result, or status quo if you’d prefer, doesn’t align with intent. Intent isn’t irrelevant, but I don’t think it holds as much water as results.

    Like @grue@lemmy.world said, communes have and do exist, and some form of communism has existed throughout history, and likely before it. The states we have today though don’t hold up to scrutiny.

    These are hardly good examples of communism, just like how modern day U.S. is a pretty poor example of capitalism. A capitalistic society shouldn’t prop up failing businesses using money taken from the workers. A failing business should just fail, yet they’ve been “rescued” time and time again, at the detriment of the people who don’t see those funds and keep being exploited for their labour.

    True communism hasn’t ever been implemented, and I wouldn’t look to dictators as examples for how to do it. Dictatorships are incompatible with the fundamental ideas behind communism.




  • And her opponent is a misogynistic chauvinist who mocks people with disabilities, diddles children, cheats on his wives, openly talks about sexually assaulting people, has open ties with Putin and Kim Jong-un, honestly I’d be here all day if I tried to scratch just the surface.

    Yet voters were okay with him over a milquetoast career politician. She was held to a much higher standard than Trump ever was, hell she still is given that she is somehow being blamed for the farce that is Trump. Why don’t people blame him instead?
