Yes, but after their place is settled in NATO, they can make some leverage. It’s impossible before joining NATO, but after they’re officially its members it should be less risky to work towards stopping Turkish oppresion of Kurds. I feel optimistic here, I’d wait some time before making conclusions.

Or Sweden and Finland as official NATO members will finally have influence on alliance’s policies + those two countries in NATO may mean less Turkey’s influence in the alliance.

Exactly, together with Russian Wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Georgia and Ukraine. Empires must collapse!

I wish it was XMPP instead of Telegram :)

It has been observed that human beings are constrained by evolutionary strategy (ie, huge brain, prolonged physical and emotional dependence, education beyond adolescence for professional skills, and extended adult learning) to require communal support at all stages of the life cycle. Without support, difficulties accumulate until there seems to be no way forward. The 16 wealthy nations provide communal assistance at every stage, thus facilitating diverse paths forward and protecting individuals and families from despair. The US could solve its health crisis by adopting the best practices of the 16-nation control group.

I think that whole Fediverse gained, not only Mastodon. Besides all shitty things happening, I’m delighted by recent Fediverse gain and it makes me positive for the future of this world.

Strange, because I see way more users and posts since few days.

Not only Mastodon, whole Fediverse has much higher traffic.

Better than nothing, but I’d prefer to ban or limit companies, be it foreign or not, from buying all those homes and flats.

Organic Maps - New promising alternative to Google Maps is now in beta for Android and iOS

You can also register and change stuff yourself in your browser, it's very easy to just add a pizza place for example, just remember to not copy stuff from google maps. > > Another fantastic Android app for helping OSM is StreetComplete. It lets you add more info to OSM by completing quests that involves collecting info.

Do you know any FLOSS news aggregators that don’t use downvote button?
What I know are - Lobsters, but it’s invite-only.
From other types of websites there’s Diaspora. And Mastodon, which I’ve tried recently, however I feel that microblogging is not for me, too much noise.

You understood me perfectly.

They also were not aware of the Reddiquette.

Very surprising.

Wouldn’t you like to know the reason? Wouldn’t this knowledge make discussion worth more?
