Thats great news! It’s sad that it’s even a worry but I’m glad this got thrown out

I still don’t understand how they havent impemented Cash App payments directly in Twitter so people can easily send others money. Would be great for non profits and activists and they can setup a special donation tweet that people can donate to for specific events/goals that shows transparently how much hs been donated


Very good news, although i wish it applied to ICE as well. I also hope this is just a first step and congress passes a law to abolish pricate prisons


They also have a really really interesting online voting system that does really well to prevent the potential abuses. I’m interested in seeing how their system with online voting and E-Estonia in general scales to larger and more politically targeted countries. I wonder if they have setup any disinformation prevention systems like Taiwan is doing


Netflix has been doing pretty great with their anime so im excited. I wish they stopped adapting anime to live action movies and instead just madr more anime


I like lemmios and nezumi


Thats great! Thanks for all the hard work y’all are putting into this!


Youtube-dl was reinstated iirc. It was taken down because the example they used was to download copyrighted music. (Which I don’t think should matter but you know how shit is for now)


ah, thanks that makes sense. definitely important to learn from the mistakes of the past. What does a neutral stance towards information look like?


That’s like some hundred billionaires from upwards of 2500 members of Congress. It has people from a wide variety of backgrounds. what? What are some tangible ways in which China hampers freedom of speech in any exceptional way? oh come on. The doctor that was trying to alert people of coronavirus? almost every prominent hong kong protestor including a huge sweep today. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/06/dozens-of-hong-kong-pro-democracy-figures-arrested-in-sweeping-crackdown more than a million uyghur muslims in concentration camps?

how am i playing both sides?


New president seems to be a decent person so far but I don’t have much hope. This is a good step. Unrelated but i hope he legalizes cannabis and decriminalizes drugs next so the DR can make some money and care for its people. Also they gotta pass some anti discrimination laws the last administration did some truly fucked up things to many dark skinned Dominicans and Haitians


You mention in the comments about information about China being western propaganda when it comes to their authoritarianism. Are there specific things your referring to when you say that? The people ik chinas government consists of over a hundred billionaires and hundreds of 100 millionaires, they have zero freedom of speech, no free press, a person in power indefinitely, and concentration camps with over a million people because of their religion.

I find it frustrating when leftists teaching ideas about communism etc try and paint China etc as if they’re just misrepresented by the media and try to excuse the things they do and either use whataboutism or call things fake news. We dont need to justify/minimize the pain of millions of people living in other places to make capitalism/america look bad. Capitalism/america does a good enough job to make itself look bad without people trying to pretend the alternatives havent been used to also inflict pain, slavery, etc

Lack of apps and lack of need for most people. I think instances that fill a niche and provide a service that is better than the non federated service will help.


Could blocking\hiding communities become a feature?

I want to browse Local\All to discover new content\communities I don’t know exist but some communities (like memes) I know I don’t want to see so It’d be helpful to be able to “block” them so I don’t see them on Local\All. …


Shouldn’t lemmy automatically create a community the same name as a user on sign up, for future federation with mastodon?

If lemmy created a community the same name as the username when someone signs up. You could follow a lemmy user and then when your on mastodon (once we’re federated with mastodon) you could see their self posts in their community as a mastodon post and vice versa…


The Climate Crisis needs to be presented as a GDP and National Security issue or it will never be taken seriously by our Governments. Like Lead in paint\gas was

Lead based paint and lead in gas was a huge health issue causing IQ to drop etc. This issue was taken very seriously when it was presented as something the will cause massive GDP loss. Our governments care about money first and foremost. I think if Extinction Rebellion etc started getting analysis p…


What is the top of the Hot section based on? Recent comments? upvote number - days since posted?

Forgive my ignorance for not understanding if the algorithm in the Doc applies to the Hot section for new posts as well (also for not really understanding the algorithm)…
