That makes a lot more sense actually. I wonder what attracted that user to your instance tho

This should help keep the fedivangelism discord+matrix communities informed about the lemmy community’s developments and vice-versa

They could just join an instance haha

That site doesn’t do a good job of making the case that it’s intended to be a Nazi icon, and I don’t see it doing much in the way of assisting the Third Reicht or however you spell it

That’s a good point. If you really, really did not want to apply to the job, and furthermore didn’t think it was something you should do, then yes, you should have held a boundary buuuuuuut that is far easier said than done lol

WDYM? Like the spammers brigading and trolling the communities this month?

I think the only solution really is probably to self host. Or, for multiple instances to have duplicate instances and to cross post on all the communities. You already see this happening, especially with COVID communities across Lemmy and Lotide, but also with news and tech communities I think

I don’t have the hosting hardware necessary BTW, am not willing to do anything other than self host, and when I do get self hosting equipment I have other plans for it (albeit I will use Lord willing)

How come Lotide mods don’t sticky any posts in their communities?
I'm also not seeing many Lemmy mods sticky posts, especially from wolfballs

Use, it’s the best self-hosted Discord alternative that I’ve seen

What does it encrypt tho?

What does KNOX actually do? Isn’t it just a marketing gimmick?

This is fascinating. Personally I’ve actually struggled with enforcing boundaries, but those that are my own rather than those of others. I similarly was often pressured by parents and was even disallowed from having boundaries at all, but that was only one-sided, so I got used to respecting others’ boundaries and ignoring my own.

I’ve communicated this to my roommate, and he’s gotten better at making sure that he’s not crossing my boundaries (or boundaries I want to have but suck at enforcing lol) just by asking multiple times if it’s okay to keep going with something (especially with talking to me while I’m doing something else), and at the end saying “you can say no”. I’ve found that incredibly helpful and validating, and perhaps if you do the same, it could have a similar effect.

Wait baraag is for gore? I always thought it was for porn, but then I never browse its content.

Just ran into some a day or two several years ago and was like “oops!” Spiritual Successor “fedi ninja” Pops Up, Touts “Development” Status
Looks like is back, in a different form!

The Chainsmokers Announce The Release Date of HIGH
"Are you getting High on Friday?"

For some reason Lotide (which I use) still keeps up all the banned content and it’s still visible on my end and I can still comment. I hope that’s something that gets fixed on Lotide’s end, as nobody will ever end up seeing my comments since the posts are deleted lol

Nice! It’s like Insta’s Highlights, but cooler!

PlayStation Call of Duty fans won’t have to jump to Xbox just yet

I ended up asking one of my ADHD IRL friends about the indecision paralysis issue, he said he’d follow up with me (we’re busy college students lol)

I may circle back when I hear from him and tried out what he’s suggested!

Fair warning, does do a fair bit of censorship as they don’t want to harbor unsavory content.

I’m not a fan of bad content but I’d rather confront it or block it myself than have it hidden from me, which is why I’m on instead of doesn’t censor much either but their userbase is prety alt-right and boring (little more than but right-wing boomer memes, and some antivaxx links)

It’s very hard. Typically it’s because I’m understimulated, or I’m struggling with indecision paralysis. I can only combat the former, with caffeine, but the latter I sadly have no idea how to conquer.

Thanks for posting this question! I rarely see questions about ADHD on the Fediverse and they’re refreshing when I find them here.

How many admins do y’all have? I’d be lying if I said I agreed with y’all’s moderation stances, but I’m surprised at how slow action to some of the posts, users, and communities is

Well, a part of me wishes I was born in the 30s, as I love OTR and 50s and 60s shows and movies. But I’m black and race relations wasn’t great back then (it was getting better tho)

Another part of me wishes I was born in the 90s. My parents were super restrictive and I wish I could have been a part of the innovative tech culture as it was happening and experience everything as possible

I used to talk to Nazis a lot, back when I was on Gab, and you know, everything about Nazism that could be redeemed goes against their core beliefs.

For example, I would like it if Nazis didn’t view themselves and greater than those who have other ethnicities, and also weren’t against race-mixing. Furthermore, I wish they had less of an aversion to having international allies.

Also most Nazis are nationalist, which I’m not on board with (in large part because I am Christian, but in small part because I’m in favor of small government and nationalism and small-government thinking don’t really intersect), but at least I can understand and borderline respect to some extent.

I would love to see a good comparison between all the different licenses

This has to be a joke

Isn’t like Walmart keeping a cache to sell exclusively in person? I feel like that’d be your best bet

I actually haven’t. I think the true reason is, there usually isn’t enough toilet paper lying around.

I’m not lost, just mentioning that making your software partisan (either by design or reputation) will limit success and utility of the software in a way that’s unnecessarily harmful

That sort of attitude being mainstream is why Lemmy is probably the most divisive piece of Fediverse software out right now.

The blocklist only removed some slurs that were racist or nasty AF.

I literally got censored once for trying to post an article about Ted Cruz being called the b word, because it had the b word in the title.

There is more than one?

Actually not that I know of, just, but I assume there are far more lemmy instances that I just forgot about

What is reactionary?

Making free-speech instances in response to the main instance

And why is it bad?

A couple reasons, firstly, it solidifies Lemmy’s reputation as a platform for leftists, and seconds, it unnecessarily divides and isolates right wing users and instances from most Lemmy users who abide by the mainstream Lemmy perspective.

I think it’s just that the flagship instance yours is not only political, but run by the devs as well. Plus the hard coded word blacklist and whatnot lol

Right wing and free speech instances are merely reactionary since the flagship platform is political when it should be the other way around

When I said this:

one of the core pillars of is strong moderation and censorship

I was merely referring to the fact that the instance likes to censor, is run by the Lemmy devs AFAIK, and furthermore from the beginning it included a hardcoded word blacklist (not sure if it still has that feature)

This looks like something for lol

But it’s not too surprising since one of the core pillars of is strong moderation and censorship lol

It’s my main reason for not using Lemmy and opting for Lotide instead

National Socialism? LOL

Yes you’d probably get nationalism from big government lefties, but not from anarcho-leftists. Support for authoritarianism lends itself to nationalism because it requires a certain level of trust in the government.
