From what I’ve seen when a community dies, you need to seize the moment and invite those people to come to a new place. Like for example, if r/GME finally gets banned, many would need a new similar place to lurk; after many are aware of it, it’s only a matter of time.

Use Ungoogled Chromium if you’re going to that route:


Are you not following the conversation? What was so hard to understand? This stance of “they’re taking my freedom away” is always ridiculous; as I already stated, allowing that kind of content will hurt the platform in the long run.

It’s an extremely easy decision, either prohibit that content and as a community agree it’s the only kind of stuff nobody wants to see, or blindly allow anything and see lemmy die.

That’s completely wrong. People agree on things we don’t want to see, like how most forums on the internet ban porn, which is not something bad but nobody wants to see that while browsing funny cat videos.

It’s called agreement of civility. This will make the site last longer.

Flawed logic. Saying the dev will ban random things he doesn’t like is wrong since it ignores the fact he’s only disallowing something we’re all agree it’s toxic and will only destroy the site at the long run.

Whoa didn’t know anything Korean related was on lemmy. It’s going to be very convenient now.

KDE has a built-in Image of the Day setting. You can set it up with Bing, NASA, National Geographic, Flickr, Unsplashed, and a few more. Not sure if it can be used with other DEs since it’s part of the settings of the environment.

I created an account not knowing what kind of site it was, and now my email is in someone list…

In my experience, even Ubuntu was hard to use in 2006. The documentation for most distros was meant for people already familiar with technical stuff.

I don’t see how filtering very few words could annoy anyone, none of them are used in normal circumstances (except b***h I guess).

Instead of filtering the words, you could change them for something nice. Like changing “idiot” for “dork”; sounds like it’d make it fun (and of course, still filtering the worst offenders).


Ah! the other day I was thinking I made an account in some reddit alternative years ago but couldn’t remember the name of it. Made like 2 posts until I realized it was just the same kind of politics everywhere.

I use CTemplar, it’s my account for useless websites and it works fine. A big con is that sometimes it feels very slow, not sure if it’s the encryption process taking time or what, but it isn’t snappy.

I’m familiar with all of them, but the search alternatives are mostly new to me. Interesting that no Bing and no Yandex being recommended, while not being privacy-friendly, they could also be added (they have Mega in there so…)

I was actually thinking “should I post a twitter link…”, but since I forgot about Nitter at that moment, I decided to post it. Will change to Nitter next time!

Really fun song, great animation for the music video.

It wasn’t long ago, but when it came out the last thing people thought of it were politics.

They’d make fun of Trump a lot if it was still running, but just because there’s a lot of room to make jokes; Biden not so much.
