Saved you a click:

Yet descend a little deeper and you find a little uplift. It seems that those who buy an eco-cognizant, energy-efficient vehicle have a dirty little secret: Another vehicle that’s about as energy efficient as knitting with a trowel.

In essence, these people’s second car reduces the eco-benefits of their Prius-axis vehicle by 57%.

Is Lemmy big enough for spambots, or is there an actual human being behind this account who I can tell to go step in front of a train?

Oh, okay. Then the response I’m looking for is,


How is this better than using YouTube-dl?

I didn’t even notice there was a slur filter. It seems to me that if you’re not an asshole, it doesn’t affect you one way or the other.

Free software is already political.

Even if the OpenBSD devs were in the wrong, that sort of attitude ensures I want nothing to do with the Palemoon devs.

That still has nothing to do with the comment I left that you replied to. Find somewhere else to soapbox.

So is being anti-communist just as bad as being a communist? How deep does the rabbit hole go?

What are you talking about and what does that have to do with my comment?

I’m not sure if addressing systems are compatible with privacy at all. I don’t see how they could be.

In the countries you speak of, is there no mail service at present? Or is it one of those cases where the towns are small enough that you can just put the person’s name and town on a letter and it will get where it’s going because everyone in the town knows where everyone else lives? I know the latter system is used in some rural areas in Europe. And that doesn’t seem particularly private either, since it relies on all your neighbors knowing exactly who you are and where to find you.

Amazing. I didn’t think my opinion of them could sink lower, and yet…

I have a “Read later” folder in my bookmarks.

Pale Moon’s developers threw a tantrum when OpenBSD devs did, uh, something? that violated their branding policies. That’s not very FOSS of them.

It’s hypothetical, I think, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened a year or two down the line.

Years ago, I would have recommended Firefox as a good alternative option. However, in the last couple of years, the Mozilla Foundation has been speaking more and more favorably of censorship.
