I totally understand what you’re saying, and as far as the reaction goes, are you referring to the article, or my comment?

The scope of this article and the reaction has everything to do with them blowing the protections for user generated content. My comment is based on the notion that there isn’t a reaction big enough until they get it through their heads that they absolutely have to rework the legislation to make the protections clear for users.

That said, they’re also walking fine lines of distinction on things - I can appreciate them regulating large business and doing what they’re supposed to do, however:

  • You’ll note that they’re including “podcasts” as “professional” productions. That’s dicey to define it that way, considering some will be, some won’t. Will they clarify that they’re only going to regulate commercial entities?

  • Your comments regarding the CRTC are duly noted as to their stated purpose. However, they’ve been nothing short of a massive failure for Canadians, allowing for the mess of unified “media” companies, blocking legitimate, 100% Canadian access to our airwaves, allowing theft of content from distributors, etc. The list goes on and on and aside from enforcing “Cancon” on the few radio & TV broadcasters we have, they’ve done a great job of completely messing things up for years. I would agree with the stated purpose of the CRTC, but what we’re provided has been an abomination.

Somebody please tell me if anyone involved in writing this thing has any understanding of how any online services work?..

Thanks… it looks like they’re plugging away at it.

I forgot about this - did this bill go anywhere?

Updated lemmy.ca again today

We’re on the new release 0.11.0 now - not sure why the frontend is showing “BE: unknown version”, but we’ll look in to that…

Sounds like you may be looking for one of those larger packages like libretime or open broadcaster. For some reason I didn’t get a notification for your post, so apologies for the delay.

Have you punched Microsoft in the face today?

Why were you downvoted? Come on, people, if you’ve got something to say, say it!

You know, maybe people shouldn’t have jobs where their duty is to always change what isn’t broken.

“A new look” isn’t what Firefox needs.

Libretime? Open broadcaster? Simple stream to an icecast server?

I think there’s a few awesome options these days depending on your needs.

I’ve been using borg for awhile and it seems to work fine. Haven’t missed a beat when I’ve had to try and restore something.

I’ve seen a few notes around from people who really dislike it, though it doesn’t seem apparent why. Maybe it’s slow, but for my needs, I don’t care.

You obviously haven’t been paying attention to the militarization of your police forces.

Are you seriously suggesting that one should be as armed as the police? Are you serious?

Only in America…

I think it’s telling that when talking about videos that contain hate speech, the only item of importance was whether or not they were able to be monetized. Youtube’s unwillingness to police itself needs to be dealt with better.

The rest of the article is pretty gross, too, to be sure. It’s been clear for some time now that trying to moderate large platforms with AI is pretty useless.

Unless you’re the RIAA or MPAA, I guess. Then it’s totally sweet and awesome.

Here’s a thing to get out and do/see/enjoy (or stay home and do, too)…

They seriously called themselves Sounix backwards?



Don’t worry, things will get awesome once Rogers has bought em out.


“I have the right”? lol… here’s the thing:

You’re on people’s private systems, you have no more rights than what are granted in that space.

You are not given the right to spread misinformation in the space that I manage, nor does it appear you are given that right on lemmy.ml.

And as Travis kindly pointed out, dissenting opinion isn’t getting things removed. I’ve even left your hot air alone here.

Stop repeating yourself, I can see the nonsense you’ve already been trying to splatter elsewhere and you need to go get educated.

  1. Shut up about the H-Index. It’s bogus, unless you think that this shady asshole is somehow a higher scientific rank than Einstein. https://theconversation.com/why-the-h-index-is-a-bogus-measure-of-academic-impact-141684

  2. Like most conspiracy-theorists, you’ve grasped on to a couple of completely meaningless talking points and then point the finger at “THE MEDIA” when people start calling out your bullshit.

Just stop. It’s not the media, it’s you. You want to know why you’ve had comments removed?

That’s not a credible source. If he were credible, why is he being disciplined for ethics violations?

I’m sorry, you need to go learn a bit about the IP stack and really try hard to not spread misinformation. That was the whole point of why I replied - you’re making claims you just can’t back up with any kind of reasonable argument.

You’re being tracked while on IPv4 as it is, so please, stop with any claims that IPvWhatever is going to be any better or worse for you in this regard.

Kid, you’re stepping all over your own points. Your own words were also “…the use of NAT and NAPT which provided a certain amount of privacy.”

You missed the point about privacy extensions in IPv6.

Either way, you’ve made no point that suggests IPv6 is any better or worse than IPv4 in regards to privacy. It’s also not the point or function of IPv4 or IPv6. Your original comment about IPv6 being a privacy nightmare has no basis in reality.

I’ve found the same with butter over the past few years. I hope this gets backed up by other sources, but if true, it sounds like high time for better regulation of this industry - if they can’t make profit from selling a pound of butter for $5 (which most seem to be priced higher than that now), t…

Hi all, …


Stupid churches fined for being stupid.

Why do some people insist on being so difficult about temporary rules? The entitlement is appalling…

Lemmy & small VPSes

Hi all! …


Something odd with the Lemmy rate limiting.

I have all the proxy_set_header directives in nginx, including the new ones just added in yesterday or the day before.

Something lighthearted to kick things off.

The Tyee asked readers to submit art depicting life today. This is the resulting gallery…

Hello all, and welcome! …
