Also I do not like having to run Steam because I feel like that defeats the point of using free OS…

Error description: does not make sense

Are you RMS levels of staunch who lives and sleeps by FLOSS principles? If no, Steam is just fine. If you started using Linux for ideological and not functional reasons, maybe Linux is not your thing.


Often it is this vocal minority that brings these platforms as sources in drawing room conversations. Instagram is one week old Reddit, mainstream subreddits are propaganda with recycled news, media outlets cite Reddit occasionally… one well oiled loop machine.

Lemmy if grew on that scale, will bring with itself the toxic userbase that exists on Reddit, and work required to prevent that. If it does not grow, it will stay niche. If it acts like a more quality discussion place than a news aggregator, it can work out like Hacker News. Hacker News exclusively caters to technology categories, nothing more.


You would be surprised how much it caught up in the non US/West EU techie circles, in the last 3-4 years. I was surprised to see a lot of my Instagram friends in India engaging and paying attention to it, even if they did not make a huge chunk of audience percentage.


Hey no need to feel bad, I am not discouraging you from doing awesome work. But I really am trying to help Lemmy get big, and I am trying to assist the admins and fellow users with my experience.

I am sick and tired of the racism, bigotry and bias that exists on corporate platforms with no regard for privacy and/or anonymity.


I will sound a bit different, but this reddit narrative should only be temporary. In the end it is about growth, showing people the way and being a bit more reasonable than Lemmy being just a reddit alternative, when we have many of them. Lemmy is really special compared to others, and most Lemmurs know why.


Something has to be done before Lemmy grows bigger, admins.


It is really getting tough here with a collapsed healthcare system, and the fascist Central government not caring about us citizens.


A suggestion, I would suggest limiting image uploads to 5 MB. Even the utmost largest images can be easily compressed to under that, and be readable and without much artifacts.




I do not think you need to make it more clear what type of socialist you are. I recommend you stay out of politics, honestly. It is not your thing. Of course if you get good with facts and cleanse your mind of disinformation and propaganda eaten up over the years, you can debate well.


I bet at this point he thinks national socialism (Nazism) is also socialism. I have met such people, often they are corrupt anarchists or right libertarians. In this case though I am unsure.


You are not a socialist, you are either a corrupt neolib, or an ultra. nutomic told me I was too arrogant, but my Spidey senses were clearly working.

You are a victim of the Cold War propaganda, that continues to date, humbly speaking. You might want to recalibrate your news media compass https://swprs.org/media-navigator/


Yeah I feel I came off as a bit arrogant, but I am so tired of this propaganda, especially when disinformation is becoming the new normal during this pandemic and in the past decade.

I will try and tone down myself a bit. Thanks.


It suprises me that one of the main creators of Lemmy don’t acknowledge the cultural genocide of Uighurs.

“Bro just trust me bro be part of the cult like me please bro brofist promise!!!1!” Please do not make Lemmy another Reddit.


Propaganda makes you feel comfortable, since facts make you uncomfortable?


Where is the evidence of cultural genocide? Feel free to share it with me from a non CIA/NED source and I will consider it.

Edit: just noted your citation of Atlantic article. Its first 2 paragraphs prove it is a propaganda piece. 1 million detentions is a figure claimed by Adrian Zenz, a Christian evangelist “sent by God on a mission to destroy China”. He also gets funds from CIA. Then there is mention of a ban of Uyghur language, cited Radio Free Asia, a NED outlet.

People like you are so corrupt, disinformed and want to double down on your xenophobia that you will believe any garbage you want to, to justify confirmation bias.

Hope this video cleanses your mind of propaganda https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=8yURIS7S9zg


Some Operation Earnest Voices lurking in this thread lol

That said, China is playing checkers while USA is trying to play chess. It is clear who will win, from here.


It sounds like a Diploma here. Extra courses earn you that, or if you did a course via correspondence or distance education.


This will be so bad for even 2 year old CPUs. Intel and AMD CPUs both will suffer.




Brainstorm time: Why do non-West country users have less participation on discussion forums? (Read text for context)

The USA/West-EU countries make up about 12% of the world’s population, yet have about 80% participation on Reddit. Statistics do not differ much for other sites, as I used to have a decent non-anonymous tech blog years ago, where Google and WordPress offered me similar statistics of 70-75% of the vi…




How should one deal with China criticising CIA/NED funded articles posted on one's community?

Someone did it on r/privatelife, I removed it after notifying users for few hours, showing its annual $300K NED grants on NED website. …


How should admins, mods and users deal with sockpuppet harassers and downvoters?

I assisted admins, caught and got banned over the past week a user noobda, who created accounts noobde, noobdaREBRN and now noobrao. …












Apple is an anti privacy company, but these nutrition label things are nice for marketing. Worth a look…
