The West seems to do really poorly with the general concept of “ethnic Jews/Muslims/etc” and actual believers of those religions. Those are different things and correlation does not imply causation in this case.


No no, personal freedom is only for pure white people.


When I have time, I will summarize all the ideas in this thread, as well as my own, into a community post and host a vote to see if people want them made into rules.


I don’t really want to mandate emojis because if you’re on a computer, it’s surprisingly annoying to hunt them down and type them (I just search them up and copy paste, which isn’t ideal). They’re also hard to find using the search bar. So, how about ISO country codes? Like [US], [CN], [DE], etc (meaning Unites States, China, Germany respectively) at the start of the title?

You can also do something like [US+CN] or [US][CN] for news about international relations.

NTFS is far inferior to native Linux/Unix filesystems like Ext4 and Btrfs. This will be good for compatibility with external drives, but no one should be using NTFS as part of their Linux system.


Vivaldi just works so wonderful. Once you use it you can’t go back (Check out the in browser mail client). I really wish they were FOSS though.

It doesn’t matter to me how much better Vivaldi works over Firefox or even Base Chromium. TBH, this is just something I’m willing to sacrifice in the name of FLOSS. iPhones and Macs are amazingly user friendly too, but I still avoid them like the plague because of Apple’s absolute hatred of FLOSS and especially Right to Repair.


Vivaldi, Brave, and their stans are getting their pitchforks ready, forgetting that they don’t have to do the hard work of developing an engine because Google already does that for them.

I don’t know about how Vivaldi works, but Brave stans can shut up. Their ad system is a hundred times worse than Mozilla’s.

I mean, I don’t like how they went about this either, but considering the alternative of a 100% Google dominated browser space, and the fact that you can just disable it and the base Firefox code is still open source, it’s not a huge deal.


To be fair, Zuckerberg really does care about his users.

Granted, his real users are his advertising clients.






Also, how the fuck is a single company routing damn near ALL texts for multiple different carriers not a monopoly and anti-competition?

Oh wait, it is, but the capitalist libertarian government doesn’t give a shit.




No, definitely it’s hate against the company (in addition to what you said). CloudFlare has done (and is doing) many dodgy things and are absolutely not trustworthy.



Oh look, the US playing around with coronavirus in the lab! Just what Westerners have been accusing China of doing and thinks is responsible for the pandemic in the first place!


Hell, you don’t even need to go as far as the military for that. The upper class is doing just fine, better than ever in fact, it’s the proletariat that is suffering, as always.


The UK has a still partially classified pipeline for fuel, which was built in secret during WWII for the air force. That particular network is now for both military and civilian use, but I imagine the military still has a separate network that is even more classified.


This probably shouldn’t be your primary storage, but for an easy and reasonably reliable backup, set up LUKS or Veracrypt encryption on a good, brand name flash drive or SD card and store all your passwords and keys/codes there. You can get almost any password manager to give you a CSV or txt file with all the data in your account. Put the drive somewhere safe and out of the way, not plugged in anywhere unless you’re actively accessing it.


What are the benefits privacy wise of having your VPN in the router compared to VPN on the device itself?

I hear a lot of talk in the pfSense community about running a VPN from the pfSense instance, including whether to invest in hardware more suited for that as opposed to just any old SBC or basic computer (namely, whether the processor has hardware encryption). Does it actually provide that much more …
