I saw from a recent post that [downvotes does not propagate](https://beehaw.org/post/244315). That seems counter-intuative to me, how does it actually work?
- Does my downvote affect the visibility on such a posts in my feed when I vote on it on my local instance?
- Does my downvotes on such an post impact the visibility of the post among my fellow lemmy-browsers on a third party instance?
- Will turning off downvotes on an instance give its posts and posters an *artificial boost* when federating compared to instances where posts can get downvotes?
I'm suspecting this can be used to create false consensus and artificially high visibility around posts.

I made a "Share to Lemmy" bookmarklet to easily share content to Lemmy, maybe you want one too? If you don't know what it is, it's a bookmark that runs a small piece of code - In this case, it shares the page you're currently on to Lemmy. If your browser have a bookmark bar, you're always just a click away from a pre-filled share screen on your home instance.
It should work in all desktop browsers.
- Copy and tweak the code, replace `nrsk.no` with your home instance
- Create a new bookmark, the tweaked code goes in the URL field
- Click the bookmark while on a page you want to share

> ## Russians caught with two drones at Storskog
> #### A Russian has been arrested and detained for filming with a drone in Norway. The police in Finnmark are asking for two weeks' detention for the arrested person.
> The police will review large quantities of seized films. The charge may be extended.
> "He was stopped at Storskog on 11 October on his way out of Norway. It was a normal check by the customs and police where they discovered drones in his luggage", says police attorney Anja Mikkelsen Indbjør to NRK.
> This afternoon, the police's request for custody was processed in the Indre- and Østre-Finnmark district court in Vadsø.
> The court will issue its decision on Thursday evening or Friday, reports NRK.
> The Russian citizen is charged with breaching the Sanctions Act and the Sanctions Regulations.
> It came into force after Russia went to war against Ukraine, and states that Russian companies or citizens are not allowed to fly in Norway.
> According to NRK, the charge may be expanded and PST involved in the case.
> _(ColdHotman: PST is Politiets Sikkerhetstjeneste, the Police Security Service, tasked with internal security like anti-terrorism, secret surveilance etc.)_
> #### Will not be released
> The police inform NRK that the man was stopped with two drones and several electronic storage devices.
> The man's defender says that the Russian man will not be released from custody, regardless of whether he is requested to be released or not in the district court.
> "If he is released, the prosecution has requested that he be kept in custody until the Court of Appeal has heard the appeal. Pretrial detention is a priority matter", says defense attorney Jens Bernhard Herstad.
> VG has not been in contact with Herstad on Thursday evening.
> #### More observations
> This autumn there have been several unconfirmed sightings of drones within the safety zone of platforms on the Norwegian continental shelf.
> This has happened both before and after the explosions at Nordstream 1 and 2.
> The Norwegian Defense Forces have increased preparedness around the platforms. VG has previously reported that the police have also deployed their drone sensor system to identify any drones.

I saw that the newly created community "askawoman" was deleted due to being a "troll community", with reason being https://lemmy.ml/post/486254.
I never had the chance to visit lemmy.ml/c/askawoman, but see nothing in the provided link that indicates that it's a troll community.
Could the administration please clarify what made you decide it had to be removed so I can make sure I don't do the same and get my own communities blocked from federation?
Due to the recent ban of a wolfballs.com-user for "Bigotry and racism on his main account on Wolfball." it is requested that Lemmy.ml updates the Code of Conduct to reflect actual moderation. Please consider adding that Lemmy.ml will ban users for comments made with other accounts on other instances.

> His bail conditions include:

> - he can only have one phone

> “To effectively shut down the right to political communication with these conditions, it seems extreme to me,”
> “They are peacefully protesting. Where is the threat to security?”
> Forcing someone’s personal information open for police surveillance is “an extraordinary step to take.”
> “Encryption is everywhere because it’s a fundamental part of keeping modern communications technology secure and functional,” a spokesperson for Electronic Frontiers Australia said.
> “[That includes] essentially any modern device, including laptops, mobile phones, ATMs, TVs, PlayStations, and government websites such as myGov, Medicare, and Centrelink.”
Examples, same PeerTube instance but different parent accounts (https://peertube.co.uk/)

**Search for, sometimes spinning forever, sometimes "No Results":**
As I get more familiar with Lemmy and PeerTube, this turns out to be an artifact of federation.
The "@" obviously designates an account on a different server and when "https://firstname.lastname@example.org" won't resolve, "https://share.tube/c/chrisweredigital" will.
Original title "Bug: Can't subscribe to PeerTube channels with "@" in the name" changed.
