I meant the block button only appears when logged out sorry

block community button only appears when logged out?
for some reason the block community button only appears if im logged in and the hamburger menu on posts in the homepage doesnt open anything

the subject from mastadon can be handled by making it whatever is in the first sentence\paragraph. making anything after a line break become the body of the post

we do need to get advertisers out of our lives but we also need to not alienate the creators that make money from their art.

keeping track of costs and funding should be implemented on mastodon ui Open Coilective founder said she will look into implementing a health bar type element synced with the Open Collective api on their mastodon. wage transparency is something capitalists kept forbidden for a reason. im surprised the hyper capitalist crypto people dont have the balance from hyper communist coders making open source sustainability super easy and cool.

Watermarking factual footage in a way that people can verify metadata would also be an interesting tool for journalism to be able to focus on evidence to improve confidence of facts. Taiwan fights misinformation by having easily available tools people can use to verify information and focus on improving critical thinking of the people. fighting the infodemic and pandemic without takedowns and lockdowns seems to be the best approach. Tools that prevent people getting tricked by disinformation and verifying information for the infoedmic and improving clean air with things like CR boxes and c02 sensors and clean air regulation for the pandemic.

im just wondering why lemmy isnt available without tor? Do ISPs in france block Lemmy?

How do you get banned from Reddit 5 times?

Why doesn’t the .ml instance with in France without tor?

The issue comes from the authoritarians who think their authorianism is great because its done under a flag they like.

i.e. people will completely deny uyghur genocide happening, or the fact the Putin is fascist as fuck and has been running a christian nationalist regime for decades.

Its obvious their beliefs dont come from love of their people like the Black Panthers focused on. Their beliefs comes from hate so anything that makes the countries that are anti-west look bad they will deny or try to spin it and say its actually a good thing.

They essentially run from one oppressor to another instead of understanding all the superpowers are run by people who dont care about the citizens. Nuance and compassion are important but instead they want to believe everything anything remotely anti-west is good and true and anything else is propaganda. Theyre like average redditors who will complain about tiktok being spyware because it’s a company from China and should be deleted while seeing no problem with Google’s spyware OS and apps.

Interesting read thanks for sharing

Could you add sources to the claims please

its insane how much funding the US puts into “national security” and basically ignores climate change and the pandemic that is both killing and disabling its population. Feels like the world is run by a NeoLiberal death cult

Yes the US has been overthrowing democracies and installing fascists into power for decades https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Condor

That doesn’t deny the fact that Putin invaded Ukraine and he shouldn’t have. Ukraine wouldn’t care about joining nato if they weren’t consistently under threat of Putin.

What does your last paragraph have to do with Russia not helping Armenia or taking control of Belarus? Is that just a whataboutism paragraph?

Good reply.

I still think its wrong to continue to look at this as the west vs russia since that ignores the fact that Ukrainians are defending themselves from an invasion that started because Russia wants to absorb countries while putting 100% of the blame on “NATO expansion”.

Look at Belarus and how they’re essentially under Putin’s rule now. Look at how Armenia is being invaded and Putin isn’t defending them even though it was agreed Russia would help them. Putin isn’t doing any of this to protect anyone.

Such an idiotic thing to say especially when thousands of people in the US are dying each week and countless amounts are being disabled with long covid. Didnt him and his wife have covid just a few weeks ago like wtf

Do votes from instances that aren’t federated with your instance still affect the score on posts you do federate with?
For example, if im on an instance that only federates with instances in an allowlist can someone create an instance of bots to downvote things in the lemmy.ml instance and affect the score of the lemmy.ml posts that users on my instance can see? I’m interested in learning how lemmy prevents vote brigading from instances that might be made with malicious intent

The US is and the EU is helping fund Ukraine yes but you acting like Ukrainians are deciding to fight this to protect their country and family is ridiculous. It just seems like you’re desperate to paint Russia as doing something great because you somehow believe they are a Communist country so you want to defend Putin’s imperialistic endeavours.

Russia has been under fascist rule for a long time under Putin but you don’t want to accept that because “west bad”

wow, the import video feature is really convenient!

I hope they use OpenAi’s new open source speech recognition to enable automatic captions to improve accessibility features.

weird you keep framing this as solely the west VS russia as if ukraine has zero say in any of this. The truth is a large majority of the population of Ukraine has volunteered to fight against russia to defend their home and country. Russia could stop the invasion today instead of forcing their men to die for Putin’s imperialist and genocidal dreams…

Do you have a source for that, that number sounds way too high to me?

its sounds way too high to you based on what? hopium? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/aug/25/long-covid-americans-workforce-brookings-report https://www.port.ac.uk/news-events-and-blogs/news/study-finds-long-covid-has-a-significant-impact-on-uk-workforce https://www.barrons.com/articles/long-covid-workplace-disability-51661538939

Monkeypox is not a pandemic and they way it currently is, will not become a pandemic.

it was already declared a “national emergency” by the WHO and the US, there is literally 0 effort being done to prevent it from spreading uncontrollably other than the TINY vaccination efforts. 0 Contract tracing and the media has already given the impression that its a “gay disease” so the straight need not to worry and continue going to clubs, concerts, and restaurants.

What do you mean by immune system getting wrecked?

there are studies (still havent been peer reviewed from what i understand tho) that show covid has lasting effect on lowering our immune system long after you’re testing negative which makes you more susceptible to catching other diseases. Catching multiple diseases with covid is a great way for it to mutate to something worst.

you most likely won’t get as sick if you are exposed to the virus

false. multiple reinfections is widely understood to be the norm and every reinfection increases the risk of long term health effects https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20220707/each-covid-19-reinfection-increases-health-risks

the only alternative to letting it rip now is something like this:

no its not. Taiwan doesn’t have lockdowns, they have common sense contact tracing, high rates of mask usage, theyre increasing ventilation and filtration systems in public spaces. Countries can fund businesses to improve ventilation and filtration and pass laws to enforce paid days of for sick employees so they stop going to work sick. Mask mandates are needed and the shit politicians like Biden etc working while sick and never wearing masks in public anymore is insane.

China has the scary lockdowns you see go viral but those are only in very small occurences cuz they actually do contact tracing, wear masks, and give a shit if theyre population is infected. They have plenty of testing locations with 10-20 minute waits and they test millions of people every day or two and they shut down commerce when needed even if it affects theyre dollars. Shenzhen is on lockdown because of a wave but they will probably open up in a week and go back to living like normal. Truth is most of the population in China live like its pre pandemic time because of how well most locations handled the virus. We only see the fucked up house welding videos and gates being put up in neighborhoods and none of the videos of people living life like normal because “China Bad”. Yes the house welding shit is dystopian but thats not widespread while a population getting disabled and killed by a disease while the leaders gaslight the population to believe nothing wrong is going on is also extremely dystopian.

Starlink is another grift by Elon to continue his ponzi practices of pushing some grand future promise to get suckers to invest in his shit instead of investing in public goods. heres a thread on how much of a mess starlink actually is https://twitter.com/rdrimmel/status/1563158073694310401

governments should be forcing companies to build fiber with all the public funding they’ve been spending on corporate bonuses

lmao this is such a ridiculous article praising “it was wrong to empower scientists to such a degree”… right. lets ignore the scientist and focus on the money. lets ignore the longterm health effects of a disabling disease that has already caused millions of people quit the workforce due to long covid. Yeah lets just keep letting it rip and have our immunity systems get so wrecked that theres now a second pandemic ongoing (monkeypox) and polio is making a comeback in multiple countries it was essentially gone from.

The UK and US will sacrifice its populations to ensure the gears of Capitalism continue while its population suffers all the while the population of the US has no healthcare without their jobs and the UK is doing their best to ruin their public healthcare…

You love writing paragraphs lol.

  1. I never said i was an anarchist or any ideology. why are you so obsessed with attacking teams/cults that aren’t your own. Can you believe in things without supporting other people blindly just because that wave your flag or wear your hat?

  2. Putin isn’t bombing Ukraine because its oppressing his country lmao and its been doing all that fascist shit, assassinating people in other countries + in Russia and stopping all opposition for decades. Its a far right christian nationalist country not the USSR

But it appeared on mastodon like a normal mastodon post without the need to search for it? Ive never seen that before

How did you make this post also appear on mastodon and mastodon replies appear in this thread?

There is literally no political opposition in the country anymore. It is far right regime that has shut down all opposition and created a scenario in which anyone that isn’t remotely in line with exactly what the regime wants now ends up on an assassination list.

not a shred of self awareness was detected

big powerful government tryna impose its will on people who dont accept it as its ruler and are willing to fight for their right to self determination. same shit different air freshener

grrr why do people think a place with its own government, flag, army, and culture is a country grrrr

do you think palestine should be owned by israel too? or that cuba shouldve not fought against the US and just let itself be taken over? no? hmmm wonder why

Is there any noticeable benefit to the end user from not having systemd though?

"This action, like many other direct partisan actions carried out in Russia in recent months, was carried out by the National Republican Army," said Ponomarev, adding that his web portal had made contact with the group's fighters. A manifesto purporting to come from the group was published online on Sunday, which Ponomarev went on to read out in the broadcast. It declares Putin a "usurper of power and war criminal." It says the Russian president "unleashed a fratricidal war between the Slavic peoples and sent Russian soldiers to certain and senseless death." "Poverty and coffins for some, palaces for others — that's the essence of his policy." "We believe that disenfranchised people have the right to rebel against tyrants. Putin will be deposed and destroyed by us!" The document goes on to call on soldiers of the Russian army "to stop shooting at our brothers from other countries — Georgia, Syria and others," and urges "all Russians to join our ranks."

That’s awesome, next give and waive loans to Puerto Rico so they can renationalize their electric grid.

If you can find documentation on how they do it I would appreciate you sharing it so we can show to the lemmy devs to simplify their work if they decide to implement it.

Banchan is an online co-op that makes it easy to accept commissions for art. They have a focus on making it simple and safe with the bonus of acting as an escrow which allows you protect your identity which is a great feature for trans artists not wanting to share their bank info attached to their deadname. This is a pretty good complement to using https://comradery.co for recurring payments. These platforms and the fediverse becoming more and more used really gives me hope for worker owned online and offline spaces.

Im not calling communists fascists I’m saying the people supporting the Z army’s are supporting fascists. Just like id call christian friends who support their priest after theyve been caught raping children as supporting rapists.

Text copied over from a poppinkream post: “The alleged target in this assassination was her father, Alexandr Dugin, a Russian neo-fascist whose writings and ideas are widely available and taught in Russian military academies. He works closely with the Russian government and also wrote the Foundations of Geopolitics. He is an individual that helped shape contemporary Russian foreign policy. Alexander Dugin is a proponent of Neo-Eurasianism, a fascist ideology that believes in building a totalitarian Russian empire to bring about an era of illiberalism. Aleksandr Dugin’s Foundations of Geopolitics http://www.4pt.su/en/content/aleksandr-dugin%E2%80%99s-foundations-geopolitics “By the summer of 2001, Aleksandr Dugin, a neo-fascist ideologue, had managed to approach the center of power in Moscow, having formed close ties with elements in the Presidential Administration, the secret services, the Russian military, and the leadership of the State Duma. …Within the United States itself, there is a need for the Russian special services and their allies “to provoke all forms of instability and separatism within the borders of the United States (it is possible to make use of the political forces of Afro-American racists)” (p. 248). “It is especially important,” Dugin adds, “to introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics…” (p. 367). …As for the former union republics of the USSR situated within Europe, they all (with the single above-noted exception of Estonia) should, in Dugin’s view, be absorbed by Eurasia- Russia.  “Belorussia,” Dugin asserts flatly, “should be seen as a part of Russia…” (p. 377).  In similar fashion, Moldova is seen as a part of what Dugin calls “the Russian South” (p. 343). On the key question of Ukraine, Dugin underlines:  “Ukraine as a state has no geopolitical meaning.  It has no particular cultural import or universal significance, no geographic uniqueness, no ethnic exclusiveness” (p. 377).  “Ukraine as an independent state with certain territorial ambitions,” he warns, “represents an enormous danger for all of Eurasia and, without resolving the Ukrainian problem, it is in general senseless to speak about continental politics” (p. 348).  And he adds that, “[T]he independent existence of Ukraine (especially within its present borders) can make sense only as a ‘sanitary cordon’…” (p. 379).  However, as we have seen, for Dugin all such “sanitary cordons” are inadmissible. in March of 2022 the U.S. Treasury department added the now deceased, Darya Dugina, to the sanctions list for her involvement in Project Lakhta - a sophisticated online Russian disinformation campaign. If anyone wants to know more about Aleksander Dugin, the podcast No Easy Answers did a series on him. Episode 47 entitled “We Need To Talk About Aleksander Dugin,” episode 48 about Dugin’s occult fascism and the hijacking of left anti imperialism, and episode 49 about Dugin, Russian nationalism and Ukraine.” Heres a youtube link but it can also be found in your favorite podcast app https://youtube.com/watch?v=0uz22FFzW7g

we dont need daily reminders about protons “offers”…

weird that you think ukraine should just accept “swift victory” by the fascist Z army but dont think cuba should just accept “swift victory” by the US or Palestine by Israel etc…

none of the countries should accept “swift victory” by those invading and trying to commit genocide against them. You should unequivocally stand against imperialism but you dont because right now the ones invading wave a flag you like.

sounds like a great way to have lemmy overun with spam and fascist propaganda…

What do you think of including a translation feature on lemmy if we can figure out a privacy respecting way to do it?
I think it would be great to be able to click a button on a comment\post and have it translate to your language. I think its possible to build a way to include this in a privacy respecting way (im not a coder so forgive my ignorance) if we use something like the google translate scraper that is used for this privacy respecting google translate frontend https://github.com/thedaviddelta/lingva-translate Making it easier for people to communicate across languages would be pretty sweet for the fediverse.

Users need an option to block instances
browsing through All has so much pro-fascist posts coming from lemmygrad that it drowns out all the other instances. I'm surprised they're even federated by default but we should have an option to block instances from All if lemmy is deadset on federating with them just because they are fascists with a red and yellow flag... (before the Tankies start posting about how they aren't pro-fascism "Fascism is a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy" which all describe the Z movement in Russia they gleefully support in multiple posts)

AppBrowser.com - see what JavaScript commands get injected through an in-app browser on ios
This is a pretty convenient way to check how snoopy the different in-app browser are. Seems like Facebook and TikTok are pretty damn invasive. I hope this makes Apple enforce privacy in the in-app browsers somehow since I'm guessing Facebook and TikTok will just update their code so this can't be checked anymore instead of ensuring their users privacy\security.

Does lemmy get crawled by search engines?
Whenever I want to find useful information on something i search the thing and add "reddit" to the end of my search. I would love to be able to do that with lemmy but currently it seems like nothing on lemmy gets picked up by google.

Nutshell is a really useful way to embed information from other websites in a convenient way. It works sorta like those hover boxes on wikipedia allowing you to learn more about a related subject without leaving the current thing you're reading. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/8acf5e6a-3247-430d-8af2-09bd2bed668e.png) For those of you who don't know, Nicky Case releases really interesting interactive things that are Open Source and CC0. A project you've likely seen in the past was this project called [:the game:](https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/467574) that was extremely popular on Newgrounds back in the day. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/294d4e72-52f6-4ef9-824b-510b5d515da6.png) or this game called [We Become What We Behold](https://ncase.itch.io/wbwwb) ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/f1c395c5-da07-4b2a-8946-3c20883cbbdd.png) heres a link to their projects https://ncase.me/ they're all really thought provoking and made to help you learn about things in an interactive and entertaining way. They also write really well thought out blog posts, here's my favorite post they made that's called [Evolution not Revolution ](https://blog.ncase.me/evolution-not-revolution/ ) and talks about how so many uprising and revolutions that were "successful" led to the current authoritarians being replaced with another set of authoritarians with no progress for the people actually being made.

Stackoverflow is one of the most useful websites online imo and I think it would be great to be able to mark comments as the one that solved your issue and also have the ability to "follow" a post and/or comment thread so you get notifications on updates to a post or comment you didn't post.

They apparently announced they would delete all posts related to homosexuality back in 2018 but backtracked after outrage but I guess they've felt its been enough time that people won't be paying as much attention now =\

Is there a way to block seeing posts in certain communities?
It's very difficult to want to keep coming back to lemmy with so many communities I'm not interested being on my homepage. I want to be able to discover new communities and posts but have the ability to block certain communities I never want to see

Could blocking\hiding communities become a feature?
I want to browse Local\All to discover new content\communities I don't know exist but some communities (like memes) I know I don't want to see so It'd be helpful to be able to "block" them so I don't see them on Local\All. EDIT: I opened an issue on github since that seems to be a more appropriate place to post it. Should I keep this post on lemmy open or delete it? Here's the github issue https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1339

Shouldn’t lemmy automatically create a community the same name as a user on sign up, for future federation with mastodon?
If lemmy created a community the same name as the username when someone signs up. You could follow a lemmy user and then when your on mastodon (once we’re federated with mastodon) you could see their self posts in their community as a mastodon post and vice versa.

The Climate Crisis needs to be presented as a GDP and National Security issue or it will never be taken seriously by our Governments. Like Lead in paint\gas etc was
I realized this community is for new publications of science coverage and current research so I made a community that would be more appropriate for my post https://lemmy.ml/post/44091
