Count of comments is incorrectly increased by editing a comment on a separate instance
[I commented on a lemmy.ml thread from beehaw.org](https://lemmy.ml/comment/397120) . Even though my comment is the only one the count of the comments on lemmy is 8: ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/98621cfe-889d-4274-a336-e00d4a5c5947.png) I believe this is a bug caused by edits to the comment (on beehaw.org) being counted as new comments on lemmy.ml.

The views on lemmygrad are very much outside the general acceptable norms for the English speaking internet.

Even if you agree with their views, you must admit that it is very off putting for most people who come to Lemmy.ml.

I think the purpose of a default instance should be to showcase the software, not to showcase the current community (which is dominated by lemmygrad users right now)…

I think either:

  1. We should have a new default instance.
  2. Have no default instance.
  3. Lemmy.ml should stop federating with lemmygrad.

Personally I have been using and promoting Lemmy less because I find the lemmygrad content off putting. I feel a similar way about this content as I did about place like r/thedonald in 2016.

This community exists as a sort of sister community/copycat community to the r/fuckcars subreddit.

I think both communities exist for the following reasons:

  • to raise awareness around the dangers, inefficiencies and injustice that can come from car dependence.
  • to discuss and promote alternative transport methods

I’m very uncertain about what content is allowed here and I think if the sidebar could specify a bit more that’d be nice.

yeah the sidebar could be a bit more clear. I will update it later today.

  • Find people on your course that can help you and that you can help. Teaching something you know to classmates helps you learn. There is a saying “one teach, two learn” and it is true.
  • Try to review the content of a lecture before attending the lecture. Even if it is a fast 5 minute skim of the material it will help you
  • Try to get an overview of the course at the start, again a quick skim might take an hour or so, but the content will be more familiar when you get around to it.
  • For maths and science Khan academy is really useful.
  • There is a short course on Coursera called ‘Learning how to learn’ that includes some of the above points, it is worth checking out.

@meloo@lemmy.perthchat.org sorry for the slow reply, yes that sounds great! I will link the chat room in the community description

r/sysadmin - Microsoft introducing ways to detect people “leaving” the company, “sabotage”, “improper gifts”, and more! (unverified)
I am not sure if the content of the post is true but the product it talks about does exist: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/communication-compliance?view=o365-worldwide

Well done to everyone involved!

How can we follow peertube channels? I can’t seem to see any listed in communities on lemmy.ml

I think Uniswap is a layer 2 on to of Eth, so as long as ETH continues to sue proof of work, it is very unsustainable.

You really need to use common sense and do your own research to be sure if they are a scam or not. Ask questions like:

  • does it solve a problem other than making the holders money?
  • is it distributed fairly?
  • who controls distribution/txn confirmation?

If no problem is solved, or if a small number of entities are in control, then it is a scam.

From what I know Nano is not a scam (~95% of coins were distributed for free through CAPTCHAS and there is no inflation (or fees)).

Reddit is really good for hobby/niche content. Reddit communities have become the largest online communities for quiet a few different interests where previously the largest communities would be independent forums.

It would be great if some forums decided to use Lemmy. I guess there are barriers to this, e.g. user interface changes might not be wanted and it might be difficult to export/import the forum history.

Reasons for this could be:

  1. low average number of passenegers
  2. buses have old inefficient engines because of underfunding/underinvestment

This one is really gave me a proper laugh

I am getting tired of this meme. It is basically complaint about people talking about world events unless they are “experts”.

We should look to experts for our sources of information but it is a bit shirt to mock normal people for talking about the world around them imo

40 percent of Russians do not support the official recognition of the Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” by the Russian authorities, while 45 percent of Russians do. While some signs of “rallying around the flag” are inevitable, it is remarkable that despite complete control over major media sources and a dramatic outpouring of propagandistic demagoguery on TV, the Kremlin is unable to foment enthusiasm for war.

Perhaps they have grown wiser to war propaganda after the retaliatory sanctions for the annexation of Crimea?

Any moment now we will get people jumping in the comments section saying this: buT It’s jUsTiafied BecUAse NatO

If you are defending invasions like this you are just a propagandist

Ukraine will have strong western support so it won’t be as easy as Chechnya. Although Putin might decide to annex anyway.

A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm —“in satire, irony is militant”, according to literary critic Northrop Frye—[2] but parody, burlesque, exaggeration,[3] juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing.

I think seahorse was being ironic/sarcastic

No sorry. But Ethereum will transition to proof of stake in June/July, we might get graphics cards then.

Web3 was being used as a buzzword in 2017/2018 by cryptocurrency projects. I can’t believe it has actually caught on.

I propose we start using web4 as a buzzword for the fediverse

Found more on twitter:

Larry Tesler, inventor of the cut, copy, and paste commands, dies at 74

I like to use Lemmy though a browser on mobile, the interface is good (especially compared to reddit) but I think the buttons could be changed a bit to make it better.

I think it might improve the mobile UI to have all buttons at the bottom (sort of like in lemmur):

Buttons that I think would be useful at the bottom:

  • Home (like in lemmur)
  • Communities (like in lemmur)
  • Search (like in lemmur)
  • Profile (like in lemmur)
  • Notifications
  • Create post
  • Sort

Are you going to wait until all hexbear features have been added to Lemmy before moving or do you think you will move over before that point? Any idea how long this will take?

Thanks for the contributions by the way!

The only way to stop an illness with a gun is a doctor with a gun

Rather than acknowledging that climate change is caused by emissions which are largely done through energy production, transport in supply chains and industrial activities, i.e. systemic elements, he goes on to complain about how individuals, who have nothing to do with energy production or transport, are hypocrites.

Almost everyone in the countries surveyd use energy and transport. Infact the countries surveyd are the largest GHG emitters (historically and per capita). Why do you think industrial emissions happen? It’s because individuals buy what companies sell.

If people (particularly in the countries surveyd):

  1. continue to consume on this scale
  2. refuse to support regulations that will force companies to emmit less

then GHG emissions (and environmental damage in general) will continue to remain high.

The solution to global warming is to wind down the fossil fuel industry to zero, which should be easy enough to understand. This is an act that will have a significant impact everywhere and we should focus on managing that change.

Ok, how are you going to do that without reducing consumption? We have been investing in green energy for decades and fossil fuel consumption continues to increase every single year:

I don’t like the framing that it is ‘industry’ that is causing GHG emissions because it lets the actual individuals who are taking advantage of the system of the hook. These individuals are the shareholders who profit, but they are also the consumers who get ultra cheap goods because they don’t give a fuck where it came from.

I would prefer not to change the title because:

  1. It does include comments from WHO that are not specific to the US:

    The World Health Organization on Thursday pushed back against the consistent chatter that the ultra-transmissible omicron coronavirus is “mild,” noting that the variant is causing a “tsunami of cases” that is “overwhelming health systems around the world.”

  2. The post title is the same as the article title.

NewPipe can play youtube and soundcloud and bandcamp songs in the background.

It looks like r/roms has also decided to use Lemmy as a fallback

Fairphone seems to be the best repairable phone. Although my current phone still has a few years in it.

Framework seems to be the best repairable laptop. I have ordered one and it should come in February ☺️

This is great news =).

I find the megathread on reddit really useful, are you involved in making it? Would it be possible for it to be posted/pinned here whenever it is updated?

The present mods responsibility is to serve the interests of the present subscribers.

I disagree, mods in general are dooing free labour for the benefit of the community.

The mod of r/piracy (one of the best resources for pirated content I have found) thinks having a backup on Lemmy would help the community. So maybe we should support this instead of saying it’s not their responsibility lol

Because if they are directing the existing r/piracy to here as a backup they should maintain control.

The most success I ever had was counting calories with the myfitnesspal app.
