Complying with an immoral law is still immoral. I don’t know what would happen if a small fediverse instance would be asked to hand over data. I’d assume they’d be told to pound sand, since most of them are outside the U.S. would be interesting to see it play out

Would be great to see subject lines supported in Mastodon. Anything that helps intercompatibiity is a win-win

Indeed. However, understand that Lemmy has like 100K people or so, while Mastodon is over 9 Million. Much easier to build a topical instance on a larger platform. Lemmy will have it’s time soon.

@atmoicpoet@mastodon.social is creating a hosting platform that supports Lemmy called “Space Host”. Once his platform releases, and it becomes much easier to run a Lemmy instance, we are going to see a lot of people here in the “Lemmyverse”.

The formatting works perfect my instance, v0.17.2. Do you still need to upgrade?

Yes this feature is native in chromium. Glad to see this exists on the firefox side too

One would hope this would lead to some actual punishments on these companies… but the “Gilded Age” (1880s) made a comeback and the companies are running the country again. Oh who’s kidding they never left

That’d actually be really interesting, technologically. I don’t expect it to actually happen, though.

New? I remember learning this in middle school. Maybe it’s just a new study reconfirming the theory

Of course it is. Growing plants will require more energy to produce fuel than just harvesting it directly from the sun. Plants suck when compared to solar panels.

Of course it’s good for business! It shouldn’t really take a study to show that having basic human respect makes people want to be employed at your company.

It would be good to see new member sign ups, for moderation. Being able to see member names and clicking into their post history would be very useful to block spam bots and unwelcome folk without having to have applications.

Please read the article, it doesn’t support “18-20 hours per day”.

The article states:

"It’s not necessarily 40 hours in one office and then 40 hours in another office. That would be virtually impossible and exhausting,” Vicki Salemi, a career expert with Monster. “It sounds more like people for workarounds for two remote jobs, or one remote job and working at a restaurant, at a store on weekends.”

Doing 2 remote jobs, or two jobs on two different parts of the week seems to be what it is. Not people working 16 hours out of home per day.

Are you on the most recent version?

I’m sure it’s just more efficient to just run freight routes, instead of trying also add passengers.

Might be a good time to spin up some more instances, to brace for the impact of the reddit migrants.

In your personal user settings for language, do you have “undetermined” unselected? When I unselected it, I couldn’t see any posts that were made before v0.17/didn’t pick language.

My point was that members should treat admins with basic respect. I wasn’t clear. How I worded it was threatening members to act “in line” otherwise deplatform. What I meant is that admins shouldn’t be accused of being a Nazi, antisemitic, etc. Because they’re just going to shut it down, “deplatforming” everyone.

Paradox of tolerance: if a society is tolerant without limit, its ability to be tolerant is eventually seized or destroyed by the intolerant.
Every community should understand this. I think we do a pretty good job here, but there are a number of other communities that don't.

It’s disgusting that plants are copyrighted.

“got a license to grow those seeds?”

it’s a fucking plant.

No one signs up to get attacked and called a Nazi. It’s really unfortunate that some people still find that acceptable. People should respect their site admins and webmasters, or they’re not going to have a site anymore.

If you believe a country can be humiliated by a balloon… sorry I just don’t buy the narrative that this was some “5d chess plan” by China.

thanks for the ping. I’m kinda in the same boat as Chris below. I never was a Twitter user and I don’t know the first place to start. I did create a reddit: https://old.reddit.com/r/midwestsocial just to claim the name, really. I also experimented with sharing a /c/ community in reddit subs, and that went about as well as expected (banned from one, attacked by right-wing users in another, and ignored in a third). I don’t want to aggressively promote Lemmy stuff like that, otherwise people will see us as spammers.

I dislike them too. I don’t want to get a notification that a video will release in a couple hours, I want to get notified when it’s live.

The only benefit is the real time chat lounge. The few times I’ve watched premieres, it was cool to live-chat with other viewers.

re: the pending subscribe, this is a known issue: https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/2685

You can click and subscribe again to remove “pending”.

Install uBlock Origin, and get a mobile YouTube ad blocker. I use YouTube Vanced, but that isn’t supported anymore. There’s no reason anyone should be viewing ads in 2023

great update, lots of good quality of life features. rip the c/main community, may you live in peace

I haven’t tested it enough, but that does seem to be the case. For both users and communities you can block/unblock on their page or in your user settings page.

Desperate. Google advertising needs to be recognized as the monopoly that it is and dissolved. One company should not have so much control over what you see.

I wouldn’t touch it on the account of it’s crypto stuff.

Completely misleading title. Raising the debt limit would help to avoid a recession and job cuts. If Congress does nothing, the economy would be fucked.
