What you think is your business, what I think is that whatever arguments you have isn’t something that will hold up to questioning.
I also think that while you suspect bad faith, critisizing someone and then refusing to help them better themselves is a DIRECT act of bad intentions. That doesn’t help at all, it literally only brings more negative feelings to the world.
How do I even know that your criticism is real and you’re not just an Internet stranger, lying to try to bring me down and make me feel bad about myself for your own amusement?
I don’t think this is worth my time either, glad we can come to a common understanding.
I cannot concent to being a lemmy instance user due to my lack of understanding the intricacies of lemmy federation. Should we shut it all down or should I just stop using it?
Have you proven that you are ABLE to consent to things you don’t have a full overview over? Should YOU be able to use Lemmy, maybe you’re being exploited right now?
Terrible times we live in.
My first MP3 player was a cheap Sandisk Sansa E130 in the age of the iPod. One of the best MP3 players I’ve ever had, used AAA batteries, came with a whopping 8GB storage AND SD card support! Great sound and battery life, 5/5 stars.
Edit: I remembered wrong, it came with 512MB storage, the SD card I had was 8GB lmao
Our Kongsberg-group deliveries weapons to a wide range of allies, a lot of them M-72 LAWs sent to Ukraine from is Made In Norway.
The new orders are so big that the state run company had to ask the government for subsidies to increase the manufacturing capacity IIRC.
Nammo is one of the biggest producers of rockets and “specialty” ammunition, aka. military grade infantry ammo from what I’ve gathered.
I think Norway will profit from our surprisingly large arms industry in this situation as well. 😐
I’ve had the same thing happen on both .com and .no TLD’s despite setting the DKIM keys, all mail goes to the spam box. And I’ve had the same setup cause no issues.
In my experience it’s spam filters and the large companies behind them, I’ve even had my home IP blocked as untrustworthy - Until I power-cycled my modem and got a new IP from the local pool. To me it’s the reciever that unjustly blocks the mail, not our TLD’s that are “untrustworthy”.
I know it’s not an answer to the situation, but I don’t think there are any. To me, e-mail is another good idea ruined by big tech.
It’s a different platform, you won’t participate in the monopolization of Chromium as the only browser worth building webpages for.
Google Chromium and install uBlock Origin
AFAIK you’d have to do some tweaking under the hood to achieve the same effect, particularly when it comes to de-coupling Google from Chrome. My impression is that you’d be closer to Brave if you started with Chromium or even Ungoogled-Chromium.
I would try to contact the head devs, @email@example.com or @firstname.lastname@example.org on Matrix, Lemmy have several offical rooms where they hang out.
This reminded me about a joke where the punchline is that mens soap is multipurpose - One can use it to wash body, hair, floors, do the dishes, grease ballbearings, use as hair pomade and salad dressing.
Dr. Bronner’s soap, I’m surprised to say after investigating, is not a joke. https://www.drbronner.com/
If there is an issue with gaming the system, that’s where the solution will be.
I don’t think participating in something percieved as unfair should be the solution to something I percieve as unfair. In such a situation, actively distancing myself would be more aligned with my ethics. On a personal level it’s easy to block other individual users from cetain instances (although a never-ending process), but as an admin action it would impact a lot of users on both instances.
But as I’m unsure about how it works, it might be a non-issue. I respect other instances choice to disable downvotes, and if instance X’s downvotes on posts from such servers are propegated to my instance - Both sides preferences would be achievable.
Why do they happen at some websites, but not others? It’s how they’re administered. Twitter is bad too.
unilaterally banning art on the basis of being AI generated. (…)
I completely understand them. It’s the same thing within the speedrunning community, where it’s sometimes quite hard to distinguish AI records. They’re cheating, simple as.
Art is de facto “human”, since art as a concept is established while computer generated pieces like we’re talking about is the new field. (Speedrunning is “human” because it’s the common consensus, same with mechanical performance enhancers in sport)
I’m not sure if it can even be called art as there is no artistic intent behind it. I think a lot of them are quite beautiful, in the same way I find a lot of nature beautiful. The art is in the eye of the beholder, not in the design or more correctly in both nature and AI - in the evolution.
All of this would have been avoided if AI generated images would be posted in i.e. /r/AIart
If AI art is good enough to be confused with human art and there’s no foolproof method of detecting it, then banning it isn’t reasonably enforceable.
I agree. But same goes for school. If teachers can’t detect AI generated homework and it’s not reasonably enforceable - Should there even be rules against this type of cheating?
Of course there should.
To me, the main issue here is the copyright. All AI works as far as I know are based on existing pieces of art. Machine learning is somewhat copying others work to “educate” themselves, much like I read a book to absorb it’s knowledge.
The main difference is that my creators (thanks, mom and dad. I guess.) didn’t create me with the specific intent of creating the best book ever by making me read a ton of books. If something like that happens, it would be of my own agenda.
An agenda (publicly known) AI’s don’t have for now. They’re programmed to have certain goals, they’re a product.
Reddit is bad. People who accept the status quo over there must also accept the status quo over there - Banned for bogus reasons.
Do all the reddit-complainers think it couldn’t happen to them? There’s always such indignation and surprise.
The debate about AI art is interesting. People getting permanently banned from Reddit for bullshit reasons is routine.
Difficult to diagnose since the issue could be on either side of the wall. I’d guess YouTube’s CDN’s and/or differences in requested formats (WebM/AV1 vs. mp4/h264).
It could be YouTube using a global Content Delivery Network (CDN), which are servers all over the world caching (having a copy) of the videos. They’ve got limited space, and thus only room for the most popular videos. Every video is available in various qualities (360p, 480p, etc.), and I can imagine a scenario where the 360p video is stored “centrally” while the 720p/1080p versions are spread around the difference caches for easy access.
I’ve experienced up to a minute of load-time on some of my older, obscure, never-watched decade old uploads.
Desverre er jeg ikke så god på tysk, kanskje du kan oversette denne til norsk? Jeg er interessert i all federert teknologi og har drevet min egen synapse-server tidligere.
Med den brukermassen de har fått, virker det som at de er på kanten til å gå mainstream. Har også hørt reddit og andre vurderer å implementere det. Lys fremtid for matrix?
You might not care about that, but many people do.
Many people want Lord Journo, the teller of Truf to create an artificial wedge between users? Well then I certainly don’t support them either!
I want to know if someone has fact checkers looking over their shoulder or whether they’re free to pull claims out their ass till the cows come home.
You have no idea how much I’d love that. Unfortunately the last 10 years of media have shown me that this isn’t the case.
but rather one mechanism for establishing a basis for trust.
Yes, it’s disruptive at least - If not destructive to modern society that the trust in media have dropped to what I perceive to be critical levels, particularly in the last decade or two.
It’s because Lemmy allows setting a display name that shows up almost identically to a local name. If it continues to be a problem, my guess is that will be changed.
I think the first step will be to show the username next to the display name, just like on Mastodon. I will continue to assume this lemmy-specific is a non-issue on mastodon.
It’s that journalists are, by their nature, very tied to their reputation
They certainly are.
Having a system for verification is helpful for the general public to know that the person is at least who they say they are is useful.
Depends on what metric you evaluate people’s content by, if you want to be seen as Lord Journo the teller of Truf I don’t care if you work at Washington Post or not. I don’t want it.
Contrast that with a situation that Lemmy has had where a person keeps creating accounts with the display name of one of the admins and posting disgusting porn. I think they finally got bored and went away, but what if that was a larger campaign waged over years? Identity verification provides at least some baseline for trust.
That is literally why Mastodon has a built in verification system based on control of the verifying website. If you can tie your account to i.e. CNN and have a green link, it means you’ve got administrative access to the CNN homepage. Which means you are likely working at CNN or CNN have bigger problems than people pretending to be journalists at CNN.
Is the situation you describe because of the state of Lemmy, or that the Lemmy admins are uniquely targeted for impersonation?
Debian derivatives and GNOME desktops. I find it versatile and plays nice with both light and heavy hardware.
