There’s a problem in this is that there is an easy trick you can play with this logic whereby anyone you don’t wish to tolerate needs only to be accused of intolerance first.

Rather, the measure for tolerating something or not should not depend on whether it is tolerant or not. Rather it should be based on whether or not it is tolerable, which obviously is not the same thing.




The worst government is the one that uses mass surveillance

What I find convenient about admining a room is that you can easily block users and then automatically delete their message history as well, so since you can undo whatever they do, even if they are able to join and succeed temporarily, in the long term their efforts amount to nothing.

You also have fine-grained control over permissions so you can even make it like IRC or XMPP where rooms with severe moderation problems can be made so the default role when a user joins does not allow them to send messages until you give them voice, so to speak.



It may be necessary for some economies, but otherwise it’s also inevitable. At the very least it must be tolerated



On that note, Putin’s approval rating is said to be very high. I don’t know if it’s accurate though, but Russia certainly does have its right-wing nationalists and people who believe the propaganda.


There are good people from Russia, but Russia can and does make people bad. It’s a country where severe levels of bigotry, racism, homophobia, antisemitism, and other similar things are normalized. I live in the former USSR and people here who are more Russianized develop a superiority complex where they look down on everyone else. I’ve continuously been told by them, that they think the US is an awful country because it’s full of black people and run by gays and Jews. I’ll never get used to it.

I’d have to know the person first before judging them personally, but if you’re asking me to just blindly choose to accept either a Russian or Ugandan immigrant, I’ll choose the Ugandan.


Also I am not Estonian.

Personally I can imagine different cases. There are Russians fleeing who strongly oppose Putin and his war. Even just normal people who would like to get away from sanctions, or can’t toerlate life in a country like Russia in general. I don’t have an issue with such people, but then there are possibly also wealthy/corrupt Russians who are good with Putin but just want to enjoy themselves in Europe while normal Russians suffer under sanctions. I would not want to let those people travel.


Really hard to understand why you compared this to color.


What would you say are the benefits of this? Surely Russians fleeing Russia are not the ones responsible for the war on Ukraine


Iran has announced this many times over the past several years. I don’t know to what extent they have succeeded in using crypto, though. This would be good to cross-post to !iran@lemmy.ml



This is the natural consequence of having a state which monitors its own citizens using tools of mass surveillance, for example though monitoring their Internet and social media activity. It creates a dangerous situation for all individuals, and the states which engage in these kinds of practices deserve our highest condemnation.

This isn’t even the worst possible scenario; governments regularly access this kind of information about users without even a warrant or any form of approval. They are also not only spying on their own citizens, but potentially anyone.


What would a physicist know about life force energy


If you just want to play games you don’t need to worry about the engine or which OS is supposed. All that stuff will certainly run on W11.
