here’s the problem: Twitter is still relevant, and still a big part of today’s society. we should still pay attention to it. sadly, something is no less important because it’s run by an irrational billionaire; arguably, it’s even more important because of that. we should pay attention

it provides a bit of a different interface which some people might prefer. it’s very Twitter migrant-friendly since it’s made by the same developers as the popular Tweetbot

i mean, the article is about how we in the US focus exclusively on helmets as a silver bullet for bike safety. they’re not as effective as people in the US make them out to be, even though they are effective in some situations.

Would I be supposed to leave it hanging from my bike, exposed to the rain and theft? Or carry it with me into the shops and bars and keep an eye on it?

don’t worry, nobody in the US has solved that problem either. some people leave it on their handlebars, others put it in their backfit, others stow it away in a bag and carry it with them.

oh, come on. do they have to drag “web3” into everything?

That most of the time it’s a karma-grubbing rat race. Posts cater to the lowest common denominator, stir the pot, or both. This is of course made worse by the fact that some subreddits can block people without a certain amount of karma joining, and the algorithm does not give newer posts a fair chance at being seen.

go with Akkoma instead. there are more features and it’s actively maintained, in contrast to Pleroma where development is effectively stalled.

i got transported to Sky: Children of the Light. looks like i’m in paradise now :P

what i currently do is use Pika Backup to create an encrypted backup of my home directory at 8 am local time every day. it excludes my cache, trash, and downloads. the backup is stored on-site on a family member’s Raspberry Pi, but what i would like to do is make an arrangement to back up off-site as well. my mountpoint for my directory on the Raspberry Pi is /backups, and i use that directory only for storing backups. i currently do not make system snapshots, so anything outside my home directory is not backed up. i don’t worry about space since everything is compressed and each incremental backup is a few megabytes at most

he admitted he moved to Romania because it’s easier to get away with sexual assault there. that tells you all you need to know

total equality. children deserve the same rights as adults. parents should guide, not exercise dictatorial control. a parent that doesn’t respect the rights and autonomy of their child does not deserve to be a parent.

the internet, by its very nature, can never truly be regulated. the deep web is huge and out of the reach of the powers that be, and it’s not prohibitively difficult to keep yourself hidden. information is slippery, for better or for worse, and if people think something is worthwhile they will make sure it escapes regulation or censorship. but if you’re talking about the big companies, they can absolutely be regulated, you just have to strongarm them into complying

yeah, i saw that there were a wave of trolls coming from Beehaw, but they seem to have managed the problem. as for the domain i mentioned, i’ve seen a ton of trolling come from there for as long as i can remember, but i’ll concede that maybe i’m not remembering correctly. i fully support defederation with, but that’s beside the point

no, i just keep seeing trolls pop up which all seem to come from that particular domain

does f*psi.** have any worthwhile content/users or are they all trolls?
nazi/scat trolls all seem to come from a certain domain, and i've never seen any actual content from it. so why are we still federated with it?

won’t work. strikes with a definite end date are never effective, since companies can just plan around it. if we’re going to strike effectively, we need to stick it out for months and plan to continue it for years.

ah, i see. specifically, i see that the only religion they use to back up their claims that religion is bad is Christianity. no mention of Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. anywhere. so uh let’s see here…that’s a Texas sharpshooter fallacy (some people who are bad are Christians, therefore Christianity is bad) combined with an induction fallacy (Christianity is bad, therefore all religions are bad)? so much for the logic they claim to live by

explain like i'm 5: what is Reddit atheism?
i may be very naïve, but i genuinely have no idea what Reddit atheism is and how it differs from atheism in general
