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.

Yes, running is more dangerous thank walking (partly because it is faster)


Yes, they go faster so there is more risk of serious injury/death.

Also a benefit of cycling in comparison is that you get excersise


I like the idea that they are more fuel efficient than cars, but they are a dangerous form of transport especially when sharing roads with cars (but I think they would probably still be dangerous even without cars).


@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



  • Climate change
  • Being inside a car in traffic.
  • Being outside a car in traffic and breathing the fumes.

There are lots of economic reasons to be anti-car but I think those are the ones that started it for me.



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)).



Reasons for this could be:

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

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






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




Layoffs hurt the company long term when the company should hope a boycott is short term.




I wonder if this is the chip that the valve handheld will use.
