Apparently, Tusky merged their blacklist for Gab today. So I feel it's time for another part in my little series:
"What if ALL applications were developed like Fedi apps"

I uninstalled tusky a while ago and i dont rly regret it esp now that this happened

fedilab is going to do this too. We only have our browser to turn to it seems

Ah shit
Hopefully niu is safe

Niu would not be safe the masto crowd tried to cancel the admin once already

However I am not (yet) convinced it will ever get that bad. This gab nonsense will probably pass without much fanfare and the app problem will prob be forgotten

Even if it did, someone (me if I have to) will fork what we have at the time and remove that crap from it
@Feuerfuchs @igeljaeger

Wait, what happened with niu admin?

He was dishing out some rational and agreeable opinions and some asshole screenshotted him and cropped out the bottom 2/3 of the post. The remainder, when taken out of context made him sound alt-right when he isn't. That post got around and it was a shitshow. This is why you don't use reddit spacing.

@Feuerfuchs @igeljaeger @sadcatstarry

Ah, so that's why Niu is banned by many instances.
@Feuerfuchs @sjw @sadcatstarry @igeljaeger


Though some instances block it for less exciting reasons - they refuse to block some popular block choices among big masto and by not blocking them they are a liability because if niu users boost a post from a server that is widely blocked that they aren't blocking, then all those other servers in big masto land will see it.
@igeljaeger @sadcatstarry @sjw @Feuerfuchs

Yeah, makes sense. The fact that instance level blocks are so popular at all makes me sad.

you can do instance level blocks on a user basis. Dictatorial admins that block other instances for all their users should be ashamed

I am pretty sure that the admin over your instance blocks other instances too.
Start your own instance then?

Yes, but not on ideological grounds.

> Start your own instance then?
Ah yes, the age-old argument.

It is unacceptable and completely unexcusable that some admins block other instances on ideological grounds. And even worse is suggesting that I should just roll my own and not complain.

At this rate, Twitter is going to be more open than this shitfest of trigger-happy Mastodon admins.

I will keep complaining about stupid admins enforcing stupid rules that fragment the fediverse thanks.

I think it is completely reasonable to block if it really is just an instance for followbots, unlike most SJW shitty Mastodon instances on which admins block literally everything that doesn't perfectly align to their ideology.

lolicon is legal. if you want to browse fedi in public, disable fucking image previews, i dont know how difficult this can possibly be

Welcome to Sweden.

I totally get that, but mutes + reject media does the same thing while still allowing users to connect.

A brand new website for /e/!
Still monolingual and a few things to fix, but it should be OK at least for the next 6 months 😇

Much needed.
Besides the confusion with the names, eelo and /e/, many things were outdated and search for practical aspects was difficult.

Los tres principales ciber riesgos de recargar un coche eléctrico en una ‘electrolinera’:

Free speech extremists argue for the speech of those who perpetrate injustice at the cost the lives of those who fight injustice.

The original intention of freedom of speech was right of citizens to spread political ideas without being persecuted by the state. Nowaydays freedom of speech gets confused with the perceived right to express a private opinion publicly often accompanied by insults, discrimination and threats. Yes you can do that on certain platforms but it has little to do with freedom of speech.

It's like calling the police when your wife or husband is cheating on you.

yeah, I understand that very well, but damned if I can get free speech extremists to even acknowledge this.

I've literally had an argument here today where someone said that free speech was more important than protecting the lives of the people targeted by said speech.

Hence this toot.

I hate to think about the poor suckers who put this thing together...

Let me expound a bit more, I was being dismissive. The really cool thing about the ball of plutonium is all the theory and science and technology behind it, all of this focused in the creation of a precise and powerful object, an object more like a symbol than a thing- a work of art.

Much like ICBMS, with those incredible engines - the focused power of a controlled explosion, an immense exothermic experiment in action. And the ballistics, with a beautiful arc traversing half the globe at high altitude and arriving with such precision at a precalculated location. With its plutonium payload. Surely a work of art. You have to love this achievement to attain it. This is the hand of Dr. Strangelove.

laptops also use electret condenser microphones.

As far as I know a lot of smartphones have only one speaker and are ‘mono’. Perhaps this means they might not be able to capture audio.
you could just switch back and forth very quickly, or leave the speaker as a speaker during playback/conversations. of course you would need firmware that does this, but if theres one thing that shouldnt surprise people much these days, its how insidious technology is when big government wants to spy on citizens.

@rf Здравствуйте, я ZFS. Не хотите ли поговорить о фрагментации?
P.S. Как такого вообще избежать можно? Про рецепт дефрагментации знаю, но он не удобен и в горячем режиме невозможен.

Фрагментация в 2k19.
Я думал, только на винде такое возможно.


да я тоже так думал. Кстати, в интернетах пишут, что на 128к блоках у ZFS, мол, фрагментация не такая уж и большая проблема...
