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:
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:
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.
@email@example.com sorry for the slow reply, yes that sounds great! I will link the chat room in the community description
Well done to everyone involved!
How can we follow peertube channels? I can’t seem to see any listed in communities on lemmy.ml
Reddit is really good for hobby/niche content. Reddit communities have become the largest online communities for quiet a few different interests where previously the largest communities would be independent forums.
It would be great if some forums decided to use Lemmy. I guess there are barriers to this, e.g. user interface changes might not be wanted and it might be difficult to export/import the forum history.
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?
Not using a seatbelt will still increase the chance that you are injured. This will put a burden on society.
Asking your estate to pay is useless if you have no money, insurance claims can reach the millions which most people can not afford. Pedestrians and cyclists aren’t and should not need to be insured.
I have honestly been pretty obsessed with this laptop for a while now. Sadly not available in my country yet.
It does seem like they are succeeding though, they have had so much positive press and they are still getting loads of orders as far as I can tell.
I remember when people were first talking about framework they thought it wouldn’t be able to achieve enough scale to be profitable. Well it looks like they might actually be dooing it.
Incredible what they have done in just a couple of years.
Their other video on the Framework is good too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rkTgPt3M4k
This video ended up crashing Frameworks website because of so many buy orders lol.
I think that Lenovo ThinkPad generally work well with Linux. You can get refurbed ones quiet cheaply on eBay.
There is also system76 which come with Linux pre installed and have (I think mostly) open source hardware.
You can also get a framework laptop (you might have to wait until October/November). This is a fully repairable laptop that aims to also be easily upgradable (10/10 from ifixit). Linux support is generally pretty good and will get better over time (currently very new hardware).
You could also consider upgrading the ram or hardrive of your current laptop if possible. This will cut down on e wate although you might not be able to run Linux.
Yeah, I think I will move to beehaw
