This is a well-written and illuminating article, but I’m very skeptical of the author’s suggestion that encouraging younger generations to become politicians would help alleviate the nuclear problem. For instance, the author seems to claim that the main cause of politicians being generally bad is that there aren’t enough people with good qualities trying to be involved in politics. But it seems doubtful that the fault is just that of there not being enough good politicians rather than that political systems generally incentivize bad behavior from politicians, that politicians tend to come from very privileged classes, etc…

I think that’s still a valid reason for banning even if it’s not explicitly in the rules. If wolfballs were federated with lemmy.ml, the user’s main account would certainly be banned from this instance, and setting up another account on lemmy.ml would be seen as ban evasion, causing the new account to also be banned. So it makes no sense to not ban their account just because lemmy.ml blocks wolfballs and thus had no opportunity to ban their main account; in fact it makes negative sense because now we’re letting someone use our instance because their behavior was so unacceptable that we blocked their instance.

The flyer seems to have been posted on Mastodon a few days earlier.

It might be that you’re on a smaller/newer instance, so your instance doesn’t know about many of the communities you’re not subscribed to.

You don’t have to — you can click “create post” at the top of the screen (if you’re using the web client at least) and select the community you want to post in. I agree that it’s pretty unintuitive that the “create a post” button only shows up under a community after you subscribe to that community though.

When asked about what structure he wished Twitter would operate under, Dorsey said that it should be “a protocol” and that Twitter should not be owned by a state or another company.

If it were a protocol, Twitter would operate much like email, which is not controlled by one centralized entity, and people using different email providers are able to communicate with one another.

It would also be possible to write blog entries elsewhere and just post links to them on Lemmy.

Some of the games in !freegames@lemmy.ml are browser games.

Also, some games that I’ve been playing occasionally:

It doesn’t seem that reliable, but under “cross-posted to” sometimes there’s a link to a post corresponding to the original PeerTube video such that comments there in Lemmy will show up under the original PeerTube video. This is because Lemmy can federate with PeerTube.
