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.
Well done to everyone involved!
How can we follow peertube channels? I can’t seem to see any listed in communities on lemmy.ml
yeah sorry, I only just found out about it.
This video talks about the latest news. It basically talks about a version called mini-d, people are speculating that it is a version for testing manufacturing.
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 still use reddit as it has content lemmy doesn’t.
But yeah I think there is a lot of bots/shills that manipulate the conversation on reddit that doesn’t really happen on lemmy. This will happen on lemmy too if it gets big enough.
Federation is also cool. If lemmy does end up full of bots/shills then someone could make a new instance with some new rules that help to reduce the number of bots (e.g. answer some questions about a post to comment or something).
Yeah, I think I will move to beehaw
