im just wondering why lemmy isnt available without tor? Do ISPs in france block Lemmy?

Why doesn’t the .ml instance with in France without tor?

I’m surprised it’s not ARM based. It’s wild that apple is the only company moving fully forward with ARM on their computers considering the heat benefits and incredible performance of their m series chips

Do votes from instances that aren’t federated with your instance still affect the score on posts you do federate with?
For example, if im on an instance that only federates with instances in an allowlist can someone create an instance of bots to downvote things in the lemmy.ml instance and affect the score of the lemmy.ml posts that users on my instance can see? I’m interested in learning how lemmy prevents vote brigading from instances that might be made with malicious intent

Starlink is another grift by Elon to continue his ponzi practices of pushing some grand future promise to get suckers to invest in his shit instead of investing in public goods. heres a thread on how much of a mess starlink actually is https://twitter.com/rdrimmel/status/1563158073694310401

governments should be forcing companies to build fiber with all the public funding they’ve been spending on corporate bonuses

But it appeared on mastodon like a normal mastodon post without the need to search for it? Ive never seen that before

How did you make this post also appear on mastodon and mastodon replies appear in this thread?

Is there any noticeable benefit to the end user from not having systemd though?

If you can find documentation on how they do it I would appreciate you sharing it so we can show to the lemmy devs to simplify their work if they decide to implement it.

Banchan is an online co-op that makes it easy to accept commissions for art. They have a focus on making it simple and safe with the bonus of acting as an escrow which allows you protect your identity which is a great feature for trans artists not wanting to share their bank info attached to their deadname. This is a pretty good complement to using https://comradery.co for recurring payments. These platforms and the fediverse becoming more and more used really gives me hope for worker owned online and offline spaces.

Im not calling communists fascists I’m saying the people supporting the Z army’s are supporting fascists. Just like id call christian friends who support their priest after theyve been caught raping children as supporting rapists.

weird that you think ukraine should just accept “swift victory” by the fascist Z army but dont think cuba should just accept “swift victory” by the US or Palestine by Israel etc…

none of the countries should accept “swift victory” by those invading and trying to commit genocide against them. You should unequivocally stand against imperialism but you dont because right now the ones invading wave a flag you like.

sounds like a great way to have lemmy overun with spam and fascist propaganda…

no one on any instance is cheering on anything the US does especially not its occupation or invasion of any country…

I think lemmy should be the default because its where the developers are, and its users are pro-anarchist and pro-communist. but it should stop federating with lemmygrad because of the constant admiration for fascists (they dont support fascism in general but they do support fascists as long as they see them as “anti-west”)

What do you think of including a translation feature on lemmy if we can figure out a privacy respecting way to do it?
I think it would be great to be able to click a button on a comment\post and have it translate to your language. I think its possible to build a way to include this in a privacy respecting way (im not a coder so forgive my ignorance) if we use something like the google translate scraper that is used for this privacy respecting google translate frontend https://github.com/thedaviddelta/lingva-translate Making it easier for people to communicate across languages would be pretty sweet for the fediverse.

I want users to be able to block instances from all unless subscribed to.

Did you read the post? Or any of my comments in the thread? They constantly support the Z army and their invasion of ukraine. The current government of Russia ticks every box in the definition of Fascism, outlaws being gay, decriminalized domestic abuse, and funds far-right and christian nationalist fascists around the world like the US did to Latin American countries dozens of times.

Users need an option to block instances
browsing through All has so much pro-fascist posts coming from lemmygrad that it drowns out all the other instances. I'm surprised they're even federated by default but we should have an option to block instances from All if lemmy is deadset on federating with them just because they are fascists with a red and yellow flag... (before the Tankies start posting about how they aren't pro-fascism "Fascism is a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy" which all describe the Z movement in Russia they gleefully support in multiple posts)

Does lemmy get crawled by search engines?
Whenever I want to find useful information on something i search the thing and add "reddit" to the end of my search. I would love to be able to do that with lemmy but currently it seems like nothing on lemmy gets picked up by google.

Stackoverflow is one of the most useful websites online imo and I think it would be great to be able to mark comments as the one that solved your issue and also have the ability to "follow" a post and/or comment thread so you get notifications on updates to a post or comment you didn't post.

Is there a way to block seeing posts in certain communities?
It's very difficult to want to keep coming back to lemmy with so many communities I'm not interested being on my homepage. I want to be able to discover new communities and posts but have the ability to block certain communities I never want to see

Could blocking\hiding communities become a feature?
I want to browse Local\All to discover new content\communities I don't know exist but some communities (like memes) I know I don't want to see so It'd be helpful to be able to "block" them so I don't see them on Local\All. EDIT: I opened an issue on github since that seems to be a more appropriate place to post it. Should I keep this post on lemmy open or delete it? Here's the github issue https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1339
