Do our moderators have the integrity of overcooked pasta or is it more like warm jello?
  • then DISCUSS it. That’s what we do here.

    Just like I told you on your other account, I don't believe you understand how communities work.

    Each community has rules, you have to follow those rules, otherwise your posts or comments will be removed.

    Locking this post since I do not believe it is genuine, and is the same thing you did on your other account.

  • Do our moderators have the integrity of overcooked pasta or is it more like warm jello?
  • If they would add the ability to limit comments based on something like account age, or upvotes etc, it would be awesome.

    Unfortunately the Lemmy dev team hasn't made that option quite yet, would be an awesome feature to request though!

    This user however, reminds me of another user that was posting questions that they felt were revolutionary, but were not legitimate questions. Looking through their comments and posts, I believe this is the same user under another account.

    The post that was removed (by me) that they are upset about is:

    1000 years from now physics is forgotten and all that remains is the legend of two hobbits, Charm and Spin, and their quest for the Higgyboson. At this point, is physics true?

  • Strengthening Community Bonds: [email protected]

    Greetings everyone,

    We wanted to take a moment and let everyone know about the [email protected] community on Lemmy.World which hasn't gained much traction. Additionally, we've noticed occasional complaints about Business-related news being posted in the Technology community. To address this, we want to encourage our community members to engage with the Business community.

    While we'll still permit Technology-related business news here, unless it becomes overly repetitive, we kindly ask that you consider cross-posting such content to the Business community. This will help foster a more focused discussion environment in both communities.

    We've interacted with the mod team of the Business community, and they seem like a dedicated and welcoming group, much like the rest of us here on Lemmy. If you're interested, we encourage you to check out their community and show them some support!

    Let's continue to build a thriving and inclusive ecosystem across all our communities on Lemmy.World!

    US sues Apple for illegal monopoly over smartphones
  • Hey no worries, appreciate it!

  • US sues Apple for illegal monopoly over smartphones
  • Yeah, I saw some reports from both accounts yesterday that made it obvious that's their backup account. Also, not the first time they've done this, and they also spam report comments when they get angry.

  • Please read and help
  • Hey OP, how can I help? We are here for you

  • A post may receive a hundred replies and host a fat and exciting conversation tree, but if one moderator doesn't like it then it may be locked or deleted. Is that immoral?
  • I didn't avoid your point, I actually answered it: rules are rules and exist for a reason, if you break a communities rules they will remove your post or comment.

    To put it more simply for you, no, it is not immoral - especially when you look at the context of your question.

  • A post may receive a hundred replies and host a fat and exciting conversation tree, but if one moderator doesn't like it then it may be locked or deleted. Is that immoral?
  • Just to be transparent, I'm the mod who removed your posts.

    We get a lot of rule breaking posts between the multiple communities I moderate, some of them get upvoted heavily and still get removed.

    For example, someone posted a scientific post that had nothing to do with technology in /c/[email protected], it had a decent amount of upvotes and comments. It was still removed for rule 2 of that community, as it was off topic for that community and there are ones that exists for that content.

    Sorry that it upset you, but if I could give you advise: just follow the community rules and you won't have these issues

  • Elon Musk’s legal case against OpenAI is hilariously bad
  • Heyo! Yes I can work on that, currently have a lot of work projects going on, but once things settle down.

  • how do I deal with what to me is a thin skinned and gossip coworker?
  • Heyo! Please reformat your title to follow rule #1


  • I wish there were more articles about tech not tech biz
  • Please stop reporting this as "not tech related, rule 2", we welcome the feedback.

    Our stance has been, if it's in a gray area of "tech" such as tech business related, and users upvote it: that must be what the majority wants.

    We will be discussing this more, as it seems some people want strictly tech related content and none of the gray area content.

  • Parents told to delete social media apps to prevent kids from seeing Hamas atrocities — Facebook, X, TikTok and other social media services have been filled with graphic imagery
  • Just want to point you to rule 3, that is the reason for removing the other comments.

    Thanks for cleaning it up in your edit.

  • Microsoft CEO says unfair practices by Google led to its dominance as a search engine
  • Thanks for letting me know! Is it reposting stuff that it already has posted, or things that others have posted?

    Not finding duplicates, but can dig in a little more after work.

  • Unity Meme Post
  • I don't disagree, but easy solution would be not to look at this one post? Anything else as far as memes will be removed if posted

  • Unity Meme Post
  • We are not allowing memes to be posted still, just inside this post itself as comments to hopefully avoid removing meme posts. We have had to remove multiple meme posts since the controversy began, hoping to alleviate that.

    @[email protected]

  • Unity Meme Post
  • Unity Meme Post

    Seems that a lot of us have some funny Unity memes, which have been getting removed due to Rule 7.

    Making this post and pinning it for everyone to share their Unity memes about this whole fiasco, please only comment the memes here, if you make a post with one it will be removed.

    c/technology mods are inactive
  • Oh gotcha, it is unfortunate non-mods/non-admins are not able to see in the mod logs for who is doing what on LW. If you were able to though, you would see Enu and myself are very active, even though we are not commenting or posting. Same for report resolutions, we get a good amount of reports (false and positive) that we have to weed through throughout the day, those are not publicly viewable (and shouldn't be).

    But that is what I did not get, in the mod logs you can see the community is being actively moderated even though you can't see who is doing what.


    enu is the only inactive mod I found.

    Also, I'd like to apologize for misreading the above. Initially I thought this said "is the only active mod". Enu has multiple accounts, which would make sense on why you'd think they're inactive

  • c/technology mods are inactive
  • Hey @[email protected], not sure which spam you are referring to, but I am one of the mods of [email protected] and we do our best to remove any spam we see or that is reported.

    That being said, there have been times when articles get posted that people report as "spam" that we do not deem to be. If you could provide an example of one we have not removed, I will review it with the other mod and figure out why we did not remove the post/comment - but typically this happens because of the above.

  • c/technology mods are inactive
  • Not sure where this confusion came from, but that is not true, I am also an active mod there.

  • Banner / Logo Contest

    Hey everyone!

    We have decided to do a banner and logo contest, here is how to participate:

    1. Any submission must be commented below in its own thread, that way they are easy for everyone to find. Any top level comments that are not a submission will be removed, commenting on submissions thread is allowed.
    2. Everyone can vote on the ones listed below to help the decision, but the mods will pick their favorites and make a separate post for the community to vote on.
    3. Obviously the design must be tech/news related, all art forms welcome, and please no NSFW. You can submit just a banner, or just a logo, or both if you wish!
    4. Winner will get sidebar acknowledgement and bragging rights. If multiple designs are liked by the community, we will most likely cycle threw a few different banners/logos throughout the year and give each credit on the sidebar.
    5. Anything Elon Musk will be launched by Space-X directly into the sun at the speed of light.
    6. Be excellent to each other!

    Any questions can be messaged to either @[email protected] or myself!

    Weekly tech discussion and tech support thread

    Hey everybody, feel free to post any tech support or general tech discussion questions you have right here.

    As always, be excellent to each other.

    Yours truly, moderators.

    O365 Email Encryption

    My company is just starting to utilize O365 email encryption for sensitive information, which I know a lot of people are already using.

    One thing we've run into is when sending a sensitive email to a third-party vendor, a lot of them utilize shared mailboxes/distribution groups, so the encryption is not allowing the members of the external mailbox/group to open the encrypted email as their account doesn't have permissions (the group email address does, instead of their individual account).

    The only way I've come up with to solve this issue is setting the encrypted emails to not allow a "social" sign-on for decryption, and instead only offer "send a one-time passcode" as the authentication method, then the group/mailbox receives the code to view the email.

    Curious how others have combatted this issue if they've crossed it, this feature has been around a while and I am unable to find much on Google about it specifically.

    For the moment, users are just re-sending the encrypted email to the external recipient that replies "We can't open this email", which solves the problem but creates more work and takes longer for everyone.

    Does anyone else use old equipment for homelab use? If so, what are you running?

    A few years ago I had a couple old and slow Optiplex's running Hyper-V, with Windows/Linux VM's, doing things like NPS, AD, etc.

    Had some old equipment collecting dust, so I've built out a decent homelab and am curious if anyone else has done the same, and if so what are they running on them for fun?

    In my new "rack":

    • PowerEdge R430
      • Running ProxMox, with a Windows VM (DC), and a Linux VM with Docker for Plex
    • EqualLogic PS4100
      • VM storage for both PowerEdge servers (10TB)
    • Ubiquiti EdgeSwitch 24 250w
    • PowerEdge R720
      • Running ProxMox, with some Linux VM's, most utilizing Docker for Plex "assistance/automations" (ahem), NextCloud for phone photo backup and wife's photography, and another DC as a failover of R430's DC.
