  • Basically it's allowed but they must properly mark it as NSFW, so it can be filtered out for minors and people who are actively trying to avoid it. More or less they're making the sharing of adult material a more legitimate thing for twitter, which is kinda hard to tell because twitter has always been filled with porn but I guess it's just more official.

    Wherever or not people will actually mark their content as NSFW or if Twitter will enforce it is in the air. I've seen Twitter content sensitivity setting used more for video game spoilers than it's actual intended use.

  • Hidden by default
  • My conspiracy theory on this is that Twitter Blue isn't doing well so they're doubling down on ad revenue.

    Public likes disincentvise interactions, which is one metric that could be used to measure engagement, so hiding likes, along side their recent policy changes about NSFW stuff, is a way to encourage more engagement towards attention grabbing content that users were otherwise not inclined to interact with.

  • Raspberry Pi launches its IPO
  • There was the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest. It's not a whole country going anarchist and no doubt the limited amount of people with the nessisary skill sets to have a functioning society (judging from the food garden they set up) held back the viability of the protest, but in general the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest was widly seen as a wild failure.

    It's an interesting thing to look up on, and I'd definitely recommend anyone who is serious about anarchism to study it for the potential pit falls of an anarchist society that they would need to work out first.

  • Why isn't jerking off more valorized as an easy dopamine hit that's also literally good for you?
  • A lot of the power users in this thread have clearly never heard of "sex sells".

    Title

    Also non-zero chance some of these guys might have an association with Mindgeek. Just a hunch, given how easy reddit like sites are to manipulate.

  • Why isn't jerking off more valorized as an easy dopamine hit that's also literally good for you?
  • I was going mostly off how I've delt with addictive behavours in my life and how casualised therapists like Healthy Gamer explain how dopamine works.

    It's also worth noting that this user also posted about lacking motivation to even play video games at this point, which if they're using masterbation as an easy dopamine crutch it could explain where there motivation to do anything else is going.

    But yeah, I didn't prepare academic level citations for my lemmy post I made during a lull at work.

  • Why isn't jerking off more valorized as an easy dopamine hit that's also literally good for you?
  • Easy dopamine isn't a good thing. Dopamine is finite but renewable, so if you run through all your dopamine on easy hits your going to end up having motivational issues.

    And if your constantly chasing short term Dopamine hits your brain is going to adjust to seek behavours that give instant gratification over somthing that's just as rewarding, more productive for your personal or professional life, but takes longer to get that dopamine.

    By all means deal with your libido in anyway that doesn't hurt the people around you, but maybe retiring the wankers cramp for a bit might do you good once in a while.

  • Uncle Dad voted for him right before he went to get the meth from Aunt Grandma!
  • Economically comfortable (until very recently maybe), smug middle class lefties using harmful stereotypes to punch down on conservative voters has been a long running embarrassment to the political landscape.

    The demographic these jokes target often have the least amount of freedom to spend on being politically engaged and figuring out who is actually in their best interest, which is why they usually end up voting for a strong personality like Trump and the right's bias towards the Christian inspired philosophy.

    When the left space fills it's self with explicitly elitist, classist, and exclusionary rhetoric like this just so they can all sit around a jerk each other off about how much more smarter they are, they only end up pushing them furtherer away from learning about the left and developing a more nuanced and informed political world-view. If you don't have a lot of time to spend on yourself, are you going to waste it surrounding your self with people who constantly blabber about how much they hate you and think your a incestuous degenerate drug addict invalid?

  • Lemmy is a worse platform for women than Reddit was
  • Being open source doesn't stop the inherent flaws of the Karma system or the increasing toxicity that correlates with platform population.

    It's really cool that Lemmy is FOSS, don't get me wrong, but that's kinda irrelevant to the issues presented.

  • Lemmy is a worse platform for women than Reddit was
  • This is really the terminal issue with Reddit alternatives. They are just Reddit minus the most recent controversy as of foundation. Reddit is overall just a popular content aggregation website with poorly design discussion features.

    Upvotes and down votes, while intended to help users weed out bad arguments and spam, only achive in promoting sophistry and tribalism. What ends up getting upvoted is what "wins" the argument, while good arguments that come from unpopular viewpoints get downvoted.

    And with that comes all the toxic elements from old Reddit ruat we all hope just won't be a part of our replacements. Reddit's format works at a smaller scale, where users are typically more enthusiastic and therefor better informed, but as the sites get larger you'll notice they typical hyper-snarky "owned with facts and logic" attitude take hold of a community as more people with a weaker investment jump on the bandwagon and upvote everything that makes them feel smart.

    Eventually, the site becomes just like Reddit, but for a smaller and more insulated community, and users begin to question why they're here instead of Reddit which has the established user base that can reliably cover more topics you are interested in.

    We have not learnt from history, and we are doomed to repeat it. Maybe it'll be different in the future.

  • The whipping will continue until morale improves.
  • When I worked as a cleaner at a supermarket I got moved to the evening shift which used to have two people who got laid off.

    I was on my own and it quickly became apparent that the shift needs two people to actually get everything done. I pointed it out, but the section lead (incompetent nepohire who was literally kicked out of every other section for being a terrible leader) just decided I was being slow.

    Even after I broke down the hour per hour workload, they just insisted I had to learn how to work faster. One "tip" they had was to just throw water everywhere and mop it up to save time. Let's not even get to the "mental health ping-pong table" they have.

    Whenever I visit that supermarket today it still looks filthy.

  • Why would she tweet that?! We're so effed...
  • I guess staying quiet enough so less people talk about her and her husband's connections to the sex trafficker who didn't kill himself, while still trying to keep relevancy in the political space.

  • So how do you feel about Halo Infinite right now?

    I dropped Halo Infinite a while ago because I didn't feel like there was enough to keep myself engaded, and the monetization just bothers me whenever I see it, but I tired it out again for Infection and ended up sticking around this time.

    I still don't like certain aspects of the game, like the moniatiation or the fact that there are just alot of precision weapons that all do the BR's job but worse in most situations, but overall I feel like Infinite has shaped up quite well these days. Having custom games, especially with infection, really helps bring about diversity in gameplay that Infintie was sorely missing at around launch.

    One aspect I like if the cutscenes for the multiplayer seasons, Dihn is just a cool character and really makes the Spartan IV's feel alot more cool then before, even if we aren't going to get new cutscenes or the fact that the game makes it hard for players to naturally discover these cutscenes. And Iratus is just a fun antagonist.

    What's you're thoughts on Halo Infinte so far?
