If Clinton, Trump, and Did Not Vote were presidential candidates in 2016
  • I mean….. no. Not really. 50% (more than) of the country would need to vote en masse for the same person.

    Don’t get me wrong, I agree that if we could get that level of unity we’d be able to fix everything. But not being that unified is why we can’t in the first place.

  • Some bad code just broke a billion Windows machines
  • Sounds pretty plausible to me. An organization doesn’t have to be very big to get into the hundreds or thousands of devices on a network when you account for servers and VM.

    A company with 40 employees all accessing and RDS server using a company laptop is looking at 85+ devices already

  • JD Vance opposes military aid, NATO membership for Ukraine. He's now Trump's VP pick
  • I agree with a lot of what you said, but the US inventing Islamic fundamentalism is a comical take.

    Abrahamic extremists have been useful idiots of those in power for thousands of years. The US is just the latest to take advantage.

    The real problem there is religion is poison

  • The comment that got me banned from a half dozen communities

    Opinions wanted: defederating with reddit repost bot instances

    Update: so, the responses this far are almost universally that these bots have been blocked by users of the community. There is also a general disinterest in defederating, which is on brand.

    You guys wanna do a poll or something or?

    I’d like to lead my thoughts with a quote from the admins regarding bots within lemm.ee:

    “Bots must not be responsible for the majority of content in any community”

    There are two entire instances that immediately spring to mind, zerobytes.monster’s b0t user, and lemmit.online. Their content is quite literally 90% bot content with 0 engagement, and they spam constantly.

    Now here at lemm.ee we generally don’t defend from stuff, that’s actually why I prefer this instance. Yes, you can block the bot users and that solves the problem, but hear me out:

    These bots ruin the experience on Lemmy for new users. They spam so many posts, attempting to block them from a mobile app will usually crash the app. If you’re a new user coming to Lemm.ee sorting by all, you see tons and tons of empty posts.

    Zerobytes is particularly egregious because it doesn’t even repost actual content, just thousands and thousands of links to Reddit posts. It’s a spam instance, period, and I feel strongly about this.

    Lemmit.online isn’t quite as bad, but it’s an entire instance dedicated to spam reposting everything from Reddit. All the posts have zero engagement, and the comment value is gone so everything decent gets buried.

    Yes there are ways around this on an individual user level, but then you’re creating a context where there’s even less engagement in the vast majority of “new” posts.

    Anyway, thems my thoughts. Repost bots are stupid, one that drive traffic to Reddit are even worse. Thoughts?

    Difficulty logging in on mobile browsers?

    For whatever reason when I attempt to login on firefox or chrome from my iPhone 11, I get the infinite spinning circle. Anyone else experienced this?
