An incomplete list of reasons I block accounts:

  • Ranting about journalism rather than discussing the actual news.
  • Whining about paywalls rather than just circumventing them yourself. It's 2024 you should know how to use an archival site by now. Don't expect everyone to everything for you.

    Federation issues since vger.social upgraded to 0.19.4

    I've noticed vger.social is having problems federating properly with a couple instances, so far I've noticed it with midwest.social, and sopuli.xyz, although I wouldn't be surprised if there were more. Posts and votes are either not displaying at all or lagging by hours. The former is on 0.19.4 and the latter is on 0.19.3 so I'm not sure if it's strictly related to the upgrade or if the timing was just coinsidental. Has anyone else noticed similar issues?

    Elon Musk drops lawsuit after OpenAI published his emails | CNN Business
  • OpenAI, meanwhile, accused Musk of essentially being jealous that he was no longer involved in the startup, after he left OpenAI in 2018 following an unsuccessful bid to convince his fellow co-founders to let Tesla acquire it.

    So a spoiled brat had a massive hissy fit after not getting his way? Yeah, that sounds like Elon alright.

  • Manhattan DA Bragg, who secured Trump conviction, to testify before GOP-led Judiciary Committee
  • Yep, they're just trying to give Fox News something to distract their army of red-hatted dullards with.

  • Ah, yes, there's lemmy's second favorite hobby, whining about paywalls rather than just pasting the url into one of the numerous sites that allow you to circumvent them if you can't view it. But hey, why do anything for yourself when you can just demand others do everything for you?

  • Presumptive GOP Nominee for President Meets With His Probation Officer
  • That headline is golden. But boy is it depressing that this is where we're at as a nation. And it's all because the GOP has been taken over by fascists and their army of useful idiots in tacky red hats.

  • Schools? Oh, we won't have any of those when the GOP is done.

  • Justice Alito Caught on Tape Discussing How Battle for America 'Can't Be Compromised'
  • Yes, but we're on lemmy so you'll have to forgive me for focusing on what's relevant.

  • Justice Alito Caught on Tape Discussing How Battle for America 'Can't Be Compromised'
  • The GOP will be coming for Brown v Board of Education next, and you can bet your ass Clarence Thomas and the other right wing justices will be all for it.

  • Justice Alito Caught on Tape Discussing How Battle for America 'Can't Be Compromised'
  • I've noticed a large percentage of Lemmy users don't read articles, so rather than discussing the news in the comment section, they just nitpick the headline instead.

  • Justice Alito Caught on Tape Discussing How Battle for America 'Can't Be Compromised'
  • Yeah, it's an expression. Kinda like how you ask someone to "roll the window up" in a car and everyone knows what you mean, despite the fact that the vast majority of cars produced in the last 20 years have come with automatic windows as a standard feature. But hey, don't let me interrupt lemmy's favorite pastime, inanely criticizing headlines as if that actually offers anything of substance to the discussion.

  • Yeah… People just need to start slurping down gruel for every meal and be happy about it. How dare someone complain about grocery store prices when I know for a fact they splurged on a bag of name brand potato chips last week! The poors are not just entitled but completely irresponsible. Don’t they realize simple luxuries like snacks are for rich people?
