No. I’m asking “how do you generally design workflows for your projects?” I’m not asking for help, I’m asking for the opinions.

How about Crypto?

Is there an decentralized alternative to Venmo and PayPal, or maybe an organization set up for this. GoFund me? Again I don’t know a lot, but just putting food on the chopping block.

There’s GNU Taler.

It's a good thing I ditched GitHub and VSCode!

I can't wait to see what the community thinks about this, and hope the app becoming a one-stop shop for all TF2 customization provides value to all of you. I'm always open to feedback and new ideas, just let me know what you're thinking of! mastercomfig should have *stayed* a performance config; a TF2 customization framework is outside the scope of mastercomfig's goals.

I don’t confuse them. The U.S founded NATO (through the North Atlantic Treaty).

Oof. It’s an AMP link.

Inb4 westerners demonize Stalin for being “homophobic”

Folks, I did it. I got called a tankie online.

The bogeymen that terrorized Africa for 3 centuries, and socialist countries when they exist.

https://redd.it/v8l8vi These people keep bringing up "mArKeT sHaRE" 1. Linux is free. How would it get market share? 2. It's quite difficult to get an accurate "market share" since user-agents can be faked. EDIT: I wonder if Microsoft are making anti-Linux accounts to try and hamper Linux.

Money is a good one, but I would just be hard to verify certain things over the internet.

I wish GNU Taler was usable now…

I’ve thought ab making some sort of social media platform specifically for organizers where we can share experience with newbies and learn from veterans. Write articles, and find ways to help each other out.

It’s not a bad idea. We should get off corporate platforms asap so communications don’t get thrown off.

But I always think ab security and safety and privacy… kind of difficult topics to handle, but I’m not an expert on that topic.

You could setup a tor onion. (I think Lemmygrad should setup a tor onion.)

This post is really overdramatic… How good Reddit is depends on the sub. I frequent /r/linux_gaming for example and it’s a very chill place with good discussion. If you don’t like a sub, don’t use it, but to dismiss and insult everyone who frequents there is dumb…

Yes, users shouldn’t immediately be dismissed as dumb just because they use Reddit; but the majority of users on Reddit hold dumbass opinions; tons of them support imperialist countries (U.S and Japan), their puppets (Taiwan and the Republic of Korea), and organizations (NATO).

The upvote-downvote feature is the worst mechanic to plague social media.

Okay, suggest a good alternative to filter out trash in social media.

Add the ability to hide posts. In fact, It doesn’t even need to be added, I already hide posts through uBlock Origin.

Every alternative without voting ends up being like 4chan, a cesspool where people shout the stupidest most insane (and often offensive) things and you’re forced to trudge your way through it to find any decent content.

Check out a mailing list hosted by a major organization, like the FSF or the Linux Foundation; I don’t think mailing lists exactly form a “cesspool”. Mailing lists generally do not have an upvote system.

4chan is a cesspool because of the annonymity and culture fostered overtime; the upvote system just make it worse. Reddit is an example: good opinions get downvotes because of kneejerk reactions and they reinforce conformity through our arbitrary values. It’s not just Reddit either:

Also, Reddit is a cesspool (like 4chan), just not in the way you expect.

Political stuff.
  • Most Reddit users support nazis in Ukraine (specifically NATO) and delusioned into thinking Ukraine will win.
  • Reddit has an overt western bias due to it being an centralized, english-based website. It also censors communist communities. (For examples, see the quarantined /r/genzedong and banned /r/genzhou subreddits). Reddit has even been used by the CIA to spread propaganda!
  • Reddit admins are known to be hypocritical and unclear when describing their rules.[1][2]
  • Reddit has a shitty award system that monetizes conformity.
  • Bot accounts can easily be automated to mass upvote or downvote certain posts.
  • Upvotes or downvotes can be bought.[3] [4]

At least when I open something like /r/television, I expect to see stuff people enjoy and articles of interest.

Well I can’t exactly expect Reddit to not form a hivemind.

None of the alternatives in the article are real alternatives too. It just sounds like OP got fed up with social media and decided to do something else in their life, which yeah sure but it sounds like you just need to chill out and be the one to ignore the “drunk loud idiots” and just browse places you like.

Why are the alternatives not “real” alternatives? (This argument is like a ‘no true scotsman’ fallacy.) It ain’t exactly a good idea to solely discuss on a centralized platform formed by a corporation in the imperial core (aka the United States).

How do you ignore the drunk loud idiots on Reddit when they penetrate a large mass of westerners?

Walt, I have disabilities and no job…

Oh no, I’m a lumpen-proletariat!

So anyway… what’s so bad about the lumpen-proletariat?

Don't use Reddit for Linux or BSD related questions

Could primitive communism arise as a result of the climate change crisis?
If our society falls apart and we lose productive forces; but humanity still survives, maybe we could return to primitive communism. Some people are saying that the climate change crisis will bring humanity back to tribal ages. (I disagree with them; but it's possible.) In the past, the lack of productive forces meant that communism could flourish. Society was primitively communist because humans could barely produce enough necessary materials to survive. If humanity were to lose a large amount of their productive forces, could we be coerced into returning to primitive communism? EDIT: Elaborated on my opinion. EDIT 2: Of course, this idea supposes that all capitalist countries will fall during the crisis.

[Corridor Crew] used this tech a few months back. --- This is cool! (It could be used for malicious intent; but it also gives people the ability to protect their privacy in the event that they need to show a face.)

I *absolutely* agree! (I'm not stanning for Linus; I have a similar opinion.) GitHub merges have so little info that I may as well just use `git` to merge. I guess that's why I'm confused by GitHub merges in projects.
