Got this error while browsing Reddit. I found a comment on /r/bugs that states: >It happened because an error occurred while getting the data about an error that occurred within another error ([Source](https://old.reddit.com/r/bugs/comments/4xsr7n/error_this_is_an_error_that_should_never_occur/d6iemzb/)).

I’m incredibly discouraged at the privacy community’s inability to come together for a losing fight. […] The sheer lack of empathy in the privacy community is astounding, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Developers attacking other projects to protect their fragile ego, people new to privacy being shamed for not knowing everything out the gate, users pushed to feel regret because of their conscious (and commonly educated) decision to stay within the Apple ecosystem and work within its limitations. The list goes on.

This is something that I’ve been echoing for quite a while now. Lots of people completely divided. We need marginal increases in privacy for the masses as opposed to extreme life changes for the few.

Oh trust me I remember! There was that account that was spoofing you.

you can’t verify android software with a hash. so infected versions can be selectively pushed to particular people.

This would be NSO group’s dream I reckon.

The boxes with 3 dots mean a coherent continuation of sentences or quotings. This is a very common grammatical usage in discussions when you want to avoid quoting irrelevant context amongst paragraphs of text to express what someone wanted to say in lesser words.

Thank you for explaining, I did not know this.

You want sources for what? Anglosphere since Renaissance has fought tooth and nail to retain the Anglo supremacy across the world. Britain had an entire Commonwealth empire, and post WW2, USA was passed the baton and now they have an empire with basecamps stationed around the world.

I tend to ask for sources when I can tell someone is responding out of emotion.

What sources? There are no sources here. Just boxes with three dots in them? Am I missing something, or are you being facetious?

Why the manifesto and no sources? You constantly say many, but… looks around and sees no one

many creators are moving there.

Maybe a niche group of creators, but no, not really.

Most larger universities I’ve been to do this as well. You don’t really need to worry.

I didn’t, because I’m smart enough to use ad blockers/cookie blockers/etc. I recommend you do the same. I expected a little more from someone subscribed to a privacy community.

Lmao, not gonna lie, this one got me.

Already saved! I just wonder how it’s going to work if it isn’t updated? Maybe the author developed it so it always pulls a random work every day?

I use old.reddit.com and I’m ashamed to say that I’ve forgotten about RES. That being said, so have most people apparently. I bet the transition to new Reddit killed a lot of average users’ demand for RES.

Of course they would. Bastards. They’re just going to lump it behind their expensive subscription that gives you access to their games.

Readium-css has an iOS testing app that you can download (link to it on their webpage). That’s really about all I could find to be honest.

Will there be a big announcement? I don’t want to miss it.

It’s the people (most of them). I’m here for the people.

I’ve only recently started to get into reading books. I know it may sound silly, but the only books I read growing up was required by school (which was a lot and a lot of important books were read). I tend to read more non-fiction since I don’t tend to use reading as escapism as much as I do education.

The other day I read an entire (small) book in a day, and it was a terrible book. It was called The Kingdom of Speech by Tom Wolfe. After reading it I looked at some reviews of it and saw that my sentiment was shared. The author did very little research and just goes about discrediting 150 years of scholarly research to arrive at his own conclusion. Additionally, there’s a strong sense that the author is upset with political correctness because when referring to an indigenous tribe, he will say the following:

“… the nati -er, indigenous - peoples…”

and it just rubbed me the wrong way entirely. He did this so frequently that it was really upsetting my reading. This book review is pretty short, but devastating: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/sep/08/the-kingdom-of-speech-by-tom-wolfe-review

I read the book because my spouse bought it on a whim some years ago, and I felt like it. Don’t recommend though haha. My next two books will be Mutual Aid and The Ice People.

I mean, yea, this shouldn’t be a problem at all. It’s kind of a bad look for Tesla

Stress on the motor will likely cause it to overheat or break. That’s probably all.

Dang, really enjoyed this one. Good share!

No worries, just a misunderstanding then.

I love how such a specific thing stuck in your head for so long haha, thanks for sharing.

You contradiction was in fact, not a contradiction, but a thinly veiled attempt to feel correct.

I’m glad to hear that its being discussed, but I’m not sure what the best course of action would be in this scenario. It seems that each has their drawbacks, including doing nothing.

Had a lot of good interaction with mekhos, you’ve got my vote

Yeah I agree that it’s starting to get a little pitchforky, but mostly, people are just sharing similar experiences with the mod - which is good, because a shared dialogue about a series of bad behavior helps to inform the community. As for using the voting buttons, that’s all well and good, yeah. Always vote.

Yeah, seem to have learned that the hard way. I just wanted to make a post to bring awareness.

That’s why you should read the post and comments and not base your opinions on a simplified screenshot. No need to be toxic.

I’m definitely surprised. I’ve received messages now about how they hand out bans like candy to anyone who disagrees with them.

Geez, what kind of validation are apps supposed to go through for listing on the Play Store?

Was having a conversation with a mod who was upset that I downvoted their opinion. Apparently if you disagree, you are banned. Looking at you [@CHEFKOCH@lemmy.ml](https://lemmy.ml/u/CHEFKOCH). I wouldn't consider anything I did trolling or a violation of the rules of c/scandalzilla. Here is the post if anyone wants to validate: https://lemmy.ml/post/163594

This is a good app to have if you're concerned about potentially being tracked via an AirTag, or you just want to help someone find their lost items.

I’m a bit confused by your stance: are you trying to say that the ends justify the means in this case?

Nice to see a bill be introduced that bans targeting ads beyond the city level. > The Banning Surveillance Advertising Act is backed by a coalition of Democrats in the House and Senate. The privacy bill would specifically ban “protected class information, such as race, gender, and religion.” But it would also forbid the use of information gleaned from third-party data brokers in targeted advertising, a move that could wipe out that industry entirely. In addition to the Democrat support, the bill is backed by several privacy services (notably Protonmail and Duck Duck Go) and rights organizations such as the Electronic Privacy Information Center and Common Sense Media.

User Interaction Data
Does anyone know if it's possible to download/scrape the username, number of posts, and number of comments for every account on this instance? I want to make a post that looks at user contribution, and shows different variations of X users are responsible for Y percent of engagement/content on this instance. Anyone have thoughts?

My dichotomy with technology and privacy
cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/151310 > **tldr** > > I struggle to find balance between wanting privacy in my day-to-day, and wanting to use the newest and greatest services and products. > > **Pretext** > > This post is meant to drum up some discussion that I feel is often lost on privacy focused communities. It's about the nexus between privacy and modern technology. I hope I don't sound like an idiot, I still consider myself a novice at technological privacy. > > I'm a fairly privacy concerned individual, not for any particular reason other than that I feel it's my right, my data, and I should have the say over who gets to see/use it. Especially when I'm paying for a service. I find that at times, I am more privacy oriented than others. I have a Google Pixel 4 that I've used Lineage OS on for a while. I've bought an old thinkpad and have a a linux distro running on that as well. I also have, an iPhone, a Macbook, and a desktop PC used primarily for work/gaming that is running Windows 10. *EDIT: I also want to recognize my privilege to be able to choose between all these devices. Not everyone can switch around so freely.* > > Every few weeks I tend to flip coins on the matter. Some weeks I really just want the ease of everything working, quick google searches, iMessage, polished operating systems, etc. Other weeks I want to be a total privacy nut and clamp down on all of my traffic, pop my SIM into my Lineage Pixel, and do my work on my laptop for a while. > > **Conversation** > > I want to know if anyone else goes through these types of moodswings like I do? I also want to hear your stories on how you went all the way and never looked back, or tried to and ended up somewhere in the middle. All of this back and forth for me has made me a much more privacy minded person, and the non-privacy focused products I used are about as clamped down as possible - but that's not saying much.

I really enjoyed this. They also have a few versions of this song on their Spotify as well - also very good.

Let me know your thoughts! Just an informational video on the history of Black anarchism
