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.

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.
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.
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.
@CHEFKOCH@lemmy.ml super bad look dude
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.
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.
