Blockchain social networks?
Hey there. What do you think of blockchain social networks, like steemit, etc? Do you have to be into crypto to join them? I was thinking of trying one out.

This might be counterintuitive, but breathwork has been known to help deal with trauma and work through trauma. I’d link them to a breathwork video if they were willing. If not, that’s fine too.

Fediverse social media?
Hi. I was wondering what are some good fediverse social media sites? I know of two, mastodon and movim, are there any others?

I would say it’s not their fault, they’ve had to deal with a lot, but nothing that’s happened to them is their fault.

I mean, technically it’s not, everyone has some sort of trauma in some way.

I’m pretty sure these people haven’t been shown an ounce of kindness

Trolling but with kindness?
Hey everyone! So I recently joined a very toxic reddit alternative (not this one) and there's a lot of hate speech on there that makes me want to scream into the void, but anyways. I decided to kind of "troll" people on this platform by asking what their unresolved trauma is and why they have such misdirected hatred toward one group or another. Wish me luck? Do you think we should "troll" more people with kindness?

No I love lemmy. It’s not a very toxic community, unlike other reddit alternatives which allow hate speech, but that’s a different topic for a different day.

I mean, I would, but then my hope for humanity would dwindle even more.

Thinking of joining a reddit alternative...
Hey humans! I found a reddit alternative I was thinking of joining, but there are some forums on there that I disagree with one hundo percent, and I'm wondering if I should still join the site? Would I still be an ally if I join the site? The forum names are mostly racist slurs, etc and so forth.

I read a passage in the article, “how the internet could be and can still be” and it reminded me of the protocol Gemini. Gemini is a smaller network, similar to http, and was actually supposed to be the main protocol for how the internet functioned, but then http came in and now we have ads, spyware, etc. Basically, and this sounds boring, I know, but the internet was supposed to be read-only, since Gemini network doesn’t have videos or anything along those lines. There are LOTS of Gemini-based browsers that demonstrate the Gemini network. It’s pretty cool.

I’m bothered the user was allowed to post hateful things in the first place. It ruins the atmosphere of a site.

Ramble has been overrun
Hi. Okay, maybe "overrun" isn't the right word, but I went to check Ramble out and some user by the name of H*tler_was_right has been posting a lot. Not sure if this is because Ruqqus has changed their stance on free speech, but it's gross, and disheartening to see sites like Ramble or any site, really, be overrun by n*zis or white suprem*cists. Just my rant for the day.

I wasn’t sure where to post, my bad.

Reddit alternatives
Hi. I just heard about Ruqqus and all I can say is, I'm pretty sure poal.co will be the next to fall. I went and checked it out and someone posted a homophobic slur on the front page as the title of a post. I was like "fuck this shit" I do support free speech, but there should be a line somewhere, right?

I’ve been using it on and off. It’s very good. I really hope they add more secure tracking protection and a hideable sidebar.

I liked Dat. They had lots of programs and software on there. I might be thinking of Block browser or whatever the name is.

Wim Hof Method
Hey Lemmy! I am curious if anyone here has tried the Wim Hof Method out. What was your experience like, did you notice any changes, positive or negative?

What about browser(s) that use the HOSTS file to block ads? The Classic browser does this, and has some nifty features baked in.

Best eco/environmentally friendly web browser?
Hi. I wasn't sure where to post this, hopefully this is the right area. In lemmy's opinion, what's the best eco/environmentally friendly web browser? Basically low on resources, saves battery, etc. Private and secure is a bonus.

They are pretty toxic, it seems. I was told to “go back to firefox, they are wokies like you”. And a couple other comments from brave’s fan base.

I made a post on r/browsers over on reddit and someone said to go back to firefox, they are wokies like me. Plus a couple other comments as well.

Please boycott Brave
Didn't know where to post this, so hopefully this is the right spot. Please boycott Brave. I've recently learned that not only is their CEO bad, but their fanbase is toxic, too. I will no longer be using Brave for that reason.

There were leaks of users that used Tor. Their DNS was leaked along with their searches when using Tor in Brave. It’s since been fixed, though.

I called out a fearmongering and hatespeech article on ruqqus and got -6 votes, so it’s not that bad lol.

I read on brave’s website they are using ex-Cliqz developers to develop their own brave search engine. Cause Cliqz was privacy-oriented…Their privacy practices weren’t good from what I recall.

I’ve heard of that Tor push thing. It’s cool that Firefox is first to implement it. Honestly, once Vivaldi gets better with battery life I’ll probably switch to Vivaldi.

Brave browser: Is it worth it?
Hi. Not sure where to post this, hopefully it fits here. If you haven't heard of Brave browser by now, it's made by the ex-CEO of Mozilla, and is prided on being private, and integrates crypto/bitcoin. I like the idea of crypto, and would like to get more into crypto/blockchain, but I'm not sure I can support brave, or it's CEO. Do I swallow my pride and just use Brave? Would it be worth it, just for the privacy additions and crypto? One reason I'm hesitant, is Firefox now has site-to-site cookie protection, whereas Brave does not. Mostly, I'm arguing with myself at this point, on whether to use Brave, and swallow my pride. Sure, as CEO of Mozilla, he made a bad political call. People can grow, right? Someone rebutted to me that Obama didn't support gay marriage either, and neither did Hillary Clinton. Sorry to harp on this topic so much. What would y'all do? Sidenote: A breadtuber I really like uses brave, so Brave can't be all that bad?
