@koherecoWatchdog @geotechland nobody said it was perfect. the project still hasn't released a v1 so I'm willing to forgive some issues with the site. even after a v1 release, so long as it is *good enough* to use and attracts a user base, it is a good project. there's no point to a "better" platform if nobody is using it, so I'll stick with Lemmy.
@koherecoWatchdog you got a couple things wrong:
2. a frontend without js is already under development (though inactive at the moment) https://github.com/IronOxidizer/lemmy-lite
3. anyone can write their own frontend for lemmy, because that part is completely separate from the backend https://join.lemmy.ml/docs/en/contributing/custom_frontend.html
I really like the idea of a federate reddit alike platform.
Unfortunate it's developed by tankies, that aim to design the platform as a mean to unboard new potential "members".
(tankies are people that admire Lenin, authoritarian governments as long as branded as being red, are fine with genocides if done by the right people,...)
Ever wonder why the most popular instances having .ml in their address?
Some say that's just the top-level domain for Mali, others say they choose this TLD type as a dog whistle for ML (Marxism-Leninism)
Ever wonder why the second most popular instance is called lemmygrad.ml?
Yes, a dogwistle and a romantasies reference to Stalingrad. Look at the symbol they use, they don't even hide the fact being tankies.
that is true. But #lemmy is not just some lines of code that run isolated form human interaction. Lemmy is a federated network of reddit alike instances. They can make sure that particular communities receive higher or less visibility.
Similar to joinmastodon, you're presented many different communities. You won't find Gab being presented there. If it would be presented there, I would oppose mastodon, gladly they don't.
Oh it's no secret the devs are biased toward communism. I am fine with that.
When Bitchute launched, it clearly had a bias toward right wing ideology and it still does. They frequently promote right wing channels on twitter.
I think it's fair to point out the biases but I don't think Lemmy devs are being malicious. They are open about their bias.
I know one of the devs that you speak of, I use to post my content on his peertube instance.
Being biased towards Marxist-Leninism is not equal to being biased towards communism.
>When Bitchute launched, it clearly had a bias toward right wing ideology and it still does.
It's an project by the alt-right. So simply don't use it, and don't promote it.
My point is the mastodon creators have a bias toward speech that you agree with so you have no problem with them.
I could argue that they should let users decide which instances they would like to interact with instead of banning instances at the server level.
Boosted the video but it appears under "Wild West" instead of "Tech" on odysee. Might want to ask lbry if you can have your channel moved :)
@tuxfoo I may just reach out. I have noticed i have never seen it on the TECH page. I was thinking it was due to not "boosting my videos with LBRY"
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
