Disappointed with

Direct quote from their site:

“When you type in a search, we can show an ad just based on that search term.”

The attached image shows an ad that has nothing to do with my search term, and worse still, is VERY spammy. 👎 DDG.

Adorei a apresentação de @aral no #ParlamentoEuropeu que critica a forma com que a #Europa fomenta o #CapitalismoDeVigilância e como esta implementou errado a diretiva de comércio eletrônico e moderação de conteúdo:

peertube.social/videos/watch/7

"Sob o artigo 14 [da diretiva] os provedores europeus de serviços de hospedagem podem se beneficiar de uma isenção de responsabilidade […] quem nós ouvimos primeiro? #Facebook […] que não é nem europeu nem um provedor de serviço de hospedagem"

This culminated in a very vocal anti-immigrant and racist period late 90's/early 2000's, that my parents also parroted. Nowadays it feels calmer, politics and media seem more diverse, and claims like 'the multicultural society failed' are considered ignorant. From what I gather from my family, Dutch people from Turkish and Moroccan descent 'belong here now.' There are still issues with systemic racism (look up Zwarte Piet), but it feels like there's more acceptance to address these as well. 2/2

For non-Europeans who require context: Moroccans and Turks were seen as the Mexicans of Europe. In the 60's and 70's the Dutch government pulled a large amount of immigrants from Morocco and Turkey for the jobs no one felt like doing. They barely invested in these people and the neighborhoods they lived in. A few decades later there's a bit of tension between later generations of these immigrants and Dutch society. 1/2

Are there any emacs users about who are proficient in elisp and interested in helping to write an emacs plugin for a new programming language?

Fuck cargo cult and trends. What's wrong with people?!

Jeez self-hosting email is getting harder.

I had an email to a mac.com address bounced back to me with a 500 Service unavailable, rejected due to policy.

You'd have thought that they could check the DKIM signature and SPF of my relay which handed the mail to them.

But no, they crawled through all the headers checking the hosts involved in the email's passage and they ended-up at my home gateway.

They rejected the email because of its dynamic IP origin. What hope do we have? 😔
