#chatcontrol is an EU plan to spy in real time on *all* your communication, including encrypted messengers like Signal. Let me put it bluntly: If the state doesn't trust me, I will never trust the state. This is unacceptable. Period.
@alexbuzzbee If "The true meaning of life is in the eye of the beholder", in which part is it exactly?
@cooper Personally I am a fan of archlinux, mainly on account of versatility and documentation. The available software is great for me, plus rolling release I am a fan of. Note that I have also been using Linux distributions for several years now, archlinux probably isn't a great choice if you don't know how the pieces fit together.
@yarmo Yeah, who knows. Maybe more people will try to be civil, maybe more people will go be uncivil elsewhere. I just wouldn't bet on it.
@yarmo As nice as it is to not have slurs on a social site, I don't believe this is a great solution. If people are going to use slurs, they can just invent new ones (similar to how pr0n became a "word") to mean the same thing. If a platform's userbase is toxic to the point that a slur filter needs to be put in place, I'm fairly certain that's what they'd do.
Though I agree it's a nice effort to make a healthier environment.
@fribbledom How often are you updating to see this o.O
I try to keep my updates weekly, know some people who keep it monthly.
We are allergic to your personal information. It burns. The concept of holding it alarms and concerns us. We do not want you to give us your personal information, nor will we try to collect it. You may have noticed you cannot log into this site. That is because we are afraid you would use your real name as your username. If we discover we somehow have someone's personal information, we will burn the entire computer. Even the suggestion of personal information makes us tremble.
I like maths, computer science, metal and cats - not necessarily in that order :)
