i like how due to the lemmy word filter there are people having trouble talking about eg stardew valley because tard, smartwatch because twat (since when is that a slur even?), and then non-english people are also getting fucked (eg slut is finish in a few germanic languages)

lemmy maintainer's response? "go away voat troll"

I already hate plausible deniability in politicians' speech, but nothing irks me more than when it involves "child sex abuse protection" to peddle a wide net #surveillance apparatus.

This time it's the EU, but the fallacy "if you're against surveillance, you're for child sex abuse" has been successfully used in the US as well.
@jwildeboer@social.wildeboer.net:

#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.

Because it is the anniversary of their meeting...

Expectations of EU and governments worldwide:

"Oh, my favorite chat app now uses encryption with a backdoor? Guess I'll just stop my criminal activities, go out there and find a real job"

@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.
