Hi #foss #opensource people! I have a mobile app which is rated as PEGI-3. In the app there is a content store which allows you to download mods. By default, "mature" content is filtered out in the app. There is a setting in the advanced settings menu which allows you to show mature content, but isn't directly advertised as such. Does this violate PEGI-3? The content is user-provided but moderated. Mature content includes horror, gore, and drugs
Hey, I'm wondering what the #opensource chatroom software of choice is for the people here! I'm looking for something with usability and features rivalling Slack and Discord. Whilst I like IRC, it scares people a little. Any suggestions?
Hey #foss people! Does anyone know the legality of having some form of content rating on a mod store? I run a mod store where people are starting to add mods which contain things like drugs and excessive violence. What's the best way to allow inappropriate content to be hidden and not fall foul of the the law? #freesoftware #legaladvice

"BUT IF WE HAVE A 70% TAX RATE THEN PEOPLE WON'T WORK"
my dude, the people who'd be affected by a 70% marginal tax rate already don't work. they just accumulate money like a star accumulates planets and space garbage; sitting there and farting out hot gas a lot

Companies, I don't care if you ARE running a program to hire a more diverse workforce, don't invite me to join your event because I'm "diverse."
I'm really fucking good at what I do. Invite me because of that, not to fill your damn quota.
Also: No. I'm happy at Juniper, thanks.
Quite a few settlements now utilising potential solar and hydro power sources. Finite resource extraction kept minimal. Plenty of food and technics in the commons. The diverse ecology is flourishing.
As we hope to open this up as an official Sunbeam project in the future, are they any additional mods folkx would like to try?
