If you're fine with a mod that's online like twice a month then sure, lol.

Yep, that's completely fine. PhpBB doesn't have a feature for automatic subforum creation, but I'm simulating subreddits on it. Anyone can request their own subforum and they're free to be as active or inactive as they like. I just have to make one manually.

I actually thought my post was quite rambly tbh.

Actually I mean that Theramintrees is an outspoken guy.

One is mostly about patent law and how it fucks up the life of everyone, the other is a long af video about why he thinks the concept of "intellectual property" is bullshit, why copyright is bullshit, how they lead to abuse, how monetizing creativity can work without copyright and how it's ALREADY been proven to work (he's talking about crowdfunding). I don't exactly agree with everything he says, I think he misses the point that creators themselves treat their creations like property or children and they themselves want to remain in control of those things, with copyright or not. And also the aspect of respecting the creator by not making derivative works of lesser quality. If you ask me I think copyright has a tiny bit of validity. Of course not in the current form, what we have now is insanely corrupt and works directly against everything the original laws were set up for. But my reply is long enough, that's a topic for another time. Oh, also his 2 videos "you SHOULD pirate anime" are great too. They're like prequels to those later ones, he got most of his ideas and motivation from arguing with anti-piracy copyright bootlickers and proving his points by organizing a massively successful crowdfunds thus completely shitting on the copyright loyalists.

I'll check them out. A lot of bands are benefiting from their work being pirated, and Arctic Monkeys gained their initial following from them giving CDs away for free. I'm not sure it works this way for every medium, though. I'm not sure if copyright is even a matter of being either valid or invalid. I think it's simply a choice based on the values of the people. What's disturbing is how inorganic the specifics of the current system have developed. The duration of copyright was lobbied for so Disney could milk Mickey Mouse, and the MAFIAA exist to protect the interests of the rich and they're coming after people in quite an aggressive way. I agree with you, though: even though I'd rather live in a world without copyright than in this one, I'm still open to there being limited room for copyright laws. It's the same with patents: the current system where you have patent trolls could never have been the intention, but the essential idea behind it isn't a bad one.

You guys are ignoring the fact that millions of adults took the jab solely out of pressure. They would've faced discrimination or loss of livelihood otherwise. You can't say it's their own fault in all of those cases without knowing the details of their situation. Taylor Hawkins is a good example of someone who had to give in to the pressure (and died subsequently).

The question is more so if the government is using this to assassinate ppl and blaming it on SADS, as the CIA has a heart attack gun.

Do they have the means and motivation to apply it on a large scale? They control the MSM, so it doesn't matter if someone knows too much. They will never get it out to a wider audience, and even if they will, protest movements will be infiltrated and broken up, so the people will remain immobile. I don't think they're even after smart people so long as they aren't a threat. They're eugenicists after all; they're selecting for the unvaccinated. They just want to cull the herd a little and continue with somewhat fewer people.

There needs to be a web interface for it to gain wide traction; that's simply how it is. Even if torrenting became more popular, simply announcing your Patreon or what have is much less effective if you can't put a link in a description or pinned comment below the video. Thus it becomes less attractive to content creators. You can provide a .url or readme file in the torrent, but I don't think many people will click those either.

Yes, Odyssee over Bitchute, not just because of the problems you mentioned, but also because Bitchute practices censorship as well, so that it slowly turns into a limited hangout (although there's plenty good stuff still around). /u/Jesus has documented this censorship. I believe he was negative about Odyssee as well, though. His approach is to point out the identities of the owners, but that correlates with censorship. Take these words with a grain of salt, though, as I'm not that familiar with Odyssee and I could be misremembering what /u/Jesus said about it.

Odyssee provides the option to automatically mirror your youtube channel, so that you only need to upload it there. This is very convenient, but I feel ambiguous about it. It's a soft transition and not a boycott. If everyone has the convenience of just sticking with Youtube while it's possible, then there won't be a shift in consciousness. Odyssee itself may not get the views it otherwise would, and as a result, other content creators on that site won't get as much attention. Asha Logos takes this approach; there's no real need to view his Odyssey because it merely mirrors his Youtube channel. It's understandable, though: these people have a big following, and it's hard to predict what portion would follow them to the alternative platform if they made a complete switch.

This is a good idea, but in my opinion it should happen in a more organized way, with a dedicated website that has a write-up about the motivation for the switch, as well as a community dedicated to Odyssey (and related) content discovery where content creators can announce their switch. But then there should be a considerable number of people on that community. It'd help if the content creators would promote that community; they'd be incentivized to do so if they cared about it because of a shared set of values. That's what ultimately binds and what can help catalyze big changes.

When I reboot https://rabbithole.wf, I can create a subforum there that's dedicated to this effort, and you can moderate it. Are you interested in that?

And thanks for the channel recommendations. I wonder why they have such similar looking names. I haven't checked out the latter yet, but the former looks solid. Very well articulated.

Very alarming. Some context would've been nice, though. They're laughing, so this take at least wasn't meant for the public. But is there another take of this that they did try to pass off as real? I don't like to draw conclusions from just a short clip like this, there's all kinds of context that could be lost on you. They can say, for example, that this is a simulation so that they know what to do and demonstrate for the brief period they're in space, because it's expensive. I just made that up and it sounds plausible.

Her hair isn't floating, of course. I'm sure that'd be a quick way to tell whether or not a video is really in space. I haven't checked for that. I'm sure they can get at higher altitudes within the earth's atmosphere, though, so they could just fly there and then claim it's in outer space, and it'd be hard to tell because there really is lower gravity. They'd have to tamper with what's seen through the windows, but they can do that.

While I think your theory is right, women do not have life on easy mode.

It's more about that perception that they do. That probably is a part of it, regardless of whether it's accurate.

There also has to be a certain lack of self-awareness, as the percentage of men that will ever pass is laughably low, so the reality is they will never actually be seen by anyone as women.

I'm observing that lack of self-awareness. Someone said she passes for female most of the time, but when I later got to see a picture, it was so obvious that that can't be the case. I'm not sure if that's the norm, though. A lot of them fear getting ghosted after the other person sees their picture, so there's got to be some kind of awareness there.

Thank you very much, I'll take a look at it.

On the surface (based on your summary), it seems to me that this doesn't completely parallel what we see in humans, because coddling men as they grow up makes them weak, rather than causing them to join gangs. The other points do seem like frightening parallels with ourselves.

Very important subject. I think it's so difficult to be a man in this society that many men hope to find an escape when they live as a man. You can't buy a house by yourself anymore but there needs to be a second income from a partner who isn't dependent on you. Because we aren't segregated, attractive women will get their dose of attention from men as a reminder that they can always switch partners. The law doesn't make it complicated either. If people are happy together, there's no need for any kind of infidelity, but things become tough sooner or later for most couples, and that's when the strength of their bond gets tested. Even if you get married, there's a 50% chance that it will end in divorce nowadays; it doesn't mean that much anymore. A separation can leave people traumatized. Not to mention all the men who can't find a partner to begin with and become hopeless. This also has to do with the emancipation of women, because they will usually go for someone with a higher income than themselves; this causes problems for men with low income. The dynamic just becomes completely different. This doesn't explain it for younger people who aren't running into these issues yet. But I do think that, in general, life is perceived as easier for women and despair drives men toward transition. Undoubtedly they romanticize it as well, and imagine that life as a mtf will be just like life as someone who was born a female. They notice that people have more sympathy for women and want that for themselves.

Perhaps I'm speculating a lot here, but these are my observations. I know a Youtuber who invested an unhealthy amount of hours in his channel, doing everything from planning the trips to writing to hiring a cameraman to editing, all while he was applying for jobs and burning through his savings. It never became profitable, he paid a lot of attention to negative comments to his videos, his father was disappointed in him, he had to quit his dream job of content creation for a shitty writing job, and he became quite depressed. I lost touch with him and wondered about him. I was afraid he'd get suicidal. Well, he's still alive. But when I heard about him years later, it turned out that he had transitioned to female. You would never expect it from him, as it didn't fit well with how you knew him from the channel. He was a rapper and he made a lot of sexist jokes even. Although there's always a deeper side to people which isn't apparent on the surface, I'll admit that. But still, I always had the impression that transitioning was escapism to him.

If my theory is correct, then the jewish influence is threefold. First, it's their propaganda that helped bring about female emancipation. Secondly, they control the banks and inflated the money to the point that you need two incomes to buy a house. And thirdly, they control the media and use it to push the transgender agenda more directly, disparaging all dissent.

Also, the current statistics may be a bit deceptive, because there's a big campaign going on to have little girls transition to male. The gap will diminish.

For a moment I thought the Einstein quote in which he promoted the Talmud, and which I always thought was a complete fabrication, had its origin in the last name of his tutor being Talmud. Well, it turns out that in fact he did regret not studying the Talmud more, and the name of his tutor is just a coincidence.

Shakespeare is mentioned in the comments to this article. The rarity of genius without a tutor is another argument why Shakespeare was someone else.

A leave falls from a tree
As I reflect upon the dystopia into which we descend
It's like a train which, once having taken off,
Is difficult to stop
Or a set of dominoes falling in sequence.

But then I realize that humanity prevails
Within each are good intentions
They remain to guide us aright
And as this thought enters my mind
The leave hits the ground.

So it's a normie video and the author disparages the conspiracy aware. It's ironic to see him get close to the deeper layer but still miss the bigger picture, i.e. he will readily admit that 9/11 was used to pass the Patriot Act, but it doesn't occur to him that it was generated for that purpose among others. Nonetheless, it's good information.

Edit: or perhaps he's just doing his best to make the information normie-friendly. As the video goes on, he does include memes about how conspiracy theories constantly turn out to be true and such. I approve.

Religion teaches compromise by trident765 in nonmorons

[–]LarrySwinger2 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

My observation is that religious people are less compromising, and I think it's a good thing. For example, take abortion. The atheist will be okay with it because not everyone wants to have children, while human life is sacred to the religious person and so there is no room for it. Another example is usury. There's a need for credit, and if there's an interest on it, atheists will go along. In the Muslim world, on the other hand, there's interest-free credit. Atheists tolerate homosexuality because there's no observable harm in it, and they go down the slippery slope so that children are now encouraged to undergo cosmetic surgery that affirms their view of gender, while the religious person will have none of that because they don't compromise on traditional views of gender and sexuality. They're uncompromising because they believe their values to have a divine source and therefore to be right exactly in the way in has been received and not open for debate. This is the confidence in their way of life that comes along with religion. The good intentions of the atheist (i.e. they want to be open and tolerant) are abused by the planning class so that society is in a constant state of modification and no roots are left intact; religion counteracts this. I'm astonished you're overlooking what is perhaps religion's greatest strength.

Cloudflare "Checking your browser" on Firefox stuck on endless loop by Drewski in AskSaidIt

It's probably extensions, but then again, we need those. One thing that worked for me on Saidit was to first go to https://saidit.net/login.compact, and then remove ".compact" from the URL. Apparently, the compact version is more tolerant about browsers, and then it starts a session and the regular login page will allow your visit as well. But obviously that's not a good solution if it's on more Cloudflare sites. What I recommend is that you disable extensions one by one until you find the culprit, then find an alternative for that. Perhaps it's Noscript or something of the like, in which case you need to make it more tolerant.

Every server has its own public room list. For visibility, it's best to establish your room on matrix.org. But the equivalent of a Discord server are Spaces. (A space is a group of rooms that belong together.) There doesn't seem to be a public list of spaces yet; you have to invite people manually.

What search engine(s) do you use personally? by Hel in AskSaidIt

[–]LarrySwinger2 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I use Andi search because it's the only one that doesn't give me captcha BS if I use Tor. It's a bit slow, though, because it uses AI. Brave Search gives me acceptable captchas and acceptable results. Other good ones are Startpage, GPrivate, Results Hunter, Searx, and DogPile. I use those behind regular proxies.

The sad state of Linux desktop diversity: 21 environments, just 2 designs by TheRealPanzer in Linux

It's an interesting read and I can read this stuff for hours. However, I think he doesn't get his point across well. He gives us a romp through things that are actually available for the OS and it reminds you of how lovely that is; there's nothing sad about that at all. Furthermore, he has a rigid concept of what a user interface can be. First he hints at the fact that one can have a completely different type of user interface, then he shows you more of the same. All of these are derived from the PARC user interface. As people have mentioned, there are also tiling window managers. But there's much more radical stuff too, such as CLFSWM. He could've showed us the Xanadu project, which is an interface focused on linked hypermedia. Also, the article contains an error. It says graphical desktops go back to the '80s, but actually, one was already demonstrated in 1968 at The Mother of All Demos.

I almost went to Castlefest once but couldn't go, and it doesn't interest me as much anymore. It's funny how people from abroad look at it, though. Because the option was always there for me, it never struck me as something particularly special. I guess I'm not as enthusiastic about fantasy as many others - I never liked the Lord of the Rings films either.

I don't really think the Christianity is the major theme in Hail Caesar, the proletariat screen writers, and the easily duped actor I think is a bigger theme.

Can those really be called themes, though? I think of them simply as plot points.

Barton Fink deals with I guess a Judaeo-Christian theme but but it really is more like Karma.

Barton Fink is in part why I noted the Coen brothers' Jewishness, but even moreso because of A Serious Man. Karma-like mechanics are even more present in that film.

That movie leaves you with a lot to wrestle with, well me anyway.

Pun intended?

How "Jewish" are they though? I guess they are culturally Jewish, but are they religious?

When I say someone is Jewish, I don't necessarily mean they're religious; about half of the Jews are religious. I don't think the Coen brothers are religious. There are other films that have religious or spiritual themes even though the director is agnostic; examples are Pulp Fiction and Pi.

But back to A Serious Man. Kabbalah, which is Judaism's mystical dimension, plays a big role in it, and they must have spent a considerable time studying it. They were probably exposed to it during childhood, as they were reared by religious parents, and must've maintained an interest in it into adulthood, regardless of whether or not they remained observant Jews. Perhaps it became more of an academic interest. I've studied kabbalah, and I was reminded of this film constantly.

Can't they just store deltas and generate the versions based on that? And they do have the funds, as Panzer pointed out.

Also, do you have a source on the actual deletion of old revisions, plus details about their deletion strategy? I can't find anything about it.

That's a double negative, so it means you have to believe in at least one thing. That's solid life advice. Everyone needs something they can believe in.

Chantard means someone who browses 4chan. (It's a neutral term, not a derogatory one.)

I suppose the Netherlands isn't nearly as polarized as the US (which I'm going to assume you're from; correct me if I'm wrong). When I think about tribes, I think primarily around communities who establish themselves around some interest, not about left or right wing politics. I've never stumbled upon any left or right wing group IRL in my entire life.

Indeed it is. I absolutely adore the Coen brothers, and this is one of their better ones if you ask me. What the film tells me: we can only get so far by relying on reason alone, and at one point we have to go by intuition and have faith that, in spite of all the risks, we should act morally and resist temptation in whatever form it comes. The directors are Jewish, and they portray a Jewish mindset in other films, but in this one they take on Christianity and they did a perfect job. What are your favourite films by them?

Well, have fun filling out 100 captchas per browsing session. And it won't even make an impact when people do it individually; it should be coordinated. Tor Browser uses a standardized UA. I think it's better to encourage people to use that one, or simply to use the Tor Browser itself. I believe Librewolf uses the same UA.

No, that isn't it. I find it easy to strike up conversations IRL as well, but nonetheless my tribe is online on forums like this one, or among the type of people that visit 4chan. I want to be able to say things like "covid psy-op" without making people frown. I know individuals who live in truth, but you won't stumble upon entire groups of such people IRL. The recalcitrant nature of chantards is what naturally makes them resist cough it measures; no-one has to educate them. That's why they're my tribe.
