Dr Phil Exposes Pedogate On Mainstream Media by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

I did read comments saying that after this episode they stopped airing Dr. Phil in the Netherlands

This is semi-true, it stopped on RTL 4 and moved to RTL 5 (4 is more of a Main channel than 5). But I can't find if they may have 'lost/skipped' this episode in the move. Dr. Phil is daytime/GOGETAJOB television as far as I know, never been a prominent evening program in The Netherlands.

Edit: On the same channels during the day are Tarotcard-phone-in-readers, teleshopping etc.

Jordan Peterson Announces Debate with Slavoj Zizek by Mnemonic in Philosophy

Slavoj would wreck JP on his charlatanism considering words like postmodern, marxism, capitalism and wisdom alone. But I kinda hope JP doesn't get too clamped down on his 'below-highschool level'-knowlegde about history, economics and philosophy and doesn't get anal about words like he did on his first Sam Harris podcast. I would like them to go after sniff As Peterson likes to cough, snifff call it, capitol T, truth.

Talking about Slavoj's mugshot (In all honesty he just looks like a normal person): Does Peterson have 'tv-makeup' on in this vid?

Nah I think that was the uncle, he stayed in Will's room during the summer.

What's one thing you've done to ride out all the Google algo waves over the years? by onemananswerfactory in SEO

A warning (sort of): When saidit grows it might take up too much space/time to search the comments.

As I (And BEWARE, just me) see it, it;s about the posting to other sites mostly and when someone thinks 'hey that's for me' they will see he comments. For example having the ability to search the comments for 'the' is a waste of computational power(which includes time).

A sitemap for subs, a thing to consider, perhaps an update once a month (or every 2 weeks, that's the time limit right? maybe one week, every sunday).

EDIT: maybe: if you are on ones profile, serch only their comments for terms, take up a lot less time and might be just what people want.

The hardest part is making them look at their own traffic (increase/decrease) depending on the strategy (and depending on their branch, should you check it over the week, month or quarterly).

I am pretty out of the game, but my experience is the greyed out text under the search result changes a lot. Now this was a webshop cms (OLD) had to be altered to accommodate to that. (I believe that's a specific meta-data you can input upon specific articles).

Our search results were [Title: Article name] {greed out: specific information that was relevant to buyers (expert buyers)}

For example a stone:

[Brick: Grey stone, baked]

(URL)

{perfect for building a wall}

Depending on the content the {} values are more reasuring for Buyers before clicking and checking it out, This is my experience in a niche market in The Netherlands (not in stone).

I don't have any Idea what those meta-tags were anymore (i really believe it was some meta-thingie) that secured that greyed-out area, but I'm sure you can find that out ;)

EDIT: By {} info I mean, specific technical info for the experts, so not 'great for keeping out mexicans' but something like {bla bla bla density, morter used, something something techical stone related}. AKA, info for the nerds!

I know from almost 20 years ago you can set up your site to allow or deny their spiderbots

No, you can't. robot.txt only stop 'lawful' ones. Blocking spiders the hard way is... hard (if you click 20 posts in new tabs to read, you can be a spider to an arbitrary spider-blocker, if not I {unlawful spiderbot} will just search up to 20 articles posted every [insert certain amount of time]).

Last I did something with it, load time might be even a bigger deal in the game for 'ranked the same at meta level', comprising the pages (and therefor decreasing the load time) improved 'my' (what i worked for) web-shop above competitors. [Though it was the Dutch market and pretty niche (no, not sexual) products].

'we' opted out of the ad-words and google-search campaigns and 'our' improving of meta game and (presumably) loadtime gave us more traffick than the ads without enhancements. (A lot of people know to ignore the search-engine ads when searching)

Brute force and specific search terms in the ad-words campaigns.

It all really depends what for and the context, but yeah this, keep it all relevant!

Also SSL certificates and relevant meta-tags help.

Oh and site-compression (look it up if you're using a cms, it's hidden somewhere) and minimizing overall loading times help.

Noticed it’s pretty prominent in the F-Droid 'newest' tab!

Also when choosing the 'use tor' setting (under Network in Settings) It stop working and throws up ‘illegal action by user’ kind of error. (I'm on the dutch version, if needed I'll check it out in english sometime). It's a red block message instead of loading any page.

Now the app does load up Orbot when openend with this setting and it loads untill a connection with the tornetwork is made before the error even loads.

There are some 'reddit' legacy mentions, one in my error, but iirc some more. (Sorry don't really take extensive notes in public transport :p)

How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation by Mnemonic in EconomicsTheory

It's about millennials because they are hitting the 30-levels of age (basically the 'old' age of having all your stuff pretty much figured out like job, house, partner and/or children.). But Gen Z (or whatever) will go through the same unless, unless the house market crashes soon and resets in reasonable waters. AKA unless 'we' fix it soon.

My phone is too janky for LineageOS.

Got the same prolem, S5 'Neo' isn't supported and the unoffial Linage ROMs for it seem to have bad connection.

I have heard that location reporting is a core OS feature, as part of the Play store

I believe it's Play services, but you can delete the playstore andplay services and then use Yalp instead of the play store while blacklisting the downgraded playstore (so it won't update again and install play services).

Some apps will complain that play services is missing but usually will work fine anyhow (Just set their 'messages' to off, so it doesn't up up everyday). {You can use Google maps, it will complain on startup about the 'play services' missing [Probably because that is the ALWAYS ON connection to google] }

You can do this without rooting and without using the system-app remover. Just disable the 'apps' (like play store/services) by deleting them, stopping them and blacklisting them in Yalp so Yalp doesn't download 'updates' for them.

  • Disclaimer: I'm not sure about newer phone provided with newer preinstalled playstores (removing it makes it revert to the ROM's default version, so maybe newer phone it gets more dificult.
