[Discussion] Premarital sex is bad and celibacy should be celebrated by [deleted] in CriticalThoughts

[–]Mnemonic 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Condoms! (And yeah you have Vagina condoms made so you can lick it but not infect/get infected by it.) Also some hand-washing before the rubbing. I mean that's what the whole 'I need to use the bathroom' act of both sexes is about before the whole happening: not to freshen up/change into different underwear, but to make sure it's all hygienic.

But more serious: the 'celebrated' thing is wrong. When you get 'status' of being a celibate it just encourages 'secret hooking up' and because it's 'secret' it would be weird to buy the rubbers, buy the pills, take a spiral etc. It's just as wrong as the opposite: the celebration of sex.

Sex is a tool, not a goal. Anyone can handle a hammer, but you're pretty crafty if you build a nice lake-side logde with it.

Getting an STD/getting pregnant (unwanted) is due to:

  • lack of education in some manner, like a CONDOM! FFS dudes, you still cum, unless you have a serious peepee problem.

  • Abuse, rape, the creeps

  • 'climbing up the ladder for your career' I'm pretty sure this is how most 'straight guys' still get a cock to suck.

When sex is the goal you're drunk or an a-hole (or both). I don't mean you're drunk/ an a-hole when you're horny.

Also, think for yourself and don't do things you think you're supposed to do just because the TV/Internet said so... (unless the lesson is don't diddly-doo the children, that's a good lesson for all, including yourself)

The regulation is saying the ISPs can't discriminate upon data-type (to do so would mean they would have to look at the data or discriminate upon site/location).

It's like having the government saying that corporations can't bug your house, even though the (USA) government can do it willynilly because of the Patriot act.

The internet is and has been neutral since it's inception

Indeed

net neutrality is trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

There are problems, only now ISPs can do this too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_packet_inspection#United_States

If you use them when needed. Talking about or to a person you use their name, if there is need to acknowledge their handicap my method is the best because a lot of handicaps (for example Cerebral palsy) have many different severity levels and can cause a lot of different help needs.

If you go around calling random strangers 'Wheels' or 'Sticks' (or the Broken) it's on the same level as calling a dude a lady because of the long hair: it depends on how the person takes it but usually that sort of shit is friend level only. But for communicating the needs (or the lack of need) for help their system works best.

I usually call them by their names :p

Serious: It's easier and better understandable (and used by handicapped people, because they all share the same sports and even schools etc.) to classify upon needs/help they receive.

Aka:

  • Wheelchair

  • Walking sticks

  • Slow walker

  • In need of a special lavatory

  • Blind

  • Electrical wheelchair with air-support

etc.

These are rough translations but they paint a picture. Gimp or Cripple doesn't tell anyone what that person might need or can/can't do, same uselessness as the term handicapped.

But this is all not newspeak, it's normal speak, sorry.

Well the devil only poked fun at god (job), jesus pretty much wimped him away (40 days desert). To troll jesus is to call out the Caesar connection and the falseness of the crucifixion story (and the whole act), or just even that his apostles who are mentioned in the bible couldn't get the dates right. If the crucifixion and the following events were correct then jesus even gave mercy to the devil, the ruler of the Sheol, judge of the dead. Though that wouldn't really troll jesus as it just mocks the false image created by the church of the cool sand guru.

Birdman is a nice watch indeed, also because he was Batman but definitely entertaining!

[Also Timothy Dalton, he's the best bond!] Tomorrow is the final IIRC, the whole story (up till now) is gnostic as Fuggg! And great cinematography.

I forgot to mention Legion (Season 2 ended wildly and 3 is coming up! {and that''s the final season so it's closure, a story well told is better than one stretched out}}) It's a X-men spin off but about mental problems and well, even if you don't know english it's a great watch but the story is also nice.)

We Need to Save What Made Linux and FOSS Possible by Mnemonic in FLOSS

[–]Mnemonic[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The need for security and paranoia (as if you could forget) was in fact brought up by you, when you argued that RMS and his 4 freedoms aren't the only reason to use FOSS. You argued that intelligence agencies use FOSS too!

Exactly, though I don't see how using a modified Ubuntu nor Wireshark helps with privacy nor paranoia. This remark of me was to show that FOSS doesn't suck, not that it's protecting your privacy (Wireshark is used to sniff stuff out), again something you made up.

Here you went from taking an argument which was meant to be a counter to 'it sucks' and turn it into some fantastical thing that I have said FOSS is great for privacy. You could have asked instead of making stuff up about what I meant. But it's common knowledge I presumed you knew. Like I keep asking what FOSS is in your eyes, I presumed you knew and had some criticism, then in my eyes turned out you were bumped about Gimp, Libre Office and Signal.

you're literally citing RMS' 4 freedoms as the only justification for FOSS for the masses

? No I just pointed out what FOSS is at it's core (you, again, make up it's somehow 'my only justification'):

  1. Freedom to run the program as you wish.

  2. Freedom to study the source code of the program and then change it so the program does what you wish.

  3. Freedom to help your neighbour. That’s the freedom to redistribute the exact copies of the software when you wish.

  4. Freedom to contribute to your community. That’s the freedom to distribute copies or modified versions when you wish.

You see how it says 'freedom to'. You don't have to, but you can. Like painting your house, you don't have to, but it's nice to know when you want it to do, you can call a local painter to sort it out. But I guess RMS got you triggered somehow, I appreciate you not bringing up the toe jam though.

right back to the point where I started about why FOSS doesn't appeal to most users.

And I ask now, again, why is that the part that doesn't make it appealing for the public? and with 'the part' I mean FOSS. Like we both agree, normal users don't give/know a damn: Why would something being FOSS be bad in their eyes. You gave 3 examples of a GUI that 'sucked' (and went on to say everything FOSS sucks and it's developers, which I'm countering and then my arguments become oil somehow in your eyes). The label FOSS or even the truth of something being FOSS is not something people turn away from it. (because they don't even know)

that means the programmer didn't do the job properly.

They never do their work properly, I don't assume and I hope you don't think that non-FOSS means 'they did their jobs before shipping it out for cash'. But to be more specific because it's hard to grasp: I buy something and I can't do with it what I want, that's not freedom. It's not about that people 'should' tweak it, but it's optional. Like the Brave Browser, he didn't like Firefox, so he made his own with the things he liked from Firefox. Is this too hard to grasp? Is this the thing we are hung up on?

Instead of having to write and understand and repair and maintain his own program, he wants the exact opposite, which is to let the developer do it for him so he can just use a pretty-looking program to write letters or watch porn. That's it.

You mean like, installing firefox for example? Or installing a web server? setting up LaTeX for university reports? Or any other FOSS application? That's it.

because even if they could hire a programmer they wouldn't want to proofread their work to make sure the programmer didn't put in something awful.

I really don't see how this is FOSS exclusive; at least in FOSS you might have the luck some nerd catches the awful thing instead of letting it slide because the company wants it in and else the programmer gets fired/sued for leaking details about a very vulnerable opening.

playing with definitions, dragging in unrelated software

Sure, me... I still don't believe you know what FOSS means outside your bad experiences with those 3 applications and RMS memes.

(defining web servers as consumer products? Seriously?)

How are they not? You don't have a person website? Portfolio (wanted among artists)? Family history site? That's cool, but if your definition of the web is: corporations only... well LOL how did you get here? (because well FOSS developers suck and all, your words, ehm, why you use saidit? saidit's only proprietary code is Cassandra, something to keep it all in RAM IIRC) Or am I now twisting your words? (How does it feel?)

and now, contradicting and denying your own statements. I'm just not getting any signs of thought from your replies at all.

Could you point them out? Because I only spotted you misinterpreting my words on purpose (because I don't think you're a fool).

First, it changes the definition of "mainstream" from "being widely used by users" to "being widely used by developers to offer their own end-products";

I'm not doing that, you're doing that in your own envisioning of my words somehow.

I pointed out with the examples I gave of people using FOSS that it did nor does suck (as you claimed). Now, if you would have looked at the list and know what is on there (I even hinted nicely to web-based), you would know that the majority uses FOSS for web servers. (If you don't believe: https://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/web_server/all) .

The fundamental point I make has always been the same. FOSS will never be adopted by the vast majority of people because the vast majority of people don't give a shit about reading source code. The only reason anyone might have to use FOSS would have nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that it is FOSS, and will only be because the FOSS option happens to be the better product, which is rarely the case.

That last part came later than your first reply and 'and will only be because the FOSS option happens to be the better product' is what I'm trying to show you all the time. (like the web servers ^ )

There is a very common misconception amongst Linux and FOSS fanatics. Once they buy into their ideology enough, they begin to argue that their software is not only morally superior to that of the mainstream systems, but is also technically superior too.

I didn't do that, stating that the Libre office suit is more powerful is based on the same functionality as the Microsoft counterpart BUT Libre office supports more standards. I admitted that GIMP isn't as cool as photoshop.

I even use Steam to get my puzzle games, Dropbox to get people in the UK their weekly dosis of pirate loot and I run the Oracle Java (not the openjdk). [I also have a Ps3 {ABSOLUTELY PROPRIETARY!}]

The whole moral bullshit is something again, you make up.

will clearly never concede that FOSS programmes simply lack the polish to appeal to the vast majority of computer users on the planet until I positively compare every single programme he wants to pull up and debate the pros and cons of each one in comparison to its proprietary counterpart

That's not true, but you may have your delusions. I don't buy your argument that is means all FOSS and gave counter examples of polished and appealing programs.

As long as FOSS remains true to its core ideology of making software freely available (in the liberal sense of the word), a rational member of the public would have no reason to use FOSS over proprietary software.

The whole point of the source being available is that you have the option to change it (or hire some one to do it for you). Like you're free to paint your house and you don't have to pay the original construction company money to only let them do it for excessive amounts off money.

The obsession with linking being able to read the source code and paranoia and somehow privacy is something you, again and again, make up. That is not what it is about and I never brought that up. This is also why I asked you to explain FOSS how you see it, because this makes no sense and seems to be solely based on /v/-memes.

And why are the FOSS 4 freedoms standing in the way for a 'rational member of the public' she/he should be concerned about what program is the best for them. Just because they have the option of checking out the source and tweaking it to their own liking they are going to discard it? Now if they think they have a better option, that would be a rational decision.

Again, this is not pressing for normal people.

We Need to Save What Made Linux and FOSS Possible by Mnemonic in FLOSS

Great job of deflecting from the main point. You hit the nail on the head when you said "the average Joe [...] calls MacOS the 'fancy windows'," but somehow manage to lose track of your own thoughts not even a sentence later when you talk about how FOSS is everywhere because all systems have some sort of basis in a FOSS program.

I did attack that main-point in the lines above that. I put that last part in there to illustrate that the average Joe uses FOSS but just doesn't know and did not (like you suggested) make a 'choice'. I would have hoped this, along with the nice wiki-list, would help you realize what FOSS is in reality instead of something used only by "for the extremely paranoid or the Stallman clones" (as you put it in the previous post) .

Somehow this all got lost and as I read this response I'm finding out you don't know what FOSS is and why it is what it is.

In the first place, the argument was about whether or not FOSS would ever be mainstream. The contention I'm making is that no, it won't be mainstream because the fundamental ideology of FOSS is just wrong.

But it is already... I pointed that out in the part you didn't quote. I would like to add this comment to it though. Would you then care to explain "because the fundamental ideology of FOSS is just wrong." What this ideology is in your eyes and why is it 'just wrong'?

To answer this claim, you simply argued that FOSS is totally everywhere, because look at intelligence agencies, look at the back-ends of all these proprietary programs, look at all of these people I've chosen to look at who use FOSS!

You argued it 'sucked' out of thin air (3 very subjective examples), I just gave example to counter that claim. (look at these three programs I don't know how to use, it sucks! was your argument... )

But hey, here some more tangible examples:

VLC, Firefox, chromium, Apache, Nginx, and so on... just a quick grab from the list I provided.

Yeah, sure, you've found a few people who use FOSS.

A few?

The man on the street really doesn't give a fuck about reading it, and why should he?

He shouldn't be concerned about reading it if he is not inclined, it's not needed to use it. I don't see the argument here...

As long as FLOSS developers cannot answer this question

Why this question (which I answered above)? First it was because FOSS sucks, but now it's because not everyone likes to read source code?

I don't know if you still think FOSS sucks, including the developers working on it?

I hope I explained well enough that you don't have to read source codes to use FOSS. The man in the street will stare at any developer in mild exasperation when the developer starts talking.

I think this is the crux : Would you care to explain "the fundamental ideology of FOSS is just wrong." What this ideology is in your eyes and why is it 'just wrong'?

FOSS will never be more than a fringe movement for the extremely paranoid or the Stallman clones.

Hmm I don't think you know what F(L)OSS entails and who/what is all running it:

Today FLOSS software is everywhere. In some ways the dream of 20 years ago has been realized. FLOSS software is the norm, GitHub is mainstream. The technology that dominates our era — the internet — is firmly based in FLOSS software, open standards, and interoperability. These are victories, and we should celebrate them. FLOSS was radical idea, and we proved its value.

However, Internet life is increasingly run by a handful of organizations. Many of these, like Facebook, google and amazon have FLOSS software at the core of they systems. However, the layers on top are not FLOSS and there is little openness in the systems they create and run. Today a common refrain is “the Internet is broken. What can we do?”

It's dying out precisely because the ideals of RMS and the other FSF-advocates are exactly the opposite of what damn near everybody else on the planet wants.

This is not true, the hiding of policy driven settings or the repositioning of settings in windows 8-8.1-10 alone has not done good under 'the wants of the public'.

Windows hit the saturation point with their OS under XP, Hell A lot (if not all) countries are still paying Microsoft for keeping their XP system running and '''safe'''.

FOSS will never be more than just a fringe resistance movement that will be at best regarded as eccentric and pointless.

Yeah that's why intelligence agencies like to use that garbage.

The overall public is only a problem for the F(L)OSS community because they get doused with Windows/Mac adverts even in local news. Consultancies are trained to give the cheapest solutions for the highest price, ans that's just that either a preinstalled Mac thingie or a highly customized (and very costly) Microsoft solution for somrthing a 1st year student could have fixed in a secure way in a Linux environment for minimum wage.

You might be focus you musings on the 'want' of the overall public, but they swallow all as long as it has a hui, from 98 to NT to 10, they will take it and that's like saying people will by the ps4 pro and HEY they did.

RMS does not equal FOSS (the other way around, probably will be a subset). GUI is the thing were FOSS in lacks, though with the mobile market and Windows 10 coming out, they are not far behind and it's not something they focus on.

It's not dying, it's just that CPU devices became more prevalent and most of them are smrtphones which (overall) all have non FOSS implementations.

Dat (proberen) op te breken van internetmonopolies (vooral het spelen met de prive van mensen) is de EU al redelijk op weg.

Een ding aan het geval van twitter (en andere 'sociale' media) is dat bijv een BartNijman die hele kliek ook draaiende houd en het doet voorkomen of het vrije woord op het internet onder gevaar is door deze twitter actie. Dit terwijl Twitter een bedrijf met winst oogmerk is en hij (helemaal door bv geenstijl) gewoon ergens anders op het internet zonder problemen kan roeptoeteren. Het is geen openbaar forum, en zeker Bart weet dit. Twitter mag doen wat zij willen.

Het zou mij ook niet verbazen de tweet beoordeelt was door iemand uit de Filipijnen die google-translate nodig had om het half te begrijpen. (Beetje jammer dat geenstijl niet verder gaat/ging over deze 'externe' diensten die twitter (en alle andere) inkopen in arme landen).

Ook de publieke omroep, met genoeg programma die praten over hoe verkeerd 'sociale' media zijn hebben wel een facebook, twitter en instagram account.

It's clear the author doesn't want socialism and certainly isn't advocating for it in any way. (unless being critical about capitalism equals socialism)

I certainly didn't find any economic theory in this article.

If that was your problem, why not say so instead of making stuff up about this article asserting a need for socialism?

The article argues that since there are barriers to entry, capitalism doesn't work and we need "socialism".

That's taking the article to a long stretch,

The broader point here is that leading “capitalists” are often nothing of the sort, particularly when they use political influence to carve out monopolies.

That’s neither capitalism nor socialism. It is something completely different: crony capitalism, corporatism, corporate statism—the terms vary. It promotes wealth concentration that leads to economic stagnation, political instability and the current discontent… which might bring real socialism.

So if you fear socialism, the best way to stop it is to clean up capitalism.

That means stop letting government policy favor large, influential companies. Let everyone compete on an equal footing, and give consumers and workers freedom to choose what they want.

Conversely, if you want to bring on socialism, just pretend nothing is wrong and stay on the present course.

I really don't see how the above closing words rhyme with your assumption.

from: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/j1/the_saiditnet_terms_and_content_policy/

What's Not Allowed

  • Vending of illegal items and research chemicals are not allowed. Nor is discussion of vendors regarding illegal items, links to vendors buying/selling illegal items, or links to pages with links of vendors of illegal items. Subs and users caught buying or selling illegal items, or discussing such, will be removed. US law and Texas law apply to saidit servers.

  • No pornography. Not because we are against it, per se, but it's more about the legal troubles associated with housing this type of content. It's better for the longevity and quality and legal safety of the site not to have it here. There's plenty of porn on reddit and voat and around the rest of the internet, so go there instead if you're interested in that type of content. Also no sexualization of children.

If we as a society stop buying all but basic necessities, it would be entirely possible that the luxuries market would grind to a halt and employers would consequently start employing less people on fewer hours to produce such luxuries.

I agree on that.

Though this does touch on a kind of 'chicken--egg' scenario for these luxuries goods and the need/want for them. I mean like

The reason we continue to work normal hours is not because of some sort of shambolic work ethic which forces us to put in more hours at work despite producing nothing of value; the reason we continue to work is because our "play ethic" (as the article calls it) demands more work from others to fulfill our ever-increasing demands for goods.

That might be true for middle-class and up.

A problem is that low/underpaid jobs somethings set a max on the hours work because of insurance and other things they have to fix for their employers. A normal paid job is mostly a job you can't haggle your time too much are requires you to work around 40+ hours, else you can pack up an someone will take over that will gives those hours.

There aren't many people who have to freedom to choose semi part time hours and not be a burger flipper.

  • Stemwijzer verkiezingen EU al 90.000 keer ingevuld

  • Puigdemont mag toch deelnemen aan Europese verkiezingen

De middelste hoort er eigenlijk niet bij, maar omdat alle drie de artikelen over de europeese verkiezingen gaan en waarschijnlijk veel woorden daarom overeenkomen staan deze als 1 onderwerp bij elkaar.

Where to draw the line between a sarcastic ad hominem remark wrapped into a 'on point' remark stays a bit for the mod to decide, I would handle it:

Like a post not belonging into a sub: PM the commenters say what's what and all. if they don't edit within a (normal) amount of time (12-24 hours) okay delete.

Then there is the "I'm going to reply' side, well stay strong within yourself, calling someone stupid (mild example) doesn't change anything and stupid people are going to believe that they are more right just because you call them stupid.

okay, and that's from a drunk Dutch person, you can shape up to be like me... NO! BETTER than ME! It's easy, very easy, and if it's so easy, you'ld be STUPID not to.
