Good that Google reminds people about Firefox and its superiority :)

I'd like to remind everyone there is a "block user" and a "block sub" button under every post and every comment. Please use them! You can unblock users by clicking the "blocked" tab on the preferences page, or unblock subs by going to that sub directly and hitting "unblock sub" under any post there. by magnora7 in SaidIt

Exactly. I would advise not to block anybody. Blocking people makes a person getting into his own echo chamber, which should not be how we use the Internet. Instead, we should report users to the moderators if they spread spam or break the rules of a sub.

Brave usage & development helps Chromium usage & development, which helps Chrome usage & development.
Any Firefox fork usage & development helps Firefox usage & development.
Well, I will write an email to include Waterfox in alternatives.

Brave is just another Google fork, no point in mentioning. But Waterfox could be mentioned. Also, Pale Moon. Gab is what killed few people recently, also not worth mentioning. But Saidit isn't that extreme, so I see they could mention it. Don't know Raddle, can't have an opinion.

EU Launch New Army Uniform. Wasn't that "EU Army" a conspiracy theory dreamed up by nasty Brexiteers? Remainers said the entire idea was a load of rubbish, on par with suggestions the moon landings were faked and that Elvis was still alive. by Chipit in WorldNews

It will be used to quell any anti-EU/anti-globalist uprising from citizens in member states.

How do you know that? You can say the same about any other country who has its own army.

Well, EU should create it's own army as fast as possible. Looking on all other rising superpowers EU can be successful only when united.

Look at the spam in e.g. s/technology. There are bots, I'm reporting their spam and guess what - they still exist.

Any people on here like exploring? by PencilPusher55 in AskSaidIt

Few years ago I was in one of the forts of Twierdza Modlin (Poland) in Cybulice. it was total fun, huge bunkeer with many entrances, we even found a room that used to be a kitchen with some Cyrylic words scraped on the walls.
One of these forts was a Nazi concentration camp. Not as known as others such as Auschwitz, but sources say that it was even worse than Auchwitz. However all documentation was destroyed when Germans were leaving the place, so there's no official info what exactly happened there. i want to visit it some day.

Exactly. I am not willingly taking vaccine not tested enough. So my response is that I won't take the vaccine at least until some years after first ppl have taken vaccines. I am pro vaccine, but not pro untested vaccine.

Shouldn't all anti-COVID-19 restriction posts be in one separate sub? by axb in AskSaidIt

[–]Pis-dur 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'd find Covid19 sub concentrated on only studies. Or reddit there r/Covid19 which has this purpose. Just my 5 cents to the discussion.
