I feel like the response of the poster was a bit overly mean; yes, the offer was ridiculously low, but usually, it is best to at least try to get something, even if the chances seem ridiculous, if it doesn't cost one anything; and perhaps this person just couldn't afford anything more, and was offering all they could just in case.

California city to ban gendered language like ‘manhole’ and ‘manpower’ by HeyImSancho in SundogsPlace

[–]happysmash27 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I absolutely love gender neutrality, but the replacement words better not sound like my English teachers satire "personhole cover". Something like "utility access hole cover" works much better.

…Woah woah woah, I am reading the article, and the title is a bit misleading!

California city to ban gendered language like ‘manhole’ and ‘manpower’

Banning is bad, therefore this sounds terrible.

The city voted Tuesday night to replace gendered terms in its municipal codes, like “manhole” and “manpower,” with gender-neutral ones like “maintenance hole” and “human effort.”

That is not banning though.

Well, I'm certainly glad they used reasonable names and not the ridiculous-sounding names from satire! In the case of "manhole" and similar, this is a nice, but largely insignificant change in the municipal code terminology, because who actually thinks of "man" when they hear "manhole" anyway? In the case of other changes, however, like gender-neutral pronouns, it makes me quite happy, as ones like that which are noticeable actually do irk me ever so slightly.

Edit: Also, this says "California city", which led me to believe this was happening in California City, but it's actually happening in Berkley.

While in theory this might seem to be a good concept, it has serious consequences: things like racism, sexism, verbal abuse, violent nationalist propaganda, discrimination against gender and sexual minorities, antisemitism and a lot more things become popular on such instances.

F-Droid then goes on to say that “moderation” is necessary to prevent “oppression and harassment” from flourishing.

Are they implying that such ideas are so good that the only way to avoid people being convinced by them is to censor; that a rational newcomer who doesn't already have these ideas would be drawn to them because they are so convincing? That almost endorses the terrible ideas they, as do I, dislike so much.

If one is confident in being right, they should engage and not censor, because if they really are right, the right answer will win with everyone who is even a bit willing to change or form their opinions.

One should also avoid censoring because it is possible, that at some point, something the other side says might actually be a good as well, even if one strongly disagrees with other things they believe. Are animal rights, or investment in infrastructure, bad because Hitler believed in them?

What's your opinion about pedo content on SAIDIT? by Snow in SaidIt

[–]happysmash27 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It depends on what you mean by pedo content.

If you are talking about opinion pieces related to it, I think those should stay, as the ability to voice my opinion freely about this is a mojor reason I like this site so much.

If you are talking about actual child pornography being posted, of course that should not be posted, because that is illegal, could get the site in trouble, and in many, if not most cases, is likely to be unethical. Plus, pornography is not allowed on this site anyway.

If you want to see why Bitcoin specifically is a problem, please see my top-level comment again :P ! One thing many don't realise is that when quantum computers get powerful enough, they will be able to crack the private keys of almost every single cryptocurrency, which could even happen in a few years! /s/QuantumResistance is very important!

It probably won't be much of a problem for you, though, because physical gold/silver isn't just quantum resistant, but downright quantum proof! It is by far the safest asset, and definitely safer than, well, any of the 3 cryptocurrencies (last time I checked) which are quantum resistant, despite how secure they are.

Seriously though, you should add a lack of quantum resistance to reasons to avoid Bitcoin, because it is a very big problem no one has been paying attention to.

Happysmash and I disagree on cryptos. I do not trust them.

I don't see where the disagreement is, considering that my comment explained that 99% of cryptos have a critical vulnerability, and that even the couple that don't are still pretty risky due to crazy speculation :)

Crypto is convenient, and not fiat, but that doesn't mean it will survive an internet outage or that it is good for the long-term.

I probably should have said "volatility" instead of growth.

It would be impractical to target every single distro as a platform, but targeting dependancies might work, as well as some desktop environments and distros if they are particularly integrated.

It would mostly make sense to have me as a mod if there are too few moderators for some reason, if you would like native SaidIt input, or if you need your stylesheet edited, which I can do.

Totally!

As an Anarcho-Communist, my principles are basically libertarianism + "let's give things to each other for free" as a movement. The main difference between my values and Anarcho-Capitalism is mainly that I think land should not be privately owned. This works for both communism and capitalism though: for communists, it means free land one can use to produce free resources, while for capitalists it means easy entrepreneurship, since there is land one can use to start a business not monopolised by companies. I can even talk about communism in the framework of capitalism: Communism = out-compete payed products with free ones. The more I think about it, the more left libertarianism and right libertarianism seem to be able to be the exact same thing.

I love factories, although I usually make them in voxel games (/s/worldsimulators).
