Probably got deleted. That was a problem on the original sub on reddit aswell, which is why I wrote the video archive bot. Might bring that back at some point for this sub. IIRC the catbox owner has said they don't like gore content or something like that.

(Just tested one of the catbox links in my history, https://files.catbox.moe/p69q7s.mp4, that still works, so it's not the whole site.)

Harvard Study Shows YouTube Promotes Pedophilia to People Who Watch Erotic Videos by d3rr in Internet

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

Disagree, people have been complaining to YT for years about this issue. If the issue is so bad that advertisers have to proactively boycott the platform, there's something seriously wrong at YT.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying though. They can't fix it because they don't know how to. Their algorithm is essentially a black box like most machine learning systems are (that's what they're using, right?). And they're not about to ditch it because it makes them money, and the backlash isn't big enough yet. Might be soon, with all those advertisers pulling out, who knows.

Disagree, lots of these videos of kids have millions of views and I believe ads running.

They do? Alright, fair enough, didn't know that.

The most common type of evil:"extensions" by Snow in whatever

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

When a nation entering the state of war, most people would view another person is the extension of themselves in the same nation, view the successful killing as the winning of themselves. If someone says: "It's all about the military industrial complex, they are the true winners!"People would just attack this person.

I think that's the same thing with people becoming super possessive and even violent over sports teams. I never understood it for the longest time - how can you become so wound up over them winning or losing if you had nothing to do with it? I would understand if you bet money on that team or something. But like this? I think it's the same thing as you said above, associating themselves with some team to be able to feel good about the achievements of others? Something like that, at least.

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

Is this supposed to be said evidence? I'm not buying it. This is only YouTube, not all of "the media", and even then, they don't know what the hell their algorithm is doing (this is not the first time of that being the case), or they would have already fixed it. They're not doing it on purpose. What do they have to gain from pushing pedophilia to normal people? Nothing, it will just cause backlash against them (like here!). And the people who want to watch this stuff of course won't complain, but there's so few of them that it doesn't get YT any significant ad revenue or anything. You can't turn someone into a pedophile (especially not by recommending them content on YouTube), if that's what you were going for, just like you can't cure pedophilia. You're either born with it, or not.

Yeah, you can definitely play a lot of PC games on Linux now, especially with SteamPlay/Proton (or Wine and DXVK). Even games like GTA V or Overwatch.

Of course, that doesn't mean all games run on Linux, but most of those that I want to play do. Sometimes you have to fiddle around with it to get it to work, though.

Most old games you can definitely play in 4K (often even better than modern games since they're not as graphically intensive; for example I play Thief 2 at 4k but have to turn the settings down to like 2k, sometimes even 1080p, for for example Black Mesa). Problem is the models and textures, if that bothers you.

This is something I wouldn't fix on the server side, since as you said it would potentially break other stuff way worse for everyone, for something which essentially only happens for OP (or does it?). That seems like overkill. Probably better to figure out what the problem is on his side, like starting with disabling the adblocker (although I kinda doubt that's it, since why would it be configured to block the unsub button on this site by default. Doesn't hurt to try though), or trying a different browser to make sure it's not some addon that's breaking the site

So obviously this whole thing is supposed to reduce discrimination. But instead it replaces it with discrimination against another part of the population, which in this case isn't bound to something like education, and instead factors like skin color, country of origin, etc. And this is in my opinion even worse, since there's no solution for this at all (well, except for abolishing it), as opposed to the ability factor, which can be solved in other ways. Since obviously, the only one that this actually benefits, are, well, the minorities. Not the companies (who basically decide to intentionally choose the worse candidate over a better one), or the people with a good education who are getting their application declined because of factors that they can't control.

Not sure if this one is the earliest, since I don't have any point in time to link it to, but it is one of the earliest ones because back then we still had a VCR (I was born in 2001, so towards the end of the VCR era). I remember fucking with our VCR, opening it up because it looked cool with the parts moving inside, and (inevitably) breaking it at some point. I do think we had a DVD player back then, so it wasn't that much of a big deal. Either that or my dad fixed it. I don't recall.

Out of a total of 37864 posts, it still needs to download 269, 23434 could be downloaded, and the rest are either dead links or it doesn't know how to extract the video from the page. So it should be done in a few hours, then I still need to filter out garbage (dead links but where it still downloaded something, like a text file, or stuff that is spam/unrelated)

Of course, I can't host all that on MEGA since it's currently 250GB in size, so I'll probably put up a torrent with all the videos, and additionally set up a page on my website with links to the original videos for people who don't want to download all that (since I don't want to host all those videos directly on my site).

It'll be listed on this page when it's done, I guess: https://therealfarfetchd.dev/wpd/

Oh, yeah, you're right about that. I tried with a different PM thread, the way it works is very weird. You can still get your PMs deleted if they're a response to a PM, since if you delete a PM it deletes all children as well. Now that I know about this, it bugs me too haha

You can delete PMs though? Example: https://i.imgur.com/b5wHhSf.png

Or are you talking about something else.

I have a bunch of archived videos here but it's only the ~2000 most recent ones. Complete archive coming... eventually, downloading 250GB of videos takes a while.

I recommend downloading the full-archive.zip and extracting it somewhere if you have the space for it, the post list that is a normal HTML page that you can just click stuff in instead of a directory listing.

By the way, is there any documentation of API differences between this and reddit (for example, the vote system), or a sub where I can ask API questions? https://saidit.net/dev/api doesn't have updated documentation. Looking for stuff in the code is tedious, especially when it's not in an IDE.

EDIT: oh wait, it kinda seems to? Still calls them upvotes/downvotes though. Maybe it isn't that outdated after all.

Thanks! You can look at progress here: JRAW-saidit Slide-saidit

So far I've just ported JRAW to use saidit's API, but it's not tested yet at all
