Can you please explain why Linux appeals to you? I’ve had Ubuntu as my main operating system since 2014 but I still largely prefer Windows or OSX.

Stand up on college campuses never sounds like a good idea. Which is odd, because you'd think it'd be fantastic due to all of the young people that want to have a good time. Anyway, I know I'd have been in that 20%.

Thom Yorke says Radiohead plan to “do something really cool” with material from ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ by thomyorke in radiohead

I'm not sure "ignore" is the right verb, Yorke fully acknowledged the BDS movement and decided to play Israel anyway. I understand what you're saying though. Yorke's reasons are not dissimilar from why he still plays in the United States; he doesn't support the Trump administration yet believes that US citizens should not be bound by the politics of their government and deprived of a concert.

Radiohead's producer, Nigel Godrich stated:

I don’t believe in cultural boycotts. I don‘t think they’re positive, ever. And actually, I think that it‘s true to say that the people you‘d be denying [the music] are the people who would agree with you and don‘t necessarily agree with their government. So it‘s not a good idea.

Update: It'd appear that their plan is to sell really overpriced T-Shirts (40 euros and for a limited time only!) according to this post here. No thanks.

Their censorship has driven me away, yet I keep coming back to find myself livid again and again. The worst part for me is that even the least likely subreddits would have the tightest control- just one bad moderator will remove your discussion privileges.

I recall being in subreddit dedicated to a band, I'd made a post reflecting on the toxic community and horrid fanbase downvoting any opinions / political views against those of the band's singer. It seemed as though you couldn't listen to the music without subscribing to their politics, according to the groupthink. Of course, I was quickly silenced and warned by the mod that I'd be banned if I "kept it up".

Basically, Reddit admins and bad moderators can all go fuck themselves with a ten-foot pole. Sometimes I want to quit using social media altogether, but I'm afraid I couldn't at this point. Fear of missing out? I don't know.

I wonder how this will play out. Personally, I’m looking forward to not being or seeing someone else have their ideas hidden if they’re not in line with the groupthink. Bless you u/magnora7 and your triangle.

Was in the exact same boat as you. Planned on offing myself by shotgun until I saw this video. Then thought, "fuck that, this is horrible." And now I'm alive. Reddit banning WPD was a stupid mistake since many people no longer have access to video deterrents like this one.

I only watch TV for Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul. Even then, I just pirate them anyway since I can't stand sitting through commercials.
