When does programming (alone) get cumbersome for you?
For me, it's when I start prototyping. I lose the little amount of interest I had.

linhtran.eu - A PeerTube instance for the Vietnamese blogger Linh
It's nice to see Vietnamese PeerTube videos and users.

What communities do you think should be on mander.xyz?
I think there should be a community for fighting pseudoscience. The term pseudoscience has been perverted to the point that people can't discern science from pseudoscience; so people have a harder time getting good information. --- neurology is cool AF and should have a community too.

How do you find serious forums that are actually good?
I can't tell what forums are good (or bad).

I have no idea how the U.S lived for so long… it should have died in the 1800s.

Sometimes it feels like the U.S. is a land full of hostages.

It is a land of hostages.

  • Healthcare is absolute trash. If you even manage to pay for it, insurance companies decide the policy. They can force you to visit one doctor.

Healthcare workers are treated like trash and feed disinformation to the point that you might have better luck trying to resolve them yourself.

  • Disabled people are ignored.

  • Tons of our food is poisoned with boiled vegetable oils, (high fructose) corn syrup, and added sugar. (it’s probably intentional; the corporations want to reduce the effectiveness of revolutionary movements.)

Don’t forget: You have to pay the state to emigrate from the U.S.

https://redd.it/v8l8vi These people keep bringing up "mArKeT sHaRE" 1. Linux is free. How would it get market share? 2. It's quite difficult to get an accurate "market share" since user-agents can be faked. EDIT: I wonder if Microsoft are making anti-Linux accounts to try and hamper Linux.

Don't use Reddit for Linux or BSD related questions
The upvote-downvote feature is the worst mechanic to plague social media.

Why did SDL change from LGPL?
Apparently SDL-org changed the license of SDL from the LGPL (a copyleft license) to zlib (a permissive license).^[[Older Releases](https://libsdl.org/release/) (Check the license in versions before SDL2 and 1.3.)] I don't get why SDL-org would make the license change; unless if it's for popularity.

I’m unsurprised this happened at all, now that I understand capitalism from a Marxist point of view. I don’t think Google needs to do anything to Mozilla (both Foundation and Corporation); capitalism will work it’s magic and it will just become a corporation that utilizes it’s flagship product (Mozilla Firefox) for profit, not liberation from the corporate internet.

We need to use established browsers that aren’t made by capitalists: Lynx, Links, surf, eww. (Servo is experimental.)

Are there any Marxist-Leninist instances?
I can't seem to find any ML PeerTube instances. If there is no ML PeerTube instance, then that could be a potential Lemmygrad project. [Also someone made a good point about giving tons of initial storage space.](https://lemmygrad.ml/post/222727/comment/173371)

Thoughts on trait-selection abortion?
Bad idea to ban trait-selected abortion, IMO; but I would just allow it as some people would just do abortion on their own anyway. This issue can't just be boiled down to ableism; it is a large reason for the potential abortions. Ableism is a symptom of capitalism. However, some people don't have the resources to take care of a(n) (autistic) child; some persons got raped and they got pregnant. Is it "ableist" to abort an autistic child then?

nobody has a fucking clue what Ukraine has been doing to its own people since 2014. Google Maidan Coup and Minsk Agreement for starters. 14,000 Ukranian civilians killed since then, by guess who? Bet you didn’t guess Ukraine.

Zelensky is not the good guy here, and neither is the US, and of course Putin is trash too. It’s never as cut and dry as the bullshit, whitewashed, heavily redacted ‘news’

I really need to stop trying to think in good-guy-bad-guy conflicts; also I agree.

How do you deal with dental health?
I didn't brush my teeth as a child and teen because I had energy issues and I struggled to actually do them; I still struggle to do it today. I rarely floss because it seems like a lot of work for seemingly little gains. I got plaque again after getting teeth cleaned some weeks ago. I guess my teeth is screwed...

What is your opinion on sex work?
My opinion is that sex work should be legal. It would enable involuntary virgins to get a *good* sex experience for payment; they will be guaranteed a good sex experience with a sex worker: no harassment, good education, and a fun time. Sex work gets shamed by ~~people~~ puritans because of payment for sex and it's "sinful"; yet these same ~~persons~~ puritans get and have sex for free out of "passion" or marriage; they also discriminate against minorities in sec. EDIT: Apparently there is an implied difference between sex work and prostitution. I mean sex work. EDIT 2: I messed up the writing of my post. My real opinion is located in [this comment](https://lemmy.ml/post/266235/comment/181850): > Oof. I didn't realize there was way more exploitation than just sex traffickers. It totally makes sense though; sex trades are a product of capitalist exploitation and the existence of private property. (Naturally under communism, the prevalence of sex trades would be heavily reduced.) > It seems like I couldn't communicate my ideas properly beforehand. I don't want people in the sex trade to be criminalized; I want pimps and johns to be criminalized. > Only a few hours ago: I wanted to support a sex trade industry that didn't involve rapes or rely on economic coercion. I just wanted disabled people, who keep getting discriminated out of sex,^[[*Sexual Ableism*](https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/sexual-ableism/)]^[[*Dating With Disability: How to Rise Above Sexual Ableism*](https://radiantabilities.com/rise-above-sexual-ableism/)]^[[*Dating with Disability: Choose Your Dreams Over Sexual Ableism*](https://radiantabilities.com/dreams-not-sexual-ableism/)] to be able to feel better about their lives; a lack of sex can cause mental health issues in some people (even though this shouldn't happen). (However, having sex probably won't fix the issue, it will just hide the problems until later). Now I feel like shit...

Ugh. A hypocritical puppet. Nazi scum needs to die there already.

He needs to be deepfaked again.

Is that the actually zelensky account? I think it’s misspelled.

Why haven't corporations bribed their way through copyleft (licenses) yet?
I thought companies could bribe through the legal system, so why not licenses?

I feel that barcodes (usually QR Codes) are underutilized; I forgot about them until I saw [this post.](https://lemmy.ml/post/260138) * I think barcodes could potentially be used to quickly transmit preset information to war victims. * They could be used to transmit information on platforms that censor: Sharing Lemmy posts on Reddit (even though it's currently redundant due to federation). (I just thought of this.)

This is a based take, critical thinking and reason has fallen out the arse during this war.

Critical thinking was rarely even there. Critical thinking is not a skill that is properly taught or promoted in education systems (to make people easy to control); so people often forget to critically think about major events.

From the beginning I had my doubts about this, for which I was vilified by people around me. I’d also be the first to apologize and say I’m wrong if it all turns out to be true.

I’m gonna guess they’re liberals.

I wish a lot more people stay critical of what’s happening.

Critical thinking is difficult; because it’s counterintuitive to the human mind.

Also, critical thinking is not a skill that is properly taught or promoted in education systems; so people often forget to critically think about major events.
