I did ban + remove content, but the remove part doesnt federate yet.

It should be centered at least. Also now I get a popup about “websocket disconnected” whenever I reload the page.

Or just create more instances, and skip the drama ;)

Lemmy has never been about “free speech” and I dont know what made you think that.

I made a longer comment here. If you still dont know what the problem is after reading that, then I really dont know how to explain it to you.

Thanks for confirming. I will take this opportunity to ban you from /c/worldnews, because of your hostile behaviour there. This is something I should have done long ago. The main reason I didnt is that I didnt want to give the impression that you were targeted because of our political disagreements. But the fact is that you are causing too much trouble. Take this as a warning, if you keep being hostile to other users, you will get a site ban.

I would like to use lemmy.social, but iirc it was either already taken or crazy expensive to buy.

PSA: Sharing lemmy.ml links on sites where they are blocked

Some websites block lemmy.ml links, for example Facebook as you can see in the screenshot below. …

And why is that? Do you not think that everyone is entitled to their own opinion?

So you would say that your opinion is superior to mine, because people in your surroundings agree with you? It might surprise you to hear this, but people in my surroundings also agree with me, but for me that isnt a reason to claim superiority. Would you really prefer if Lemmy was an echo chamber where everyone thinks just like you?

You talk a lot about authoritarian countries, but simply dismiss anyone who disagrees with your opinion, as if you are somehow infallible. I think the idea that everyone should think exactly like you is in fact much more authoritarian. Dont you believe that everyone is entitled to their own opinion? Or is that only if they agree with you?

I think thumbnails are fetched by the server, not in the browser. So most likely it is related to the sites you are linking, maybe they blocked lemmy.ml, or iframely doesnt support them.

Lemmy is the software project, lemmy.ml is one instance where it is running. There are also other instances.

I dont understand, you are using Lemmy right now. Welcome!

You need to search for https://lemmy.ml/comment/50569 (removing the post/xxx/` part). The direct link to comment is behind the three dot button.

FYI there is a reply from @Salamander@mander.xyz which you wont see from your instance, you have to view the thread on lemmy.ml (https://lemmy.ml/post/61273).

I made a change yesterday to avoid this problem, and make the allowlist less strict.

That also makes sense. I didnt want to make the issue more complicated, but you could mention that in a comment there.

I dont think that is the right way to go for an open source project, it will just lead to frustration for new users. Its better to make the details public, then everyone can participate in the discussion if the rules make sense.

I think it would be good to have a simple rule, you need to make at least 5 comments before you can create a post. Could be overall or in each community, and configurable.

Statement on Politics of Lemmy.ml

Recently there have been some discussions about the political stances of the Lemmy developers and site admins. To clear up some misconceptions: Lemmy is run by a team of people with different ideologies, including anti-capitalist, communist, anarchist, and others. While @dessalines and I are communi…

Testing for Lemmy Federation Release

After almost a year of hard work implementing ActivityPub support on Lemmy, it is finally done! Anything that works here on dev.lemmy.ml, also works over federation between different instances (with one notable exception, community mods have to be on the same instance as the community for now). …

NLnet funding, and Lemmy v0.7.0 with new image hosting!

Let’s start with the biggest news first: Lemmy is receiving funding from the NLnet foundation! The funding is for a total amount of 45.000 €, which will allow /u/dessalines and me (/u/nutomic ) to work on Lemmy full-time for at least half a year. …

This is an Antifa instance

Just a public service announcement…
