The EFF and hate speech 

I don't think that opposition to corporate policing of speech online means that one must support hate speech or think it's OK. Thinking something's bad doesn't mean supporting all efforts that claim to be targeted at ending that thing. For example, if you think child molestation is bad, that doesn't mean you have to support the Arizona law that criminalizes accidentally touching your child's genitals while changing their diaper.

originally I wanted to see if I could use to set up a Q&A community for Tails support.

Technically I can, morally not.

I'm absolutely done with . I report to the foundation that the lead behind lemmy legitimizes genocides and supports authoritarian regimes.

The NLnet foundation grands lemmy 45.000 €.

Do not give support to people that legitamize genocides!

Do not support those that organize towards mass murder!

Do not support tankies!

I kind of like , but I'm bothered by the fact it is done by a tankie who deflects human-rights abuse as soon as it's done by an authoritarian regime he believes to be communist or anti-united-states.

To mass murder done by tankies he response with, "Imao sounds like we got the fuckin high score then u fuckin lib."

How is it possible that no one is bothered by that?
... I've never seen a discussion happening about that.

Reflecting politics behind lemmy (genocide is bad, ok?)
dev.lemmy.ml/post/37429
Dev behind lemmy justified genocide and disguised it as a joke (I call it dogwistle
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog-whis)

To reflect on that, I created a community at lemmy, even so it might just get deleted. dev.lemmy.ml/c/reflection_lemm

@felix

Well that depends on what kind of meme it is? If someone would share a meme about the far-right normalizing them - would that be ok too?

@syster

"Tankies are people who make excuses to justify the atrocities committed in the name of . Tankies crave power and work to create rigid hierarchies to amass that power. They support a totalitarian one-party state that governs all of society with an iron first. They defend forced labor, polluting mass-industry, population displacement, mass surveillance, genocide and brutal punishment for anyone who would speak out against the state or the new ruling class.

What is a "tankie"?

A tankie is anyone that defends authoritarian state-capitalist dictators and the atrocities they've committed and continue to commit.

Rant 

@ashwinvis @selea @syster @ChrisWere the solution is to realise there is no technical solution and its all part of what makes up doing software. you cant "just write code" if you want your program to be used by those socially messy human beings. were looking at decades of apolitical engineering and strategic separation of social and technical practice in the world of software... /rant++

@syster @andreas FWIW, I have left the PrivacyTools team. I’d be lying if I said it was over this, and it wasn’t. I left for personal projects and time management mostly. But I can say when weighing the decision to leave, the convo about Whonix and it’s association to Gab made the hard decision marginally easier.

Great Article on Optimal WiFi Settings 

“Wi-Fi is about sharing, not competing

In a congested environment it doesn’t matter if your access point is stronger than the neighbor’s. If your AP can receive other APs it will share the air time with them. All APs on the same channel will give other APs equal access to the spectrum.

Full power doesn’t increase coverage”

...what a weird thread

apparently calling fascists "fascists", is as bad as being fascist.
At least one person claims so.

Is suitable for a Q&A community similar to stackoverflow?
