    They just want to make it hard for right-wingers to use Lemmy. It's a shame they're okay with dysfunctional software because they want to exclude people of certain political beliefs.

    Lemmy is doing this.


    I know of the dev instance and chapo.chat, but I'm sure there are a few others.

    It also has the odd problem of wanting to be decentralized and federated, but then making choices like this that hardcode and centralize decisions as much as possible.

    > this is the year that decentralized social media will become mainstream

    I really hope you're right, but I am also very skeptical. For every centralized platform that a community is cut off from, another centralized platform opens to accept them.

    And then you have decentralized platforms that specifically build in censorship in the stupidest places [0] in an effort to stave off "rightoids." It seems most of the people building the decentralized platforms aren't actually interested in the merits of open communication or free thought, but rather pushing their inconsistent, amorphous identity politics bullshit down everyone's throats (and I'm saying this as a communist). They bring their ruling-class-approved "us vs them" mentality into the platforms they are building and try to force participants to "bend the knee" or be banished. Sure, you can run your own instance, but why would you on a platform where you're not sure where you stand? Decentralized social media platforms will need to exercise a bit more tolerance before they see mass adoption.

    I'm excited for things like Holochain though, which might help to turn everything on its head.

    Maybe Uganda (and other countries) will start thinking about replaceing US-run social media with home grown solutions.

    Given that open source and federated replacements for Twitter[1], Instagram[2], Reddit[3], YouTube[4] etc exist, this would not be a massive undertaking.

  • Is Rust suitable for web development?
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-01-06
    We've been using rust and actix for the back-end for our reddit alternative lemmy. I won't go back to any other language for a web server, we never go above 1-2% CPU, and the memory footprint stays small since we don't have to deal with a garbage collector. The typing and error systems have been good enough that I won't go back to another language.

  • SISEA bill - An existential threat to all porn subreddits, /r/gonewildaudio included.
    That's great! Soundgasm should be fine even if this passes, but Reddit would almost certainly kick us off in a blanket ban on all porn subreddits, even if the law doesn't apply to just audio and text. If that happens we'd need to self-host a lemmy instance if we want to keep gonewildaudio alive.
