main document he drafted as a general code of conduct

main document in video, being solution to political divisions

honestly I think the solution document is pretty good, basically call people by whatever username they have, don't make echochamber's on groomercord or reddit and people should only be in those for genuine reasons, not so they can call themselves a "Rustacian" despite never using or contributing.




Making Truth Social Comply with the AGPL

Orange Site discussion

tl;dr: some leftoid bullied Truth Social into releasing their source code as per the AGPL which requires derivative source to be published, naturally he's very proud of himself

He also implies the code is shit and people should look for vulnerabilities (to report them responsibly, I'm sure)

Flagged comments:

(make an account and enable "show dead")

Could have done without all the left-wing whining.

The dispersal from left-leaning social media sites wasn't about needing a place to tell lies, moderation on them was ideologically driven and biased, much like the author of this piece.

Nobody likes to be censored, the left has just been doing the censoring for so long they've forgotten how it feels.

This comment and any others critiquing the author or supporting Truth Social will be flagged, effectively deleting them for anyone who doesn't toggle the flag on in settings. What a great site this is. Actually worse than reddit in this regard.

The tone of this article reads like the author expected this company to be evil incarnate, because they're Republican, and then they just...aren't.

Seems like there is some cognitive distortion going on where people are being vilified, and then that ends up not matching reality.

This is a recording from an official conference/workshop/whatever for xorg- something that is used by most Linux distributions for their desktop environment, so it's not some small or unknown project by any means.

I won't mention anything else, just skip around the video and tell me if you notice anything


It's a barbaric country. US support has created another blemish on US history. Was it worth it to ensure safe seas to enable global commercialism, which kept most of the world stable for decades? I do not, but I'll never be in charge either way.

Not just barbaric but also ignorant and tribalistic (I mean this literally), to an extent that most Western citizens don't get since they don't learn about the region's history. Yes, the ruling elites practice barbarism through the judicial system and legalized violence. But the population at large also shares in barbarism. For example, I was surprised (but not surprised) to see that nearly all Saudis deny the atrocities of October 7, like some kind of modern Holocaust denialism.

Hating jews never went out of fashion in the muslim world.

But degrading humans to subhuman status due to culture/ethnicity transcends the muslim world.

Anti-semitism is a European invention that had to be imported to the middle east. One could argue it never went out of fashion anywhere.

Let's not gloss over the absolutely appalling respect many of these societies have for human dignity. Public executions and flogging, discrimination and imprisonment based solely on gender, absolutely zero regard for freedom of conscience when it comes to matters of religion.

We are complicit (if not responsible). Accepted practice isn't an excuse for indifference but criticising your own country isn't a free pass to criticise the culture of others without challenging our culpability. If we sincerely want to help the citizens of these countries that we believe to be oppressed, we have options that we choose not to take. We could offer cultural asylum, give people a route to access our cultural ideals through immigration. We don't, though, because we only believe in human rights when it's convenient.

You, as an individual, may do your best to contribute to the betterment of the world, but when talking about society vs. society, you're glossing over far too many of our ills while ignoring the positives of the others.

Freedom of religion, individualism, capitalism, they aren't “good” or “right” they're just… different. The western individualism (seen most prominently in the U.S.) is not the majority culture, to many, even those who are just as “free” as any American, western cultural ideals are a step backward.

The way you perceive Islam is not the way it's perceived by Muslims in Muslim majority countries, it is not an oppression put upon them by religious zealots, it's a community that they participate in with a deep sense of pride and duty. For every Muslim in a Muslim-majority country who wants to break from their religion, there's an unsuccessful American struggling to survive, desperate to break free from the lonely American pursuit of individual success.

You can hate public executions, flogging, discrimination based on gender and sexuality, and you should, I do, but don't compare societies. We are not better, just different.

These tyrants only get away with repressing their citizens when people like Joe Biden give the first bump of approval due to fantasies about normalization against the will of the people.

The only thing the Gulf states have going for them is oil money and a good hub location on the Europe–Southeast Asia airline routes.

Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Bahrain, Qatar, they all remind me of that quote from King of the Hill—they are monuments to man's arrogance. Desert cities hitting 50+ °C air temperature at midday which means air conditioning everywhere; vapid luxury in the form of expensive garish cars, shopping malls, and weird buildings and monuments, all while local chiefs who oppose stupid and unrealistic white elephant vanity projects are executed in the back alley.

This is one reason why I would like more nuclear power: it'll take some of the money away from the Gulf.

Clearly you dislike gulf countries.

The points raised are a mixture of facts, fiction, jealousy and dislike.

You want them to boil in desert heat with some environmental appeal, while many countries pump the air full of pollution from factories or massive ICE cars

I haven't heard of back alley executions over there

I don't feel hate towards someone spending their money on 2 cars or a holiday house or whatever luxury shoes, or paint their house whatever color. Why does it annoy you so much.

Why hate on people with different taste, very strange

I get it's ok to hate on gulf countries without backlash more than hating on say Denmark

FWIW I'm not from there and don't live there


Microsoft reportedly begins showing full screen Windows 11 ad on Windows 10 PCs as end of support date looms

Windows 10 PCs that are in-eligible for Windows 11 are seeing full screen warnings about next year's end of support date.

The full screen prompt that is now appearing on some Windows 10 PCs thanks the user for their loyalty using Windows 10, and warns that this end of life (EOL) date is approaching. It also wastes no time advertising Windows 11, encouraging the user to learn more about how they can transition to a new Windows 11 PC. Notably, there's no button to tell the prompt to never show again.

Windows 10 PCs that are in-eligible for Windows 11 have two choices when it comes to wanting to remain secure beyond October 2025: Buy a new PC with Windows 11, or pay Microsoft for extended security updates on Windows 10. Pricing for these extended security updates hasn't yet been revealed for individual users, but business customers will have to pay $61 for the first year, per device.


I wonder if :marseyhillarybackstab: will intervene


I have been feeling the siren call of Linux recently, convince me **not** to switch from Windows

I usually don't game on this laptop, and even when I do, it seems like the games I am interested in are available on there. The only thing I can think of is that I have multiple tabs open in my browser that I plan to one day read. I would lose them if I did it.

The HN comments get to the core of this:

A moderator on Vaxry's groomercord changed a transgender person's pronouns from "they/them" to "who/cares". Vaxry did nothing about it, and even supported this change, stating that the person was making too big a deal about their pronouns

lmao based

Also someone posted screenshots from his Groomercord where he pings everyone asking for hentai:
