Yes, it is. See my above response to the ableist language:

Please, read the links and consider our viewpoint before dismissing it out of hand. We've had a lot of discussions on raddle about these terms and ideas to reach our rules/views/consensus.

Hi There,

It seems you are inadvertently using ableist slurs. You're new here so please allow me to explain nicely.

See this wiki:

Also, this wiki on "free speech":

Especially this part of the free speech wiki:

The "freedom" to scapegoat, demonize and demean people who are different from you really stands in direct contradiction with anarchy. Discriminating against people based on ability, race, gender or sexuality creates authority. It makes you an authoritarian. Your rhetoric directly alienates the people who belong to the groups you're choosing to look down on in disgust and present as less-than human. By using demeaning language to chastise marginalized people for their perceived inadequacies, you're upholding normative social roles, creating classes and subclasses and strengthening the authoritarian power structures that directly oppress any people that belong to minority groups.

For example, by using the word "f*ggot" as an insult, you effectively cast gay people as being worthy of scorn and derision. You assert authority over everyone who isn't heterosexual and make life incredibly difficult for people that don't meet the normative standards you've helped construct to maintain the social dominance of heterosexuals.

While I understand "crazy" is in the common vernacular, it can be very triggering to people who may have had to experience oppressive bullshit. There's nothing quite as terrible as being told you are "crazy" by someone who is using it to control, abuse, or oppress you. Please reconsider your usage of this word.

Thanks, Bloodrose

yup, lemmy's code looks like total shit, and the user experience is just abysmal. I tried really hard the past week or so, to give it a fair chance, but it's just literally unusable, especially over tor.

full-JS frontend, who the fuck thought that was a good idea? smh

postmill is such a more performant and mature codebase, if they had any sense at all they'd switch. they won't.

EDIT: after using postmill for ten more minutes and continuing to have a significantly better experience, i'd like to stress just how much more pleasant it is than lemmy. a lot.

The only condition we have is that tankeis don't get modded because we've had bad experiences with them destroying raddle forums in the past.

I mean maybe this attitude is why they don't want to come here? I think it'd make sense for leftist devs of all viewpoints to work on contributing to Postmill, but why would MLs want to contribute if they can't even be mods on the main Postmill site?

God, I fucking hate the Economist. When I was young and dumb and shacked up with a rich dude, I had a subscription. Leading up to the Iraq war, they were starting to beat the war drums. They had one cover that said "Why We Should Go to War in Iraq." At the same time, they were sending me subscription renewal notices. I nearly ripped the cover off, painted it yellow, and mailed it. But I realized no one would fucking care so I didn't.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And it’s plotting ways to mobilize the power of hundreds of teens on TikTok who reserved tickets for Trump’s recent Oklahoma campaign rally and took credit for sinking the event by artificially inflating the crowd count before it began.

If this is actually what Biden campaign strategists are thinking about then yeah he's fucked.
