Here in the US specifically, 'Organic' is just more green washing, big Ag market cornering, advertising/propaganda dribble. The governing body of the certification and labeling, the Usda, has made it rather challenging for small farmers to obtain it let alone maintain compliance in order to keep the label. Yet, organic big Ag is where we are seeing the consistent ecoli and other relative outbreaks. When it comes to pesticides, if you do your homework, you will see a plethora of them that are OMRI compliant that definitely should not be.

The kind of Bots in question should only be able to be banned based on consensus from the entire forum, period. Modifications should be welcomed and expected when it comes to triggers. Blindspot is entirely acceptable IMHO but we are a global community and need to respect the possible interpretation as some something plausibly different.

My vot le is NO to mods being able to ban bots outside of it being through community consensus.

I don't see php dying per se... Its been a major part of what powers the internet for a long time, LAMP has moved primarily to mariadb but python hasnt overtaken php yet. I do agree that overall python is a better language, but php is wonderful despite its pitfalls. Specifically, old folgeys like me that have been using it for 20 years can use it in ways that keep it relevant. ;)

Projects small and large! Some languages are for/good for some things others arent. Learn the difference.If you have a grasp on html and css learn the basics of vanilla javascript, from there server side languages, PHP, or fucking .NET. You can use python in that respect but i think it shines more outside of web dev. Maybe thats just me? Just pick some projects and start building!!! The specialization of labor shouldnt be a deterrent to your own education. That shit creates bullshit hierarchies and stifles individual development. get your code on!

I spend to much time on "what ifs." Its fucking crippling. i learned it from my mother. Always be precautionary, even when she bailed me out of Orleans Parish Prison for pissing on the oldest church in the nation i was thinking about what i hadnt done to make it worth it. Or when she organized a caravan to pick up a few dozen of us in Miami after the WTO protest. I was angry with her again. She was simple, or it seamed, disabled single mother with two poster children for welfare. I know she didnt have the money to make this happen, where the hell did she get it? She said we were feed and bills were paid so it doesnt matter and applauded me for standing up to "them." Its been 3 months. since she has passed. I still worry about everything.

It was was well meaning. And in absolutely no way calling anyone out. Under capitalism I see many forms of illegalism as revolutionary acts, and fully support theft from corporations, not only as the monetary blow against corporate bottom lines, but also as a survival mechanism. If it gets your adrenaline pumping and the endorphins flowing, even better!

I read a lot of what's posted here though I never participate. As for raddle as a whole, i moderate several anarchist centric and tech oriented forums.

Stay cool ya'll!

Um.... Smh... Next question.

Fuck it I will entertain this for a short time. Wait, the fuck I will! People that believe this never found God and aren't capable of understanding science. It's not their fault they are searching for answers and no that God isnt relevant so they grab onto pseudo sciences to give them some kinda enlightened platform to stand on. Frustrating and irrational.

I've been looking through this for about a week...i did spot a couple of Stephan Molyneux (fucking ancaps) videos. So be warned and cautious. Perhaps we should message the collector to remove these? Otherwise it's been a great source.

Don't generalize, as there are 'white' people that are accomplices and not merely allies or the opposition. With that said, you are absolutely correct that more 'violent' (its not violence it is self defense) means are necessary. But try to build community at the same time. Read up on assata Shakur, huey Newton, Malik Rahim, and the black panther party as a whole for inspiration.

This could be really cool for noobs, introduce them xss, sql injection and various doxing techniques. It would also be rad to have categorical tags for hardware hacking, social engineering, etc...
