What did the Viet people ever do to you, @yorma?

Vietnamese people must be pretty passive if you have to go all the way back to 2019 to find a case of organized crime.

Yea, it’s in South Korea. I had the chance to go, but didn’t. Regret is strong, never going to say no to something like this again ㅠㅠ

Can’t believe you brought up Seo Dan, I’m about to cry lmao. That show fucked me up. Excited to forget about it then watch it again.

What happened to Seo Dan was gut wrenching. My girlfriend actually just came back from a musical a few hours ago of the show. Here’s a never-seen-before online pic :D

My bad, dropped the words “do not condone”. Comment is also sarcasm. Read again now.

Not gonna lie, WiFi and AC on public transport is bless. But yeah more vehicles is a compounding investment.

Thankfully people are venting in a controllable fashion online. It’s important we do not condone acts like Jan 6 or other uprisings that threaten the status quo.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this community. You take out the politics and you’ll be left with… Nothing.

There’s some great instances like Beehaw that might be more up your ally

Don’t strive for equality, strive for your goals. If your goals are an abstract idea you’re kinda weird dude

For me, I put my pride aside and watched K-Dramas.

After watching Crash Landing On You (Torrent Link), a story about a South Korean woman who finds herself in North Korea, my life was a complete emotional wreck for months. If I ever get Alzheimer’s, I’ll be happy knowing I can rewatch this continuously.

What are you glad you did before you died?
"debated more NATO shills/tankies on Lemmy" probably won't be on that list

This data can equally be read as “there are a lot more cars than pedestrian/cyclists/moped/etc and if we increase those numbers, the deaths will likewise increase there”

I’d rather it this way than on Reddit where nobody knows shit

As I learned quickly from /c/IsTaiwanACountry, Lemmy.ml isn’t here to create definitive lines and watch people walk up to them. They copy this policy on trolling, which sums it up to “Don’t piss us off” or “Don’t make us waste time moderating”.

Is it fair? No, but that’s not the point of this instance.

Nice, will I learn to call everything racist and fail to back it up 5 times in a row there? Despite being reminded in each reply that you’re trying to prove something is racist?

Congrats, you linked another 10 posts, none of which prove the banned guy was racist. Over half the posts you linked weren’t even from the banned guy. Stop wasting my time, you’re making me think very poorly of commies.

Also, for future reference, one strong point is a lot better than dumping links (or in this case, dumping a link to links to images that weren’t even relevant to the point at hand, which is you are yet to provide any proof Masterofballs is posting racist content).

I’m confused by what you’re trying to say. But I’m not an American, no

Congrats on proving both my comments for the second post in a row. Also grats on being queer? Anyways, if you’re so confident you’re right, feel free to actually reply with links of the guy being racist (instead of just saying you did), because the only post I see you doing that has 3 links to… Content not posted by the guy and non-racist content.

Not that anyone found an example, but 10$ costs more than a shitcoin transaction fee

If you’re an ML like you’ve stated in the past, you know why and don’t need me to explain to you why fascism is unacceptable and how they leverage liberal discourse to gain footing.

This is exactly why non-MLs look at half the commies and shake their heads. If all you scream is “fascist” and literally refuse to explain, then all we gather is “They call people they don’t like fascists”. Then commies get mad the rest of us “can’t see” the proper way.

To hear incorrect views without rebutting them and even to hear counter-revolutionary remarks without reporting them, but instead to take them calmly as if nothing had happened. This is a sixth type.

How does this not counter your first point? If you don’t practice what you believe in when it actually matters, you don’t have beliefs, you have hobbies.

Edit: This thread has gone on for many comments. Read them for a laugh. Basically they never proved the original guy is racist, only got increasingly frustrated. Which is honestly surprising, since I believe the guy is probably a racist PoS, but all I asked for was proof of it.

I read every comment in this thread and a Wikipedia page 3 times before finally understanding it. That is impressive, kudos for the post

Snap actually sucks. This isn't even a meme.
Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap. Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues. * Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work * I get *notifications* for pending updates * Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.

Anyone else enjoying the higher gas prices?
Less people can afford to drive is a long term catalyst for making sustainable cities. A surprise, but a welcome one! (Yes, buses and subways use gas, but not as much as 12 individual cars going to the same location)

MIT and BSD are cuckold licenses
I would say "change my mind" but I won't. I spent 5 years believing \*maybe\* I was missing something about them, but no, these are licenses selected 49.5% of the time for the wrong reason, 49.5% of the time because the original project devs were cucks, and 1% of the time because they're trying to replace a corporate dominant proprietary solution (which is the only valid usecase for these licenses). If you're a FOSS dev, have some self respect and choose a proper license.

Looking for an Open Source program to automatically seed latest project torrents
Hey Lemmy - I was downloading the KDE Neon edition ISOs yesterday night and noticed there weren't many seeders for the nightly edition. It gave me the idea to write a program that automatically grabs the .torrent file for lots of FOSS projects and throws them on my seedbox every night, but before I reinevent the wheel, does something like this exist? Qbittorrent has a Python API so the code isn't complicated, but with a bit of Google-foo I wasn't able to find something like this already, which kind of blows my mind tbh. Does Lemmy know?

What are some good charities to donate to on behalf of someone for Christmas?
My family is fairly well off, and nobody needs anything. We have a poor tradition of buying gifts nobody needs. I've spoken with some of my family and we're going to change this to make Christmas about giving to those in need. Unfortunately, everyone has slightly different interests and I'm having a hard time coming up with impactful charities for various family members. **Does anyone know of some (global or Canadian) charities in these categories?** * Environment * Animals * Human Rights/Poverty * Technology Some charities I've got so far: * [The Water Project](https://thewaterproject.org/) (Human Rights) * [Software Freedom Conservancy](https://sfconservancy.org/donate/) (Technology) * [Godot](https://godotengine.org/donate) (Technology) * [Doctors Without Borders](https://www.doctorswithoutborders.ca/donate) (Human Rights) Any suggestions appreciated (:. Share this post with your family if you want to start something like this too!

I have a $50 prepaid Mastercard. Where is a place I can donate it to open source?
The Mastercard is in CAD and I don't have a Paypal account. Where's the easiest place I can donate it? Edit: Donated it to KDE through Paypal without registering an account

Anyone know where I can buy a longer engine oil stick?
My check oil light is on, but my engine oil stick doesn't reach the oil. I want to check how much oil I have though, so it's not very helpful. Google says just add more oil, but I don't know how much oil I already have. Can someone tell me what to do here?

Hey AskLemmy! I created some community icons. Which one do you like most?
I noticed for one of the largest communities, there was no icon! It looks strange in the Communities view. Anyways, I mocked these up trying to use the Lemmy logo. If you like any of them but it's not quite right, I can adjust it - or if you have a new idea, I'm down to try that too! 1. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/Gj6OjKWhlG.png) 2. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/HjhzxLRPLF.png) 3. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/4Ld7dLtMFH.png) 4. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/mbCyBabPkl.png) 5. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/mir2yvspyi.png)

What are some easy ways to use your computer to "Give Back" to the FOSS community?
I've always wanted to run as many programs as possible that "Give back" to awesome developers who create things. **I've got a few, but I'm looking for more.** **Bandwidth Consuming** * I2P [Node](https://github.com/i2p-zero/i2p-zero) * Seed my favorite shows * [IPFS Cluster](https://collab.ipfscluster.io/) **Linux** * [pkgstats](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/pkgstats) for Arch, `popularity-contest` for Debian (& derivatives) * KDE [telemetry](https://lemmy.ml/post/77859) * Golem [node](https://handbook.golem.network/provider-tutorials/provider-tutorial) **Other** * [Snowflake](https://snowflake.torproject.org/) browser extension ***** If I can get enough of these idle things, I want to one day create a website where you answer a few basic questions about your OS/Hardware and it suggests which of these you can do based in tiers (i.e. how easy it is to set up, how big of an impact you have). What are some other ones I could add?

Work for a development company? Ask the CTO to sponsor an Open Source Project!
![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/H28RfzsjVs.png) I work for a small gaming company (~10 employees) based out of Toronto, and always wanted to contribute more (financially) to open source projects. There's 2 key ones that come to mind - [Ruffle](https://github.com/ruffle-rs/ruffle), an open source ActionScript (Flash) reimplementation (so you can play Flash games in your webbrowser again!), and [Godot](https://godotengine.org/), an engine that makes creating games as easy as creating 3D models in Blender. I've pitched the idea before, but nothing as concrete or easy as just dropping a link in Slack. **The best part about recurring donations is it keeps it on your company's mind**, meaning they're more likely to donate in the future! It's always easier for a company to fork out cash than yourself. Give it a shot! Most Open Source devs who need funding would love it :)

What does it take to be in the "Trending Communities" in the sidebar?
Is it recently active? Percentage growth? Can consistently active communities be in the "Trending" section for a long time? Thanks!
