- Comment on Rent prices reach ‘insane’ levels across U.S. with no end in sight:
Completely unregulated market screws over customers yet again.
Colour me surprised...
- Comment on An apology for posting sources not approved here:
Nobody's going to download what might (or might not) be an mp4 file from a filehosting platform, without even knowing what it is while you claim it's "valid news".
- Comment on The New York Times Buys Wordle:
In case you can't read it because of the paywall.
I guess it's time to find another free alternative, specially considering this line:
"The company said the game would initially remain free to new and existing players."
- Comment on Man Sues Mercedes After Soft-Close Doors Chop Off His Thumb:
I'm calling BS too. I mean the man loses PART of his thumb (we don't even know which one btw) and suddenly becomes an impaired person that must be feeded to live? I broke my arm (right one and I'm right handed) when I was a kid and just learned to do stuff with the other hand. He can't?
- Comment on Activision Blizzard Hires Union-Busting Firm As Workers Start To Come Together:
That there are firms that actively work to bust unions is something mindblowing for me. Where I live not only you are free to join an union but your employer could get in serious trouble if they did something to avoid you joining one.
- Comment on Does Lemmy think it's justified to persecute those who seek the truth?:
Truth is Holocaust existed, even if you don't like it.
- Comment on What does Lemmy think of this man?:
I think anyone can be a piece of shit, whatever they are. Man, woman, black, white, Asian, Caucasian, Jewish, Christian, Muslim...
- Comment on Have you ever said "Damn i wished i lived in that time"?:
Several times and in several ages. I'd love to see how was the day in ancient Greece or Rome or Mesopotamia or Egypt. But I reckon I'd want to live as one of the "privileged" classes (not necessarily a "noble", but for example in the ancient Rome I'd like to live as a citizen).
- Comment on opinion: new studies show a booster dose is essential. Our policies should change accordingly:
And still, most people dying or ending in an ICU are those unvaccinated. Weird, huh?
- Comment on apparently reddit also has content gated behind an app on mobile now:
Everytime I need to use reddit (usually because a search on a specific matter gave me a reddit post as best result) I just use libredd.it instead of reddit.com.
E.g. if you have www.reddit.com/yourpost use instead libredd.it/yourpost.
- Comment on What is the reason that you joined lemmy?:
I'm, apparently, a person who should kill himself according to reddit standards. I was already tired of all the site's bullshit and usacentrism but this was the tipping point.
The day we all came to know that Aimee Challenor had become an admin and was protected by banning whoever mentioned the name, I wrote a post in a small sub that I was part of saying that this monster didn't deserve to be a reddit admin, let alone to have his pronouns respected (as many were asking because he was a male who transitioned to female). Apparently, a person like that deserves respect and I should be ashamed of saying otherwise (and kill myself while I'm on it).
It goes without saying, I told everyone to fuck off, used a script to edit all my post changing comments with nonsense posts (thrice), canceled my account and asked all my data to be deleted through GDPR. I found Lemmy shortly after and I can't be happier with the change.
- Comment on My personal 10/10 video games:
As many, in no particular order:
Breath of the wild
Final fantasy xiv
Command & Conquer Red Alert
I'm probably leaving some but I'm at work and can't think of any more
