    This is what the money you spend at Chick-Fil-A buys.

    Every time you patronize Chick-fil-A, some of that money you're spending is given by Chick-Fil-A's owners, The Cathys which they use to fund violent and deadly "christian" anti homosexuality legislation in the third world, after decades of doing the same exact thing in the US, which sees LGBTQ in Africa, Asia, and South America tortured and brutally murdered just for being gay. They've been doing this for decades.

    No chicken sandwich is worth the abuse and murder of gay people. Why don't you know this, and if you do know, why don't you care?

    An actual Block feature which prevents whichever blocked users and/or instances from continuing viewing, voting, or commenting on ones posts or comments. Presently the "Block" feature is only a masking feature which hides the blocker from seeing those instances and/or accounts that are blocked, but allows the blocked accounts/instances continued full access to view and vote on their profile, posts and comment histories, which is a recipe for abuse

    Shitpost trends get old fast and the joke isn't funny anymore as people try to hop on the band wagon for easy upvotes

    The most recent being the jeans trend. It was funny, I get why everyone enjoys a good shitpost. Some of the shitpost are top quality and fun for all to enjoy. But after a couple of days the shitposts just turn to shit posts and its just upvote farming low quality content and kills the joke.

    14k 4k movies now, check back two years after they're released, and people will be using codecs to produce files that are 50 times larger than the larges video files are currently. all processor, storage and memory needs are gaseous in that after a jump of ordinates, programmers will begin to utilize all available speed and capacity, and so it goes, the neverending cycle of invention, progression, and scarcity.

    people waiting for the bus need benches to sit on. benches are good, they're a public good. the removal of benches from city streets by towns like Berkley and Oakland isn't the cost of the benches, it isn't even the maintenance of the benches, it's the necessity of the city to prevent the homeless who use the benches as beds and camp around them which have seen them disappear and not be replaced, this article doesn't make mention of that, and without that understanding on why they've been purposefully removed

    2G, 3G, 4G, 5G mobile data made some sense as it represents generational leaps in the technology itself but then Xfinity wants to advertise "10g" internet...

    Comcast says it represents a 10 Gigabit cable internet network they are building (it doesn’t exist) so they are basically changing the meaning of the g from generation to gig to act like 10g is 5 generations better (or twice as fast)…or that they have a 10 gigabit network. Neither is accurate. It’s still just cable...

    @downpunxx@kbin.social avatar

    Comcast has reluctantly agreed to discontinue its "Xfinity 10G Network" brand name after losing an appeal of a ruling that found the marketing term was misleading. It will keep using the term 10G in other ways, however.

    ruh roh, this does NOT bode well for one of my favorite scifi shows on tv, whenever an originator leaves or changes direct control, the production suffers. every time.

    @downpunxx@kbin.social avatar

    no, what you read was there was a pause in production, and the cast had been sent home from eastern europe, at the time the reporting was it was due to "location issues", but it seems now that the studio and the show runner had major budget issues, and it looks like the studio won the fight, but it's most likely going to cost the series in vision and quality, which is paramount for this particular project.

    Dude, I've blocked half the user base of LEMMY, MASTODON and KBIN for being terrorist supporting antisemitic "genocide" accusing cunts.

    "Not immune"? lol This entire Fediverse platform is a sewer of Jew baiting, and Islamic terrorist support.

    There's no MOD on any of these platforms who looks out for, or defends the Jewish community, and it's a free for all and a feeding frenzy when anyone has the temerity to say Islamic terrorism is bad, and Israel has a necessity in defending it's millions of citizens against murder, rape, and evisceration by bloodthirsty Nazi Arabs vowed to kill Jews.

    I see you, and I support you, but the 95% of all the rest of the users in the Fediverse won't. This is digital pogrom, and all the kids are getting into it. It's a free way to attack Jews, but not see themselves as the same Nazi scum they've always been through antiquity.

    Doesn't seem like a "double standard" to me, when the overwhelming percentage of victims of domestic violence are women, who need actual assistance first, and education about root causes later, you know, to preserve their physical safety and save their and their children's lives.

    This is an actual standard based on decades of recorded experience.

    It is THE standard.

    The lemmy/kbin folks won't even code in a proper block feature, where mastodon devs have by default. On mastodon when you block another account they cease to exist, they can no longer see your posts or comments, can't vote on them, and can't comment under them. They're blocked.

    On lemmy/kbin if you "block" someone, it's simply a mask, as you no longer are able to see their posts or comments, but they continue to be able to see your posts, comments and are able to vote and comment under them, which obviously, is ripe for continued abuse, and history mining, from accounts that one wanted to block in the first place.

    Institutionalized racism, misogyny, homophobia, and white Christian separatism as party platform. No matter how "conservative" Republicans claimed to be, The Southern Strategy was the core value and singular driving force for the past 60 years. MAGA isn't a symptom, it's result

    Only the most foolish thought Republicanism was anywhere close to "mainstream" politics, or based on "conservatism", when it's only ever been what it now is, only hidden better. Since Trump somehow "won" in 2016, the masks are off.
