SourCreamAndGarlic,

It’s cherry-picking if you only use one dictionary. It’s present in the Merriam-Webster dictionary.

www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/rooves

Ultimately I’d never use it. It’s archaic and not in common enough use generally to feel good to use. Similar to monkies as the archaic version of monkeys.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

In some cases, communities are set to be moderator-only, which is to say that only moderators are allowed to post in them. As well, we want to avoid community squatting by power moderators (think 20+ communities with no interactions) who create communities so they can keep controlling them later on when people suddenly start using them. This was the bane of Reddit’s existence, and something we don’t want to have propagate over to Lemmy.ca under any circumstances.

Regardless, this is why we have the 5 day window for moderators to respond to let us know what’s going on, so we can get that context. Ultimately we don’t want to reassign a community unless it’s obvious that the user moderating it has no interest in actively moderating, or is holding onto it in bad faith.

Thanks for contributing. These are perspectives we want to keep in mind.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

If you’re the creator of the community you should have a trash icon on Web that lets you delete the community.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

Please note that even if you have no moderation experience, we can run you through the basics of how to moderate a community on Lemmy. Don’t let a lack of experience stop you from applying!

SourCreamAndGarlic,

@Spaduf (on their other account) and @Veraticus have been made mods of the community.

Patriarchy theory is not valid theory of men’s struggles

“Patriarchy” is a floating signifier. It has no clear meaning. Indeed, it means whatever is convenient for it to mean in any given context. “Patriarchy” is furthermore a thought-terminating cliche. Instead of carefully thought out social analysis the Patriarchy is deployed as a non-explanation....

SourCreamAndGarlic,

The only moderator of this community hasn’t been active in over a month. We’ve put up a Moderators Wanted post for that reason.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

If a moderator isn’t listed it’s an Admin action. We removed a few posts that violated the community rules while we were waiting for the community owner/moderator to get back to us.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

A good section of the process is in a Class 4/5 drought. We are in desperate need of some consistent rain (without lightning).

SourCreamAndGarlic,

Information that doesn’t surprise anybody who’s renting right now.

Glad it’s being presented to homeowners and boomers though.

‘Are you kidding me?’: B.C. sanctions shooting, logging in endangered spotted owl habitat (thenarwhal.ca)

Only one spotted owl remains in Canada’s wild. The B.C. government says it is committed to recovering the species, even as it approves new clearcuts and recreational shooting in a Fraser Valley wildlife area set aside for the owl.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

They are absolutely the lesser of two evils compared to the BC Libs. There are some areas where they don’t seem very different, but on the human rights front they’re usually a lot better.

That said, I’m surprised they haven’t given any increase to disability payments during their tenure. With the rate of inflation it’s a necessity for many people.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

Mostly. r/197 wasn’t really a sequel to r/195. It was mostly made up of people banned from r/196.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

Losing a pet is one of the hardest things you can go through. I hope they’ll be okay.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

It gives fecal transplants a bad name too.

They are a perfectly valid treatment for actual colon-related health issues. They are not a “cure” for autism. Autism isn’t something that needs to be cured.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

Not at all! No worries.

SourCreamAndGarlic,

Autism isn’t curable because it’s not a disease. It’s a difference in brain development. You can no more cure it than you can cure ADHD or being transgender.

What you can do is provide a child support. Autism is a spectrum, and some children will need more support than others. Early-childhood behavioural and communication therapies can make a massive difference in the long-term prognosis for a child with autism. Different educational approaches can also help quite a bit. This isn’t going to solve the problem for every single child, but the outlook for people with autism is significantly better than it was in the 80s.

I sincerely hope life doesn’t force you to become the caretaker of an autistic child.

I absolutely refuse to put another human being on a dying planet, so no need to worry about that. Regardless, if I do somehow end up with a child, I’m fully on-board to support them no matter how they turn out.

Self-checkout theft causing problems for retailers — and shoppers who despise receipt checks (www.cbc.ca)

I started using grocery self-checkouts during COVID, but I’ve kept using them because there’s rarely a line (and I’m a misanthrope). I’d probably go back to using regular human checkouts if I had to dig through all my crap to prove what I bought....

SourCreamAndGarlic,

100%. Life is too short to spend it standing in line.
