Upvoted bc VC eventually means enshittifiication. But with xz getting back-doored recently, what is the middle ground that keeps these things sustainable financially and operationally?

But do we trust entities that depend on our governments for funding? It could be argued that they’re fundamentally compromised.

Exactly.

I wonder what that looks like fleshed out a little, though. Is that a mandatory or voluntary payment? And by paying for what they use is that per message or per month like a subscription?

Threema.ch already do this. Maybe that’s the answer?

Maybe within whatever bubble this article is aimed at, but I think it will be the vast minority who get that. But, we should push for it all around the world.

If they’re scraping the web, and they’re generating AI content on the web, how do they avoiding training their AI on it’s own nonsense somewhere?

What is the practical difference between the main instances of kbin and mbin, from a users perspective?

When spam started to become overwhelming here I signed up to the largest mbin instance, Fedia.io. On one hand it runs well and isn't overrun with spam posts. On the other, it's missing some communities that are active on kbin.social....

The world appear in the aggregator but when I searched specifically for one in particular, I wasn’t found. Just now it works so I don’t know what changed. Thanks for pointing that out, I wouldn’t have tried again.

For those with the skills, yes. But it would be good to facilitate less technical people to use the platform too.

/kbin quick March update

I'm slowly catching up with backlog tasks and cleaning up instances, but there's still quite a bit to do. Day by day, I'm managing to work longer hours, but I still need some time to ramp up the intensity of work. Just wanted to let you know that there might be brief downtimes in instance operation over the weekend. I aim to...

Thanks Ernest, I hope you are recuperating first and foremost.
In a future post, could you comment on any plans to address spam reports?

Edit: I posted this to the wrong place, but a 500 error lead me to believe the submission wasn’t successful. I’ve deleted the original text.

It was both me posting to the wrong place and Kbin incorrectly telling me that due to a 500 error, my submission wasn’t successful. I’ve deleted it. Thanks for replying or I wouldn’t have known.

The problem is that we can’t leave. We’ve requested for our accounts to be deleted a long time ago. It’s not our fault that we’re still waiting.

FarraigePlaisteach,

I’ve been waiting for my account deletion request to be accepted for a while now. Maybe a few weeks.

I like Kbin in theory, but the spam is too distracting for me. I’m not in a position to volunteer either.

[SOLVED] Ethernet gives me faster transfers than WiFi, but Airdrop doesn't work with WiFi disabled. Is the best of both worlds possible?

Not much to add to this question. I connect to the router with a LAN cable but need WiFi turned on so that Airdrop also works. Is it possible to have the system make the LAN connection default / priority in this case?

True, but the format is unique. The post format breaks up the flow of chatter into easily discernible units of conversation.

IRC, Discord and others have the continuous stream of thought with no beginning or end. On the other extreme, Instagram and TikTok require an image or video to post at all.

So I would say that FB groups have a distinct utility / identity separate from just other users being there.

The export process says it has copied subscriptions to the clipboard, but when I paste I just get the code I had pasted in to the browser console. I'm using Safari on macOS.

It's not a big deal. I don't mind starting from scratch.
