Going to get downvoted for this, but it’s a private platform where free speech laws don’t apply.

Not to mention the channel owner already had the ability to delete any comment they wanted.

Nothing has really changed though, you could already delete comments to make the comment section look however you want.

This is a bad take, and the antithesis of net neutrality.

If the customer pays for a connection, the ISP should be able to provide that. Why does it matter if it’s Twitch or Netflix traffic vs anything else?

It’s as simple as this:

If my ISP charges me for X connection speed, I should be able to use what I paid for. Bandwidth caps make no sense, “internet” is not a resource that has to be generated.

What happened in the pandemic was the first real test displaying very clearly that ISPs are overselling/overprovisioning their network, and hoping we don’t notice that they haven’t actually used the money to upgrade or improve their network.

It’s easy to point the finger at the big bandwidth sources and ask for more money, but it’s wrong and it’s double-dipping. They’re using Twitch and Netflix as the scapegoat for their lack of reinvestment.

The History and Future of Digital Ownership (www.theverge.com)

I’d like to get the community’s feedback on this. I find it very disturbing that digital content purchased on a platform does not rightfully belong to the purchaser and that the content can be completely removed by the platform owners. Based on my understanding, when we purchase a show or movie or game digitally, what...

Or just let us download the actual game/movie/song like the good old days.

You’re probably thinking about homerf, which was the competitor to WiFi. I don’t think Bluetooth was ever marketed as an alternative to WiFi.

Just to note, the issue with Dolphin was that they had copyrighted decryption keys in their source code, which is why they were pulled from Steam.

What he really means is “we want our 30% cut”

The quest already runs android, so in theory all the support is already there for Vulkan and OpenGL since it runs a regular-ish Snapdragon phone SoC.

The rebuttal is correct.

DNS response from pihole makes it so your browser doesn’t even make the request to the server providing the AD. A blocked ad via DNS doesn’t make it to your device, and doesn’t even get downloaded from the remote server.

If they have your passcode then no? Why would you give your passcode to someone you don’t trust?

[META] So... about the bots

As some may have noticed, a fairly large portion of the post on this community are article links posted by bots. I am no moderator and am just a regular user like the rest of you, but I want to know what the community thinks of the posting bots. here is a sample of my opinion to get conversation started:...

Noticed this as well, I keep seeing the same topics and articles posted 4-6 times within a day or so. Getting annoying.

Sony does this (and the iPhone), but yeah should be a standard feature.

Ah yes because making something illegal stops criminals from using it. Problem solved.

Getting downvoted, I definitely remember stores burning and people fearing for their lives. Absolutely the few do not represent the views of the overall movement, but I definitely wouldn’t say it’s unfair to watch the extremists in any situation.
