Lemmy has a hardcoded slur filter that prevents posts containing various racist, homophobic or ableist slurs. Recently some users have asked us to remove this filter, or make it configurable for instance admins.

We want to make it clear that we will never do this. Right-wingers can still fork the project to remove the filter, but we will make it as difficult as possible for them.

like yeah fine "Zipper creepy" okay, absolutely, the literal zipper on his back brings up major concerns and I understand that

"I'm not afraid to get Corona" is fake punk.
"I'm gonna protect my community" is real punk.

Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.

Remember that time when we hit rock bottom? Those were such innocent times...

Quick, temporary #FreeRadical policy update:

Effective immediately, medical advice regarding #COVID19 not sourced from legitimate scientific or medical outlets is forbidden content. If you see someone advocating essential oils or colloidal silver or other junk quackery, please report it.

This is not a free speech zone. Misinformation that makes people dead is not “oh well we all have opinions”.

Other #admins, I beg that you please consider a similar policy.

is under a "Shelter at home" order right now. That itself is crazy... but one side effect I've noticed is that the city is deathly quiet at night. Usually, there's always some level of ambient city noise. That's gone now.

I guess I'm moving to now. Any resources out there on how to get kicked out?

When, in the course of human development, existing institutions prove inadequate to the needs of man, when they serve merely to enslave, rob, and oppress mankind, the people have the eternal right to rebel against, and overthrow, these institutions.
