Lemmy.ml has fully went communist even their application needs you to copy paste a part from a communits book and that’s ok by me every politkcal group has their own instance and has the right to do as they wish . But they should really change their about from foss and privacy advocated to communist leaning .

EDIT : I don’t have any one political view i make my own and follow no one . Also i do think some views of communists are good and this is not my idea of throwing shade to lemmy devs just asking if there are any reasons that they still advertise it as for foss and privacy because i was going join and this stopped me.

EDIT : but it is a question though i am asking why they don’t change their about ?

    Lol, that’s crazy (and apparently true). My instance defederated from them months ago when they became Lemmygrad-lite. Looks like they doubled-down from the top since then.

    Edit:

    Lemmy.ml has fully went communist

    It was originally communist leaning, now I think it’s just gone full tankie. Before that, they were at least bearable.

      I had multiple people in their politics community advocating on behalf of Russia in the Russia-Ukraine war. Just spouting talking points that could’ve come straight from the Kremlin.

        Yep. That, and the brigading. It may not be organized brigading, but every 3rd comment from users there was basically someone jumping in with “capitalism bad” and tearing down any discussion/ideas for improvement that aren’t complete and total destruction of the current economic model.

        It was exhausting, so I finally just defederated. Was like a breath of fresh air after that.

      Yeah it has certainly escalated to an extreme pro-china/russia perspective there, where I’ve seen them simultaneously claim that the US is entirely responsible for Isreal’s genocide and deny the genocide and ethnic cleansing committed by China.

      Definitely went full tankie.

      yeah just copped a ban from that instance. No rule broken, unless disagreeing with a mod is against the rules. They make reddit mods look like saints

      They just want it (along with other things) to limit how fast trolls can make accounts.

      You can say it’ll only take five minutes, and I bet it does.

      But that’s probably enough for trolls to go to a different instance to make their accounts.
