@victor

FYI, i left that other social network for good and deleted the node. Fuck it lol

@verita84 I was going to ask! But it looked like you were going native for a little while. You had a wallet set up and everything.

@MischievousTomato @victor


ahhhhh he said it! cover your ears

@victor

In the process of closing all of the SATS wallets. Gonna keep CashAPP and Exodus wallet and try to build up a savings with BTC.

Fuck it, why not try again lol

@verita84 @victor lol
what made you leave it? you were so hyped

@verita84 It’s funny how the people who are most likely to slow/stop adoption of bitcoin are the people who use it.

I seriously wonder what percentage of those users were just Jack Dorsey bots carried over from Twitter, slightly improved so that they don’t all say literally the same thing.

A series of bad decisions.

That’s true lol, you’d think for ppl that are obviously obsessed evangelists, they’d really want to answer your questions and get you interested.

@bot @verita84 They do the low-IQ thing where, when you prove them wrong, they pretend they didn't read what you said, pinpoint some other, unrelated thing in your post, or change the topic entirely.

Leftist tactics modified to shill a pyramid scheme that somehow just keeps on going.

I enjoy btfoing them lol. I don’t understand how I even have followers there tbh.

@bot @verita84 And plus the frontend devs were mega-soy. I don't know how you can make something that's halfway functional and then incrementally make it worse and worse in such a short time span.

Oh are you moving back here completely? I don’t really care personally, it’s growing pains. Damus is getting image uploads and some other new features.

@bot @verita84 I dunno. Fedi feels kind of empty lately, but maybe I just need to rotate my follows around a bit. It's hard to find where the fun people are as a single-user instance (but avoiding all the mod/admin drama is worth it).

@victor @bot
I get it. The spam is getting worse and the Gossip dev talking about censorship was the last straws.

Which gossip dev? Do you even use gossip?

@bot @victor

Gossip is the Linux Nostr client. I was talking to him today and he was wanting censorship against "muh nazis" I forgot his Username

I’m kind of disillusioned and bored with it all in general, but I’m still planning to mostly use nostr esp after Alex makes soapbox work with it.

@verita84 @bot That's the trash-looking one, right? It looks like a Java app from 1997.

@bot @victor

Remember, the Fediverse is about to reach a record milestone of 5 million users I think.... Nostr only has a fraction of that in the thousands and the user experience will never be this good. Clients should not do all the work.

@victor @verita84 @bot stay on twkn

@MischievousTomato @victor @bot

That's the only timeline I use

@verita84 @bot He doesn't need to add censorship, it already censors almost everything because it's so trash that you can't see anything. The Iris dev must have been inspired and decided to do the same thing.

@victor @bot

He was talking more about censorship at the relay level, not his app

Fedi has like 6 million (but it’s super fractured so that’s not really an accurate figure) and nostr has 2 million. But fedi is a lot older too, and nostr needs time to sort the spam issue, which isn’t a problem at all for me btw even tho damus doesn’t do spam filtering.

It was only a matter of time.

@bot @verita84 2 million on Nostr? There's no way. It felt like...100 tops. They're all basically the same user.

@verita84 @victor @bot I think once the strfry dev gets back from RL raping him in the ass, we'll be able to get more control over the spam problems. He's got a cute little plugin interface that'll help fix it, but it just needs the tiniest bit more tweaking.

gossip is written in rust. rust is for trannies. simple as.

That’s true in a way lol, but I always find new ppl when scrolling the global tl.

@Omega_Variant @verita84 @bot Everyone loves free speech until they hear something they don't want to hear

Indeed 😔

@bot @victor

They have less than a million for sure . 7 million accounts are probably spam. Daily Active users is 100K but that is mostly spam I bet

@verita84 @bot I was kind of excited about it for a while, since the standards are actually really well-written (at least, the earliest ones are, the later ones are gradually turning into bloated trash).

I've always wanted to get into Fedi coding but don't have the patience for the ActivityPub specs.

Where is that from again? I’m guessing that’s one relay?

I think this just recently came out of some early beta no? Looks like they are planning to eventually emphasize this throughout more of the third world was the impression I got. Though they also did a rollout in Japan, they also want to put in a market feature. Either way it's not fully developed yet, I wanna keep an eye on it for later developments it looks like it has potential for fun in the future as it matures.

Hmm it’s hard to nail down a figure from all that. Anyway, I feel like I just see the same ppl on fedi every day, things seem more alive over there.

@nolasco @verita84 @bot It's basically some smart guy (and he is smart, and well-spoken) paid by Jack Dorsey to write specs, and a bunch of other people making clients and stuff.

The concept is actually really nice, which is what got a lot of us excited, but the community is absolute F-tier trash. And in the end, it doesn't matter how nice your protocol/platform is if nobody interesting posts on it.

Maybe it will get better in time, but that time certainly isn't now. I think my biggest problem is that, right from the very start, it's all about money...The love of mammon runs deep there.

@victor @Omega_Variant @verita84 @bot free speech is essentially unreachable

@MischievousTomato @Omega_Variant @verita84 @bot Yeah. Jack Dorsey probably pulled all his goons into a Zoom call and told them they better get these troublemakers out or he's not going to fund it.

Lots of momentum there to ensure the "censorship resistance" is only used to talk about things nobody anywhere would ever care to censor.

@victor @Omega_Variant @verita84 @bot more or less ig. that said not even I'd support 100% free soeech

That’s a very schizo take lol. Fedi has proven to be a failure in that sense anyway.

@bot @MischievousTomato @Omega_Variant @verita84 Probably so. I guess it's just culture shock. I'm used to be able to start a thread about meaning of life-type stuff here and have at least one or two people jump in and talk for a bit, if not having it turn into a bigger discussion with some clashing where everyone learns something and has fun calling each other faggot in the process.

There it's just..."Yeah, but bitcoin will save us!"

I can understand why ppl are like wtf when their introduction to fedi ppl was rape threats and someone going around spamming “cp for zaps”.

I’ve found smart ppl there, you guys are just quitters smh..

>It's basically some smart guy (and he is smart, and well-spoken) paid by Jack Dorsey to write specs, and a bunch of other people making clients and stuff.

Fair enough, that's also what they're expecting similar to any social media site. Takes time for people to make your platform good.

>I think my biggest problem is that, right from the very start, it's all about money...The love of mammon runs deep there.
Aye, I could be misinterpreting the direction they're trying to push this in but what I think the idea behind all of this is is to get people (so far it looks like in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Central African Republic) get comfortable using the technology and eventually open up a marketplace on the app people can then sell their products directly on. Though the zap shit is still cringe, it's underlying purpose from my understanding is to eventually make it useful to conduct trade using Nostr protocols. Who knows though I think the zaps will be a fun social experiment to watch play out in real time.

@bot @MischievousTomato @Omega_Variant @verita84 I haven't quit, in fact I have it open in another tab right now. The only semi-interesting posts I see are from the Mostr bridge.

@MischievousTomato @victor @Omega_Variant @verita84 @bot I love how half of this thread isn't even federated

@TURBORETARD9000 @Omega_Variant @bot @verita84 @victor its ok sweetie you don't need to talk to anyone but me

You’ve also spent a lot more time here finding good accounts to follow.

@victor right they all literally say the same shit post the same stuff
