    I keep making community based on PHP Micro-Framework HLEB.

    It's fun enough. I love some of the ideas behind the Discourse forum, and the Q&A site has not been overlooked by Stack Overflow. I like Tildes.net and Lobste.rs for their minimalism, I spied some ideas here. In general, I am making a universal publishing system for myself, which can be used further.

    By the way I study php, tk. this is a new language for me, and undoubtedly I make a lot of mistakes there. Two days go by, looking at the old code and wondering at the mess I've made. Okay, I reassure myself that this is only a layout and refactoring in the future. )

    On GitHub: github.com/LoriUp/loriup
    Website (demo): loriup.ru

    Would like to make everything as simple as possible, but there is not much experience and time in this matter.

    Simple, minimal, harder to do, but interesting. I try not to use some third-party libraries to avoid dependencies. There is a lot of work, but I like it, and I think this is the most important thing. )

    I just finished reading it "A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life" by Jack Kornfield.

    "This important guidebook shows in detail and with great humor and insight the way to practice the Buddha’s universal teachings here in the West. Jack Kornfield is a wonderful storyteller and a great teacher." — Thich Nhat Hanh

    Perhaps the most important book yet written on meditation, the process of inner transformation, and the integration of spiritual practice.

    From compassion, addiction, and psychological and emotional healing, to dealing with problems involving relationships and sexuality, to the creation of a Zen-like simplicity and balance in all facets of life.

    A good, simple book.

    This is a very interesting topic. And the comments here are great.

    There's no objective definition of right or wrong in content moderation. Right and wrong is subjective, especially across cultures, and moderation should be subjective too. - comment from Hacker News

    As noted above, if simplify, a lot depends on the staff of the community. What are their goals? Is there a fork in the interests? They want more people, or they want quality. It's just that if you need money, everything changes. Money dictates behavior.

    I am familiar with some communities where there is nothing to be done without strict punitive measures. But no one will do them. Need advertising, need coverage, we need money. The administration stands for high-quality content on the one hand, but also wants more, more participants. Two goals. They are difficult to combine.

    Rust is slowly gaining ground. And not so long ago I read this:

    Rust will never replace C++. Rust, and other languages ​​that claim to kill/replace C++, have been born dead.
    Let me explain: in computing, it is impossible and totally unacceptable to make a clean slate!
    ...
    My advice: Forget Rust and other C++ killers, do not waste your time and money. If you have any new and interesting ideas, do not write a new language, go to the C++ committee and propose an addition.

    I use: White (site and account default)

    I switched to another, the result is the same. Google Chrome, extensions not installed. It’s strange.

    I don't see any errors in the browser console.

    P.S. Perhaps a really browser. There is a group-list-item-not-subscribed in there. And the color is transmitted.

    When add !Important in the browser, the behavior changes.

    Tried Vitan is a natural herbal drink.

    Vitan-1 drink: helps to improve the functioning of the cardiovascular system, has a good effect on the digestive system, improves immunity, removes small doses of radiation.

    They write on the bottle. I do not know. But delicious. Let's hope that's useful.

    I understand that you can make something like this yourself. The main condition is to collect herbs in an ecologically clean area. Then brew in moderation, add honey to taste, cool and done. I think it is much healthier than many carbonated drinks and delicious.

    I think by introducing such a function, they will significantly improve costs. There was a request with a bunch of filters, now actually (if disabled) it has become a regular request. In their place, it was long ago possible to make and observe whether their algorithm is so great. There is no need to conduct surveys, users will choose for themselves. But for the purity of the experiment, of course it was better to do it initially so that their algorithm could be turned on.

    Now you see the tape in the usual order. Turn on our algorithm and you will like it!

    And then see how many users will turn on their algorithm and, accordingly, conclude how good it is. IMHO, much better than imposing (here's our algorithm, it's the best!).

    In Russia, there is a fairly large number of news sites, both moderate and not so. It's rather boring for me to visit all of them, and some news topics don't interest me too much. However, there is perhaps one place that (I think) almost everyone visits:

    https://yandex.ru/news

    Automatic aggregator Yandex.News. This is a feed of all sites that submitted their RSS feeds, API feeds and provided information to Yandex. The ribbon is convenient because it is customizable.

    There are some news outlets that are quite intrusive and you can easily block them to avoid seeing them in your feed. It's just convenient.

    No large company is immune to data breaches. Small site, 1000 personal data can go away, big millions. The reasons are different, hacking, for example. Everything that is done by people by them and can be broken. Another conversation is when this happens through the fault of the company itself. The usual reason is money. There is a constant lack of money and everyone wants more and more of it. Companies justify this desire by the presence of a huge number of servers, infrastructure. Huge expenses.

    But in any case, the larger the company, the more customers it has, the more responsibility should be. Unfortunately, Facebook is a bit dismissive of this. Although ... they say ... put any other in his place and the situation will be similar. People are to blame. They want more money.

    I am trying to create a tool that I would like to myself and which I would like to use. Something similar to this site. Certainly not a copy. And there is one condition, I would like to repeat it in php. Unfortunately in php for some reason they do not do something like that, or the code is too bloated. A good reason to practice programming, learn php better, and create a product that can be useful.

    Like: news.ycombinator.com, lobste.rs, discourse.org, flarum.org I tried to study their code to better understand the approach to this. I do not give a link to my project, it is still raw, tk. I just started doing it.

    • Exemplary

    Everything is not as presented. I am sometimes amused to read what the media write about the place where I live. Makes me think. How one should not love and not respect one's own people, if you write openly and lie to them. As mentioned above, there is a confrontation between two powers, and, unfortunately, Ukraine is used. But one important note. It is located on the border with Russia. It is very important. The best advice is not to use the neighbors of these 2 major powers to make your plans with their help.

    Of course, Biden has his own interests in Ukraine. But is this a reason to start a war? Is this a reason to use the Ukrainian people in this way? And how can you make money this way?

    In Russia, there is a saying in a negative context: "money does not smell."

    They smell. They smell like blood. When people often talk about freedom, they decided to shed blood. When I hear a conversation about aggression, about the violation of rights and freedoms, I know. Someone needs territories, resources, money.

    This is my last post on politics. Religion and politics are two of the most toxic topics on the web. Another thing is interesting. Those who write about politics are not politicians. And whoever writes about religion does not practice.

    I came here for another. I want to see a website, I like minimalism, I want to read and study the rules of how it all works here.

    35 years in politics, now I started programming. )

    Advice. Don't trust the media. They lie. Don't waste your time. Do what is nearby. If you open your eyes wide, you will find that there is a lot of work in your home. Good luck. Yes, and sorry about my english.
