    I never said that once you decided to never have children you should then permit yourself to do whatever.

    The thing about kids is that they will grow up and make more kids. And more. And more. And I dont see how a theoretically inifinite amount of children (assuming the sun doesnt explode and kill us all) can be better than anything else I could do in my lifetime.

    Of course that by no means means that it gives you a free excuse to do whatever. I said single best thing, not only thing you can do.

    Im against having kids, but im not going to stop anyone from doing so. Consider adopting instead. Or getting a pet.

    I think the single best thing to do for the environment would be to not have kids. Adopt if you really want one.

    I dont use channels with music videos / intro sounds. And as for the audio quality, my headphones are shitty so its fine for me.

    My phone maybe?

    Lg v20 us996 factory unlocked.

    Decent cameras + lineage os + SD card + ir blaster + fancy audio DAC + hotswapable battery on the lineage kernel.

    Also an FM radio, but it doesnt work on custom roms.

    It definitely isnt for everyone, but I like it.

    I then use syncthing to move it onto my phone automatically.

    If you are worried about disk space, use syncthings .stignore file to not sync what you dont want.

    Reply if you want to know the exact settings I use.

    Another thing to look into! I run the occasional VM within windows and it runs quite poorly. Would it run better on linux? Do I need to do some config changes?

    So ghostery was the fastest in a study by ghostery. Hmm.... I think ill stick with ublock origin. Even if it is slower, the numbers are so tiny that it couldnt possibly matter.

    Banning the people posting and curating the content on the site for free? That would not end well.

    The issue is that these power moderators do a really bad job. They remove posts across the site to allow their own posts to be more visible. They ban users who call them out or who they dont like off what is essentially the whole site, meaning that while they cant delete your account, they can make it useless. Im not saying to ban all moderators, just the abusive ones.

    Subreddit number has almost no correlation to work required to maintain those subreddits. I mod a dozen, yet only one requires 99% of my time. An arbitrary limit solves nothing. It does however create a great number of problems. Hope you didn't want to make a new sub to test those CSS changes.

    Yeah fair enough. But something does need to be done about this. This was all I could think of

    Unlikely to happen. My subreddit stats show adoption is already about 50%, and you can pry dark mode from my cold dead hands.

    Adoption is so high because they force it onto every new and old account (plus logged out people). And they also keep "forgetting" peoples settings and reverting back to the redesign even when opted out. And as for dark mode, use res I guess. Notice how fast the old design loads comapred to the new one? Theres so much bloat.

    And about gold (copy paste stopped working??). Iirc gold makes up a small percent of reddits income. And im not suggesting they get rid of it. Im just suggesting they use the previous system. Which still earns money.

    I never said these would be good for them business wise, I know many of them are bad.

    About the power mods, I guess you are right, but even if you just get the really well known ones that are on the front page every single day it would be an improvement.

    As for power mods making more accounts, I guess they will make more accounts, but its better than nothing and I cant think of a better idea.

    About the redesign, of course they arent going to throw it away, but I can dream dammit.

    About tencent, I guess it just seems like something that couldnt possibly be good for reddit. I dont think tencent would invest 150m and then not expect anything from reddit.

    About opening sourcing, yup didnt think that one through. And it would create competition from people cloning their site. But I would still like it.

    And finally gold. Yeah I dont know how it would work. All im trying to say there is that the old system was better.

    E: oh and about advertiser friendliness. Not just that anime thing, also enoughinternet, nomorals, sanctionedsuicide and a few other subs I forget.
