    Ya, I took the sizes of the moto g7 power and cut a piece of paper in those sizes. I've been "playing" with said paper for a few days now, see if it feels good in the hand and whatnot. haha.

    I highly suggest you buy a real e-reader (kobo). One of my best buys. The day mine breaks I'll buy a new one without a second of thought.

    Oh ya, no headphone jack is a deal-breaker to me. Non-removable battery is, also, almost a deal-breaker too, but guess that's the norm nowadays, no idea why.

    Well, not fitting on my pocket makes it definitely not worth it to me!

    I will use anarchylinux instead. It's an installer for arch.

    Do you find your current phone (6.2") too big? Would you prefer if it was smaller?

    This thread might seem weird, but I am considering buying a new smartphone and I have my eyes on the Moto g7 power (for its awesome battery!). Sadly, it is 6.2"! My current phone is 4.7". I have small hands, 6.2" seems way too big.

    If anyone has a 6.2" phone, how do you feel about it? Does it even fit in your pants?

    "They plan federation and want to be in F-droid". To me, "plan" and "want" are just words with a similar meaning as "are not". They are not federated and they are not in F-droid. They've been saying that they "plan" and "want" for several years, yet they are still not. So, I would consider the best alternative, which, right now, is matrix.org.

    Everything you said is true, however, these 2 lines don't sit well with me:

    There are a lot of justifications and excuses I could give for why I got it wrong, but in the end it doesn't really matter.

    and

    This is a good example of why I don't like publicizing bans.

    I disagree with these two lines. If one is spending time on a given site, helping it grow, adding content to it, etc, I think one deserves to know how it is being run. But I am on the team of "total transparency" and I understand that there are others who are not.

  15. Comment on Banned accounts should have their past comments visible in ~tildes

    That is true. An admin/mod doesn't owe anything to anyone. Should we all stop making feature requests, raising issues and making suggestions?

    Indeed. A reason for the ban and then a link to the specific post that got them banned sounds perfect to me.

    So, this is, in part, in response to the alibaba ban.

    I think it's bad practice not to know why someone got banned. Firstly, it may lead to excessives from your part ("I will ban anyone and everyone I want and no one will know"). Secondly, it fails to show other posters that X behaviour will get you banned.

    They mention 2FA for ssh. That sounds interesting, how does that work? I would like to set it up myself.

    It would be nice if one had the option of adding the spoiler tag to all comments containing X.

    For example, I haven't watched endgame yet. I would feel safer if I knew that all posts containing the word "endgame" were hidden behind a spoiler-tag.
