The rent is too dang high in Cities: Skylines 2, so the devs nuked the landlords
  • If they don’t individually own the property but pay for upkeep and there is no landlord… that’s a housing cooperative, no?

  • How to buy music?
  • Amazon still sells mp3s that you can download.

  • Poll: More than 60% of middle class say they’re ‘struggling financially’ and are not expecting things to turn around for the rest of their lives
  • If your income is primarily from your labor (physical or not) and not from the capital that you own, you are working class.

  • German football coach condemns 'racist' TV survey that asked participants if they wanted to see more white players on the national football team
  • If you are posting in good faith, please look up push polling.

  • ‘People ask me to use another door’: MEPs on bias, whiteness and rise of far right
  • The EU parliament (where this article takes place) is based in Belgium and France… right?

    Are the Haitians still paying the French for their slave debt or do they still have another century?

    Didn’t one of the Belgian kings do a bunch of slavery (I think the euphemism used is “forced labor”) in the Congo up until the 1960s? Like some real vile shit like chopping off hands of people who weren’t productive enough?

  • We wish you a merry notification bell

  • Update: IRS successfully launches their own free Direct File - now ALL of my fellow 'murcans are eligible for 2025

    Edit: this isn’t to knock direct file… which is good and cool (and should be expanded to have more features)

  • This is the most 2024 headline I’ve seen so far.

  • Repeating “tariffs never work” doesn’t make it any more true. America was founded and developed industry by using a combination of tariffs and free real estate (stolen land) to fund development of the internal US economy. And it worked. Same with Canada’s National Policy in the 1800s.

    How does @SDF plan on handling the current situation with illegal images being federated/uploaded?

    For background, this post on db zero provides background on what is going on.

    Lemmy.world had to shutdown a community and temporary restrict signups, other instances have purged image caches, and dbzer0 is using a scanner to prevent images from being uploaded if the get flagged.

    Is old.lemmy.sdf.org broken for everyone else or just me? Edit: It Works!

    It looks like when logged in, instead of loading comments, it gives a 500 error in the comment box.

    Edit: It looks like they fixed it. Thank you @SDF!

    Is there any interest in SDF hosting an "old.lemmy.sdf.org" MLMYM Lemmy front-end

    I noticed that lemmy.world and slrpnk.net host old.lemmy.world and old.slrpnk.net and I was wondering if there was any interest in doing that here. Personally, I think it meshes with the SDF vibe.

    Edit: this would be in addition to regular Lemmy

    Edit 2: it looks like they added it at old.lemmy.sdf.org. Thank you @SDF@lemmy.sdf.org!
