Not a thought provoking question. Locking.

Keep it polite people. 🙂

I'm going to lock this one as it's causing too much conflict.

You need to see a doctor to get your humanity checked. It seems not to be working.

No disrespect, but paying $250 to meditate seems like the worst of capitalism to me.

I believe this is a thing in Quebec.

from https://culturalatlas.sbs.com.au/canadian-culture/canadian-culture-naming


In Quebec, the Civil Code requires parents to assign their child only one surname (either a single or compound surname) derived from their respective surnames. Compound surnames may not have more than two parts, with or without hyphens. Thus, a couple named Joseph BOUCHARD-TREMBLAY and Marie DION-ROY could give their children the surnames:

  • BOUCHARD
  • TREMBLAY
  • DION
  • ROY
  • BOUCHARD-TREMBLAY
  • DION-ROY
  • BOUCHARD-DION
  • BOUCHARD-ROY, and so on.

In Quebec, the law provides that spouses retain their respective birth names when they are married.

I thought I'd give a quick update on the efforts to combat the spam wave.

Clearly someone wants to make Lemmy a less appealing place to be. It's a deliberate attempt to spoil the good thing that we have going here. l'll leave it up to you to contemplate the motives and timing of this attack on the fediverse.

So what are the Mods doing, and what can you do to help?

The most obvious one is that we are deleting the spam as soon as it is seen. We are checking more often, but as volunteers we can't be on Lemmy 24/7. We also have some automated checking going on. This is working fairly well, but occasionally some legitimate posts are being removed. These get restored eventually, but sometimes it can take a while for this to be actioned. If this happens to you, please be patient.

As users, we can help out by reporting spam posts and by posting quality content. Contributing to our community is the best way to make sure that it remains a safe, interesting and thought-provoking place.

We've implemented some basic controls to hopefully catch CSAM material earlier. As with any such control, occasionally there might be false positives. Unfortunately that's the price we pay....

We have temporarily locked posting on AskLemmy until the CSAM posting stops.

We are currently looking for mods to help moderate Ask Lemmy on lemmy.world.

AskLemmy is the fourth largest community on lemmy.world and has an active member community. Mods will need to be able to do a quick check one or more times a day, most days of the week. Checks typically only take a minute or two, although on occasions they may take longer.

Please DM me or reach out on Matrix if interested. @bluetreefrog:matrix.org

Low effort posts (lemmy.world)
submitted 6 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Ask Lemmy is a place to ask thought provoking questions. The mods have been lenient with some of the recent posts on the basis that they must provoke thought for some people, but after seeing two posts essentially saying "what do you think of my stick?", I believe we can raise the bar a bit on what kind of thoughts we want to provoke here.

No more low effort posts please.
