You can, but you’ll need to increase the microwave’s power accordingly.

Reddit has been astroturfed so much the recommendations there have to be taken with a lot of salt.

Lemmy and Mastodon are social media as well, and they are not profit driven. Non-social media like newspapers and cable TV also spread toxic content.

In the end, you got the causality reversed. Media (both social and non-social) gravitates towards what drives the most engagement. Negative/toxic content drives the most engagement because that content elicits a strong emotional response in the consumer.

Media amplifies the problem, but ultimately the problem is people. Toxic content is going to stick around until people stop giving it attention, and unfortunately in all of the history of humanity we have yet to figure out how.

There are plenty of real life scenarios that both equate and predate your example, and which don’t rely on anonymity. Lynch mobs in the US, rape gangs in southeast Asian countries, Hitler rallies, heck even bully groups among children. The size of the group does not have to be big to allow toxic behavior, as long as you have a catalyst (such as someone getting away with something) that engenders a feeling of safety from consequences and in- and outgroups. The Internet is just another medium for this behavior, anonymous or not. What is different is that the internet is the first medium that actively records it.

Apart from the license incompatibility (which doesn’t stop it from being used by distros, as Ubuntu has shown): While it’s a fantastic filesystem for servers, it is also resource hungry and not suitable for small or portable systems.

You can carbonate and then add Kool aid liquid drink mix. That will keep the carbonating nozzle clean while still giving you your choice of flavor.

Monthly would be nice, but don’t feel obligated to do it - we’d enjoy it but don’t burn yourself out providing content. What I would suggest though is to make sure you put a big “FAKE” watermark on them to avoid confusing the casual onlooker.
