    Oh no, Fantadomat's posts have improved my opinion of the Thief games. Slavic Garrett is practically my headcanon now.

    Truth in advertising.

    I joined in 2007, because I thought it was a gaming discussion forum. It mostly was.

    There was enough jank then that I self-ejected almost immediately, yet years later frustrated with moderation from some developer forums, I came back... and the answer to that question, like the voting in this poll, was ???

    Truth in advertising.

    Also, for those with wrinkles in their grey matter, these options are not mutually exclusive.

    The internet may not always be the most tasteful of places, but not safe? What's going to happen to you there considering that they're not addressing scammers, identity theft, or financial crime which are areas where the internet can actually expose you to harm?

    Oh no, some Codexers think I'm a moron. I have experienced egregious harms to my sense of self! :cry:

    I guess it was only a matter of time in a world that requires labels to remind idiots not to eat paint.

    I suppose it's to censor anti-LGBTQ, anti-democratic and anti-Soros opinions.

    yeah Codex should be a fitness site

    i was about to buy heavier dumbbells, > 30Kg each, until I realised I can actually do a lot more with bands like combine them, and grip them closer to the bottom for more stress
    seems to be a good stop gap for now

    We don't actually live in a world that requires labels like that. At least, not to prevent significant injury. We live in a world where corporate lawyers fear there is a nonzero chance of a moron who manages to hurt themselves doing something ridiculously stupid, like self dentistry with a power drill, being able to convince 12 people that it was a corporation's fault he did that stupid thing.

    It's not necessarily that people are THAT stupid. The problem is, we can be convinced that it's reasonable to expect to be able to survive while being that stupid. If a jury hears a moron drank a gallon of paint then died, their response should be "Good, one less moron" not "This is all the fault of Big Paint!!!"

    Could always just do a Fediverse site. Wouldn't be the same though, as I don't think any of them are doing forums yet.

    In the long run, creating your own forum software is the only smart move as every software vendor will just revoke your license at some point if you're not a far left website with far left staff, rules and members.

    That's what the site owner of kiwifarms is doing as well, btw:

    Seems silly to just write your own forum software rather than use an existing and developed FOSS alternative.

    All of this garbage is written in PHP. You can't trust anyone who releases software written in that language. These people interpolate crap into SQL queries. XF2 does that too.

    Null has a good idea of using Rust. Another good language for the purpose is F#. Units of measure and ADT's can even serve as a homebrew taint mode, akin to Perl 5.
