    Yes the website admins. To address your point about “free speech.” Free speech has limitations. You cannot advocate violence and encourage crimes to be committed. That is not protected speech under the constitution.

    Rules exist to help maintain a website/forum, appeal to advertisers/investors, and prevent the site/forum from being lambasted or taken down for allowing very not ok speech and illegal content on their site. 
     
    Without rules, you have chaos and nothing structured around chaos can survive.

    DrMacintosh reacted to Den-Fi in Facebook claims Apple is "ruining the internet as we know it"   
    Does this look like the face of a normal, human meat creature that would lie to you and sell your data?
    Surely not.

    DrMacintosh got a reaction from Hymenopus_Coronatus in Samsung May Copy Apple After Mocking Them. Galaxy S21 will most likely not include charger and headphones (will be sold separately).   
    They probably figure that if it was ok with Apple customers that it would be ok with their customers too...and they're right. What are you going to do, not buy a new phone?

    DrMacintosh reacted to Commodus in Voat.co, a social media website Shutdown their services on Christmas   
    I have a feeling this thread could very easily go off the rails given the nature of Voat, but I'll try to keep it on topic.
     
    It's not at all surprising that sites like Voat, 8chan, Parler and Gab struggle and sometimes die. If you create a site with effectively no rules, you just create a haven for the people kicked off other platforms... and surprise, those people are often extremely toxic. And when a community is dominated by toxic people, everyday people will just stick to the moderated spaces.
     
    In short: these sites are rarely the utopian dreams they're portrayed to be, and more-than-the-minimum content moderation frequently helps.

    DrMacintosh reacted to leadeater in M1 MacBook Air with thermal Pads almost on par with M1 Pro.   
    Because not every person want the back of their laptop used as a heatsink and getting hot. Honestly it's not like there is any real performance loss, the great thing is you can do these higher end tasks on the Air but is that really what the device is for? For the length of time it takes to start reducing performance and by the amount it does so I highly doubt anyone will notice let alone actually care outside the "benchmarkers".
     
    Not exactly pleasant, do you want unnecessarily sweaty legs or hands/arms due to this?

    DrMacintosh reacted to jesus123 in M1 MacBook Air with thermal Pads almost on par with M1 Pro.   
    Is that equally relevant in a fanless laptop? There isn’t much airflow happening anyway or am I missing something?

    DrMacintosh got a reaction from pas008 in A report that Apple has apparently secured 80% of TSMCs 5nm production throughout 2021 emerges

    DrMacintosh reacted to SpiderMan in Can static KILL your PC? (ft. Electroboom)   
    At least do the motherboard of all things, I would have enjoyed the video more if they did that or a video card. They are most likely MORE expensive than the RAM you would probably be putting in your build.

    I really thought they would kill more than just RAM. Lol.

    DrMacintosh reacted to AluminiumTech in A report that Apple has apparently secured 80% of TSMCs 5nm production throughout 2021 emerges   
    Traditionally yes because AMD traditionally only used Samsung or Global Foundry based nodes for their products but they moved almost all of them to TSMC. The only exception being Zen IO dies and the newly announced re-cycled Zen+ APUs for Chromebooks.
     
    Now that AMD has moved almost everything to TSMC this is going to be a big problem for RDNA3 and Zen 4.

    DrMacintosh got a reaction from SpiderMan in World of Warships   
    Well, depends on what you mean by "get into" 
     
    You can get up and playing very easily. You start out with bots and then slowly get introduced to real players. A bit of warning, the game is much more enjoyable if you're willing to open up your wallet for Premium time and investing in some premium ships. As for how pay 2 win it is....its certainly a factor. There are premium ships out there that are outright overpowered, but most of the broken ships are resource ships (that anyone can earn), not ships you pay money for. 
     
    The game takes a good amount of skill. You have to know when to use HE vs AP, which targets are higher priority, armor values so you can know how to angle yourself and where to shoot enemies. The game is also pretty grindy (but the economy is good if you have premium time). 
     
    Is it fun? If you like warships, absolutely.

    DrMacintosh got a reaction from mrthuvi in [Update: Bug existed in Insider Builds since August] Chkdsk is supposedly corrupting SSDs on Windows 10   
    Just about every time I service a machine, Windows has been corrupted severely.

    I've used both tools to great success also. I'm just disappointed with how often I need these tools and really disappointed when Windows is so damaged that these tools aren't effective and a reinstall will result in loss of data.

    DrMacintosh reacted to BuckGup in Cloudfare and Apple working on a new DNS to protect data from ISPs   
    Apple realized selling privacy is more profitable in the long run than selling data as their competitors solely exist on selling data. So market and sell the one thing your competitors can't do. It's a great strategy

    This is from a few weeks ago, but I didn't find anything with the search function so here it goes: 
     
    Summary
     Apple and Cloudfare are proposing a new DNS standard:  Oblivious DNS over HTTPS (ODoH) to anonymize  user's data from ISPs
     
    Quotes
     
    My thoughts
    This is another step Apple is taking on privacy, now targeting ISPs. This combined with the recent feud against Facebook with the AppStore new guidelines on privacy, I'll say Apple is going very strong on privacy.
