It’s between lemmygrad and places like beehaw, scopuli etc.,
I think a lot of people consider lemmy.ml and lemmygrad as two sides of the same coin.
lemmy is only the field of that play.
Could it be due to more and more instances blocking lemmygrad and lemmy.ml is basically the only place where users from the wider lemmyverse connect with users from lemmygrad?
there’s like 4-5 people coming here (at lemmygrad they are banned instantly)
With federation, who’s to say that someone comes here or goes there? Isn’t lemmy.ml-posts sent to the instances you’ve mentioned?
and flaming with really nasty shit and obvious trolling
In my experience it goes both ways.
Sponsor blocks carry a signal encoded in the video
No. “Users submit when a sponsor happens from the extension, and the extension automatically skips sponsors it knows about.”
through the googlevideoAPI
I’m not discussing with you any more.
Everything openly accessible on the internet is subject to scraping. Open groups on Telegram isn’t any different. That’s not spying, IMO…
If someone were to present i.e. chatbots (auto moderators) and promising that it wouldn’t store anything it came across, that’s more like spying. If somebody was able to gleem into closed groups without permission or password, that’s spying.
Reading up on the github, I see nothing shady going on. “Masquerading” as real users, by making real accounts with real phone numbers? That’s real user accounts with fake names. Am I masquerading as a real user on lemmy since I don’t present my account with my real name? No.
I think the programmer is somewhat overselling what this is, it’s a logger and scraper of public information using legit methods. I’d be surprised if what I write now isn’t stored by serveral system, both benign and hostile/exploitative.
Also, don’t use Telegram for real stuff folks, but for other reasons than TGInformer.
I’ve seen what twitter was under this jerk, now it’s all suddenly “i fooled you, I was against censorship the entire time haha”.
No thanks, and I’ll consider anything he funds as toxic.
