Is anyone else getting increasingly annoyed at the fact that half the posts to Genzedong, British Communism, etc are screenshots of anticommunists spouting nonsense? I get that the person posting is communist and they’re calling out those screenshots as BS, so it’s not technically anticommunist propaganda in itself but a showcase of anticommunist propaganda, but it’s still annoying when I’m trying to see communist content in a community marked as “communist content only” and get hit with literal Nazis justifying fascism, especially when there are dedicated communities for all kinds of anticommunist nonsense: ShitLiberalsSay, ShitFascistsSay, ShitAnarchistsSay, etc.
This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.
If you haven’t already found it, this GitHub page is an excellent collection of sources about socialism, imperialism, and other relevant topics, made by @dessalines and others.
We have a Matrix homeserver and a private Matrix room. See this thread for more information.
I agree it’s better to stick that content in these communities you mentioned, as that’s exactly they are for, and that’s exactly the content that it’s expected from them. If we have a specific community for that content, why not put it there, right?
Hexbear have a community called the_dunk_tank where posts like these usually go. I think we should have a community like that too if people want to post people being dumb or malicious on social media.
This sounds like a good idea. A sub for all the chaff if you will.
There we go, the names decided. Look at us, sorting shit out like a bunch of mad lads.
Exactly, content categorisation is the whole point of Reddit-like platforms!
My only knock against this is that Lemmygrad doesn’t feel like it has enough membership to be able to split off in too many different directions. Maybe one dedicated anticommunist sub but not three IMO
Really? Lemmygrad seems like it’s bigger than Lemmy.ml honestly.
I’d imagine they’re roughly the same size, but lemmygrad people are more involved in discussion. Any thread with lemmygrad users in it explodes in comment count.
I think I’m just going off of the OG GenZedong reddit traffic IIRC
