I’m not sure why you’re nervous about posting on a federated instance that has the channel you need. Is it a moderation thing?
In general I like to rely on federation and don’t lean towards “duplicates” on several servers, but I also understand the very different approaches per instance :)
(Also, while Antiwork exists there, I think a Work channel would be useful! You know, at least until the Revolution…)
Yep, it’s really frustrating - the false information is a real problem, and the fact that their output is so huge means that their SEO is unfortunately really well optimized. So you want to make a simple search on a specific topic and end up on articles that are clearly AI-generated, all over the first and second pages of your search engine.
I enjoy the blog post by Curtis McHale on how he mostly uses YouTube and Reddit for information rather than search engines nowadays.
Oops - looks like I misunderstood how to crosspost https://beehaw.org/post/358289 and copy-pasted instead. Sorry.
Not in the current way things are organized. I think everyone who is involved in the agriculture and/or food industries should prioritize veganism and make it easier to be vegan, meaning that you can still eat animal products but that they’re never offered as a default, you’d have to go to a specialized shop to buy them for instance instead of them being offered in all restaurants and supermarkets.
The effort should not lie on the consumer, with a limited choice of vegan options (especially if you don’t want to spend time cooking), but on the production and distribution channels.
They’re semi-public spaces, I’m not sure “infiltrate” is the right term. (I’d call it correct for WhatsApp though.)
