Do we need a leftist Luke Smith?

hahahahahah the absolute state of leftypol
>>6560 he just does whatever /g/ thinks is cool. nothing about him is intelligent or groundbreaking.
>>6560 Go listen to some of the podcasts he's done, he's some kind of Tradchrist-monarchist freak living on land he bought using a gift from a rich family member and memeing about technology he doesn't really understand (I'll make my dotfiles reference the regular user account as SU so I never have to enter a password, this is a good idea lmao) to idiots that think being cool is hipster software + edgy jokes Literally a soyboi living off of daddy's money and youtube bucks larping as ted, could you be more pathetic?
>>5990 Potentially. What does the left Luke Smith (LLS) do differently?
>>6735 also flirting with antisemitism

We need to make bunkerchan browseable on smartphones. Clover was really comfy for browsing 8/leftypol/. Any Comrade willing to help implementing the Lynxchan API to Clover/Kuroba?

Repositories for references:


Currently they support only the Vichan API, but implementing Lynxchan API shouldn't be too hard.

kuroba was a fork of clover kuroba-ex is a fork of kuroba https://github.com/K1rakishou/Kuroba-Experimental by lines of code kuroba-ex is the smalles and also is mostly rewritten in kotlin, so there is that Kuroba-ex is the app that you want

Google violated US labor laws by spying on workers who were organizing employee protests, then firing two of them, according to a complaint filed by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) today. Several other employees were fired in the wake of the protests, but the NLRB found that only the terminations of Berland and Spiers violated labor laws. https://www.theverge.com/2020/12/2/22047383/google-spied-workers-before-firing-labor-complaint
Don't do evil.
>>6706 It's kind of telling that they don't use this motto anymore. Now it's 'Do the right thing', and what this 'right thing' is up to anyone's guess.
>>6706 It's "don't be evil". I.e., perfectly fine to do evil as long as you keep your image clean.

Mozilla shoots itself in the foot again to please its overlords at Google. >I came across this video recently, in which Mozilla add-on developers talk about the implementation of the new "DeclarativeNetRequest" feature that Google intends to use in order to replace the current "block WebRequest" used in Manifest V2 by pretty much any content blocker worth of it's name. The video is only 3 weeks old: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpDFS-GUytg >To summarize the important bit of the video, Mozilla is planning to adopt the new functionality without replacing the current one, essentially to ensure compatibility between add-ons in Chrome and Firefox while also maintaining the content blocker functionality. >However they are very careful to always say, wether in this video or in the corresponding blog posts, that they will support blocking WebRequest "for now", or "we don't have any IMMEDIATE plans to remove content blocking capabilities" which concerns me, because they are definitely going to implement DNR in the future, even if only at browser start up at first. >The fact that they don't give us a definitive answer regarding content blocking features is a big concern. Surfing the web without UBO is...unthinkable at this point. https://www.reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin/comments/k4lyvi/discussion_progress_of_manifest_v3_for_firefox/

Wait so if I'm a poorfag who can't afford a fancy phone that supports an open source OS buying a used iphone is better than getting stock android shit?
>>6608 >used iphone only if you want apple to kill your device performance with a firmware update see https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/14/tech/apple-slow-iphone-settlement-payouts/index.html
>>6617 Eh, I only use my phone for calling and whatsapp (thanks to normies and my boss).
>>6608 buying a cheap android and installing replicant on it is better than both of those options.
>>6661 Doesn't it suffer from the same issue as Graphene i.e. it's supported in very few devices that are hard to find and/or expensive?
