@LovesTha @publicvoit She had a lot of health issues that modern medicine disregarded (modern medicine typically does not care for after effects and our health systems are designed to keep looking for the next critical instead of accompanying the former critical back to feeling well).
Homeopaths provide that sense of care that modern medicine lacks, so of course it "works" for many people and they put their faith in homeopaths when health system abandons them.
This problem has many sides.

If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work. https://explorerrowan.tumblr.com/post/660113290053271552/unmade-bed-strangledeggs-lovegash-blua-if
Once more for the cheap seats: legalise sex work. There will always be people selling, there will always be people buying.
Bring it out of the Hall of Shame.
Protect the workers.
And stuff this ridiculous, archaic morality.
linux things not to do
@wasamasa For these kind of things I see value in Nix/Guix as they do not replace your global OS state, just fork it. For general use they can be overkill, but for these kind of experiments those would be part of my lazy approach.
@cadadr @civodul Close to that. The "potential benefits" are that you don't have to manage the service nor communication, just the code performing a single function, and that the applications gets stopped when not in active use (so you don't pay). Most services also replicate your server to cope with traffic spikes. For a group of friends/chatbot with low traffic can be less money and management than a VPS.
I still prefer a VPS though.
@eliasr @civodul I'd say that the main point is that your employer should not own your copyrights if you are working in FLOSS. They can pay you for your time and they can pay you to produce anything (physical or otherwise) that they can retain and patent, but copyright over FLOSS should not be owned by companies.
@kippur As a spaniard, I just remove the pronouns or use generic words (that have a gender but is not associated to the group members). Spanish only has 2 definite genders and no neutral.
@yakub Using tax money to pay for proprietary software should be illegal.
Funneling public money into private pockets sucks in general but with software you can at least require that it should be open source.
