YouTube screwing itself with adblockers again

I use Firefox and uBlock Origin. Not sure what kind of experience anyone else is having with YouTube, but recently my home page has been empty because I “don’t have watch history turned on”. Okay, fine. I won’t be able to browse suggested videos, and I’ll spend less time on their platform....

In your second sentence, please remove/change the ‘r’ word. It is considered a slur and is not nice. Thanks.

…you were taking their archive content and reuploading them.

You were impersonating the YouTube channel tied to this fan group.

These are bold statements. I’m not sure where you are coming from. How are you coming up with these accusations?

admin OP ,
@admin@beehaw.org avatar

I wasn’t aware of ‘REMVideoArchive’ until you pointed it out. I’ve taken a quick scan of their channel and website and it appears that we shared very similar content. Maybe that group reported me to YouTube or maybe not. I have no idea since YouTube did not make any attempt to explain any details other than the screenshots that I provided. Again, I’m not upset. I’m just confused.

Most of the time it’s not worth the effort unless you have overwhelming evidence.

I completely agree. Hence why I will not be fighting this.

Strongest Solar Flare of Solar Cycle 25 | NOAA / NWS Space Weather Prediction Center ( www.swpc.noaa.gov )

An X2.8 flare (R3) occurred from Region 3514; located over the far NW area of the Sun. This is likely one of the largest solar radio events ever recorded. Radio communication interference with aircraft were reported by multiple NWS Center Weather Service Units (CWSU) co-located at FAA facilities. These impacts were felt from one...

As far as I understand this, a large enough CME could send society back into the stone age. It could wipe out all electronics (the entire electrical grid, all computers, etc). What are we looking at here with this report?

EDIT: Found a quote from an article:

Friday afternoon, forecasters from the SWPC put out an alert for a G2 “moderate” level geomagnetic storm for both Saturday and Sunday.

Thank you for all of this information. 15-30 minute warning is meaningless in a worst case scenario. A substantial CME could be the end of most people on Earth so reliant on the electrical/electronic infrastructure. It would spell absolute chaos upon the western world. Probably, the only people that could survive this are ones that truly live off the land in almost every respect.

Fix for Beeper Cloud is done, rolling out patch to all users now (3.5 hours remaining til everyone is fixed). No need to contact Beeper Help regarding this issue.

Testing fix for Mini now. Will require app update.

We realize how incredibly inconvenient this is for you. It’s super annoying that Apple is penalizing their own customers and Android users who just want secure and encrypted chats.

We understand if you choose to disable the iMessage bridge at this time. We’ll try to stabilize this and get you back in future.

There are several apps that offer more features and more privacy than iMessage and are officially supported (not relying on unofficial hacks) on every modern smartphone.

Like Signal and Element X, right?

None of the admins of Beehaw are advocating doxxing. It isn’t nice and it is not allowed here.

Poll shows Palestinians back Oct. 7 attack on Israel, support for Hamas rises ( www.reuters.com )

Almost three in four Palestinians believe the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas on Israel was correct, and the ensuing Gaza war has lifted support for the Islamist group both there and in the West Bank, a survey from a respected Palestinian polling institute found.

One thing I noticed is that the site doesn’t have any mission statement or “about us”…

Good point. I’ll work on that.

if even half of them linked back to the site from their own blogs, channels, or sites you’re likely to see a difference in your search ranking.

Great idea! Thanks!

And the following as well:

Phone number registration is not working yet. All users must now sign in with an AppleID. Messages will be sent and received via your email address rather than phone number. We’re currently working on a fix for this.

I’m just curious as to what Beeper’s response will be.

Because I participated in the closed beta I get Beeper free for life. I’ve been using Beeper now for almost 3.5 years and I love it.

Surprisingly, no one reported this as being off-topic. Memes do not belong here. Locked and removed.

How do you deal with disability discrimination at work?

I’m looking for a little advice because I’m feeling pretty lost. Without going too far into it, my manager at work is using things that she knows are part of my disability, autism, to give others a negative impression of my work performance and conduct, and causing me to be disciplined. I believe she’s trying to have me...

@admin@beehaw.org avatar

I’ve had only one workplace experience that I would consider extreme. I was directly threatened (unsolicited physical harm) by another co-worker. I immediately brought it to the attention of the manager and their response was: “I don’t have time for this shit!”.

I walked out, got in my car and drove home. Then I wrote a very detailed letter (email) to the corporate headquarters explaining what had transpired. The next morning I went back to work, with several printed copies of that email, to hand deliver to the managers.

While waiting in my car for the building to open, one of the managers came to speak to me. They expressed to me that they knew what had happened the previous day and headquarters weren’t going to do anything about it. I gave that manager the printed copies, drove home and never looked back.

I had enough self-respect and dignity to just move on and leave all those assholes behind.

Feeling lost sometimes

I feel lost sometimes. I’m an ethnic minority in s country I consider my home, and in recent years I’ve seen conflicts surge especially with the rise of outspoken xenophobia paired with economic troubles. I thought I could change this when I was in my twenties. I got involved with migrants rights organizations. I volunteered...

First, I believe that @agegamon provided some good thoughts.

That being said, I believe that being heard is important here. I hear you and others do as well.

I wish I could wave a magic wand and make all your troubles disappear.

Take care and feel free to share more in the future.

Also guilty.

Why would you feel this way…most of us were born into this world not knowing anything about climate change…I only learned about it in 2007…Scientists have known about this problem, at least, since the 1950s…It has been shown, many times over, that the primary responsibility (of no longer burning fossil fuels) falls onto a handful (or so) of very large corporations…Of course, they want the every day person to feel guilty and have been pushing green-washing propaganda for decades onto all of us…propaganda works in their favor to deflect the blame off of themselves and onto you and I.

Right now, China and India must get on board quickly in order for the future populations to subvert the worst case scenarios.

  • YouTube once again ahead of uBO on Firefox; fiddling with the extension settings not working this time and DDG search is useless ... anyone got ideas?

    Pretty much the subject line. uBO has successfully blocked the nag screen enough times that I can’t play anything at this point. No preview loads, and the play button serves no function. I’d really prefer not to have to find content on YT, copy the URL and use Piped/Invidious, but this ongoing escalation is steeling my...
