First of all, let me just say that there are many, perfectly legitimate reasons to keep using Windows. There are certain Windows-only applications and if you require those, makes sense to stay.
But I just wanted to let the rest of you out there to know, and something I discovered on accident trying to power a very old, slow laptop, is that Linux has come a long way. I won't get into too much detail, but it's definitely changed. I remember several years ago reading about Linux, I came across an old forum post where someone was trying to change the size of their cursor and this guy responded with some terminal script to accomplish it, and I immediately said "Fuck that" and really only imagined Linux as some DOS-like toy for uber-nerds to tinker with.
Ever since using it on my secondary old laptop, I learned a lot about distros (think of them like a separate OS based on Linux) and Desktop Environment (also known as DE's, they're basically how the OS looks). Eventually, on my new powerhouse laptop I've installed Linux Mint, because it does everything I need it to do without the nonsense in Windows. Of course, if you're into stylish distros, you'll be blown away. Check out something called "KDE Plasma 5" (it's a popular Desktop Environment), it is (looks wise) superior to both Windows and Mac OS.

I wish I could moderate this place because it'd be so easy to fix.
Take the top post right now: "Instagram Management: How I make $8,000+ per month".
Interesting, right? So you read through it and then you see:
The reason I have only 8 clients at the moment is because I spend most of my time helping people get start their own Instagram automation business. And recently, I've helped 2 people get started with Instagram management, from start to finish. I am currently writing a full course on Instagram management which I plan to sell online.
He also mentions in the post that it takes about 1 week to find a client that makes him $800-$1800 per month, yet he's willing to teach you how to do it (funny how all these scammers operate the same way, instead of using their own techniques to make their businesses explode they opt to teach. So charitable of them!)
Maybe I'm the only one, but it's bothersome. The solution is to require flairs for every post and any "How to" MUST include proof. For instance, with the Instagram guy, instead of saying "I made lots of money...I'm writing a course btw" he must show proof of concept and concrete steps without advertising. Furthermore, they should all be required to get proof like the AMA mods do to verify this person is legit.
I think first, I'm looking for some moderators who both love the app and willing to help out. If you're someone who logs into reddit each day, it'd be perfect, as I cn use some help to remove the spam/code request threads.
Besides the above, what do you guys think we can do? I was thinking maybe a daily thread for the Everyday Headspace meditation? Maybe weekly discussion threads to see how everyone is doing? Perhaps we can add some flair as to when you started using the app?
Any other suggestions would be great. If you'd like to help moderating and/or contributing that'd be great as well.
Or do they think it'll more or less be an indictment against Trump?
Then this post the day before: https://old.reddit.com/r/benshapiro/comments/97wls3/ep_604_the_rise_of_the_socialists_soundcloud/
Is there any way to automoderator do the following logic:
So let's say you're in the hustle and bustle of a busy city, maybe NYC for example. It's loud, it's crazy, it's why they call it the concrete jungle. Finally you decide that you need a retreat, several days of peace and quiet. Then you go, the retreat is great, you feel serene, but then...you have to come back to the city. It's still the same amount of crazy and yet nothing you learned in the retreat you will presumably be able to relate to.
Is it even worth it? I mean it's one thing to go if you genuinely like where you're going and want something to do but as an antidote to the chaos you're use to, aren't you really just putting a bandage on a broken arm?
