Lemmy is a free open source federated alternative to Reddit. You can follow their official account at:

➡️ @LemmyDev

You can try the flagship instance at lemmy.ml

They have now introduced federation between Lemmy instances, so people on one Lemmy instance can interact with people on others. (They are working on federating with the rest of the Fediverse later.)

@LemmyDev

I just get a 'Bad Gateway' error trying to visit Lemmy.ml :(

@joli @LemmyDev Lemmy.ml is a terrible instance to use anyway. They're censoring legit posts with reckless disregard, and they've even been caught covering up the censorship by changing the modlogs.

@bojkotiMalbona @joli You posted a scam/spam link to a credit card application. We don't allow scams on our instances, start your own instance if you want to be full of spam like that.

@LemmyDev @joli That wasn't my post, it was a reply to me. Apparently @aktivismoEstasMiaLuo's posted that to .ml. But I reviewed it & see no spam or scam. "The True Value Discover Card program ended on 3/6/2020. Because of this, we are no longer accepting new applications." <- is that what you're calling "spam/scam"?

@bojkotiMalbona @LemmyDev @joli

I'm asking if anyone knows of a 3rd-party credit card that works on the #Discovercard network, now that True Value has discontinued their card.

#Lemmy.ml ownership censored my question (in my own community that I moderate)-- apparently their anti-capitalism beliefs won't allow credit card discussion even when the ultimate goal is to find a card that's less socially irresponsible than the typical options.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo @joli @LemmyDev perhaps English isn't their 1st language. I can see how someone not fluent in English might think the post is spam. OTOH, there is a box that starts with "When painting, planting or plumbing, every DYI-er can use a helping hand. Apply for..." - where does that come from?

@bojkotiMalbona

I didn't write what's in that box. I don't know where it came from. If you follow link, it doesn't say that on the webpage.

@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo @LemmyDev @joli ah, it's in the raw HTML. <meta name="description" content="When painting, planting or plumbing,

@bojkotiMalbona

That wasn't there when the #Lemmy post was censored. It's a new feature. So they censored it b/c they think what I wrote is spam, or (more likely) their stance against capitalism.
