    I don't, I switched to kbin. kbin automatically filters nsfw from the auto dash feed, and it's not named after a man who owned the largest private collection of nazi memorabilia in the world, so, there's that

      Yeah, I prefer to go with morals over conveniences in situations like this. The Lenny instance I joined was full of weirdos calling each other comrade and calling Ukrainians nazis. I don’t think us giving them strength in numbers is right.

          He's talking about Lemmy of Motorhead who is one of the reasons Lemmy is called Lemmy.

          Honestly from the memorabilia I just think that was Lemmy's passion, I was never a big motorhead fan but I've seen more than enough instances of his political thoughts to not really look down on him for his collection. He was a dude really passionate about that part of history and loved collecting stuff from it because he thought that the Nazis "looked mean". By that he meant cool. He had a collection of artifacts from all the Axis, stuff from Finland, the Baltics, Hungary etc.

          I suppose you could say his collection and widespread appreciation for the aesthetic was a bit tone-deaf and strange but I never thought you could look at his work and his life and call him a Nazi. He clearly wasn't racist giving his romantic history and had a few interviews where he talked about his disdain for racism.

          Fun fact Lemmy actually owned a german tank destroyer called the Hetzer, or the Jagdpanzer 38. His collection was extreme to be honest. He had artifacts from all the axis countries in Europe iirc. I often, when I was younger, wished I was so rich I could collection historical artifacts from ww2 like that. I was wanted a King Tiger, a Pershing and an IS-3, never actually saw service in WW2 in combat. I liked big tanks. Sadly I don't think I'll ever get any of those.

          I use Kbin over Lemmy for the record.

      I don't.

        Ditto. I'm on Kbin. Even though the fact that it keeps logging me out and losing my place in the list of posts drives me nuts.

          That was fixed since time ago. It affected me too. Clear your browser cache for Kbin and try again.

          If it persists it might be an unrelated issue.
