Hello everyone,

Based on the recent instability of Lemmy.world, a lot of people have been wondering whether they should move to another instance.

I used to look at https://lemmy.fediverse.observer/list and recommend people to pick a generalist instance with as much users as possible (using the 1m column), usually

Of course, there are also the regional options

And of course, the thematic instances

I used to recommend the most populated instances, as we know that All depends on users subscribed from the instance.

However, now with the introduction of the Lemmy Community Seeder (https://github.com/Fmstrat/lcs), which

tells your instance to pull the top communities and the communities with the top posts from your favorite instances

do you think this should still apply? I have seen promising instances (high uptime, already on 18.4 that was released today)

Would you recommend users to join those as well, assuming that the admins use the LCS to populate the All feed? Most of us remember the Vlemmy.net disappearance, and it’s difficult to tell users to join small instances based on good faith, but at the same time, every instance needs to start somewhere, and they should be given a chance.

What do you think?

    So you’re obliging people do something just because you don’t like the way they operate? And at the same time call out fascism yet here you are demonstrating yours.

      A resouding yes. Why should you not call out and put an end to the way Nazis, Chinese communists, Muslim Brotherhood or KKK operate? Is fighting against violent fascists fascism, in order to clear way for a free and just society?

        The irony here is that you are being hypocritical. You want to end Fascism with Fascism. So you’re no different than the fascists themselves.

        is fighting against fascism fascist?

        Yes. Because you are just going to start dictating your way of life on them. So you’re back to square one with another fascist in power.

          If a band of deranged communists came running towards you with weapons, because you don’t agree with their idea of establishing the perfect marxist utopia in the whole world, what would you do? Sit there and try to negotiate with them? They are too brainwashed for even a single rational conversation. By sitting there helplessly, you are making their job easier for them

          By your logic, the Allies shouldn’t ever have fought wars against the Nazis. They should just have went to some “international peacekeeping organisation”
