        If only I could get my contacts to join me… I have two (real-life) friends in XMPP and none in Matrix 😅 I count my blessings and am thankful to have a few contacts that use Signal. I make sure to compensate them for their service with memes borrowed from Lemmy.

    But if you pop over to Reddit it’s a lot of similar memes.

    This is one reason I’m not a fan of the block feature (and I suppose even have slight concerns about instances blocking other instances). “Recommendation transparency”(?).

    Would be neat to say “here, I curated this feed for you” and link somebody to the instance you use with a block list embedded. If we get used to browsing without seeing furry goblin porn, friends might be surprised when we recommend a site that has so much of it.

        Not even close to the same thing. Books generally don’t copy other bodies of work like the way memes spread across multiple sites. I can’t read The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and expect to find a Tyrion chapter from A Clash of Kings.

          What kind of books do you like to read?

          Oh, the kind I find at the library.

          Good point so hope that’s better.

          Bigger point is credit where credit is due! Maybe Lemmy’s curation is superior, allowing OP to see more memes of higher quality in the time they allocate for lulz. In that case they should definitely shout out the fediverse. There are dozens of us and we can use more!

      The question was “where do u get the memes?”, not “where do they come from?”

      So yeah, we need some more reading comprehesion there bro
