I see more and more (I assume young) people that are bootlickers on r/piracy that I’m wondering the following.

IF, the real productive people, like the mods on that sub like db0 for example, come here, and there is still people there is it really important to have a sub there?

You see, if there is no productive conversation going on that sub, because the people who are productive came here, that sub will die off, but slowly.

At least we got rid of the bootlickers, right? Also, as always piracy always gets banned, if a site gets too big, too mainstream. r/piracy was mainstream. It’s better if that sub is the frontpage of piracy, but the real important things are happening here.

My request for the mods: Next time, when there is a need for an update of the megathread, don’t update there. No need. Just do it here. It helps lemmy more that way.

    Essentially mafias would run a mattress store which rarely would get much business as a front to explain where their money is coming from. Same with american sweet shops in the UK, some phone repair shops, car washes, etc

      In germany it seems like a lot of döner"restaurants" and hairdressers are in cahoots with local gangs, I cant explain otherwise why there sometimes are three or more of them almost next to each other without going bankrupt. Like, in a street near my home there are three hairdressers all less than twenty meters from each other.
