Lemmy world -> politics = USA.. it feels so wrong but well, the block button is there for something, isn't it?

[-] [email protected] 46 points 10 months ago

Oh, damn, I subscribed to the wrong community. Sucks.

I thought this was about world politics and it turns out it's just (again) US centrism.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 10 months ago

I think I can mention it. I mean, why not?

There was a cool subreddit back there, r/USdefaultism. We should do something like that here.

[-] [email protected] 26 points 10 months ago

Seriously. This is egregious enough that it makes me wonder if admins can rename communities.

[-] [email protected] 22 points 10 months ago

whats even more egregious is the errant space after "politics" making it read "politics @lemmy.world"

Please rename the community to US Politics if that is the only topic allowed.

Just unsubscribed after this post, I was wondering why my feed was full of local American politics.

Kinda gross how chauvinist americans are in taking the default term "politics" instead of "US politics" while ignoring international affairs. It was gross on reddit and it's gross here.

It gets even worse when you see the mods dismissing this reasonable criticism as "trolling". They have decided that this is their turf because they've gotten here first, regardless of utility or rationality. Pretty much describes the whole state of politics in their country.

Really would be renamed US politics in my opinion since this is a .world instance.

[-] Squander 6 points 10 months ago

Theres no political debate happening here lol. Just a lot of circular tugging.

[-] Ensign_Crab 3 points 10 months ago

There's a lot of whining from republicans who won't get rid of the nazis in their party and can't stand it when people point out what that makes them.
