2021.12.02 10:34 Silfennic TikTok has ALWAYS had an issue with underage/illegal content.
TikTok started out as a child grooming app.
This is going to sound a little tin-foil-hat-ish, and I apologize in advance for that. I was in my late teens when the Music.ly - TikTok merger went down and while I remember the buzz about it, I'm struggling to find published sources. So my links will be a bit all over the place.
In 2017, [ByteDance Ltd. bought the popular kids app Music.ly and merged it into what is now known as TikTok in 2018[(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical.ly#:~:text=ByteDance%20Ltd.,time%2C%20Musical.ly%20Inc.]. The basic theme of the app stayed the same; Music.ly was focused on young teens lip syncing and dancing and the like, and so (in theory) is TikTok.
The mainstream issue with Music.ly is that Music.ly was violating US children's privacy laws, collecting data on children younger than 13 who used their app. That article has a tiny, 1 sentence paragraph about the issue I want to talk about now:
"It also noted that there were reports of adults trying to contact children in Musical.ly, and until October 2016 there was a feature that let others view nearby users within a 50-mile radius."Music.ly had a problem with child porn & predatory grooming.
An Illinois father is speaking out and warning other parents about the potential privacy risks of the popular app Musical.ly, after he says a stranger asked his 7-year-old daughter to send shirtless pictures of herself through the app's messaging feature. "She came to us and let us know that there was someone asking her to remove clothing for pictures, and she knew it wasn't right," Brad Frakes told ABC News of the interaction that he says his daughter, Madison, experienced while using the app, which lets users create their own music videos. Frakes posted screenshots of the exchange between the stranger, who identified only as "Jessy" on the app, and his daughter, on his Facebook page in an attempt to warn other parents. In the messages, "Jessy" asks his daughter to send photos of herself without her T-shirt on, and asks her to keep it "a secret between us only.""During an eight-day investigation, Channel 4 News viewed 45 hours of live streams which revealed nearly half of the streams viewed contained inappropriate content, directed to girls as young as nine.
Another mum from Birmingham posted online: "My eight-year-old daughter is being followed on the site and what looks like grooming her also - he's been messaging my daughter sending her pics and requesting pics from her." She took her phone off her daughter and was aghast at what she discovered. She said: "He is liking young girls videos. The girls he seems to be targeting are around age range 10. To say I am disgusted is putting it mildly."...

2021.12.02 10:34 Narwhalnord I think I have SPD
So I’ve just found out about SPD quite recently and when I did, everything just kind of fit into place. I don’t really want to self-diagnose myself but I’ve always been very adamant on finding things that might be different with me because it’s easier for me to cope that way - also the fact that I’m still a teenager, and I don’t know if anything could be concrete. I’ve always felt disconnected with everybody - and I mean everybody. I was very shy when I was younger and my mother always just to expose me to other people as much as she can. It kind of worked, I guess. I mean, I can talk anybody If I need to but most of the case I’d rather not. I don't think I've ever really been vulnerable to anyone, even my family. At first I thought I was avoidant but I wasn't really "scared of intimacy", if anything I just don't like it. I don't really know how to connect with my cousins either, even though I've lived with them for most of my life. I tried to "connect" with people but It always felt forced and it always felt like it was something I was supposed to do. I mean, I appreciate them - I really do since they've been there for me but I just don't know. I haven't really been the most affectionate person ever, I thought it was my social anxiety but even with people I'm comfortable with, I don't show affection to. I've had friends but they were mostly very shallow friendships and if we would somehow cut ties, I wouldn't really be bothered by it since I had no attachment to them whatsoever. I've had people who tried to "connect" with me, where y'know we'd have heart-to-heart but I would just get very uncomfortable. I don't really know if this has a link to this but I am a very unenthusiastic person. My family are very lively people, so more often than not the tables would be always filled with laughs and shouts and stuff, and when it would be my turn to tell a story or something, my voice would be bland and just have no excitement. I just realized that actually, after my aunt jokingly pointed out that she was getting bored while I was in the middle of telling them a story. I hadn't though about it until now. Anyways, let's get to the point. I'm thinking of seeing a professional - a psychiatrist, maybe, but I don't really know if I should. I mean, I want to do it, for the sake of having a real diagnosis but getting treatment over it? I don't know. Anyways, maybe someone can give me advice? Maybe it isn't SPD? Or maybe I should go to a psych?

2021.12.02 10:34 Gamer_217 Halo Wars 2 PC Cutscene Stutter
Playing on Windows 10 and am using an i5 3570k overclocked, 16GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM, GTX 1080, and an SSD. I loaded up skirmish to test performance and everything worked fine on the highest settings @4k. But when I started the campaign the opening cutscene audio and video stutters so badly that it is unwatchable. Which is weird as it is clearly a pre-rendered video. Anyone experience this and/or know of a fix. Trying to play this in preparation for Infinite.

2021.12.02 10:34 ChewyOnTheInside Looking to Invest into the Metaverse? Sticking with Ethereum is Your Best Bet.
Lately the metaverse is very trendy, but they are still games at the end of the day, and the gaming industry has its risks.
Let me show you a few examples:
* Cyberpunk 2077: Many years of development, insane hype and news sites being paid to say the alpha (or beta) was good. Then it launched and it had tons of bugs and missing features. CD Projekt's stock price tanked -60%. Still have not recovered.
* No Mans Sky: Lots of promises and little delivery on those promises on launch.
* Fallout 76. Big disappointment of a game and poor sales compared to Fallout 4 (previous game of the franchise), 2.46M compared to 13.5M. It's important to note that even big companies can fail to deliver; in this case Bethesda.
The list goes on...
Basically in the gaming industry you can have a game that has a bunch of hype, the alpha and beta look good and there are lots of people talking good about it and then at launch it fails to meet the high expectations. The stock tanks. With the metaverse it's the same, they are currently only games after all.
So which metaverse should you choose so you'll get a 10x gain instead of a 10x loss? I don't know, but I can tell you what they all have in common: They are all built on the Ethereum blockchain.
If the metaverse concept pops off, you will see benefit in Ethereum as well with none of the risks. Players will be paying ETH gas, thus, burning ETH. ETH price will rise.
With so many metaverses built on-top of Ethereum, we can truly confirm that Ethereum has intrinsic value rather than speculative value, unlike Bitcoin. It is more than just a currency, so you don't have to worry if Ethereum will drop to zero the next day. It is now "too big to fail". If ETH fails, everything built on-top of ETH will fail. The metaverse creators won't let that happen.
Even without hype, every metaverse that pops off will inevitably increase ETH price through gas fees. I predict players will migrate through multiple hyped metaverses before settling on the final metaverse that emerges as the victor of them all. Along the way, many metaverses will be shut down or fade into obscurity. Save yourself the risk and stick with Ethereum.

2021.12.02 10:34 shibuzaki Thinking of dual booting Windows 11 with Linux is it going to work?
I used to use Linux Mint for 2 years, now I brought a new Thinkpad e14 which came with win 10. I upgraded it to win 11 (which I need for class reason) but I want to use Linux Mint for personal use. This laptop have only 1 SSD. I am afraid that some updates might break the system. I don't want to use mint in virtual box (Unless I have no option).
Should I dual boot it? Which distro is safest for dual booting with win11 (except arch based)? What is your experience with dual booting win11 and Linux till now?
