How to see which app is trying to desperately contact api.segment.io

Looking at my Pi-Hole logs, one app is trying hard AF to contact segment.io. The only issue is, it's my second phone and while most apps are the same as what's on my first, I tried uninstalling a bunch and it's still trying desperately. Does anyone know of a way to find out which app is the culprit?

Tracker control makes it really convenient to turn off internet access for a bunch of apps, perhaps that could speed up the trial and error? Though the tracker blocking functionality might kinda get in the way if it tries to block the segment.io traffic, so you might need to set it up specifically for your needs

It's an app that pretends to be a VPN so it can filter out network traffic from apps seeking to track the user, but its very easy to to just turn internet off for a given app

Aww, thank you, I'm really glad it was a helpful suggestion!

Best of luck and I hope you have a lovely day ☺️

I mean, that kinda seems like why I'd want there to be housing specifically for trans women. Building housing specifically for trans folks seems like the wrong way to solve housing discrimination or housing unaffordability. I think those problems would probably be more effectively soved through other means

But building essentially shelter housing for trans folks without a safe place to go seems like a great way to create a space for them that is safe and trans inclusive should they find themselves in crisis, and unwelcome or uncomfortable using other faculties that are disproportionately serving cis women who may or may not be welcoming or understanding.

Now they just also have to implement policies that address housing unaffordability, and housing discrimination. If its like the situation in the US, kinda feels like thats never gonna happen 🙃

Gooootcha, I follow what the point you're making now!

also, I appreciate you filling me in cause I wouldn't have read the article and he context you provided is much more useful than the headline

Hope you have a good one :)

Obscure screw added so appliance cannot be disassembled ( lemmy.world )

Basic blender went bad (motor ran but spindle wasn't rotating). I wanted to disassemble to see if it could be repaired. Three of the four screws were Phillips head. I had to cut the casing open in order to discover why I couldn't unscrew the fourth. It was a slotted spanner.

Seriously. I'm not sure why people think it's so dangerous. Unplug it and remove the blades. Its just a motor for God's sake

E-Bikes Should Not Require Pedaling, Proposes U.K. Government, Diverging From E.U. ( www.forbes.com )

E-bikes could get faster, more powerful and not require pedaling, in a move announced today by UKGOV. Cycling organizations are opposed to the plans.

Personally I'm of the mind that people should be free to tinker with their things, and regulations should be specific enough to appropriately respond the performance to whatever the thing has

It is not wrong to modify the bike that is your property to change or customize its appearance or functionality. It's wrong to be inconsiderate, or a dick. I think the distinction is important

Allowing a country's political party to position their industry in a monopolistic way is a bad idea. When one group controls an industry they much more easily exploit their consumers. Encouraging folks to buy ev's in general is different from undercutting prices to create a dominant position in the market that can be exploited once you have no meaningful competitors

That being said, we all know thats not why they're doing it, they're doing it to protect the interests of US auto makers, which also sucks

After announcing increased prices, Spotify to Pay Songwriters About $150 Million Less Next Year ( www.billboard.com )

When Bloomberg reported that Spotify would be upping the cost of its premium subscription from $9.99 to $10.99, and including 15 hours of audiobooks per month in the U.S., the change sounded like a win for songwriters and publishers. Higher subscription prices typically equate to a bump in U.S. mechanical royalties — but not...

Dude that sounds rad! Thanks for mentioning them and explaining what they are, I'll have to check that out!

Being hostile to folks who are different from you on the basis that they're different from you is shitty behavior. Leave that kinda shit for Facebook

You can make a life choice without going out of your way to antagonize folks who made a different one. You know, exactly like you're bitching about people doing on your blog post.

I think it takes a while for that kind of competitor to emerge and gain enough traction to become a genuine alternative option. The primary option everyone long since adopted kinda has to suck for a while :/

I don't think something like duckduckgo is gonna be the eventual contender to take on google. I think it'll have to be an engine with its own index or some kind of lateral solution.

Something like brave, kagi, qwant, or stract could maybe turn into something exciting with more momentum, but honestly I have a hard time seeing them be the kind of scrappy competitor with a new approach that unseats the old king who has lost their way in pursuit of more profit at the expense of product quality. None of them seem like they truly have a new approach, but only time will tell how that story plays out this time.

[Serious] Why do so many people seem to hate veganism?

Seen a lot of posts on Lemmy with vegan-adjacent sentiments but the comments are typically very critical of vegan ideas, even when they don't come from vegans themselves. Why is this topic in particular so polarising on the internet? Especially since unlike politics for example, it seems like people don't really get upset by it...

As much as I'd like that to be true, I've definitely still seen vegan spaces online that are intensely alienating and hostile 😅 when I was using reddit, often anything from r/vegan that hit r/all was pretty hostile to anyone who hadn't already decided it was an important issue for them and made big lifestyle changes accordingly, adopting veganism.

To be totally honest I've also never seen any beef industry propaganda encouraging people to hate vegans or resent veganism. If you can think of any examples off the top of your head I'd be curious to see them (if nothing comes to mind thats fine, I don't intend that as a gotcha)

I'm not vegan (grew up with an eating disorder, not in any position to cut stuff out of my diet or make eating more complicated/difficult, though I have a lot of respect for vegan ethics) but I am a big nerd about open source stuff and linux, and I've observed similar things in that space. I have a friend who's averse to open source stuff because folks have evangelized to her aggressively and with the same sort of superiority complex many folks perceive vegans as having. I'm grateful she's excited to listen to me talk about the stuff I'm excited about anyway these days, but I'm careful not to make her feel pressured to drop proprietary software she's using for open alternatives because I want her to feel respected even though she's not invested in this thing I care about a whole lot

I think when you work hard to adopt a big change for reasons you're proud of, it's easy to view yourself as superior for having learned the thing, or made the dietary change

I think you're pretty out of touch with how most folks experience eating meat. I don't say this as a personal attack, but I think the emotional experience you're ascribing to folks who do eat meat is inaccurate

Cris_Color ,
@Cris_Color@lemmy.world avatar

I think thats fair, but I don't get the impression most folks who eat meat consider it wrong at all, never mind in such a black and white way. I have a lot of respect for vegan ethics and even I have mixed feelings on whether I consider it explicitly wrong or immoral

Right, being crass on Twitter is why people don't like him. Has nothing to do with being a fascist who wants to dismantle the democracy of the US and become a dictator

As someone who much prefers gnome for my desktop this shit is so frustrating. I'm kinda just waiting and watching to see if they ruin another thing I like about it :(

Its fucking exhausting
