Boredposting is due to the lack of motivation related to real-life items and activities, e.g. the lack of conditioning to the resources in your real-life environment.

It's related to "having to use your computer to read your emails, and getting lost on YouTube"; "tech sects"; and "cultural dichotomy-shaping environments".

We can make all the software we want, it's not a technical issue: it's a political one.


Of course, tech sects may be inherently political, because of their technology and of their business model.

For example, if Lavabit's FLOSS DIME made email encryption federated and transparent, ProtonMail would become both very expensive and obsolete – so they're doing their best to stay relevant. By shooting down Lavabit. Even if this means supporting the EARN IT bill.
