      • @kaniini Well, they're the ones I'm talking about, because they're the ones that come and go so frequently in my area.  Either they don't achieve sustainability (because the tradeoff for a member isn't worth it), or they do skeevy legal stuff and end up afoul of the various Worker's Rights apparatus in our local or federal government.  I was lead to comment on this to begin with, for example, for hearing that one local food co-op in the Glebe here, basically had to shut down.  They expelled all of their members for an attempt at unionization (which in and of itself makes me think - if this is a cooperative effort, why the batcave do they need a union?  they obviously weren't treated fairly) and no one would touch them afterwards.

        The one solid cooperative here is the local credit union, which has been going since 1968 or something like that.  But even that's had its fair share of troubles.

        • @purplehippo I remember reading in the New York Times there was a coop that required all adult members of the family to work so the one mother who wanted to be a part of the coop had to work for her husband's "shifts" too (if she wanted to remain a member) and this is for like what, getting food 75 cents cheaper?

          Dear world: 2.5 hours of your life is worth more than 75 cents.

              • @purplehippo when it comes to trademark cases it's what could cause brand confusion that's the determining factor as to whether the court will action it or not.  Unfortunately this also means the more high quality the work of a "homage" that uses the branding does, the higher risk of it *having* to get cherrycanned.  In trademark law if you don't actively defend your brand, you lose any claim of it, and thus basically lose any control over your own work.

                    • If youre genuinely in the business of creating a cooperative community endeavour, treating your people like community, not capitalist worker-drones, is imperative.  Most coops just seem to function like a CostCo where the membership fee is work, not money, and frankly, I fail to see the fundamental difference, especially when in practice none of those people have any actual ownership stake in the business.

                          Mickey says, "No that's not what I said; I said she's FrankerZing Goofy"

I ask cause not only that, my pc powers down randomly and then start up by itself. I assumed that sounds like a PSU issue. Would the PSu failing dmaged mywireless stick so its 5ghz is toast? OR is this all happening due to a hardware failure in my stick just having my pc reboot it self now and again?

                                    im sure i am a hostile, angry person. but im just trying to survive day by day. because what i was doing before was not surviving.
