Welcome to mastodon! You already have a large following, that's great! However, mastodon is kinda a wild place. There's a lot of shitposting and lewds. (also great!)

This means that nazis can live on their own instances and we can block them off from the rest of us.

At this point the people funding the main branch of Mastodon seem to mostly be buying us growth-hack and popularity-reinforcing mechanisms that appeal to the impulses that have ruined every commercial social network.
Pay someone who has better ideas, imo.
Climate Change, hope Show more
Is it strange that I have hope BECAUSE global warming is starting to have direct disastrous effects on everyday people?
