Welp, it's good to know where you stand in the order of things...

Hi it's me from the past, checking in on y'all in 2021 or so when you're complaining that Slack is so horrible and why did we cede all of our networks to them. Anyhow, just time traveled on by to say "I told you so". Bye now!

I'm delighted to see alt-text integrated natively in Mastodon! Every major platform has forsaken the semantic web, but oh look, actual people still care!

@phryk - I think we agree.

My point is that *Mastodon* is not a culture. Your instance/community is.

Fascists, etc, will become part of the Fediverse and use Mastodon. Some instances will block them and defederare. Others will follow and federate.

Mastodon, et. al., is great NOT because of a lack of bad actors, but because of granular user and instance control.

@jmichaelward @ramsey They mean the bit where it says 'Describe for the visually impaired'. You can click on it and enter a description, which will show up as alt text.

I mistimed my basil planting and it climaxed before the tomatoes were ripe. I could make a saucy analogy out of all this but I will spare us that experience, you're welcome

ferns are ancient. back then they didn't have much memory (it was expensive) so they were generated procedurally. hence the way they look

I think I shall hold (if not practice) the same stance on this as on email: we should all control personal domain names as our best form of instance independence. I would love to be a part of this community but toot from a canonical iangreenleaf.com identifier. I would especially love to do that without sysadminning my own Mastodon server.
