@JoeSondow @arcade I had someone on Twitter shitting on mastodon because it ran on ‘free labor’, as if it was a bad thing

I volunteer to do this shit and pay the $50/mo for it because it is anticapitalist!!! I do not want a profit!!! I do not want compensation!!! I want to fuck over big social media companies and have a SINGLE space online that hasn’t been taken over by capitalism. Ugh.

mastodon is not "doomed", people saying that shit don't really understand that there isn't a fucking "business model"! a bunch of people running instances are overloaded right now

i encourage anyone with the means to do so, to contribute to their admins' respective patreons*

But here we are, Muskyman has created a situation of urgency, and this has to be dealt with. So...

1) If you are white, please shut up when #BIPOC folks talk about their experiences. Just fucking listen. Don't explain, or minimize, or ask for proof or examples. We are the ones who are targeted.

2) There definitely isn't a #BIPOC consensus about the use of CWs for #racism. If you are white, and don't want to see racism, do some self-examination. You are not the target.

100 Mastodon myths:

1. Mastodon is hard.

FALSE. It’s a "soft"ware. Not hardware.

2. You have to use Linux to post on Mastodon.

FALSE. FreeBSD and OpenBSD are also supported.

3. You need to learn to use the Vim editor before posting on Mastodon.

FALSE. There’s also an emacs plugin.

4. Mastodon is only for computer nerds.

FALSE. As you can see, we sometimes try to make jokes that everyone could understand.

"Don’t Join the Army.
Don’t Be a Corporate Tool.
Don’t Carry Out Terrorism.
Don’t Support Genocide.
Don’t Risk Your Sanity.
Don’t End Up Suicidal.

The military Industrial Complex is made up of radical death-squads, and the ‘war on terror’ is a farce.
Don’t be part of it.”

If mastodon is co-opted by tech giants I would simply move to an even more confusing and esoteric social network

I’d just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, ActivityPub/Mastodon, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, ActivityPub plus Mastodon. Mastodon is not an service unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Fediverse made useful by the W3C core protocols and other vital components etc. etc. 

I am *so* sorry!
