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.
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.
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.
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!
I take the pledge btw
Hi! I am a person that exist. Queer.
