Really like @Gargron post on how to get started creating your own Mastodon instance.
Gets me tempted to create my own instance, not for community but freedom from potential abuse.
How can we keep discoverability and encourage multiple interest groups?
At the moment only via creating/managing identities per instance to view their local timeline. Or am I missing something obvious?
Anyway, take your victory lap and collect your prizes. You've made it clear that I'm not welcome here, and even though I disagree with the action this Admin is taking (banning me when I didn't break any rules doesn't seem right), I respect and support the Admin's decision to run their instance the way they see fit.
Please do your very best to be kind to each other. The world is a terrible place right now, and that's largely because it is what we make it.
Wil Wheaton comments from me
Feel sad about the whole @wilw thing.
Really hope he gets his own Mastodon instance and sticks around.
Mods has an unenviable task to act as 'landlord/lady' for their area of the fediverse. There's a difference between people banned through their actions on that instance - and banning people because of their alleged past actions elsewhere.
Otherwise it stinks of "we don't serve your sort here" - which is not what most of the instances are about.
I know that I'm well-off, well-known, and as a CIS white hetro dude in America, I live life on the lowest difficulty setting. I know that I have very little to complain about.
But I still have feelings, and I really do care about the world and the people in it. What I see is a lot of anger and cruelty directed at the IDEA of me, from people who I just hope don't realize that it really does hurt me, in my heart, to be accused of being someone I am not, and to be the target of a hateful mob. 5/x
