My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

Do not click opt-out in spammers' e-mails. They use this to check whether you're receiving and reading their messages. Plus, you don't have to opt-out of something you never opted-in. Just move spam letters, well, to spam.

Mystery solved, they could not find the contact e-mail and the random guesses didn't work. I'll make the e-mail more prominent on joinmastodon.org and setup some aliases.

I don't really care because I have nothing to add anyway but it's strange to read that sentence, then look at the 3 different mailboxes I manage (only one of which would be the "correct" channel for something like this, but I digress) and not see any such e-mail in any of them

Many EBM songs shall be written of him . And thereby, I shall bang him, and unto him birth a Dragon, (assigned villain by normative dragon-archetype ), and for this betrayal I shall be Debranded, & our descendants the Homeric Dragonflight a nexus of assignment

Now I'm getting worried the Mastodon iOS app welcome screen will be so good people won't want to leave it. Not sure if I should show it just yet. Don't want to spoil the surprise...

Just to reiterate in relation to Gab getting hacked, I’m not aware of any vulnerabilities in Mastodon at the moment and based on what I have seen in their code modifications the vulnerabilities they have are the ones they themselves introduced (along with never porting security patches from us)
