Casual reminder that is free, open source software, development of which is crowdfunded through Patreon: patreon.com/mastodon

If you care less about development, consider supporting your local instance admin instead (in case of mastodon.social that's still me and link above, YMMV)

List of sponsors: github.com/tootsuite/documenta

If this kinda of extreme proliferation of Lashon Hara throughout a community becomes dominant, you get extremely paranoid anxious communities with incredibly toxic all or nothing approaches to each and every conflict. Your stance on any one person's mistake puts you into factions of social groups who condemn each other for associating with or defending each other. It rips apart communities and makes everyone miserable.

Absolutely confront people when they fuck up but when it's resolved, move on



Worked on something to let admins easily set preview image for instance (like OpenGraph image): github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

In a classical gargron move, I spend all day working and miss all of the video games with friends

Why does facebook display "companies for you" above the chat list now. Dating for brands??

If every decent software engineer knows that faces and fingerprints cannot be passwords because they're neither secret nor can you change them, then why does Apple, which is supposed to be a top-notch tech company, release features like that
