If you use multiple Mastodon instances, do be sure to not re-use your passphrase. A nasty administrator can modify their instance to save your passphrase before it is encrypted, or disable the encryption entirely.
If you have signed up to other instances with shared passphrases, change the passphrase on anything that uses that passphrase.
Note: This is true of any web site you can't trust. This is why people don't re-use passphrases.
I am unsurprised that people have great difficulty understanding fairness, consistency, and justice in a world that thinks Dark Souls is "tough but fair".
No, that game is arbitrary and a dick. A massive fucking bell-end of trial and error bullshit. There's nothing "fair" about stuff you can't predict until after you're dead. It's "tough but fair" in the same way rolling a 7+ on your first d6 is "tough but fair".
