Request : Tooters who have a blue tick after their name in Masodon, please remove. It is a status symbol, a relic of the BirdSite. We really have no place for a caste or class heirachy here. Of course, it is upto you.
@SabinaBasha or they can put the :antiverified: one
@SabinaBasha The joke's on them anyway. It must be something that has occupied their mindspace day and night, frustrated them, not let them sleep. They're here to see the blue tick next to their name and have some sort of an orgasmic release in their minds.
@SabinaBasha I agree. Thinking about it, makes perfect sense to disregard any relic of the bird platform, lest we give them any legitimacy.
@SabinaBasha hit the nail on the head !!
@SabinaBasha +10000000000 misleading at so many levels
@pithy_in Feudalism does not die so easily. Why do people want a badge of superiority? Sucks
@SabinaBasha that's a valid point.
I always wanted a blue tick🥺 though I don't have one.
@SabinaBasha (I rather see it as a way of mocking the Twitter blue tick, since here it has absolutely no value whatsoever.)
@lertsenem Yeah, one way of looking at it. But why not start clean, why bring relics over?
@SabinaBasha Well, it's hard to build something completely clean, and no matter what people *will* make the comparison with Twitter...
I feel that this practice brings attention on how different this place is from Twitter : here everyone can get a blue tick. Thus this "elite cast" from the old birdsite does not exist anymore (and can't exist since there's no central authority).
High time! Blue tick obsession should stop. Had seen way too much on birdsite. They are mostly paid accounts, whom twitter verifies & supports as per the business or other interests.
Glad, we don't see such madness here. Hopefully, people should take care of it and ensure its about engagement and not about promoting supremacy.
@SabinaBasha I personally think it shows that anything is possible in the free software world.
There are still difference among users, some people will always be good with technology, some will not.
@SabinaBasha You have an option, use pinafore web app, it has an option in settings which will remove all emojis 😝
