Mastodon works better than GS

A way to disable content warnings that would be nice

I always want to use the open source, free as in freedom!, social networks but they are always so much drier.

Like come on sometimes I just wanna look at some memes and some nice pictures of like plants or something

One thing I liked Tumblr did mastodon don't was put not only text first but also images and video. Neither facebook or twitter does that either always gotta click shit

Still looking for a site enjoy as much as I did tumblr a few years ago. Maybe mastodon?

If you use Chrome, Google can use a network protocol for tracking and ad delivery that can't be seen or blocked by extensions. TL;DR: You really shouldn't use a web browser made by an ad company.

"AdBlock Plus, uBlock Origin, and other extensions cannot block QUIC requests. Recommended best practice is to disable QUIC from the chrome://flags/ URL."

Japan has taken over the federated timeline, that's pretty cool.

Don't really understand folks from an instance that's "anti-censorship" trolling & whining about an instance that's "pro-moderation". You've already got your safe "free speech" space and the other one isn't taking it away.

It's like someone says "I don't like popcorn" and your response is to rush over to shove a gavage tube down their throat so you can force-feed popcorn until they like it, desperately screaming "ALL MUST CONSUME POPCORN" the whole time.

It's just kind of rude, you know?

@neimzr4luzerz I'm not saying corporations using or contributing to Linux is bad. I'm saying Linus allowing binary blobs in #Linux is bad

In Mastoson, the world feels larger.

Not with walls delineated by a single @,
a network with locality and reach toward the void. Retooting might pick a gem from the void and link it toward your world a bit, something nobody else may have seen.

This is good, this is forward.
This is a way out of bird prison.

If you like Mastodon consider: Switching your OS to GNU/Linux, moving your code from GitHub to GitLab or Gogs, moving your blog off Tumblr/Blogger to Wordpress or Ghost

oh shit mastodon be blowing up, this is fantastic

don't let .social become the super-mega-gmail-like instance. join a small mastodon instance and encourage your friends to do the same

federate the means of production

Even if you don't like Wikileaks for whatever reason, don't judge a message by the messenger. The leaks might turn up relevant information which can improve the security of systems.
