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?

mom: hey son I joined this new Mastodon thing

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.
@HATF Medium being a proprietary service, unlike WordPress or Ghost there is no way to verify how secure it is or how well they are internally maintaining user data. This as a security model is very bad as it leaves a lot of unknowns and requires a lot of trust. Trust that companies often break, just look at all the companies that give their data over to the NSA.
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
