Other users used to tell me stories about the old days, a time of peace when Mastodon kept balance between the furries, the commies, the techies, and all the queer people.
But that all changed when the birdsite attacked.
@Wxnzxn In some sense... yes.

@ametlles That was very interesting to read, and sad to realise.
Basically I am one of the many that swept over here, ignorant of the way this community has developed. Now, I immediately felt somewhat at home, but I did not for example realize how politics are supposed to be handled, how much attention should be paid to content warnings on here, etc.
I can see how frustrating this must be to some of those that put so much work and emotional commitment onto this project...
