New release! All bugfixes this time. New in this version:
* Fixed a crash when updating the photo library screen, and a bug where the photo library did not correctly scroll to the end.
* Favourited toots are now correctly highlighted again.
* Fixed a weird bug that could turn your timeline upside down.
* Fixed a text that was too long on iPhone SE.
* Swiping up from the Toot button on non-iPhone X devices should work a little bit better.
Look, we can't control what anyone says. People are going to be what they are. But what we can do is set the tone for what is acceptable and what isn't.
If you let your members harass and demean people with no consequence, that's what you're going to be know for.
If you allow your members to make 'jokes' at the expense of marginalized communities, that is going to be your reputation.
We all have a say in the kind of culture we want to create.
@SuperFloppies said "Oh look, the bullies won today."
"We had to destroy users on Mastodon to save Mastodon" should not be a motto anyone is comfortable with. You came here to find something better, and right now we aren't better.
If we want to be better, we have to act better. If you start treating people worse than you need to be treated, sooner or later someone is driven off. It happened today, and maybe it wasn't someone you cared about. Next time it could be someone important to you.
One thing we privileged folks are really good at is going into hysterics when it's our bubble’s turn to pop. Get a grip on. Listen when marginalised folks point us at issues (making allowances for their history of hurt before you tone police), because, surprise surprise, those issues will come back to haunt us.
@wilw Not sure if you can still see replies here but here’s my unsolicited 5¢ worth: Leaving the fediverse is like leaving the Web; you don’t need to to play by your own rules. You just need your own site. Get Hugo (@mastohost) to set up mastodon.wilwheaton.net, block who you want, and take control of your own presence on the fediverse. Unlike Twitter, each of us decides what the fediverse is. We shape it. Stay, on your own terms, & help make it better by example.
right fediverse, time to step up to the fucking plate.
_this_ is not acceptable. Harrasement, bullying, blatent lies and defamation are not 'it is the internet bro, yolo'.
Don't agree with someone? fine. Either shut up, or debate your difference of opinions politely. We are not the cavedwelling homo erectus of millenia past, though situations like this make me doubt that.
Take a fucking bow, folks.
I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.
Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈
So, great work fediverse, you've shown you can be as toxic as the site you're making so much fun of.
