Me: you know it turns out that quote-tweets were actually a killer feature and the lack of them on Mastodon kind of hurts the ability to create positive conversations and commentaries around ideas and concepts and while I agree that there’s lots of opportunities for abuse I think that the fedi and strong moderation provides the means to prevent hate and hateful quote-toots from being the dominant form of diegesis in the community
@aurynn Yeah, especially since it's not as if assholes have qualms about replacing quote toots with screenshots and links.
@kellerfuchs exactly yeah
@aurynn I don’t really think quote tweets facilitated positive conversations anymore than not having them would’ve, but absolutely added to the harassment
@FirstProgenitor Twitter’s cowardice made them a tool for harassment; the fedi has much better enforcement re: harassment
@aurynn from what I’ve seen, especially from large scale instances like rad town and dot social, they do almost no moderation on behavior that isn’t extreme
@FirstProgenitor okay so a refusal to engage with the needs of moderation also needs to be addressed. My instance is going to be for-pay-only for this reason.
@aurynn yeah, that's fair
