Hello, Mastodonians. I'm wondering: do you have a strategy for keeping up a high level of interaction with people on the web while keeping things pleasant and positive? Are there things/places you avoid or emphasize? What do you do to put your voice out there, but try to reduce negative and ultimately pointless arguments and interactions?
Hi, @GerryT! I get that, and I understand. Mastodon is a good place, although I haven't quite found my community here yet. But I find that things devolve super-quickly in the broader 'net. I wonder how folks deal?
@GerryT My thinking isn't really fully formed about what I'm asking, or what I'm looking for. I just want to be less grumpy, but still online :)
@awhite Haha, "less-grumpy-but-still-online" made my day. I don't know whether it is a trend or permanent, but the way how people interact on #socialmedia lately is filled with hatred and threats. Very weird. Here over in Europe, someone just writes that there is an issue with #socialpolicy and some others immediately yell #refugees . Quite nasty.
@GerryT Yeah, what prompted me to write this is getting yelled at for having the audacity to say that the law believes it is the job of a driver not to door a cyclist, not the cyclist to not get doored.
