what does exactly muting mean on Mastodon ?

@catonano I did some quick googling gave me the link www.mastoguide.info/Pages/muteFAQ.html but it is dead. I'll search if that page has an archived version.

Seems somewhat dated though, it's a year old - but, strangely, I could not find a better explanation of the mechanism.

@phoe

thank you, I am a bit confused about this right now

@phoe

look, right now I'm a bit overwhelmed

I need some time to collect my thoughts

I'll read later

thanks

I'm appreciating the way you interact

thanks

@catonano Take your time. No one's putting a deadline on you with this stuff. Read it at your own pace;

@catonano that you don't see each others notifications any more, nor in timelines.

It's a lesser block.

Sometimes quite useful to help one take a step away from a conversation.

@maloki

thanks

sorry for calling you in

the snowslide of bro dudeism is going on

@catonano I'm not going to entertain this.

I can also defend myself, if need be.

I tend to focus on finding a common ground, when I have the energy, instead of pushing each other further apart. Or I wait until I do (which is why I'm napping now).

@catonano You will not see the muted user but the user does not get a notification that you don't see them.
