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 I'll search if that page has an archived version.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.
@catonano A link to the whole archived FAQ: https://web.archive.org/web/20170517104957/http://mastoguide.info:80/Pages/FAQindex.html
thank you, I am a bit confused about this right now
look, right now I'm a bit overwhelmed
I need some time to collect my thoughts
I'll read later
I'm appreciating the way you interact
@catonano Take your time. No one's putting a deadline on you with this stuff. Read it at your own pace;
@catonano Got a response from upstream that explains how it works: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/7790#issuecomment-396557684
@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.
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.
