@anildash I'm sorry about my behavior and our resultant squabble in the bird place. I could have apologized immediately and didn't because I felt humiliated, flustered and defensive. I had no intention of you seeing my dumb joke. I've felt bad about it on a regular basis ever since and am learning how to react differently - or less - to the idea that I've hurt someone. I hope you can forgive me, but regardless, I am remorseful. Mastodon seemed like a good place to say so.
Like, if we were an Exxon instance, and we were federated with the Mobil instance, we could just talk about oil publically but if we wanted to say just to the Exxon people "what's with these Mobil guys amiright" we could make it unlisted. I think. Also I believe I am dating myself because I'm pretty sure Exxon and Mobil have long since merged with Time Warner
An interesting thing about healthier Twitter alternatives is that it begs the question, how much health were we going to Twitter for versus how much were we servicing an addiction to the toxicity...software that lets us maintain and filter our own connections ...makes me take a hard look at myself and what I've "wanted" from social media since...2011 or so
44 year old piece of human garbage
