Mastodon needs an edit button. Froze over...
i hate food discourse when it has this haughty attitude of "you dont eat THIS THING??? whats WRONG with you" like some ppl cant handle the texture. some ppl just dont like it. dont be a ass
I reliably find those who argue most viciously that "anybody should be able to anything and there should be no banned words, even slurs" are really saying "I'm worried people will yell at me when they realise how bigoted I am so I'm trying to layout my excuse preemptively"
Mastodon doesn't use smart algorithms to fill my feed with 'interesting content' and yet I find more interesting things here than on twitter.
Note to twitter: Keep It Simple, Stupid.

So, everyone, meet @fernweh (she totally followed me here, which is awesome, since I could barely find my way back)... @kemonine has been helping me get my bearings and gave me great suggestions on who to follow here. And you may already know @Nobilis from that other place that shall not be named...
Well, this has been too much fun. It's getting dark, and there's not a chance in hell I'll hit my 50K words by midnight, now, unless I dump all my Twitter, Facebook, mastodon, and messenger posts into a word doc and call it a dream sequence, so... yeah. :) How'd you do, @Nobilis ? I actually gave up weeks ago - have a pinched nerve in my neck and it's making parts of my hand feel very weirdly numb, like they're just coming off Novocain and about to hurt like hell. Only...they're not.
That Federated timeline is a little scary. Kind of like the Twitter firehose. :)
Is there a way to pause the stream? If it starts filling up too fast?
You know this was designed by programmers when the filter says "Filter out by regular expressions." Probably good practice for my day job.
