I'm very disappointed in Mastodon tonight, and earlier today while I was mowing my lawn I was thinking about ways to move users to smaller instances and give them better information about which instance to choose.
Perhaps numbers or users on a given instance shouldn't be shown - I picked this instance because I didn't know what I was doing, didn't know the culture, and lacked imagination, and it's fair to assume that other people who've never used Mastodon will be just as ignorant of it.
@ifixcoinops Yeah, I got lucky that I chose an instance full of techno anarchist Canadian dads. That was nowhere in the description but sometime the fates smile on you. Also, our admin is great.
