If you’re on the iOS 12 beta and are getting the constant update alert bug, there’s an actual update out to fix that now.

I had hoped my first impression of Mastodon would be a good one, but this Wil Wheaton fiasco has really ruined it. I'm still going to try this service but I had hopes it would be a platform unlike Twitter. As someone new to the service, I'm having a hard time telling the difference.

I'm not happy with how the Wil Wheaton situation was resolved. An admin was overwhelmed with frivolous reports about him and felt forced to exile him. I've said before that I think it sets a dangerous precedent on how a large group of people can mobilize to drive anyone off the fediverse. Mob rule is universally dangerous: Mods and admins must examine evidence and decide based on wrongdoing and danger, and not on how many times someone was reported.
