I was gonna toot more and tweet less. what happened with that.

along with the exhortations to new folks to use content warnings, I would like to exhort masto veterans to be patient with new users, and to *please* include explanations of common abbreviations so the new folks can get a handle on them. examples:
pol = politics
uspol = US politics
mh = mental health
tf = transformation
+/- signs = positive or negative modifiers, so "uspol +" would refer to a story about US politics that is actually good (for a change).

feel free to reply to this with other common-ish examples if you can think of them!

To toot here, or to build my own activity server and web client.

A civil right to housing.

Public health and welfare.

A distinct lack of thermonuclear war.

Evacuation of drowning lands.

Survival of the species in all its rich variety.

I want to get away from twitter and facebook. But I want the people there to be reachable.

Considering doing a bot gateway.

But suspect Big Social would step on that somehow.
