I know it's stupid, but even talking to @munin here is more pleasant… the space to not have to artificially constrain what I'm trying to say leads to at least slightly better elucidation of what I'm thinking.

@munin @lojikil It's definitely a more chill space. Although, sometimes I have to fight the urge to distribute links like I do at the birdhouse. Then I don't and I feel good about it.

@ulfur @munin hmmm I dunno, it might actually be interesting to do so here, because you could provide more than 5 word analysis thereof.

@ulfur @lojikil people react positively to headline - link - commentary like I just posted

@lojikil @munin this is also true. Why I only just discovered that *cough*after having not gotten notifications of comments/replies *cough*...

@munin @lojikil very true! And the high signal/low noise ratio is much better here.

@ulfur @munin so I don't have an issue with that so much as I have a fuck-ton of people who follow me on birdsite and either don't respond or just respond for purposes of posting shitty memes. It's fun like... once a year now. I'm married for God's sakes.

@munin @lojikil I have a similar experience; though, fewer follows. *sniffs armpits* I've showered. WTH?

@lojikil @munin One should also remember that Birdcage's algos also fucked up everyone's TL, jist to squeeze in promoted and "you might like" bullshit.

@ulfur @munin oh gosh I hate those. Also Birdsite's promoted tweets algorithm has been *terrible* lately, showing me the same ad over and over again throughout the day. One damn ad. Nothing else.

@ulfur @lojikil uBlock Origin + dns sinkholes + very aggressive blocklists + greylisting

I have to actively bypass all those things to see a promoted tweet ;-)

@lojikil @munin

It's amazing what firey hoops of hell one has to jump through in order to preserve sanity.

@munin @ulfur it's a shame we need like 500MiB of shite running in Chrome/Firefox just so that we can have a decent web experience tho. I use DNS quite a bit internally, so that I don't have to manage everything on my son's & lady's devices, but still...

@munin @lojikil

Wanna know the kinda obvious, more screwed up part? Character limitations have become muscle memory. We've now been trained to not completely speak our minds. And that's a cryin' shame.

@lojikil @ulfur I have been getting a bit better as I spend time here. Less stress trying to fit it into the box as well.
