Fashies on Masto. Show more
The thing about the alt-reich and fashies is that they invade and co-opt things that they consider a) culturally well connected and/or b) a threat to their message. It's going on in the synthwave community right now thanks to w* and it'll probably start again in the goth community soon.
It was only a matter of time before Masto got invaded. Organization to do this is probably happening on Voat or Discord. I'm surprised it took this long.
White supremacists on twitter just doxxed my friend and have convinced the University of Pennsylvania to condemn (and possibly remove her) for talking about pedagogical practices for equity. If you have any standing in academia, please email Kathleen Brown, Beth Wenger, Peter Holquist, and Eve Troutt Powell at UPenn’s history department and tell them what a mistake they’re making.

i think a lot of the people criticizing mastodon's development are way too hard
criticizing twitter's decisions is one thing very different.
this is not some commercial black box - this is our work. if it's bad it's partly because you're not doing shit about it.
i don't like people coming to a free software and requiring stuff and feeling entitled to it being perfect. developers are just like you, people who need money and have a shitty job that already takes most of their time.
