Mastodon isn't Twitter. It doesn't behave like Twitter. You will be disappointed if you have actually entirely lost the ability to communicate without being triggered by the outrage algorithm. Don't bring that culture here, it's why we left earlier.

in what universe do you grow up "pledging allegiance to the flag" and not wind up thinking your country might be a tad fashy
