I have been off of The Birb™ since January. Shut down my person FB at the same time due to the Nazi threats. Soon after shut down my FB page with 45,000 people on it and my Instagram.

You need to detox your brain from this stuff. I'm not kidding. You were programmed to do a lot of shit by these companies to benefit them and their outrage culture. They want you to fight us. They don't want you to be in control of your own thoughts.

DETOX.

⚠️ Mastodon is not anti-Nazi, or anti-harassment. (Not even Mastodon.Social is very anti-harassment.) Anyone can run an instance, including Nazis. Including abusers. Including techbros who don't give a shit.

This is why your choice of instance matters. Know who your admin is. Check your blocklist. Check the code of conduct.

Not everyone cares about your safety, and no one is really required to.

Be kind. Be careful. Punch Nazis.

friendly reminder to wrap your heavily political posts inside CW tags.

some people here (including me) abandoned birdsite for the purpose of avoiding the worsening Political Discourse there for the sake of their own mental wellbeing.

seeing all of it again around on mastodon doesn't help them at all, and pretty much the reason social media slowly fatigues me

Tip for new folks: If you join an instance, then decide another instance is a better fit for you, you can create a new account and migrate your follower list over! It's in preferences -> import, or https://[your.instance]/settings/import

Please direct your friends to joinmastodon.org or another instance of your choice like octodon.social, toot.cat or toot.cafe, etc. mastodon.social is "default" choice for a lot of people and it's getting kinda hammered right now.

I'll put my motivational advice pups here because they provide such deep truths

Keeping with @eylul 's idea about decentralization, here's a few more instances

kitty.town : A very very safe space (admin can be controvesial; not a bad thing)

tootplanet.space : General ish with more than a few writers

a.weirder.earth : Small, general instance

When I joined masto, I gravitated towards following creative peeps and noticed a thing that's pretty common to all of us: we feel guilty for promoting places that people can buy our work or otherwise support us financially. So I started the hashtag for that very reason. Got an Etsy page? Online store? Patreon? Selling a piece of art? Throw that tag on it. Do it with unfettered abandon. Everyone else: Look at that tag for artists to support. Buy their stuff. Help them create. <3

new folks:

please remember to make heavy use of CWs

they are there because they are useful to reduce harm for folks

instead of being forced to read a post in order to determine if they want to interact with its contents or not (which is not a choice), you can know what the post is about and choose whether it's worth engaging that or not
