I adore Wandersong so much. It's such a joyous, thoughtful, game.

Oh mastodon is still a thing. How’s everyone doing?

I’ve been enjoying the heck out of Dragon Quest XI. Now eagerly awaiting for Spider-Man to unlock.

Mastodon's web interface should probably treat all local and federated timeline media as potentially NSFW and hide the thumbnails by default. Put a toggle button at the top so it's easy to flip the switch when it's safe, though.

Cuz I totally just saw some things that cannot be unseen when I accidentally clicked on the local timeline button while sitting here in a public coffee shop with people standing behind me. Just sayin'. @Gargron

Going to sleep so I can wake up and play Dragon Quest XI.

I got The Messenger on Switch and let me tell you, folks. Choice video game right there. And incredible writing for a Ninja Gaiden-esque platformer.

wilw, Hardwick, metoo, people being assholes 

I don’t know why people are still thinking that they’re entitled to demand Wil make a statement about the accusation against Chris Hardwick. It was one accusation, multiple people said it was not true, AMC ended up giving him back his show, Nerdist put him back on theirs about page. If they can move on, why can’t you? What makes you think you have more facts than them?
Stop being an asshole.

I'm not happy with how the Wil Wheaton situation was resolved. An admin was overwhelmed with frivolous reports about him and felt forced to exile him. I've said before that I think it sets a dangerous precedent on how a large group of people can mobilize to drive anyone off the fediverse. Mob rule is universally dangerous: Mods and admins must examine evidence and decide based on wrongdoing and danger, and not on how many times someone was reported.

Mastodon was supposed to be a place were people didn't have to be afraid of angry hate mobs. Yet now people are celebrating the fact that an angry hate mob ran off someone without any cause.
Well done you pricks.

I'm now getting DMs of support because people are afraid if they agree publicly they'll be harassed next. That's not a good atmosphere folks.

Harassment and dogpiling are things we should've left in the toxic culture of the birdsite.

For mastodon.social users:

Dogpiling and harassment are off-limits no matter how justified you think you are. The rules are for everyone.

Strongly considering adding screenshot-dunking to the code of conduct as well. We don't need that culture here.

I know that I'm well-off, well-known, and as a CIS white hetro dude in America, I live life on the lowest difficulty setting. I know that I have very little to complain about.
But I still have feelings, and I really do care about the world and the people in it. What I see is a lot of anger and cruelty directed at the IDEA of me, from people who I just hope don't realize that it really does hurt me, in my heart, to be accused of being someone I am not, and to be the target of a hateful mob. 5/x

People who aren't willing to put in the effort for proper moderation systems, have no business trying to admin/moderate their own instance.

Seems pretty shitty that @TheAdmin @imbsky@mastodon.cloud is banning @wilw just because WIL is being harassed by other people. This is not how things are supposed to work. People shouldn't be bullied off of a platform. The Mastodon platform was supposed to be better than this, and mastodon.cloud is showing that is is not an instance that anyone should put any trust or faith into.

Somehow an unpopular opinion 

Don't be a dick to other people. Those are wise words to live by, but seems that so many people just like to spread hate anyway.
