Arriving, immediately trying to position yourself as a community leader, making an asinine, fuck-all point, and trying to Eugen how to do things better on the platform he's been running, all for your own ego.

Fuck off fuck off fuck off

@tomharris is this the person who i would assume would do this

@tomharris ah fuck does this happen, ive never been to many activist meetings

@roadrunner @tomharris went to a DSA meeting about a month ago, 2nd ever meeting since the inauguration, and they had to publicly announce that this wasn't just a place to pick up chicks

@aeonofdiscord @roadrunner @tomharris i should preface to say that the /vast majority/ are there for the right reasons, but its a real bummer when it was such a problem in the first meeting (which had tons of new ppl) that they had to bring it up in the 2nd

@roadrunner To be fair, I haven't been to many meetings either. I met one guy doing it at a local environmentalism group. He was dressed like an utter parody of the 'activism-as-an-aesthetic' trope though.

@tomharris (a) Been using/supporting Mastodon since the earliest days ( Not here to position myself or anything; just to support the first example of a beautiful/usable federated/decentralised network. (b) The point about users/people is one I’ve been making for years. It doesn’t pertain just to Mastodon (see (c) Regarding the “fuck off”s, thank you for giving me someone to test the block feature on.
