I like how when I click a link in Mastodon it opens immediately instead of taking me on a world tour of 5 different redirect servers on 3 different continents

@abgd See? Even with it took me a while to understand what @nolan is referring to, and shitposting is relatively easy as well. Now who is the weird flag, highrise building and pause button?

If the number was small you could memorize them, but these are not very memorable or distinguishable sequences.

@abgd True, but many emoji are utterly useless and translating literal puns to visual ones is something that I think is way beyond any current algorithm and better left as an exercise for the :poop: :envelope: er.

@abgd @nolan Doesn't work as well, and the in-joke is a bit more 'in', but I've been thinking of as :strawberry::strawberry::strawberry:

@abgd The 'display name' Could possibly be used for that. One of many problems, though, is that it can contain only very few emojis.

@Roshbud Most of nobody, I guess. It's just a lure made to tempt you to relinquish all your worldly posessions. >:)

Why I don't buy into all the 'Mastodon is taking off' hype I'm not sure it stands for what I think it stands for, but if so, ewwww. :D

Facebook: Everyone knows me. I am me

Twitter: Some people know me. I am a persona based on me

Mastodon: Nobody knows me. I am a transient, sentient beam of ultraviolet light

Explaining the powers of instance admins over user data and identity, I find I far too often use the phrase 'weakly godlike'.

This site is making me feel like I should read up more on Usenet federation (and censorship). Any suggestions?

Why I don't buy into all the 'Mastodon is taking off' hype is still available. You people are not serious.
