I think I'm going to call it done.
I could find another fedi instance, or risk clobbering my friend's small one again.
I could go make a cohost.
Or, I could accept the "screaming into the void" model of interaction is garbage, and stop playing.
There are people I'll miss, but I'm pretty convinced I won't miss the platform.
Pretty much everyone can reach me some other way, and this space doesn't really fulfill the "space we're mutually active in" drive reliably.
Fuck, I have a small telegram channel I dump my lewd content into and tend to get more reaction there out of the like 40 people subscribed to that rather than the uhhhh... 404 I have here.
If I want to get something off my chest or actually have a conversation, I have another community of about 40 people I can actually have decent realtime and asynchronous comms with.
Admitedly a lot of those 404 are repeats and otherwise dead accounts, but still.
@IrisKalmia Understandable, not really sure I can disagree, but I still feel like something is lost.
