Hello to new users and old hands alike!
Please remember that, on m.s and on any other Mastodon instance, your moderators are people, just like you. We don't use algorithms to find "problematic" toots, we don't see every toot made on our instance, and we occasionally have to eat and sleep.
If you see someone breaking the instance rules, please report it! (Click the kebab menu at the bottom right of a toot and select "Report <user>".) This helps us identify problems and keeps our instance safe!

The beauty of this place is that it can be whatever you want it to be.
If you want to joust with bigots, you can. If you want to roll with furry hackers, it's cool. If you're on an instance with a shitty admin, you can go to another one. You can shape the experience you want.
There are not behind the scene mechanisms feeding you specific content or trying to control what you see.
You are author of your experience here. Embrace that shit.
So I’m in a fun space art/engineering collective called ASAN.
We launched a tweet into space if you’d recall.
Today I’m pitching new ideas.
It’s 4:2000000... am... 🙃

"NPR teaches listeners about the proper care and feeding of white nationalists" https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2018/08/11/npr-teaches-listeners-on-the-proper-care-and-feeding-of-white-nationalists/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.9d4d73307798
Spot on. I listen to a lot of NPR, and I have to say that as this administration has worn on they've gotten very thin, presumably in the interest of "nonpartisanship" on fact-checking or challenging over the top shit
After sleeping on it, I think #Mastodon should rename ‘instances’ to ‘Communities.’
Instances feels too technical and I see even savvy people struggling to understand it.
I argue communities would make much more sense. It denotes much of the purpose behind _why_ this service has different instances, and many people will already be familiar with the concept from Reddit (the, what, sixth most popular site on the net?).
If zero cool was so good, why isn't there a one cool?
welcome to the new cybre folks! i hope your stay here is enjoyable, please feel free to make use of any of our cybre amenities 💽
