part of my role at glitch is leading support and neutralizing abuse on the platform. we'll occasionally have folks (especially teens) coming in really hot on the support queue–saying nasty stuff that i know they learn from mostly Being Online. their intent is to get technical support but their rhetoric makes it also an abuse case and opportunity to be educated on how to appropriately ask for help. that education piece is hard and sometimes hurtful, but it's important!
Unfortunately I have to stop actively working on #Metatext for a while due to health issues. I really wish I could implement Mastodon 4 features and squash every bug, but it's not possible for me to do so right now.
I know the app has become important to a lot people, so I'm open to a new maintainer who can carry on its values of privacy and accessibility taking it over if there's interest and a fit. Email email@example.com if you (or your organization) are interested
annoyed that nobody is arguing with me about this. you're all too conciliatory.
me sowing microservices: hahaha this is awesome! every service gets their own completely customized deployment strategy and ops burden that scales with their need!
me reaping microservices: oh god all 6 people who knew about this service are gone and it has a completely customized deployment strategy that has been entirely outstripped by its new criticality
