What's up with social media that sound like dermatological conditions
"I have pleroma"
"I have diaspora"
"I have vero"
"I have masto"
"I have tinder"

Friendica sounds like a sarcastic portmanteau of "friend" and "indica", a condition in which your skin turns violet

@nonphatic pleroma is the most medical sounding out these ones imo

@Gargron @nonphatic that's why you say you have a fediverse account: software is boring, its the people that matter.

@nonphatic "I'm Google positive..."
"I've got Attention Deficit postActiv Disorder"
"I just got prescribed some medical Kinja" (OK, that's a blog platform, but it's kinda social networky)
