New Instance, newly-edited #introductions post:
Hi, I'm Pamela! I live by a great lake (well, it's alright). I really love animals and have a pet turtle and cats. I like to learn new things and work with my hands. I like ecology, #STEM, #gameing, #openbsd, books and nature, and I enjoy painting but don't spend enough time doing it.
I have #agoraphobia and write about that pretty regularly, now, as well as my experiences with microwork.

I bought a "lemon drop" melon and then regretted spending $5 on a glorified cantaloupe just because they didn't have canary melons and I didn't want watermelon
But holy crap, this is ugly as hell but it tastes like someone shoved 10 melons and a bag of lemons into my melon
moderation philosophy, opinions my own and not official v.c policy or even necessarily shared by the other admins Show more
look. i’m conflict-averse, i’m trying not to be so Extremely Online, and like it says in my profile, i’m “perpetually out of brain-spoons.” i definitely don’t have the time or energy to facilitate a ~Debate~ & i’m just trying to maintain a non-awful social space here.
as a practical matter, if it looks like a bunch of bullshit is headed toward my users, then i’m gonna do my best to cut it off at the source rather than make them individually do the work of blocking/reporting over & over again, and so i end up with a pretty heavy hand on the suspend button, probably heavier than it even needs to be.
so if a maximally open federation policy is important to you, then i can’t give you what you need at vulpine.club (consider migrating to mastodon.social or pleroma.site). and if you’re an instance admin with more laissez-faire ToS than ours, feel free to reject reports from here, i’ll already have taken care of them on our end anyway.
but jesus haploid transmasculine christ, you don’t need to be a douchebag about it.
Everyone recommends Greenleaf and Blueberry for natural pigment watercolors and I thought they were out of business, but no, they're just off Etsy now.
They're sooooo pretty.
I think at some point my brain just decided all the kickass allies get their own subgroup where they're clearly among and belong with us and the details don't much matter. 👍
Then I kind of coast along until I watch a moisturizing soap commercial or something and What the Fuck?? Who the heck is this aimed at?

I was going to make fun of the Drumstick cereal as part of my "ridiculous things I've encountered in the grocery store" photo series
but then I actually bought the unicorn one and have now lost all disaffected judgmental eco-hipster points forever
It's magic cupcake flavored!
I cool toned my hair and added a bit of silver (selfie, [one] eye contact, boosts OK) Show more
You gax, I am becoming a person obsessed with their hair.
instance block Show more
I'd like to thank the follow bot from weedis dot life for pointing out their existence so I could add them to my ever-growing block list.
Tisha usually curls up into a sullen little ball, but tonight she's too hot and somehow taking up about three times the amount of space she should be.
🤔 I just typed out like six different emoji shortcodes that map to nothing before giving up. No :grr:, no :sullen:, no :cranky:, no :grouchy:, no :glowering:, no :loathing:...

“Here we see the extremely rare Mastodon heterosexual. Like many before him, he’s wandered into a harsh environment to which his kind are ill suited, he must adapt quickly, or risk defederation. He’s cautious, he begins to type his first post, a reply to a woman with “men stay away’ in her bio: ‘Has anyone told you how beautiful you are when you smile?’ Oh, dear.”
CW: about CoCs, subtooting some more than others Show more
A CoC should match your intentions. A user or participant should not read one and then be surprised by the actions you take to uphold it (or your failure to act).
We communicate our attitudes to the community with these documents. People use them to decide where to spend their time and how to approach working with you and your team. It's best to be honest and clear, not copy text expressing goals you don't share or write something meaningless.
