Mastodon is NOT a panacea!
Toxic behavior DOES exit within the Federverse.
Because each instance is it's own 'dumpster'... fires tend to be contained and are vastly more manageable.
We also have a LOT OF GOOD ADMINS who work to ensure any dumpster fires are contained.

As a rule, I try not to reshare stuff on social media that's just a screencap off of another social media site (e.g. tweets on tumblr, tumblr posts on facebook), especially if a) the original author isn't attributed, or b) a transcription of the screencapped text isn't included.
I know I shouldn't get as annoyed by this practice as I am, but ugh.
