#advice for #newbie folk

Hi! Have you ever been so *sick* of politics you had to go AFK or at least AF something *because it was all politics and overwhelming*?

IF YES: You're like *most* people. Most people have limitations like that. CWs allow for people, including you, to *keep using Masto* and *not have to be overwhelmed like you were at those times*. That's why they're our friends. We should use them.

IF NO: Good for you! Seriously. But be nice to the rest of us, please. We're not you.

FURTHERMORE: If you think this is some line in the sand, it isn't. Politics gets discussed on Masto all the time.

But the instances where it's discussed out loud 24/7 are in some cases locked out of a lot of the fed or in others are just really stressful for most people to be in, so, they just *aren't there*, and a lot of us mute those instances.

If you want to go there, go there, politic all you wanna, but *people can just block you here* and then far fewer are hearing what you have to say.

Good to see you pop up in the timeline BTW :blobcat:


You too, relative stranger! ;P Haven't seen you in a while. How's things? What are you up to?

@sydneyfalk Still making games. Pushing a crowdfunding campaign for the next three days. (so tired)

Also kids started school so I'm up early again.

But all is well!


*nodnods* The push, and the lifenings. The stuff that happens in between the unintentional efforts and behind the scenes of the intentional efforts.
