hey if anybody's interested in trying out a new reddit alternative called tildes, lmk and i'll send you an invite. it's currently a small-ish community with a couple hundred active members, but the creator's goal is to curate a space with higher standards for quality content and respectful discussion. there's way more interesting stuff on there i've discovered because the feed isn't just memes and circlejerky posts. definitely a solid 8/10 for me.

people that compare mastodon's insistence on policing its communities and ousting bad actors to tumblr .. being tumblr, have never actually been deep in tumblr culture.

you havent lived until you've had a 13 year old send you death threats for reclaiming the word 'fat' in regards to yourself only, or discourse over whether or not its okay to dig up and sell human bones from graves

Quick tip to all my fellow revolutionaries: If you are ever being recorded without permission, start loudly playing Disney music. Use the system against itself. That fucking Mouse won't let that footage be uploaded anywhere visible.

When you spend all your time ripping content off of reddit, news sites, tumblr, twitter, you're also bringing into the fediverse the etiquette of those places. The mentality of clout farming, the lack of care about what does onto the timeline, the dismissal of things that take more than 500 characters to talk through as drama, the soapboxing.
Those who are still being regularly exposed to the toxicity of other sites probably won't even notice they're doing anything different.
When so much of the timeline is content that clearly came from elsewhere, what do people have to keep them here?
Just some thoughts.

also the fact that someone can spend literally 80 dollars a second for three months and still be making money faster than they're spending it is so obscene that really the only reasonable response to it in a just society would be to expropriate said people, but we don't live in a just society so i guess that's not surprising

the fact that michael bloomberg has spent over 400 million dollars and his net worth has *increased* in the timeframe since he started spending should be a wake-up call to people that billionaires do sub-zero amounts of work for the money they make

🚨 IMPORTANT SBC STUFF 🚨

it feels pretty on brand that the new york times would sooner give an op-ed to the taliban (who want to create a fundamentalist islamic state which subjugates women, minorities, degenerates, and infidels and did so in afghanistan when they had power) than to someone who advocates for not killing poor people
