I find it both disturbing and sad to come across a profile on here (or anywhere) only to discover that this person has mostly dedicated their space to proclaiming (either directly or passive aggressively) their animosity towards another type of person or group.
What has to be going on in one's head and how do you get the point where you think "okay, this profile that is meant to be all about me and convey what I'm in to .... I'm gonna use it to bash XYZ type of person"?
@email@example.com life is too short for hate.
@purple truth. Words of wisdom my friend.
@self My pet peeve on masto is block threats. Toots like "blah blah btw if you reply with blah I'll immediately block you". Like who tf cares? I read that as some sort of baiting people, and compulsively block these accounts.
Similarly, I see accounts whose bios read "don't reply me don't follow me don't tell me anything", but they don't use relevant features of masto like follower approval and default toot visibility.
@self and then there are profiles that are like "Chikim numget"
@Shitlord I'm much cooler with that :P (assuming 'that' is innocent silliness and not some dog whistle or something I'm just unaware of, haha).
Me too, holy shit. That's why I unsubscribed to childfree and justunsubbed (ironically, lol)
@self That sort of energy should be channeled into something creative. Something like art (especially non-racist art).
Lusers unite! Despite the name, no loyalty or alignment with any software or technology are prerequisite - we welcome all! This instance is dedicated to inclusion and will not become yet another negative "tech" stereotype! For example, if you're not okay with people of different races or genders... please move along. If you think it's harmful for projects to adopt a code of conduct or ethical license... please move along. There are plenty of other Mastodon instances out there, and I would like to have mastodon.linuxlusers.com be one of the few Linux/open-source related instances that does not reaffirm stereotypes!
