reminder to refer to the collective network as "fedi" instead of "masto".

lots of new people joining, and lots of media attention about Mastodon, we dont want a github situation where an implementation is thought of as synonymous with the tech.

the best part of computers is people can do things how they want to, so its important to make people aware of the different options :lainhappy:

“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”

—Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You Mr. Rosewater

Every now and then I encounter people who find it radical to think that maybe it'd be good if we treated other people well, or at least avoided treating them badly.

Such people tend to also have at hand reasons why specific sets of people should be treated worse than others.

It always surprises and saddens me a little. It shouldn't, by now, I'm old enough to know better, but not old enough to actually know better.
