Stay here please. Even the toughest nerds are happy to read your nice posts from lovely Amsterdam.
Don't think foss is that impottent. You are an importent part of the cimunety and we like to have you around here
@Gina find an instance that fits the theme of what you want to see. The beauty of Mastodon is that you can go to any instance you want and have basically the same experience.
Here he posted a picture of people on a demonstration, suggesting "maybe you will meet someone", which means attacking them:
I reported that too, nothing was done. And obviously others find this funny.
No I am not kidding. I don't like being with fascists, whether left or right wing.
Du bist ja eine echt süße Dramaqueen...
(...) ""maybe you will meet someone", which means attacking them"
Richtig übersetzt heißt das: "Maybe someone knows someone."
Und es meint (sinngemäß): "Liebe Trierer Timeline, vielleicht erkennt ihr ja jemanden auf dem Foto, von dem ihr noch nicht wusstet, dass diese Person so drauf ist."
Aber hey, "Skandaaaal!!11!! Draaaamaaaa!!!11!"
Unfortunately, sarcasm is hard to catch.
As I know who the original poster is and that he works in a care job, I can imagine how it must be running into Covid-deniers.
If you translate "recognising someone" with meeting and attacking then I cannot help you.
As one of the mods I researched the posts and looked at the context and didn't see harm.
I saw sarcasm and annoyance with covid deniers.
@Gina you should stay here and be an absolute weirdo here, doesn’t have to be all IT related here I’m sure
@Gina My friend added my toots to a tech-related RSS feed, but it turns out I do more weird posts and Japanese posts than tech, so that kinda started flooding him :-)
@Gina not sure about instances though. I'm happy on mine, but I can understand it's not ideal for everyone since it's a non-English instance.
@Gina I like the idea of having an alternate identity. This way you can post where you like, as you like.
@Gina Whoops, fat fingers...
Anyway, I'm waiting on my x0r.be account to be approved so I can keep running this instance for friends/family and go be a weirdo over there ;)
@Gina the whole 'choose an instance' is hard. No-one fits just one community. I tried having multiple accounts, but it was too much work. So maybe just follow more / other people?
@Gina So liberating, highly recommended. Then you get followers and they keep limiting our expression again. Cycle of life I guess 🤷
@Gina I'd like it if you stayed, even if your posts aren't always IT related (they don't exactly have to be).Your posts are enjoyable usually.
But the decision is yours ultimately.
@Gina One of the nice things about the fediverse is that you're already there. Where ever you go, you're already posting on their site. Maybe look up more users from different servers? I peek into the firehose that is 'federated' often enough to pick up some fellow weridos on occasion.
@Gina I cannot really answer your question, since a good recommendation depends a lot on your specific interests. Especially on those you feel are falling short on this instance.
You might be less imposed to IT now, but this too can change. Also, you might have a different job now, but maybe you still find the things interesting here that attracted you in the beginning. Nothing keeps you from having two accounts.
Finally, as always: Don't listen too much to random people on the internet. :)
What means "doesn't play much of a role"?
Even though #foss may not play a role in professional life, I cannot imagine it does not play a role in life any more.
At work everyone uses #cots... But #foss still plays a huge role for me. I think I would still write with pen on paper without because I wouldn't trust a commercial text editor 😂
@Gina you can still stay here if you want too 😊
Also, please forgive me you might have posted about it but last time I checked you were working in the IT department of an association. Is that job over?
@Gina I don't think Fosstodon is just for Foss. You're still a geek, stay here it's fine. 🙃 If you move, let me know so I can keep following you.😇
@Gina you could come be a dragon with us at dragonscave.space. we'll even light a fire to warm your welcome cave.
