@ataraxia937 I've also heard from others that additional instances silenced/blocked us, but no specific names
@ataraxia937 scholar.social silenced us. Here is a link to their toot and a transcription of it:
> The instance at fosstodon.org has been silenced from scholar.social
You can still follow anyone from there, but their admin has explicitly abdicated responsibility for the conduct of their users, including the use of slurs
I'm staying on Fosstodon whether I agree or disagree with what Kev said. I'm here because I wanted to be a part of a community around one of my passions.
Thats why this place exists. There are people from all different walks... lets show grace towards each other, even if we disagree.
Some of you guys scream inclusion (which I strongly support) but in the same breath troll someone who disagrees with you on a issue.
Lets show grace, tone down being self-absorbed and keep it focused on FOSS.
@mooshoe It simply cannot happen on the internet unfortunately :(
Any social media/forum I've been on has its share of toxic users.
@julius Yeah had to reread the first sentence 😂
@stevenroose This is the first toot about the "drama" I've made because I do not care about it. Simply ignoring it saves you stress and time, people.
I would much rather be tooting and reading toots about FOSS and technology, which is what I have decided to do.
If anything, the uproar about it kind of proves @kev's point. It was literally one toot.
@kk Agreed. Instance admins should not be making choices for everyone part of their instance.
15 years ago, EFF's @doctorow told Microsoft:
1. That DRM systems don't work
2. That DRM systems are bad for society
3. That DRM systems are bad for business
4. That DRM systems are bad for artists
5. That DRM is a bad business-move
He was right.

Changed the icon and GTK theme since last #ScreenshotSunday
@mike That is an amazing idea 😂
Sometimes, the moonlight will:
- draw a footpath on the water. If you walk it, it will cut you. Dance.
- forge a sword on the rocks. If you can pick it up, you'll know what to do.
- leave a ribbon for your lover's hair. If you tie it on, they can untie it.
- simply shine. On you.

@kev Why did you chose Zoho after using Fastmail?
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
