@peanutbutter144 exactly. i think design trends are sad because holo was functional and coherent, but now everyone looks down on it because it looks dated
I really wish there was a 'save post' function so I could come back to a thread later to see how the conversation has developed.
Currently I usually only ever see a post once, unless someone boosts it later.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong, please tell me if so, but I would like to just press a button on a post and have it saved in a private list (without notifying the poster).
Kinda (read: exactly) like reddit's save function.
IDK tho maybe that isn't how microblogging is supposed to work.
Librem.one, Moderation Discussion
Admins: perhaps you should consider blocking social.librem.one. This instance’s policies could affect the safety of many of us on the fediverse. The instance automatically rejects both local and remote reports, meaning there is no way to bring bad users and content to the attention of their moderators. See here: https://source.puri.sm/liberty/smilodon/commit/9cae431902a2c0ce6438c6722a3a901e279c78fc
In discussion within their chatrooms, I received this response:
quick note about reporting (copied from other chat room): this is correct, after deep deliberation we have concluded that no company should control speech - we have a “stay safe” guide in the pipeline, but briefly, block bad users and report illegal content - in the long-term federated, community-managed blocklists are likely the answer
This does not seem right to me - if we’re subjected to their users, the only action admins can take is to block their server rather than have our issues addressed. This makes for a poor member of the fediverse.

"don't use Discord! they are an evil proprietary service"
"okay. what do you propose instead?"
"ummmmmmmmmmmmm matrix? or irc"
"come on those are all just as good!"
"they are not. that is the point."
"so what, we should all use Discord then?"
"no - we should stop saying that what we have is good enough, and make something better."
@Matter @mooshoe Why does Mozilla need to be ideologically pure with regard to the development process? They're going to use the tools that suit them. Millions of Linux users install proprietary binary blobs to get basic processor, GPU, or Wifi functionality. They install non-free software like games and use Google services like crazy. The point I'm trying to make is: It's not the end of the world and it's not going to herald the downfall of Mozilla/OSS.
- online & IRL identity completely separate, not linked (you cannot find your real name from your username)
- online & IRL identity linked but different (you can find your real name from your username)
- online & IRL identity linked & identical (your real name is your username)
- something else?
Which one, and why?
