On the #fediverse, it's rare to see a day go by without extremely toxic back-and-forth between team #pleroma and team #mastodon. I'll be honest, the topics of discussion confuse me, I do not know enough about security and what not.
But the absolute vility.
Help me understand.
Also, will the fediverse survive this or should we be ready to move on? Because if every camp bullies until one is left then the fediverse will be in no better place than twitter: toxic wasteland ruled by one.
@yarmo The Fediverse will survive. It's survived worse.
When did the back-and-forth get toxic, instead of joking? A year ago it was downright friendly.
@wizzwizz4 Ever since I registered my account, I remember bad toots surrounding pleroma vs mastodon. At this moment right now, I'm watching well I don't even know how to describe this "conversation" between an ex pleroma dev and people on team mastodon.
The thing is, the fediverse IS diversity. I will not participate in the digital equivalent of a dictatorship.
@sean true! and they all defend the developer of the software they are running. Religious war vibes.
I wonder if federated networks are doomed because of this human flaw. Maybe peer to peer is where it's at…
