@esp Yeah and the worst part is it seems like not even fedi are immune to it, even with all the social misfits who you think would know better.
When I pointed out that maybe someone should ask Chelsea Manning permission for @xychelsea I was told "they're public anyway so I don't need permission" and "you can just block the bot."
So disrespectful, and completely missing the point.
But do not fret
AI can’t take
Your ad job yet
@esp No doubt. Respect goes out the window when it comes to famous people.
1) Did you even ask if you could do that? I'm willing to bet you didn't. Yes, you should ask. It's polite. Maybe people don't want their shit syndicated on a platform they don't use, or they have a fedi account already.
2) Syndicating people in that manner is some bizarre form of celebrity worship imo. It also strikes me as impersonation.
3) Ever stop to think people don't want to see posts from that place?
4) Has it occurred to you that all these things /bother/ some people?
Am I the only one who finds those bots that only repost users whomst you can't interact with on Fedi to be ultra annoying?
@bryan Pretty much. And a lot of crossposters I've seen are used to just do things like rebroadcast Chelsea Manning and stuff and it's like
Man, if I wanted to see that, I'd go use
Oh here I am my IRC dev side is showing, line length. I think of messages as lines.
I mean things like line length mismatch, cultural differences, broken threads where you only see half the participants, etc. I think are very obvious problems.
I could make a thinkpiece about how crossposters are rubbish and are primarily devices to annoy both and Masto users but I think I couldn't say anything that wasn't already extremely obvious.
Centuries of science and we can't make a form of estradiol that isn't gritty as fuck or stays under the tongue like it's supposed to
@kellerfuchs the main twitter -> mastodon crossposter has gotten its write access blocked by twitter yet again, meaning they REALLY don't want the crossposter to work it seems
Only works in our favor because the only crossposter users who are NOT annoying are those who heavily tailor the content their crossposter puts out to mastodon culture and even disable their crossposter sometimes.
so what if we build all of our GUIs in electron but lift "single electron theory" from physics and render all of it on like a supercomputer or something </psycho>
@Elizafox this is just so you can have your own personal oil rig, isn't it?
This is an example of Elly; a shitposting Fedi user specifically tuned for the reproduction of dank memes.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: we should convert all the CO2 in the atmosphere back into oil and pump it back into the ground.
