Intro For Newbies In Five Hundred Characters Or Less:
If you like our weird, hang out.
If you don't like our weird, hang out and complain about it, but nobody will listen and we'll still be weird.
If you think we're destroying something, some of us will laugh at you secretly, but a lot of us will just pity you or assume you're misinformed.
If you come here and treat this like Twitter, that will be a gigantic mistake, and I do not recommend it.
That is all. ^_^ ❤
Addendum: Any responses of the form "but Mastodon IS destroying X" will not prove that it's true, make it true, or make you seem less pitiable.
Twitter's destroying itself by pandering to awful. GS is doing that too, but faster, and 'ironically'. Your favorite coffee place going away isn't Masto's fault either.
Toaster strudels just get destroyed, i.e. eaten, and nobody does it, it's just a universal constant.

This is a Mastodon instance run by the Interlinked Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit devoted to eliminating discrimination. We are an instance that blocks authoritarian political violence, ultra-nationalism, fascism, the alt-right, Stalinism, and authoritarian ideology in general. It's intended to be a safe place for those tired of violent rhetoric as well as a place safe from discrimination.
