If you have to explain every single internet meme with an article, you're going to get destroyed in the general election.
Somehow though, I don't think they have to, I think that the company publishing this article just doesn't have anything of substance to report.
How about we try just journalism first.
No, mastodon has been promoted as a free software ware suite that enables people to host their own social network and communicate with others hosting their own social network. By its nature it cannot be free of any ideas at all, because it is a permissionless network formed by nodes of permissionless software.
All I see are authoritarian ideologues who want to break it because they cannot control the discussion.
Lol if you're actually on there, you'd know it isn't a problem at all. On instances with federation to Gab and other instances with a right wing presence, you don't hardly see anything offensive if ever. On instances that block them it is a bunch of pantifa wailing about "YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE", to nebulous somebodies who can't hear them, because they read in a book about subversion that taking majority as a given and staunchly requiring allyship wins political movements.
What this is about is communist ideologues breaking open networks, demanding people pick a side in a battle between fringe loonies, attempting to destroy what they've claimed to hold dear. This isn't about Nazis, this is about authoritarian socialists who want to control dialogue and subvert discussion for their own ends. That's all there is to it. I hope all you clowns blacklist yourselves into an echo chamber, the beauty of free association is that regular people talk to each other and nutbags wall themselves off. The saying you hate the most, "sunlight is the best disinfectant", being proven true by you all drifting back into the obscurity from whence you came. You can't subvert FOSS, you can't win in a marketplace of ideas. You're right next to your Nazi bretheren: on the wrong side of history, on the trash heap of bad ideas.
Learning how to generalize used to be called a liberal arts education.
I really like things that are minimalist, fast and resource-efficient.
So Windows has always been far from my machine. I don't understand how people can use Windows. The name of this wilderness, shouldn't be windows, but wagon.
What a stupid as shit article.
It was an issue with my instance.
