Decentralize - for real! Move away from mastodon.social and find a small and cozy instance. #decentralize

It is very difficult for white people on the fedi to accept people that don't look like them have a very different experience in these spaces.

White folks actively look for people to affirm their biases and call this diversity rather than not taking the easy way out and just learning something new.

This is the baseline culture for a lot of instances. This behavior is acceptable in alleged progressive spaces.

And this is one of the main obstacles to us coming together.

Google Fi's terms are insane. You have to agree to let them pass all your data over a vpn to Google's network.

All. Your. Data.

They say it's to "enhance your privacy and security."

There is no privacy or security when sending all your data to the worlds biggest privacy violator.

And even that's not true, because in that timeframe, bezos gets richer, too.

Datagueule qui parle de captation de l'attention et de réseaux sociaux avec @angiegaudion dedans, c'est 👌 :blobcatheart:

Trop hâte de la diffuser autour de moi :3

Remember that it would take you MORE than 2020 years to get richer than Bezos at the rate of 7000$/hour. Let it sink in for a second.

Make sure that not a cent of your money goes to Amazon at all. Close your account. Everything will be fine. Trust your local shops and retailers. Use your privilege to accept the discomfort of having to shop a bit further, to wait a bit longer for goods that you will buy somewhere else, online or IRL.

The Guardian — Concerns over safety at Amazon warehouses as accident reports rise

“Hundreds of stricken Amazon workers are needing urgent medical attention. Conditions are hellish."

"...the accident was reported by an Amazon worker who would not give their name because they were “worried about getting sacked”."

@mcpaccard this is not a conversation about entitlement; that certainly came far out of left field.

That's not at all what this was about, but maybe there's a language barrier? Regardless, have a nice day.
@mcpaccard so if you don't want conversation why are you posting it? This is what I struggle to understand with this weird trend of social media usage. The point of these platforms is to engage in discourse.

Isn't it selfish to want others to read your thoughts/messages but you don't want to hear theirs?

Doesn't this style of mental note taking belong in a private diary/journal or on a blog where others can't respond?

I honestly want to know what you as an author get out of this; this is nothing personal.

It makes me wonder if we should create a feature to allow you to post into your own timeline so you can see it but nobody else can
@mcpaccard @feld Sorry to be a total stranger reacting to your toot, but I don't get it either, if you do not want a conversation or advice from total strangers, you should not post something a lot of total strangers can see ?

Isn't it the base principle of a public toot to be readable to anybody ? And also a base principle of a public social network to be able to interact with any member ? If you wish to express your view only to your follower, you can make a "followers-only" toot. If you want to express yourself, and hope to read, but you don't want anybody to be able to react to your post, you should use a blog, or any other way of expression that is not a social network ?

Can't even have a nice little rant about without having FOSSdudes and techbros coming at you with their hot takes about how you're doing it wrong.

@mcpaccard @linuxine this is somehow turning hostile for reasons I don't understand, but I need to ask: exposing the lies... to whom?

You didn't tag anyone, so you might as well have put posters on my window and run away. You're not a journalist either, and this isn't a journalistic outlet.

So who is your audience here? What is your goal other than "hey everyone look at this!!!!"

It's basically social media graffiti; you want your message spread but you don't want anyone to engage in discourse with you.

It's extremely selfish and rude honestly. Regardless of opinions on the behavior, some people still pay for their data by the megabyte. Their data IS currency and you're robbing them of it. At least they could get something out of it and it wouldn't be a net loss if you were willing to engage in discourse on the topic

ALSO, being on a social media platform is not a free call for people to burden you with demands for conversation or debate.

I am free to post whatever I want on here, ppl are free to answer (in the limits of politeness and intellectual honesty, which is obviously lacking when someone accuses me of refusing discussion when I was talking about something else entirely).

But I am also free to do whatever I want with the replies I get and call ppl out when it bears a load of BS.

Oh great, now a bunch of people have barged into my mentions, wondering "why would I post public toots if I refuse conversations?"

Well my dudes, UNSOLLICITED ADVICE IS NOT A CONVERSATION. It is someone who read my criticism about a service's communication as a call for alternative services.

If you can't read or can't comply with the basics of human interaction, I can't do anything for you, duddo.

When people online (especially women) post something that is not explicitly asking for advice, PLEASE, just PLEASE refrain yourself from giving any. If I want to know which software to use or whatever, I will ask clearly.
