That's quite sad.

I often see people complaining publicly about Mastodon development here, but I almost never see people thanking @Gargron and contributors for the work they're doing.
I'm sure most people have more positive feedback than negative to make but don't.

Mastodon might have its problems but it's still a great piece of software.

Send some love to Gargron and others.
Or contribute. This is free software, you know.

By the way, today's influx of new Mastodon users is brought to you by the news that 13% of :birdsite: 's revenue last year was from selling user data to Cambridge Analytica.

Hello ! 👋🏼 It’s so good to be back! ☺️

I am not sure if it will make it into /r/all or not, a part of me wants to see that, another part of me (and I'm sure a lot of old users agree!) thinks that would be too much of a good thing in such a short time.

On the other hand, you can't really pace publicity. It's a wave, a constellation of circumstances. It either happens or it doesn't, and if decentralization is to win over the silos, we need as many people aware of it as possible. So 🤷‍♂️
