Mastodon is prone to bubbles.
When you look for new people to follow you check the public timelines, which by design mostly contains people already followed by people on your instance. It's hard to break out of that.
Here's what you do.
1) Go to https://mastodon.social/tags/YourTagHere but change the last bit to a hashtag of your choosing.
2) Click boost on all the cool stuff.
Also, use hashtags in your own posts and boost cool stuff with gay abandon!

@rrix @nightpool so far, i don't know why cybre.space is 503ing bridgy fed's inbox delivery POST. your site seems to be set up ok, eg http://notes.whatthefuck.computer/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:firstname.lastname@example.org works fine.
one interesting thing to note is that cybre.space evidently runs a fork of mastodon, https://github.com/cybrespace/mastodon . i doubt that's the cause of the problem here, but it's possible.

4. How does Mastodon work?
Every time I sign up for some website, I use a unique email address just for that site. The idea is that if spam arrives, I'll be able to see immediately who sold me out or whose database has been compromised.
Now I get email every day from some scammer. The message makes some bullshit claims, and demands a bitcoin payment.
I'm not surprised this is happening, but am surprised at the number and range of websites whose databases have been stolen.

oh wow, upon investigating the history of art-bots, I came across a Usenet bot called Mark V Chaney (a play on Markov Chain) that dates back to 1984! Possibly the first ever Art-Bot:
