Threaded platforms are great for discussion (Twitter/Mastodon). They're terrible at presenting authoritative information. Cf. any software project that's developed via forum - "To install, digest this 100-page thread".

Mastodon for Tech Folks is shutting down by the end of 2022. Please migrate your data immediately. This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
