I came to Mastodon because it was a Nazi free alternative to Twitter. I chose my instance because it was tech related, not politics.
It just goes to prove the fact that politics is literally everywhere and you can't hide from the problems facing society.
So if that means fighting fascists and ruining their move to Mastodon, then so be it.
On a better subject, support for Polls is almost ready in Mastonaut.
One thing that will probably also go in the same release is detaching the handling of stream events from the active columns. Currently you only get notification events if a notification column is installed.
Splitting this will allow Mastonaut to serve notifications locally for all logged-in accounts (which you’ll be able to turn off, of course.)
@tonyarnold For the first point: This is actually a feature 😄 and you can turn it off in the app preferences.
Keyboard shortcuts were planned for the first release, but it turned out to be more complicated than I anticipated, so I pushed it to a further release.
And the reason I haven’t made a help book yet is because I feel a lot of the App’s UX is subject to change, and I didn’t want to spend the time this task deserves until the app is more solid.
I do appreciate all the feedback though!
@tonyarnold You can send them here or to firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer. 😊
@kai Yes but this is absolutely out of proportions. The CBP treats everyone from a “guilty until proven innocent” standpoint.
Just for comparison: Once in Denmark my bag was flagged by a “dangerous substances” chemical test.
Wanna know what happened? They re-tested the bag on a different machine, which gave a negative result, returned it to me, and said “have a nice day”. I don’t wanna know how much shit I’d have to go through if this had happened in the US.
I love visiting the US and I have several friends there, but the CBP behaviors are getting completely out of hand. This makes me less and less likely to want to visit, and I with democrat candidates would push for a complete change in this policy.
@shadowfacts Yes, lol, same! I was thinking of it the whole time I was working on this.
