Genuinely surprised to see @Gargron arguing against broadly accepted standards of accessible design in the name of subjective aesthetics. Part of the appeal of Mastodon is the community's acceptance and support of underrepresented groups and people who feel unwelcome on the usual platforms. Yes, every instance and app can dictate its design, but accessibility should be the default, full stop. Fight on, @aardrian. github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

@hawaii @Gargron @aardrian
lol i've been using my own theme for so long that i didn't even realize the default doesn't color links differently.
