Bit of a newsflash: some people seem to think Mastodon is *only* for people who don't like company / service X, Y, Z.

Guess what? Mastodon is for everyone and anyone.

Don't confuse your thoughts, with those of everyone else.

When we advertise that we're available on Discord, Telegram, Google News etc it's not a suggestion that those are *only* where we are, or that they are the *best*.

Some people need to get a grip.

I really don't care what you use, do whatever makes you happy.

But every single time we seem to highlight one service, we get berated with to be blunt - tribal morons acting like we hurt their feelings on showing one service.

Time to grow up.

Use whatever makes you happy, stop being a dick about what others use and highlight at times.


@gamingonlinux That's also one of my worries. I'm not pushing content like you, but I do feel the "pressure" to use peertube over youtube (in my case) when creating videos.

In a similar fashion, there's this pressure not to use Google for search, no matter what you do and how you do it (i.e. go to a library and use a public computer). This is nonsense.

It happens when people have a negative ideals (don't do this) rather than a positive one (do this). It happens in technology and elsewhere.

@jtr Yeah and people who try to push like that, get muted by me. I have no time for negative tribal attitudes that just spread negativity.

@gamingonlinux @jtr why is it always western white progressive who push for collective ownership? did you not see what happens when "everyone" is the "owner" of a space? it's value goes to zero, when everyone owns it, no one cherishes it or wants to keep it nice, that is always someone else's job.
