can we please try to calm down a little on the pleroma = bad people always thing

i have a lot of friends who run pleroma for single user instance purposes because it's way easier than running mastodon and it's one of the few alternatives to mastodon

a lot of real shitty people use pleroma, yes

but using pleroma doesn't instantly make someone a bad faith fedi user

meta 

mastodon is a pain and a half to run, it's kinda monstrous

like i said, pleroma is one of the few alternatives that works worth a damn and it's all that some people are able to realistically run

basically please don't put "it's a pleroma instance" as part of the justification in your block recommendation

meta 

running toomanycooks.social is an exercise in me being absolutely terrified that i'm gonna break something or the servers are just gonna fold in on themselves entirely

i can entirely empathize with anyone who doesn't want to deal with that barrier to entering the fediverse if they want their own individual instance for any reason

asterisk on "any" being "unless they're using it to avoid being banned for being a shitheel" but i'd hope that goes without saying

@mdszy hey look at mastotech we catch fire every 2 months it's fine

meta 

@bclindner hey but you and ash do a very good job of getting things back to normal in very reasonable timeframes and i appreciate the hell out of you both ❤️

meta 

@bclindner @mdszy wait you run mastotech? Why didn’t I just make that my main.

meta 

@matthew @mdszy okay Ash runs it I just help unexplode the instance and swing the banhammer mostly but still

meta 

@bclindner @mdszy oh idk who Ash is.

todon.nl was just down for half an hour and I’m already thinking this was a mistake for a main lol

meta 

@mdszy that is relevant information because the technology doesn't accept user blocks and so blocking at instance level is the only serious way to start cordoning it off.

It's not a sufficient reason but it is important info
