@ceejbot G+ users are being scattered to the wind 😞

I posted asking if anyone is starting something similar elsewhere. We'll see what happens.

Suggestion for kind people.

Some people need to polarize groups around them, more or like adolescents do to build a personal identity by contrast with parents, but for a personal and sometime economical gain.
This is happening on the #fediverse too. Some "twitter refugees" learned the #AI craft of #market #segmentation and are trying to reproduce this shit here too, but to their own benefit.

Don't let them win.
Be kind, even if they insult you because of your race or gender.
And ask questions.
