I honestly don't care if anyone "doesn't have hope" for Mastodon.
Because federated/independant open-source services will continue to exist out in the wild forever regardless of what you think of them. Even if eventually they're only populated by incredibly old enthusiasts from the previous generation and nobody new "gets" it anymore.
People still host Quake servers, chat on IRC, and watch Star Wars in ascii over telnet.
@rekle Surface hazing is normal on old plastic screen protectors. The need replacing every once in a while.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
