PSA: This is the public Internet. This feed is by design meant for sharing information and allowing engagement.
If you don't want engagement or unwanted attention, be it positive, confused (as I often am) or even malicious, use the privacy tools you have available to vent, rant and get your feelings out.
Your trusty followers will then not be able to boost you.
It's unreasonable to expect thousands of humans to behave exactly as you want them to every time you capture their attention.
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!
