So we are trying to get away from then birdsite because of?

People get offended by other people’s choices of who they want to listen to. πŸ€” sounds far out ridiculous.

I think it's weird that anyone's block list is anyone else's business. I've blocked people because I didn't like their profile photo, or because they reminded me of the kid who hit me in the 8th grade, or because they're a family member and I wanted to keep those worlds separate. And I'm sure I've been blocked for similarly capricious reasons. Who cares? Blocking is just someone managing their inputs. It has nothing to do with you. Move on.

Due to popular demand, and the ever-increasing net to explain Mastodon to newbies as every instance is being bombarded with new users...

I've gone ahead and create a video tutorial that should help folks get to grips with all of this platform's particulars:

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
