It has come to my attention that Mastodon, and/or OSocial, and/or the Fediverse, are no longer what they once were. They're being flooded by Normals. Or People who Don't Speak my Language. または私のアルファベットを使用しない人。

It's becoming like ... birdland.

Or worse: Facebook.

So, here's a thought for you: Facebook was once literally Harvard.

There are roughly 1 billion Muslims in the world. Another billion each in China and India. A billion in Africa. /Another/ two billion through the rest of Asia /not/ included in China and India. A half billion in South and Central American and the Caribbean.

And the roughly 1 billion of the US, Europe, Canada, Australia. Oh, hello, New Zealand, you're so tiny and cute I could just *pinch* you!

"Normal" itself is a minority, if you mean US, Canada, UK, EU, AU, NZ.
