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.

Being /good/ makes you good.

Oh, and not just that one time.

Every. Fucking. Day.

Or at least most of them.

A similar thing about being right: you've actually got to, you know /be right/ about something. That is, your world-model has to check out when compared against the actual world. And continue to check out, including as new, potentially improved models, come along. Though those /also/ have to pass the test, and not just be wrapped in flashy marketing. But that's another essay.
