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.

And whatever you think of FB or Harvard, it most certainly isn't any more. Which is a thought you might want to keep in mind. Because change.


So: On behalf of myself, I'd like to welcome everyone on Mastodon, OSocial, and the Fediverse to your (newly realised|long accustomed) minority status.

Get used to it.

Get used to the fact that others are, perhaps, getting used to it. Some for the first time.

Some, with more than a little resignation, not.

But realise that, unless you want to want to use some very broad classifications, there are few actual /majorities/ on Mastodon.

If you're right-handed, dark-haired, probably.
