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.
Mastodon was no longer mostly French and German, some English, and a smattering of other languages.
It was, as I commented the first time, Turning Japanese. And is now a Plurality.
It's interesting not only being a minority /language/ as a principally English speaker, but a minority /alphabet/, on an online system. And it's an interesting problem to have.
There are also several larger populations out there, not yet connected.
