@jasonpettus Conceptually this solves a lot of the problems I’ve had with centralized social media. I generally don’t like the idea of large parts of the internet being censored by a single party and I theoretically like that there are parts of the net that are still the Wild West.
@jasonpettus The issue is that I want to be able to control what I interact with and I usually don’t have any interest interacting with the darker parts of the net. In the case of centralized services like Twitter, I lose that control. I interact with all of it or none of it.
@jasonpettus In the case of Mastodon I can choose an instance that follows a rule set that I prefer but still engage with communities that are outside of that. It feels very Web 1.0. Individual forums and communities have their own standards but flitting between them is easy and encouraged.
@missingstring Yes, I really love that there are #Mastodon #instances out there like whitelaws, some like blacklaws, and that I as a graylaw can follow any of the individuals in these other two I want (the ones who are funny and smart, for example), without needing to be blanket-exposed to every radical crazy in both those camps.
