The clear statements made by @Gargron as administrator of mastodon.social about why certain choices happen there are good. I may or may not agree with every single one but I am confident that administration of that instances is thoughtful, transparent, and not overwhelmed.
It's a big ol' instance and the flagship of Mastodon-the-software in many ways, so I recognize that it will probably always be home to more drama than a quiet backwater instance, but there seems to be good faith effort.
