@maiyannah Your very post, throwing all Mastodon users in the bad pot, is exemplary of what constitutes blind Twitter hate. I've seen negative posts from all parts of the Fediverse so far, and you just added another unnecessary accusation. If you went for irony, you hit the bull's eye. :)
@katiekats @maiyannah That wasn't a "witty comeback". Your argument is fundamentally flawed, and adding a story of how everyone you know nearly died because of mean Mastodon is just adding more fallacious non-arguments. My point was and still is that there is no "the Masto crowd", as the OP put it, and that this othering and throwing all inviduals, humans, using a certain software in a sack and then hitting it with a stick, is the exact problem with hateful rethoric on Twitter.
@maiyannah @katiekats By the way, I have seen accusations about Mastodon devs not caring about federation issues oftentimes in my feed in the past. They were literally *never* accompanied by a link to the discussion in question. If you throw around accusations, please at least back them up. To me, that's basic netiquette for someone who wants to argue honestly and sincerely. But more importantly, it will enable Masto users/admins who deeply care about compat to join the conversation. Thank you!!
