Mastodon is nice because even if you're just some random nobody on here, you're still given an equal and fair spot on the public timelines that everyone sees.

There's no weird, biased algorithm determining whether you deserve to meet new people or should just stay lonely forever because the algorithm says so.

@bryan tfw no algorithm to blame your loneliness on

woah hey everyone :blobeyes:
follow me on mast of done :0

@bryan @Skoll3 yes but it's called fediverse, there's more than mastodon software and more than mastodon instances
>you're still given an equal and fair spot on the public timelines
Blocklists.
>There's no weird, biased algorithm determining whether you deserve to meet new people or should just stay lonely forever
Unfair/biased blocklists.
@mangeurdenuage @bryan even better:
>non-disclosed blocklists at admin's discretion that users have no way of knowing exist
hi mastodon.social
@roka @mangeurdenuage @bryan Why is it so hard to disclose this anyways?
@sim @mangeurdenuage @bryan unless I remember it incorrectly, the stated reason for masadong.social policy of non-disclosure was 'harassment'. I don't really get it. wwww
@roka @mangeurdenuage @bryan To be honest, I don't get it either. Are they really harassed over it?
@sim @mangeurdenuage @bryan it all depends on how you define harrassment :^)
@roka @mangeurdenuage @bryan Oh! Have you been harassing them, roka? Naughty, naughty! ;)
@roka @sim
If you do something that can be considered negative you can't get questioned if people don't know about it.

@bryan instead you stay lonely forever because you aren't already famous and nobody cares what you have to say (unless you are already famous.)

@bryan Not an opaque one that's run on digital computers, at least.

@bryan Just like it used to be in the old days of the Internet :')

@bryan matriarchy vs patriarchy--all children of the earth are legitimate

@bryan I find being noticed a little odd and startling but it’s cool

@bryan I feel like this also contributes to more people wanting to reach out and make more friends - feeling equal.
