"Just be yourself" ≈ "Just exhibit personality traits and interests that generally don't oppose the cultural climate too much"
I'm sure quite a few aspects of my "self", if not obscured or censored well, would drive away a good number of folks. I find the ones who like to tout about "being yourself" have really narrow views of the world and humanity.

One idea I've learnt from the past few years of immersing in maths (+ some stats) is that "not giving a definite answer" can be a valid answer. Saying "I don't know" or "I can't be sure" isn't necessarily a sign of weakness, if you are confident in your lack of evidence to make a well-informed evaluation.

Found a few comments on other alternative platforms sharing concerns about #Mastodon's federated structure
A common point: the federation sees instances created for users with common interests/ideology, possibly setting precedent for even tighter echo chambers + aggressive behavior between instances over ideology clashes
