poor mastodon, the latest pipedream of open source fanatics.
“one of Japan's large Mastodon servers, friends.nico, will be shut down after a month. friends.nico is the third largest server in Japan, with about 48,000 users. It was the sixth largest in the world.”

@xahlee I'm not sure that one instance going down equals the end of Mastodon. Sounds like the company that runs that instance is downsizing a bunch of projects, and disappointed that other instances grew much bigger than theirs.

@mattskala yes.
but if one look at the numbers, 48k user being 6th largest in the world, it's paltry.

you may not agree, but am pushing to kill open source fanaticism. it's no secret that mastodon is failure, consider the initial outlook by open source fans we can see here. (like the many before it.)
great if hacker types want to forever live in fringe tiny undergroundish communities like depicted in dystopian movies. Else, rise up, do, change, mainstream.

@xahlee @mattskala I absolutly agree with you Xah Lee. This is why we must reject the lies of the Open Source Movement and instead use Free Software.
