for all the shit people give Gargron, you do have to recognize that he was so moved by the abuses of proprietary social media services that instead of working for a tech company and becoming part of the problem, he did something about it.

yes. Gargron is not perfect. but, none of us are. there is no single person who is absolutely free of sin.

yes. there's a lot of things I disagree with him about, like the 300k user instance that is, and the way half of Mastodon's features are designed.

but that doesn't change the fact that he chose to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. and so, as part of my yearly review of what I'm sponsoring on Patreon I decided to give him some of those resources.

SCENE: The camera pans out, displaying Jerry, entrenched in a fort constructed of his home's furnishings, wielding a hunting rifle. Mounds of instances of Kramer, each subtly different and each dead, litter the room.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, Fediverse/Mastodon, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Fediverse plus Mastodon. Mastodon is not a social network unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Fediverse system made useful by the ActivityPub implementations, instances and vital system administrators compromising a full social network as defined by Mark Zuckerberg.

Plants are tenacious. In an environment which suits them, they refuse to give up and are tough enough to grow through asphalt to reach their goals.

A fictional authoritarian government implements Humanitarian Eugenics. Low income adults who conceive children get extra taxes that year. High income adults who raise children get a tax break every year. The intent is to have more children in safer and more plentiful environments.

@nexech While well-intentioned, the administration failed to consider n-order effects; within a few generations, their policies had strictly stratified society and created semi-permanent castes, with poor parents often choosing to give their children up for "adoption"; both to give their progeny a chance at a better life, but also for a cut of the new parents' tax break.
