I can't help but notice many toots from helpful newbies encouraging you to support the Mastodon Patreon.
It's fine to do that but understand it goes to just two big instances and the official Mastodon dev team.
It does NOT trickle down to YOUR instance. If you want to support your server, donate to it directly. Nearly all the costs of the explosive growth of the past few weeks is borne by local instances.
Mastodon is decentralized. There is no Mastodon Inc. This is not Twitter.
I’ll also say this gently but firmly:
Just because you don’t “get” how a federated network works or don’t see this as a “just add water” replacement for the birdsite doesn’t mean it doesn’t have merit and value in itself, including to the community who was here long before the mass influx.
Maybe take a few moments to learn and absorb before expecting it all to bend to your will.
What's it with people reporting every single person they dont like..
Please, stop with that.
This is not #Twitter. Please use features like mute or block if you don't like people but stop reporting otherwise I'll start banning people who keep reporting for nothing
I'm trying to keep things running with so many new people and it's such a waste of time to hear whatever you don't like
Otherwise go waste Elon's time, not mine
