“Take your information and do what you want with it.”
That suggestive text sounds like Freedom of movement is granted and important, doesn't it? That is directly copied
from Documents at JoinMastodon.org.
The truth is less rosy though. There are easy and reliable ways to :
Export the list of people you Follow.
Export lists of people you Mute (hiding their posts from your view)
Export lists of people and instances you Blocked (barring their content reaching you). Read more...

To love is sometimes to let go, respect someone's need to be out and observe, marvel at so much the world has to offer. Sometimes people have a hard time accepting that, while part of a community, or in a closer relationship with someone, all humans have curiosity and it's rich to see and let it blossom.
I offer this post to my friend Coralie, we met very recently, and yet she has such a sensibility, that it saw deeply into my heart and soul.
Yesterday she surprised me, messaging privately and offering a comment that delighted me — that she could perceive my inner nature so clearly.

Pleroma, have you met ?
I have a lot of curiosity for the different places and software we encounter on the Fediverse, if we are open minded and like to travel and see places.
I love Travel in the physical world, and similarly, am enchanted by travel in cyberspace, through the many corners and alleys, express lanes and boulevards, parks, of the Fediverse.
There are some ugly areas, which I carefully investigated, months ago; a quick look from the shadows, incognito, and it was clear it wasn't a good place, so I left never to return.
Now some of those corners are changing, still there but moved to new communication protocols — we don't see their posts anymore.
Mastodon is not all there is, not even close. It is the largest part of the Fediverse, in terms of instances (servers) and registered users.
But there's more and that is a good thing.

Introducing a new and Friendly Instance :
I have been speaking with
, who is the admin Tom at Kafuka.me, an interesting new instance.
Tom is running my current Favourite instance software — the
Glitch-Social variant, an Elite and Avant-garde, enhanced Mastodon.
I wrote , describing not only a nice Blog page How, but Why I have been . I am very happy with searching for better instances my new account at . Muensterland.social
Similarly to Munsterland.social, Kafuka.me is Small and a Labour of Love – with all the good that a dedicated administrator can bring into a focused effort project.
