“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).

Intro

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 Tom, who is the admin 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.

Quite recently I wrote a nice Blog page, describing not only How, but Why I have been searching for better instances. I am very happy with 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.

I have been thinking about a new and better Instance.

And a small snapshot of my busy Tabs list in #Waterfox browser shows that I really was looking for some good GlitchSocial instances.

Found a nice one, here. Muensterland.social came up in my search, from one of those tabs in the header banner.

Thank you, 🐘nipos@muensterland.social ! 😺

Have been thinking about new and better Instance. [Part 2]

This morning, I wrote this Toot at a new instance, which I found and registered at late last night.

And picture of my busy Tabs list in #Waterfox browser showed that I really was looking for some good GlitchSocial instances.

Found a nice one, here. Muensterland.social came up in my search, from one of those tabs in the header banner.

Thank you, 🐘nipos@muensterland.social ! 😺
