inaction enabling genocide Show more

The weird conflict of worrying that it feels like the instance may go away,
while also considering just giving up on the general inactivism at Mastodon/GNUsocial altogether and deleting the account,
which would make the first worry pointless...
Yeah, Mastodon's web-UI describes that feeling well:

So, yeah, as things stand right now,
I'm done with all disactive "social media" as of now and indefinitely.

My main purpose for over a decade was to share important news that others and I had found,
but as that has here and recently before elsewhere devolved into me mumbling myself to a heart attack while struggling though increasing blindness to find unreported emergencies,
it's not fucking worth it.
t's not what it was and it's now pointless.

Go ahead requipping/boosting/whatevering your mutual group-feelgoodiness and cat-pics,
while we all burn together.
Especially you that only appear to demand CW-tags, but ignore everything that is CW-tagged. You're literally worse than twitter-trolls.
No, it's fine. It's fine. It's f…

@b9AcE "asking for CW tags on distressing media is trolling" dude this is a bad take.

@b9AcE @Pyretta I don't think the meaning was that CW is trolling:

If I understood it correctly it means that asking for disturbing content to be CW'd but then not paying attention to any content that was CW'd will defang said content to the point of making it pointless to use CW in the first place, if your intention was to raise awareness about the thing you were posting about.

@polychrome Well yes, as you probably noticed, the sentence "quoted" back at me was not actually mine, because I would not have said since it wasn't and isn't my opinion.
Indeed, my intent was more like what you describe, people that only pop in to demand others CW-tag (where the poster have a different opinion) but without any other interaction ever, on the CW-tagged posts as well.
Also, there is a difference between "demanding" as I intentionally used and "asking for", asking for any kind of change is fine really, while demanding others post to your desires on their own accounts without @-mentions to you... is extremely rarely OK.
So yes, what you said. ;-)

@b9AcE @polychrome You are just another white guy activist troll, people do not have the emotional energy to have politics shoved in their face 24/7 by people like you when they have their own struggles already, like queer folks and disabled folks and people of colour and jewish folks. Please respect people who ask for content warnings because they have a reason for asking and stop treating them like trolls for wanting to preserve their own sanity.

@Pyretta Again, none of that was what I said, because it was not and is not my opinion.
Clearly this conversation has devolved into your just flinging abuse at me for having an onion that I did not force you to read and further exchange is not in any way constructive,
so it is now over.

Your abuse also ruined what until then was seeming like a reasonable day, which is rare with my condition.

@b9AcE @polychrome The reason people ask for content warnings on your political posts is because they don't want them shoved in their faces. But you're just another dude who thinks it's SUPER IMPORTANT you shove your shit in everyone's face whether or not they like it, and that's why you refuse to use content warnings, I get it. Fuck off and die.
