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 I also feel i see too little signs of activism.

People may have their own struggles for survival like @Pyretta says, but climate change particular probably _is_ a struggle for survival for them aswel, just a longer term one..

Similarly hear people say it is impractical for people to make more personal contacts.. It is hard to estimate personal situations, think in reality many of these people can infact make more contacts.. Including myself..

@jasper Again, the behavior I objected to was very specifically to "demand" CW-tags, not "ask" or even "request".

I have never objected to requesting/asking for any modifications and have even explicitly made several calls for people to please point out when they feel CW-tagging was appropriate where I hadn't used them... but that is NOT the same as d̲e̲m̲a̲n̲d̲i̲n̲g̲ people make every post entirely according to someone else's dictates.

I wrote the contested sentence very specifically to mean exactly what I intended and nothing else, so to then assign me an entirely different opinion to what I wrote and even as a false quote, which I would never have written... even after the discrepancy was pointed out, that is just unacceptable behavior, in any context by anyone.

@jasper Then of course I would personally think it also unacceptable to assign others a (in this case incorrect) sexuality without any knowledge of what it actually is, to then use that fabulation as basis for several subtoots smearing a person... but that is something others may find to be just fine.
I decided to just block everyone that took part in that behavior without objecting and therefore apparently thought it fine,
because such behavior is in my opinion seriously toxic and I have had... well, let's say when I started telling a doctor about abuse in my early life, the doctor started crying.
I don't need such abusive people in my life.

I totally agree with everything you said, and I also agree that we are not caring enough about the only world we have.
Don't get pissed off by trolls, just block them and move one.
Whoever demands instead of asking can go straight into the Blocklist ;)
(and thanks for all your good work 💜)

@ciaby Thanks for all of that! <3

I nevertheless feel like I need to have a break, but it's possible that I return.
When doing something becomes a constant source of ire, it's best to stop, whether permanently or temporarily...
The probability of my return is involuntarily increased by my simply not having anything else to do where I now live hundreds of kilometers from everything I used to do offline and all my friends. ;-/
