Mastodon Hot Take
Federated directories are a good feature, and go a long way towards solving the discovery problem that has long plagued federated social networks.

It sounds like Gargron might have had some blind spots in developing this for Mastodon, but I'm not sure the backlash is entirely warranted. There are probably some implementation details that need fixing, like sorting, or hiding directory results of people who are blocking your instance.

I saw someone earlier say that he's trying to make Mastodon more like corporate social networks to appeal to new users and replicate some of the not-so-nice things that social media entails. This could be true when we talk about trending, but it's false when discussing opt-in user directories.

After about a decade in this space, I can safely say that this kind of feature actually would solve a long-held problem in the space that really does make it hard for new people to find each other. It's probably one of the only ways to actually solve it. We just have to make sure it doesn't suck.

on accusations dismissed as kiwifarms campaigns

Now people can use "Oh it's KF trying to ruin my life" as a dodge to accountability. And it gives an out to current abusive and toxic behavior because "people are spreading lies about me". It's manipulative and it's very hard to fight and it makes me sick every time this comes up.

end up traced back to the harassment sites and instantly dismissed. e.g. rape allegations from online communities discussed on twitter years ago? there may be fragments left, but not nearly enough to piece together without having to turn to archives from some of the worst people on the internet. and it's terrible, and this is one reason why communities need to be more willing to unequivocally take out their trash.

kf, ed, and their ilk are populated by horrible people and literally none of their victims (even the ones who are themselves horrible) deserve their treatment. but beyond the harassment, stalking, and lies, another danger is tainting truth by association. they have a vested interest in collecting any dirt on their victims, of course anything that's true is going to be a goldmine for them. As evidence is lost to dead accounts the only extant copies…

a thought about writing scholars (tangent from Harry Potter discussion, glancing allusion to injury, 182 words)

So there was a Tumblr post a while ago musing on the fact that Charlie Weasley was able to get together a group to smuggle a dragon across international borders on two days notice - packbat.tumblr.com/post/147254 - and one of the responses was from a biologist who said: "speaking as a biologist, i can guarantee i would show up without question to smuggle an endangered species that would otherwise be destroyed across national borders to a sanctuary on two days’ notice."

...and I think that's something that a lot of writers who aren't scientists, archaeologists, zoologists, et cetera might not think about? Society writes an implicit list of Things You Are Allowed To Care A Whole Lot About, and while I suspect *everyone* has items they drop or add to that list, if you are writing a scholar with a particular field of study? Something irreplaceable in their field may well have a value to them on par with their own limbs.

And I think writers miss that sometimes. So it occurs to me to mention.

As with previous tech advances in Cuba, only those who can afford it will be able to take advantage of a new 3G network — which remains under the control of the autocratic government.

Tumblr decided that these two fully clothed men was adult content but not a drawing of a butt ass naked lady that I even called the staff out on.

On other terms have some clotheswap! Adam & Jeff! #mastoart #DigitalArt #lgbtart #DeadbyDaylight

🚨 PSA FOR NEW USERS 🚨 CW: abuse, rapist, drama, here we go again

Several new Tumblr refugees have landed on her instance, starrevolution. They can't see this, but, I'm hoping to somehow help someone not stumble into a really bad situation. She will tell you that I am an abuser for letting you know this public information, or a nazi, or whatever else.

Please do not respond to the inevitable subtoots. Please do not try to start a discourse. Just, be aware, and stay safe. Thanks y'all.

I really don't want to deal with the fallout this post may create, but I feel an obligation to prevent new folks from being victimized.

Laurelai Bailey is a serial rapist. She has drugged girls, she has raped girls, there are horribly graphic victim testimony's easily found through a simple google search. She is a master manipulator and gaslighter, and has managed to manipulate several communities into the ground.
