@gamingonlinux That's absolutely ridiculous! Almost seems to go against the idea of Mastodon as a whole.
That said, unless .social has disabled it, if it gets really bad, you could move your account to another Mastodon instance.

a good story from over on the twitters
I love game development, but one of the hardest things for me is asset creation. Which sucks because I have a bunch of ideas and very little skill in realizing those ideas.
None-the-less, I've been practicing a bit with #blender and am trying my hand at character sculpting... which is probably starting WAY to strong, but, that's me. Anyway, here's my first attempt!
I know... I need lots more practice!
@er1n Because it's out to mess with your sense of aesthetic consistency?
Yay me for doing my first Mastodon upgrade!
This may seem trivial, but Mastodon the first web service I run with any sort of outward facing presence, so, the fact it didn't blow up in my face is exciting!! :D
When I'm doing software development, my favorite thing to work on are games. It's always been my thing. My issue, though... Assets. I'm not so good at making assets, and I need a lot of them.
I'd probably be working on a lot more games if I didn't have to worry about assets.
Or... I'm just being lazy. Lol
@ChrisWere Other suggestions would be Arch or Gentoo. Neither of them is as "easy" as *buntu generally is, but , if they fail, you should, at the very least, be able to pinpoint what exactly is going wrong in the first place.
An #introduction ... Hi!
Just a software developer mucking about. I enjoy playing games, programming games, and trying my hand at IT related shenanigans!
My philosophy? Why do things the easy way when I can crash and burn my own way! And THAT, folks, if how I ended up starting my own Mastodon instance. HA!
If you're interested in insight and learning... no idea why you're looking my way, but, still... I suppose there could be worse places to stick your nose.

also, *real* real programmers aren't afraid to branch out and try something new if lots of people they talk to are recommending it, instead of shunning it on principle because it isn't what they use.
