Stop and think for a moment.
This place isn't owned by a corporation.
We are all hanging out in a place free of corporate bs, invasive advertising and toxic unwillingness to tackle moderation in a mature way.
Your feed is chronological, there is no engagement manipulation of post visibility.
Yet that isn't exactly why you opened up mastodon/pleroma right this minute is it?
You are checking up on the fediverse because it is a chill place to be and also all those things.
How cool is that?
