Hey, just for the entire instance and the fediverse: Just as you don't have to suffer randos jumping into your replies to 'well, actually...' you here, I would recommend against subtooting. Instead, sharpen up your de-escalation techniques and backing away from the keyboard when you get heated.
There's no need for every disagreement over how to use the platform to be so emotionally wrought, or the backlash so disproportional as to result in an entire instance soft-calling someone out.
If you need to correct someone here on mastodon, remember the context. The atmosphere here is different, it's calmer, you don't have to deal with bad faith corporations and nazis everywhere. Be gentle, please.
Breathe. Relax. Trust each other and talk it out instead of escalating, breaking off and then grumbling and letting resentment build.
I'm writing all these words about this because I don't want the instance I feel so comfortable in, or the fediverse as a whole, to become swallowed up by the same anxious miasma that coats every other social media platform.
Things ARE different here, and they can BE different here, but that requires meeting each other halfway.
@garrcanine Hey you're really good ok? 💙
@GlitterDisaster AAAA Thank you 💚 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

@garrcanine this is a good thread, thanks
@ThreddyTheTrex I hope it can do good, even though it came from a place of frustration!
Relevant: whomst.dog CoC rule #3: Argue in good faith :)
@garrcanine I agree, no anger here.
