@me this one sure hits different without the poll

I maintain that a big chunk of harm caused in interpersonal relationships is downstream of people not wanting to feel the sting of morality dysphoria that comes from explicitly hurting someone, even in a very small way.

@tess why don't you have actionable ambitions? do you have any goals/desires to work towards?
seems weird

@pee_zombie probably not

i've spent maybe 4 hours on mastodon in my life, these are very much first impressions

@pee_zombie yes, and i also notice that whenever i've used or played with mastodon, i've never seen uhh RTs or whatever from non-mastodon servers

maybe that's just because the userbase is smaller? but there's a difference between mere protocol compatibility and actual functional integration of data/content posted on different platforms

@Rrrrrrr oh no they've made it clear that not implementing QTs was a deliberate feature

@pee_zombie the forking also seems like potentially a problem? like, i think it's good that instances can do things differently and still talk to each other, but i strongly suspect that it's gonna cause issues when they're using different sets of features, different design, different assumptions for how things work

@Rrrrrrr i mean yes, you can do it if you really want to, but the UI support is zero

when really it should be frictionless for me to use it the way i want to

which is fine i guess, the devs aren't obligated to build a perfect copy

but it seems quite clear to me that their vision for what they want to build is not at all aligned with what i like about twitter or what i want to use it for

Show thread

so it would seem that mastodon doesn't really have UI for threads, doesn't support QTs, and doesn't support search of posts except for hashtags

for being ostensibly a clone or replacement to twitter, it doesn't actually have the features needed to support the way i use twitter

@lisatomic is urbit ever going to be ready for mass adoption

feels like vaporware

@lisatomic lack of ui for threads is very frustrating

as is lack of QTs, functional search...

@tess oh my lord this is frustrating to read

and apparently we can't search posts except for hashtags either?

@niplav I meant, is there a way to stop RTs from a specific account from showing up in my feed
