Don't use Mastodon Social! ............... ........ (followup)
Aside from the UI being shit and the search function being broken, and very little usability features for migrating from twitter, finding friends, etc, Mastodon suffers from a serious administration problem.
I was one of the first hundred users in the network (which now, no doubt, has tens of thousands of members). I'm actually friends with several on the development and admin team. Knowing twitter's shortcomings and being interested in decentralized microblogging since Diaspora announced itself, you can sure bet I wanted Mastodon to succeed.
Well, what's the problem then?
I'm fed up with the guy who's decided to waste all his time trying to make the services I run on this site turn into complete garbage. ("ironic" racism, "ironic" pedophilia, abusive language, spam, ban evasion, etc). There's no longer any motivation for me to continue investing my energy into maintaining these services -- a drawback of registration-free websites.
This same individual likely also tweeted a fake bomb threat from the #jp twitter bot, associated with Sageru, which had been continuing for several years in various forms with positive reception, provoking a response from U.S. federal agents yesterday.
Closing up shop, here. Fuck you, guy. If anyone can provide information on him, it would be appreciated.
If anyone would like to continue hosting / moderating any of the subsites here please let me know.
For one reason or another, my mouse buttons on my thinkpad have been acting up
So here's my workaround:
#InstallKeybdHook #UseHook On LAlt::LButton RAlt::RButton +Capslock::Capslock Capslock::Ctrl LCtrl::LAlt
What I have:
It's pretty decent.... worth investigating if you ever have the same issue.
Sakuracon 2017 was a great experience. I'm glad I was able to meet so many great friends and it was wonderful to go on a little vacation.
I'll post notes and update this post with time.
Still working on LispMark, Iyagi BBS, and a few other projects. Sorry for the lack of updates -- I've had WiFi problems and been busy otherwise.
Also working with a friend to record music for a 4x13 music label! (!!!!)
Here are my hotkeys which I've added to XFCE to make it more keyboard friendly.
