advice to tech writers writing about mastodon or the fediverse at large: don't over-exaggerate, don't claim mastodon is nazi-free etc.. instead link to this: and summarize/paraphrase @maloki 's points while doing so.


Making claims detached from reality leads to quick disillusionment. Being honest might not have the same immediate appeal, but its appeal is sustainable, and the people who you recruit will be well-grounded in reality instead of fanatics and cynics.

@kittybecca Unfortunately, it seems people want to be fanatics and cynics. I'm doing my best to break them.
