a quick guide to exclusive lists on dads.cool 

dads.cool supports exclusive lists. If you set a list youโ€™ve made to โ€œexclusive,โ€ posts from members of that list will appear only in that listโ€™s timeline and not in your home feed.

This feature is great for following accounts that only post about one subject, for crossposting accounts, or for pixelfed feeds.

Use the web interface to set a list as Exclusive. You can only add accounts you follow to lists.

This assumes you have to stay at 40 hours on the clock, which obviously Iโ€™d prefer not to, but given the constraints I always thought Iโ€™d do better with fewer, longer workdays
