Public posts may be discoverable and accessible by visiting someone’s profile, but this qoto feature (and the mastodon pull request that does the same thing) posits that users are entitled to view someone’s public posts at the moment they’re posted. That’s wrong. Denying a follow request, but not blocking someone, means you do not consent to giving them instantaneous and convenient access to reply to or engage with your posts. Just because they’re public doesn’t mean they’re for you.
Gonna block qoto.org on this instance later this morning when I’m at my desk.
Their forked version of mastodon implements a feature that allows accounts on their instance to follow locked accounts—even if you reject a follow request from a qoto user, they can see all your public-level posts on their home timeline.
This is a breach of trust to users of other instances and provides a vector for stalking and harassment, as users may not know who is following them.
can this compost thermometer fucking chill out
does anyone have recommendations for kitchen compost bins? has to be easy to take out to the yard for emptying into the big guy
update: we have ordered the big composter, SPRING IS COMING
I will say I was extremely into the way the monsters’ dialogue was this mishmash of the way little boys talk and the way they think adults talk, I think the Dave Eggers script really delivers
common sense media says it’s appropriate for ages 9 and up but I honestly think it’s more for parents than kids
watched spike jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are on Friday night for the first time; I get why it was so polarizing. It is so good at summoning the inner word of an angry little boy (especially in dialogue) but as a parent (oh boy it feels weird saying that) I understood that it was too scary, too frenetic, too *wild* to really be a success
it took an hour but it went ok!!! internet!!!!!
If I added an FAQ to https://dads.cool/about/more, what should it include?
@darius is there an eta on 3.1 support for hometown? (I know it's a passion project, no rush)
a quick guide to exclusive lists on dads.cool
dads.cool supports exclusive lists. If you set a list you’ve made to “exclusive,” posts from members of that list will appear only in that list’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.
The short answers are, btw, “while mastodon is a great foundation, the creators of the project are most interested in open- and cross-compatible groups, and have nixed some of the features I care about most in a small community where people are talking about their families.” And “this space is partially for stoking conversation about the meaning of fatherhood, culturally and practically, distinct from gender. I want that conversation to be front and center. What makes /you/ feel like a dad?”
Thinking about adding an FAQ to dads.cool’s about page, including the obvious “Why not regular mastodon?” and “why dads and just not parents?” #dadmin
