One of the YouTubers I watch was having trouble getting their business license because they couldn't get city inspectors to complete their reports. A hater snitched them to the city for a violation so all the inspectors came by to investigate. So they got their inspections done and now they can get their business license. THE HATER ACTUALLY HELPED THEM!! Awesome.

Oh, thank you @ftl for showing me Pilled so I can easily find some crazy folks, like She reminds me of a old chronic caller to @ftl, Sunflower (or Sunshine?) from CA I think? It's been a long time, I always wondered what happen to her. Her calls could only be described as "disjointed".

If you are messing with it, also ask it to name famous people from your hometown. It provided a bunch of false information. When I asked it how one of them was connected to my hometown it told me they were not.

Talking (?) with ChatGPT. You should see its answer to, "How are assault weapons different from hunting rifles?"

With the recent explosion of new accounts in the fediverse we need blacklists that we can each subscribe to. Rather than report people like 2 year olds, we can nominate them for different blacklists. Lists like “Lefty Crybabies”, “Righty Rage’r”, “Fake Freedom Lover”, “Karens”, “Racists”, “Government Lovers”, “Scammers & Spammers”, etc.

The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement.

For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously).

"Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature.

There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content.

It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off.

Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users.

I'm trying to be welcoming to new users on FTL's Mastodon but one guy I approved yesterday has already reported three users for things he doesn't like. I've locked his account. No snitching here. Use the block feature, or find another server.

After I posted the other day I realized something ironic. The Twitterverse is moving to the Fediverse because they are worried Twitter isn’t going to censored enough. Happy

The worst part of Musk’s takeover is the . I’m seeing all kinds of people I enjoyed not seeing the likes of in my federated feed now. 🤮

I don’t always go on Reddit but are the people on /r/NewHampshire even from NH? If so, that’s a great way to make a list of people who should be kicked out. They are as non-NH-erish as you can get.

Canadians - stop trying to convince the police they are good. They've made their choice to align with evil and crush peaceful people with violence. There is not a good one among them. Good ones wouldn't be out there oppressing people, if they exist at all. Live feed:
