foss project: don't bully nazis

me: 🚮

no one gives a shit if nazis have feelings because they're nazis. it's really not that complicated.

nazis want their feelings to matter? stop being genocidal and oppressive assholes then. 🤷🏽

Show thread

they don't need defense. no one is born a nazi. no one is accidentally a nazi. it's not a mistake or something that just happens. you don't need to defend their free speech because they CHOOSE to advocate and stand for genocide. that's not worthy of protection and they don't have to use your platform.

standing up to genocidal people shouldn't be a punishable offense if you care about basic human decency.

you know what happens when you bully and persecute nazis?

they get scared to be nazis. they get scared to say their nazi shit aloud. and it makes it harder for their nazi shit to spread.

persecuting and bullying them is good. 🤷🏽

@guerrillarain my problem is that you also get used to bullying and persecuting. But I think what we're talking about here isn't bullying, it's just not being inviting. It's saying "the grownups are talking, could you please do your fascisming outside?"
Gah. Keeping ones language anywhere near the truth is tiring.

What sets mastodon.host appart?

As a general instance, we are not centered on a specific theme, or a specific language. Everyone is welcome as long as they follow the few rules we have.

We always run the latest stable version of Mastodon, providing you a stock experience, with the following modifications:

  • 2048 character limit (not 500).
  • 512 character limits for the account's bio (not 160).
  • full column width (not fixed size).
  • more search results (20 instead of 5 per type of search).
  • Audio upload (not limited to videos only).
  • full text search of statuses (not restricted to searching tags and users).
  • trending tags are displayed on the main UI ( and a more complete view is available here)
  • boosts and replies are shown in the timelines (more complete view for everyone).
  • Your mastodon.host account is also a XMPP account (Federated Instant Messaging, take a look online to find a client and use your mastodon.host username and password to configure it, you can also use our online web client). Woohoo! two services in one!
  • We also have a very good view of the federation (our federated timeline gives you a more broad view of the Mastodon network than a 'normal' instance, there's a lot to read in a lot of languages).
  • We also host a Peertube instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • In the same vein, we host a Funkwhale instance for the convenience. Try it and let us know what you think !
  • If you want to be on a more quiet, moderated instance, or use another AP implementation, we host a Pleroma instance for the convenience. This is the same fediverse as with Mastodon, but with a different default UI and way more optimized backend. Try and see which one you prefer !
  • Now if you want a different UI, the stock mastodon one does not please you, you can check Pinafore.
  • We do also host for the convenience a video Conference server ( Jitsi Meet )
  • We have a mastodon relay for other instances to bootstrap their timelines: https://relay.mastodon.host

Although we are a medium+ sized instance, we'd like to keep the feeling that you are at home and safe here.
