I do not like using proprietary corporations networks for reasons that you all imagine.
but also I do not like to use the #federation
for obvious reasons of lack of respect towards people and their ideas and customs. there are a lot of idiots who write/post shit without worrying about using the nsf-w tag for example, there are really a lot of strange people, especially in diaspora, that always, at some point, start offending others without a real reason ....
and, moreover, often these strange people are your contacts (connections as we use to say), therefore, it is useless not to have certain contacts or block them (and this is a problem: I should eliminate all or almost my contacts since they have certain contacts ?!
community, I think because it is still a small community, is perhaps the only one in which I find myself without problem (but excluding that problem mentioned above).
What do you suggest? I should perhaps give up definitively to do/use "social network" thing?
Also I notice that different people in these networks, not having their real friends or family using these things/software, they are tempted to enrich their lists of "friends" connections, so they are willing also to accept things that, logically, do not should accept (this being said in a general way, then there are clearly particular cases), but, in short, the tendency is to accept almost everyone because we need to have our list to socialize.
For example:" I accept Karine (random name) because I, male, need to have women on my list, and also Karine is beautiful (OMG), and therefore, despite her sometimes post shit, and despite her sometimes offends, and so heavy , the others, I do not want to renounce her"
in short, as if Karine were an old friend of ours LOL
A situation then, perhaps, all this, today, that is normal, even in social networks, but, definitely, I find it difficult to continue instead in this direction of "but we accept almost all, even the Nazis and psychopaths, we need to socialize, quite right?".
What I notice in these free networks is that, since there are no filters, censorship, everyone feels free to write any kind of shit, and especially in certain networks as a diaspora (probably today also and especially in mastodon) many people come to us especially for that reason, and not for any ideology, as a foss ideology for ex., these people often have profiles in facebook and twitter, but here, in the free networks, they are free to write a lot of shit...and the community does not always get to fix things.
So I find myself tired again, and I do not know if my patience has some reserves in the warehouse of patience
. I could definitely disappear or create a ridiculous new profile with just 5 friends, just to say... I am and I continue to be an "abnormal". I'm "fucked" .
