But Musk won't mind if you call a spade a spade.

Just call him a republican.  Same thing.

I think the Exodus from Twitter is accelerating. Unfortunately the ones leaving are the sane ones, and it's concentrating and emboldening the worst. In 6 months Twitter is going to make 8 chan look tame.

If you're an advertiser, company, or any person who ever wishes to be employable again, get out.
Get out now.

But, see, if you call a Nazi a Nazi, it might make him mad and, ironically, cause him to double down and become even more of a Nazi just to trigger you. Under this approach, you greet the Nazi with love, affection, and respect, and in so doing inspire him to become less of a Nazi because he understands that the world is such a better place that way. And there's plenty of historical evidence that proves this true. Think, for example, of how the town won over the Grinch in the end. It would almost certainly have turned out very, very differently if the townspeople had met him with scorn and derision rather than singing and joy.

The reason Fark links to Twitter is because if you link to an article, then everyone whines about either paywalls or the indignity of having to turn off their ad blocker.

Deleted my Twitter account Wednesday. Been there since 2009, but never got too terribly into it beyond one or two brief stretches, so it wasn't a huge sacrifice for me or anything.

The remaining liberals there kept missing even the most obvious sarcasm, even with the eyeroll emoji, because they're just assuming every sub-comment they see in a discussion is conservative or something. One of them thought this was serious:

And then a conservative did as well, so I made a point if telling him to visit that URL.

/TFA appears to be Fark's first Mastodon link.
//I think the holdout liberals are the ones who are too invested in the site to leave.

We can accelerate that feedback loop and start classifying Nazis as not-Nazi-enough, thus giving more power to the remaining Nazis. The only downside of this plan is the last guy left becomes a Hitler Kaiju but that's a risk we have to take for science.

So when the House GOP impeaches Biden and the Senate Democrats refuse to hold the trial (they totally can by the way) will Biden and the Senate Democrats get their Twitter accounts suspended?

Sane users are to Twitter what porn was to Tumblr.

The only thing Twitter has is a respectable user base.  They can all leave if it's seen as crude abd déclassé to stay.  There have been thousands of "it" places for people to gather that are no longer.  Studio 54 and Haight-Ashbury are no longer cool things.

Yep. Don't wait for Musk to use you to sell his "Twitter 2.0" to right-wing groups & governments. The longer you stay, the more you're helping him.

DOCTORD000M: The countdown to Farkers complaining about greening mastodon links starts now.


My complaint: Why doesn't Fark have a proper tag for Mastadon, and give it the same treatment of Twitter with an "Original" post?

It might not be the ultimate solution, but it's the current successor. Musk has burned Twitter to the ground, and is now digging that ground. I say Twitter shouldn't get a fancy tag... it should be (Twitter).

If McConnel can violate the constitution by not having debate on Garland's nomination, then what's to stop them from not holding the trial?

Also, I see he's switched to telling himself that he's okay with Trump not tweeting, as opposed to posting creepy memes about it practically begging him to come back.

Mastodon is not a single entity afaik. It's distributed over nodes like a blockchain or something.

The Constitution stipulates a Senate trial after Impeachment. That's why Republicans simply voted to skip witnesses. There's no such stipulation for confirming appointments.

Also, Twitter was a single service - in theory, dozens of Mastodon servers, with different communities & widely varying viewpoints, are going to pop up. We won't get a single "Mastodon" icon, I suspect - or, worse, we will, which will be happily applied to both sane and RWNJ servers & posts.

We're back to the days of BBS forums.

Twitter had cancer before Musk took over, but it was doing alright on chemotherapy. Musk came in, cancelled the chemotherapy and started chiropractic and naturopathic treatments. It's only a matter of time now until certain death.
