Criticism is welcome, but remember to give constructive criticism, which includes consideration of how your criticism will affect the other person emotionally. The golden rule applies: how would you feel if you read the message was directed at you? It's hard for someone to constructively make use of criticism if receiving it is an emotional drain.

PSA: don't forget, your instance moderators need you to help by reporting anything that you think might violate the rules!

Reporting something doesn't automatically penalize anyone, so *you* don't need to worry about whether something is really actionable.

That's *our* job as moderators! All *you* need to do is help make sure we don't miss things by reporting them.

Shop, where are you buying DRM-free e-books? I'd like to purchase Stephenson's "The System of the World", but it's defected on Amazon and Cobo, and without any specifications on B&n and Any suggestions?

"There's a unicorn among our sheep," the shepherd reported to her father upon returning to the farmhouse.

"What's it doing there?" he asked, puzzled.

"I asked, it didn't answer."

"And I wouldn't press," warned her grandmother. Everyone agreed.

The next dawn, as the shepherd lead the flock out, she noted there were now two unicorns - one considerably smaller than the other.

For generations after, the wool from that farm was exceptional.

Aha.... So the magic behind #Mastodons #federation is #ActivityPub... Now what I can't get my head around is this: What exactly is it?

Like, is it a standard? An idea? Or a library of some sort? To me it looks like something you implement yourself within your own code and make it work that way.

Perhaps I'm wrong, I dunno. Just ifnd it weird that theres no libraries out there!
