On “hate” 

As a white, Cishet man I feel perhaps I should explain my motivation for trying to create a space free of “hate”. I don’t mean that I want this network to be free of criticism, rage or activism. I hate 45 with a passion, for instance. The difference between my hate and 45’s hate is mine is directed at the person who is stripping the rights of and stoking violence against non-white non-men.

To be clear, criticism or hatred of me, or of cishet men in general is allowed.

This is my first time running a social network, especially a federated one. It's really cool that we had a user just seem to join and then leave, and mastodon handled it seamlessly.

Speaking of people joining and then leaving, is this pretty common in the fediverse or with mastodon?

To the person who did leave, we were happy to have you and hope you come back some time! 💓
