guess .social has a popularity chart now and i guess instead of scrapping it immediately when the response to it was hating it, gaming it, and mostly gaming it because they hate it, they're just, doing draconian moderation to it that makes no sense?

:yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

anyway if this terrible fucking "feature" makes it into the mastodon code base, we will not be implementing it, it is extremely bad and if anything there needs to be a way to move away from follower counts, because they are bad, toxic, and a dark design pattern

also my .social account is legit and i have not gamed it and i checked the box and thus, should show up on it but i don't, so wtf is that about

its bad AND im being excluded for arbitrary reasons. harumph. :colbert:

and i mean i kind of felt bad for .social as it seems like everyone in the Tumblr Paste Eating Club landed there and there's probably been a lot of cleaning up to do

SO WHY ARE WE HEAVILY MODERATING A BAD NEW FEATURE INSTEAD OF WORKING ON THAT

Enter discipleship

@anna
I give it two weeks before an enterprising individual makes home.stuck and they all leave social anyway

@Xaxifrax there's already like bunglr or some shit like that that has 7000 users already thats just like "hey its for tumblr users who like porn"

@anna
I remember reading that pornhub itself was making itself available to tumblr refugees by setting up art galleries and feed pages and whatever else, but I think it's a lot harder to tell people to follow you on pornhub

@Xaxifrax honestly they could just slap a respectable URL on there as an option and just eat that marketshare wholesale

@anna
I fear the day pornhub starts sliding down the late stage capitalism hole, cuz it's gonna happen soon and it's gonna get weird.

@Xaxifrax @anna I always said I'd never leave, too much hassle, but really if this instance supports childish shit like this, fuck that, I'm off.
