By the way, I do all my pooptooting over at @firstname.lastname@example.org, in case you want to see my less-filtered and more frivolous self.
A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.
Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).
Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.
No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.
(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)
Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

Acceptance of the diversity of life does nothing for comedy but enhance your repertoire.
Acknowledgement of diversity without acceptance reduces all "jokes" to the same core of hatred, inherently limiting your comedic potential.
Once you learn to accept life's many forms and expressions, you can finally make jokes as diverse as the universe you're a part of.
mental health, not mine, "laziness"
I know two young people who were both struggling with school, always branded as "smart but lazy" by teachers and in one case by their own parents. One graduated with good grades, the other left school without graduating.
Yesterday I learned that both of them have been diagnosed with depression and one of them has severe ADHD.
Both obviously masked and compensated the hell out of it.
Laziness does not exist.
Actually adding onto that, that's what I feel the difference between fedi and twitter is
