@nixxin Am pretty concerned that no one is having a problem with the mis-characterization of what happened. The network didn’t ban, a specific instance did.

Mastodon is just software. Mastodon.social is a service provider, the most popular, but one of many.

Being tolerant of incorrect terminology made the tech world lose the hacker vs cracker debate to the media, vilifying positive acts as sinister.

@sandipb I wouldn’t be too bothered taking your own example hacker vs cracker - we cried ourselves hoarse for years. Nobody still gives a damn, well almost. I expect a knee jerk reaction with calls to ban mastodon. It will be fun when they do try 😜


@nixxin but it is wrong to suspend them merely on this basis. Many state police using SM to generate awareness and there is nothing wrong in it.
