I would just like to take a moment and remind you that the people running your Mastodon instance are normal dorks like yourself, who are probably doing it as a side project.
If you want something from us, it's not a good idea for your first contact about it to be dripping with bitterness and sarcasm. Please be chill with your admin. Thanks. 💓
