#Retired. I do what I want. This currently includes:
so when did Mastodon turn off the ability for an individual to *block* an instance? (vs. just hiding it)
Damn. If I'd known I was about to hit 1K toots, I'd have tooted much more profoundly!
did my instance unfederate or go offline overnight? timeline has big gap from 8 hours ago to 24 minutes ago. I follow 87 folks, normally not that quiet...
I really don't know what I was thinking. #Pleroma install on my Raspberry Pi kicking my ass. *AGAIN* - every damned time. seems like both tcp and tcp6 are trying to listen to ports? Same port? Half a day later, 30 attempts at a fix later, still not working *FUCKING HELL*
status: prepping my Pi for Pleroma reinstall *headdesk*
someone I follow just mentioned the Red Pill docu and gave it some credibility. I did a couple of Googles and some reading and..........nope nope nope. Unfollow. Block. *sigh*
OR NOT - dammit. Had to use router as DHCP for the Pi, then use Pi-hole as the DHCP for the rest of the devices, but the result was that one and *only* one of my web sites (sub-domain of another site) was completely inaccessible. I gave it a few hours of troubleshooting, then just turned off the pi-hole dhcp and re-enabled full dhcp on the router. Odd, to be sure, but well fuck. Now I have to set all devices to use pi for dns? *sigh*

Installed pi-hole again - realized my new apartment has a router that doesn't allow you to change the DNS - thought I was sunk, but - no - all good! https://discourse.pi-hole.net/t/how-do-i-use-pi-holes-built-in-dhcp-server-and-why-would-i-want-to/3026
Mastodon anxiety: FOBOWI
(Fear Of Being On the Wrong Instance)

I unmuted everyone I ever muted before. Makes it easier to block them when they come back around spouting idiocy.
It seems to me recent controversy was about whether an instance must block its user because of the pressures of other instances blocking them based on a history where that user used a blocklist intended to block toxic people who amongst other things were against blocking, but some of the wrong people were blocked on that blocklist.
