Even more peculiar (maybe) is that I can't click on his username in my toot, even though, as I said, his username does create a dropdown when it's written @danielst@librem.one

Trying to follow @danielst@librem.one, but no luck. The search function on my instance does not find him, and using the Follow-button on his account I just get this error message.

Still, when writing his username in the tootbox here it shows up in a dropdown.

What's going on?

I learned today that The Good Place has an official podcast.

OK, fair enough, I'll give it a shot in the hopes that they don't just talk about the acting and stuff, but actually dives deeper into the philosophy and ethics.

But what really surprised me is that I also found nine unofficial TGP podcasts! Nine!

Is this a bug, or are you supposed to be able to lock your account in such a way that everyone can still see your toots, they just need to be accepted before they can follow you?

In my mind the padlock indicates that you don't want people who don't follow you to see your toots. "You can see what I post, but not follow me" doesn't make much sense to me?

Sorry, what is this?

Anyone can follow me, so why do I have a request? Does the request come from someone on a server that my server has blocked, or something?

Shocked octopus just wants to mind his own business and doesn't want any trouble, man

Just found out that the most useful tool over on birdsite, the "from:" command in the search box, does not work over here. Oh no.

I feel like this sounds like a very good idea for Mastodon to implement

I recently found out that webcomic.name has a book! Couldn't find it at the library, so I sent them an email asking if they could stock it. Yesterday I got a reply. They will buy it! Best email I've gotten in years :D

Why don't I visit webcomic.name more often? It is so wholesome and great and, as the kids would say, on point. Hypocrisy is the worst, innit?
