@Quinapalus A schwa-ban is part of this spot's constraint, as a way to foil bad actors (and topsy-turvy dolphins). But not all works must follow a unitary, totalistic glyphlaw! I say asking "do I ban schwa" calls for asking "why did i ban glyphs to start with, in my particular situation?" and judging on your own.
Mastodon is a "FOSS" social sharing hub. A multi-host substitution for capitalistic platforms, it avoids risking a particular company monopolizing your communication. Pick a host that you trust — you can still talk with all hosts running Mastadon. Any individual can run a Mastodon instantiation and join in this social hub in a jiffy.
