Everyone, whether you participate in 👻 🕸 🎃 pumpkin carving or not, it's now time to extend it to THE NEW 1st Annual #Mastodon tradition of 🍍PineappOlantern Carving! These are some I made last October in the spirit of @Gargron's https://joinMastodon.org for inspiration. You have 15 days to practice your carving skillz (& Pina Colada drinking 😋🍹) for a 27th-31st reveal. Don't forget to # it: #Art #MastoArt #Mastodon & 🍍#PineappOlantern 🎃 & be careful w that 🔪
I think a lot of us on #Mastodon watched the #G20 'riots' in Hamburg #Germany in the past days with amazement – it has been a few years since a large scale Anti-Capitalism Left wing protest resulted in massive and organised battles with the police.
Most Left discussions about this kind of political violence result in predictable circular debates about 'Gandhians' vs 'Red Army Faction', or whatever.
Is it correct to always point to the greater state violence (wars) when explaining away political street violence like at the #G20? Is he explaining the protest or evading answering about it?

What Mastodon Is (graphic nonsense) Show additional
#Mastodon isn't so much a "microblogging site" as a "giant middle finger to Twitter that also generates MastoDonscourse (TM) and requires microblogging to achieve the primary aim"
also it's the still-beating heart of your enemy, held in your hands before their eyes, as it beats its last and their spark goes out
oh yeah and it's also grindr/IRC but for people who aren't nazi shitbags
that's p much it
(except also it's cookies and stroganoff)
[EN] A few of us would like to create an autistic-friendly instance on #Mastodon but don't have the technical knowledge to do so. Can anyone help us? Thank you.
Observation: #Mastodon admin culture is toxic as fuck.
I saw one admin say they're shutting down a tiny instance last night. Because they don't want to deal with the bullshit from a select few other admins.
Others are soul searching about whether Mastodon is something they want to spend time and energy and money on given the stress load of the toxic admin politics. It's harder for them to walk out because they have 100s or 1000s of users. They still might.
Something to think on.
You know I am Brazilian, but it is peculiar when I join websites from Spanish speaking countries and they send me to their English versions. Without asking. Why?
