F9or those who havent seen it yet this is the article that everyone is yelling at each other over across the #fediverse
@arinbasu @freemo The reason this matters is that the joinmastodon list is not itself federated, but it is what people encounter when they wish to join.
I would not have found it if I had joined a few days later.
And I wouldn’t have been happy with any of the choices I was presented with. That’s not good for the #fediverse, and it’s not good for people fleeing Twitter. Often #qoto is exactly the right place for them.
@arinbasu @freemo My promoting #qoto on Twitter is one way to bypass the gatekeeping, and I encourage others to do so as well.
An alternate curated list would also be possible, but a lot of work, and you’d have to find a way to get it front of people who just know “mastodon” and type it into their search bar.

Hate speech and harassment strictly forbidden.
Its not all on him, a lot of blame lies in many of the leaders of the community who run large admins who are acting irresponsibly.
