I wonder who patient zero is for today's barrage of harassers and abuse. It's always such a fun mystery.

@wilw Dude I'm sorry man. If its anyone from my server let me know.

I still say your a pretty good dude so your ok in my book for whatever that is worth.

@freemo @wilw  i know a good way to avoid harassers don't use your real name just a suggestion.

@ben666 While I'm sure that would be effective, I'm not sure I'd want to have to live a life where I had to hide who I was all the time just so I didnt get harassed.

Then what if the news gets out it is you? You have to move to a new account and start making friends all over again?

I dunno I'm not sure that would be any better for him honestly.

@wilw

@freemo @wilw if you use it well nobody will ever know like i could be anybody im nothing and i think it will be the only way to avoid it. i guess it just deepens on how badly you want to avoid it.
@ben666 @freemo I'm probably going to sound like a jerk for saying this, but if you have a "personal brand", then going anonymous isn't going to suit your plans for social media.
@moonman @freemo that is true being well known has its bad sides. so it would depend on your plans for social media

@ben666
So someone is being an arsehole and you glorious advice is to hide?
Mastodon is my source of positivity but you can't be serious.
@wilw @freemo

@commandelicious @wilw @freemo  its just following logic its simple. source of positivity you cant always get what you want.

@ben666 @wilw @freemo
No it's not logic and it's not simple.
Saying "it's prooven that ..." isn't a proof.
I am going to mute your instance now, have fun on mastodon but be a less shit person please, even though I doubt a shitposter ever can be a good one. Bye.

@commandelicious @wilw @freemo first its not proof its logic its not the same thing. i can only say that is very disapointing already talking about muting . and how is saying that being anonymous will get you less harrasment  being a shit person. oh and freemo see what i mean?
@freemo @wilw @commandelicious well see the instance im on and then see that it is used as an https://shitposter.club/attachment/1248822 excuse to say i was shitposting and it should be muted while i was very nice and did not shitpost while i could have and he was not so nice.

@ben666
If someone wants to personally mute you or your instance that is their right. Even if they just find someone uninteresting and want to mute them I dont see the problem

No one is obligated to listen to you.

@freemo i dint mean that i mean using the excuse of shitposting that im a shit person  while i was being nice that is what i mean using excuses for just not liking what someone said and even using the name of the instance as an excuse because thats why i must be shitposting all the time.when i was clearly not. because saying i will block you because i dont like what you said does not sound good or make you look good that is what i mean.
@commandelicious @ben666 @wilw @freemo It's more like not being so attached to having an AFK identity online presence. Honestly it's mostly a liability. I've lost track of how many identities I have online.
@moonman @wilw @freemo @commandelicious me to i have different identity's to on mastodon i just have a few with the same name but on different instances i keep them all with a password manager.
