Your post prompted me to install fedilab and make an account. It's taking some getting used to(my first account got banned), but it seems awesome! Thanks for the post.
@demosthenes Your first account wasnt banned here I hope? Many instances are very quick to ban for nonsense. QOTO tends to be pretty relaxed and we very rarely need to ban here except for clear spam accounts mostly.
Glad to have you on board, getting used to the decentralized nature and how that changes thing is something to get used to but it really isnt too complicated once you spend some time here.
It is great to have you on board, I am the founder of this server and we have a few mods volunteering. Reach out if you need anything at all.
Well its not "culture" really its specific to the server and their rules.. If you were banned for engaging with a troll on mstdn.social then perhaps you should move to another server that isnt going to be so quick to ban for reasons you consider inappropriate.
For example if you had an account on QOTO we would never ban someone for engaging with a troll, and the same is true for many other servers.
