On the bird site I see some people praising Parler as an alternative. Alternative to what? Definitely not centralization and the consequences of it.

@rodolpho On I saw an interesting thread on the subject of Parler. The description of it as a "conservative boomer safe space" sounds about right.

To be honest I suspect people before Gen-X don't grasp the concept of a decentralized social media platform because they don't understand the Internet or computers beyond a superficial level due to having been introduced to it late in life.

@rodolpho Heck, my parents are educated, intelligent medical doctors and I *still* have to explain how to change one's Google account name to my mother and help my father figure out things in Excel.
