100 Mastodon myths:
1. Mastodon is hard.
FALSE. It’s a "soft"ware. Not hardware.
2. You have to use Linux to post on Mastodon.
FALSE. FreeBSD and OpenBSD are also supported.
3. You need to learn to use the Vim editor before posting on Mastodon.
FALSE. There’s also an emacs plugin.
4. Mastodon is only for computer nerds.
FALSE. As you can see, we sometimes try to make jokes that everyone could understand.
I want to echo what other Mastodon admins are saying: please report any harassment or violative messages you're seeing. Unlike the birdsite, your local admin will likely react quickly -- and you'll make the instance better for everyone, not just yourself.
So... please don't just ignore! Let us know if there's a problem.

I feel very defeated.
The NY State ACLU put out an antisemitic tweet associated with an investigative report about Jews this week.
Is the US just unsafe for Jews at this point? Do I have any real hope of being able to return to NYC one day?
I know a lot of Fediverse folks are hated for just being who they are. If you feel comfortable doing so, if this is you, how do you handle it? What do you do to cope?
Anarchist News: **Jewish Anarchism**
"From The Institute for Anarchist Studies by Shane Burley August 23, 2022August 22, 2022 A Review of No Masters But God, by Hayyim Rothma, (Manchester University Press, 2021) If anarchists know Jewish history at all, it is likely the role of Jewish radicalism in the political battles of the early 20th century.

In the grip of such an approach, the FAI's document states obvious things (with which one cannot but agree) that, when confronted with a context other than that created by generalized war, suddenly lack meaning and are literally beside the point"
Anarchist Federation from CZ has a very good answer to italian "For a new anarchist manifesto against war" published in June this year. Italian anarchists seems to continue insist on abandoning comrades in #Ukraine. #Anarchism #Solidarity
