Just as easily as folks step away from the news to to get a break from certain topics, it is very easy to do the same on the fedi. I encourage folks to do this. It’s just good to step away.
But it feels like folks are demanding CWs with only certain topics in an effort to sanitize certain experiences from the fedi so they can maintain their fantasy of being ‘progressive’.
A lot of our lives are constantly affected be the ‘politics’ people want to ignore.
Our existence is ‘political’

I think CW's are already used for this but imo it's not a good UX and doesn't serve the original purpose of having a CW on a Toot.
Hi Fediverse 👋
what do you think of this new landing page design? ✨
Feel free to leave your feedback here 🙂
For a hot minute I thought that Mastodon finally supports i18n'ed Toots, but it's just the translation functionality of Fedilab.
This is still one of my pet peeves with the fediverse — I'd love to annotate Toots with their respective language, so I could start tooting on German and English in parallel.

New instance suspensions
Hello my lovely •ists!
Just posting to inform you of a few new domain/instance blocks I added today:
These instances were created by people with racist, homophobic, antisemitic, and far-right ideologies.
These instances will no longer be federating with us.
Our full list of instance blocks can be found here: https://mastodon.art/about/more#unavailable-content
