Shut up, Wesley, they explained

Wil Wheaton finds himself banned from Mastadon. Whatever that is. Apparently for insufficient diversity:
Wil Wheaton isn't here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account. It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool.

Wil Wheaton isn't here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
But it's been made very, very clear to me that I am not welcome in the Fediverse, and I hear you. I hoped to find an alternative to the birdsite where I could find the same fun community that existed over there in the beginning, and it's clear to me that I won't be finding that. Before I leave, I want to just make something very clear, because I've spent most of my life being yelled at by people who don't know me at all, and I want the record to be clear.

Wil Wheaton isn't here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
During GamerGate, I was dogpiled and mobbed and brigaded and attacked by thousands of accounts. I started using a blocklist that was supposed to help stop that. I did not know that the blocklist I signed up for also had a lot of trans women on it. When I found out, I did everything I could to remove those women from the list I shared. When there were still innocents on the list, I stopped sharing the list entirely. Despite this, a mob has decided that I'm anti-trans.

Wil Wheaton isn't here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
This lie that I am anti-trans, or anti-LGBQ, is deeply hurtful to me (I know it's nothing like the pain LGBTQ people deal with every day, as they simply try to *exist* in a world that treats them so badly, but it is still hurtful in its own way to me). I just want to make it extremely clear: that is a lie, and the people spreading it are misinformed. So I'm leaving the Fediverse, which has treated me with more cruelty, vitriol, hatred, and contempt than than anyone on the birdsite ever did.

Wil Wheaton isn't here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
I know that I'm well-off, well-known, and as a CIS white hetro dude in America, I live life on the lowest difficulty setting. I know that I have very little to complain about.  But I still have feelings, and I really do care about the world and the people in it. What I see is a lot of anger and cruelty directed at the IDEA of me, from people who I just hope don't realize that it really does hurt me, in my heart, to be accused of being someone I am not,  and to be the target of a hateful mob.

Wil Wheaton isn't here. @wilw@mastodon.cloud
Anyway, take your victory lap and collect your prizes. You've made it clear that I'm not welcome here, and even though I disagree with the action this Admin is taking (banning me when I didn't break any rules doesn't seem right), I respect and support the Admin's decision to run their instance the way they see fit. Please do your very best to be kind to each other. The world is a terrible place right now, and that's largely because it is what we make it. Bye.
Oh, the irony. "Wil ditched Twitter because they wouldn't ban Alex Jones." This is a microcosm of what is happening in the Democratic Party right now. It doesn't matter how they abase themselves. It doesn't matter if they pledge their lives and fortunes. It doesn't matter if they are genuinely true believers. They are not Diversity and there is no place for them either any more than there is for those they called "Nazis" and "Neo-Nazis" and "white supremacists".

Which, of course, is why the Alt-Right is inevitable.

The best part is that this happened because Wil Wheaton used Randi Harper's anti-GamerGate blocklist.

They love to portray themselves as victims, but they use that status as an excuse to be as hostile, petty, vindictive, authoritarian and bullying.

Mastodon seems to be some kind of extremely gay "open" "source" "social" "networking" "platform" for people who have to leave twitter because it somehow isn't gay enough for them. Someone's going to need to make an open source struggle session API for these kinds of platforms so that they can more effectively bullycide the Wil Wheatons of the world for not being obsequious enough.

"Burners" - urban dictionary yields burner cell phones, and people who smoke everyone else's pot, and apparently it's also a slang term for pistol?

Which one is Mastadon going with? I presume the pot smoking one? That's not exactly a great moral stand any anyone's definition.

They are the architects of their own misery. They will attempt to placate, they will shoot their brothers and sisters in the back in order to gain social acceptance, and in the end they will never obtain it. They will be despised, execrated, and turned into pariahs by the very people they so desperately wanted to be loved by. They are useful idiots for but a brief whisper in time, but what happens when their usefulness runs dry? History is cyclical and we have visited these moments before in our minds through historical documentation. Their lives never end in happiness.

I looked it up, apparently it is a "decentralized social network", see here, but you already know this... however you guys did not read the FRENCH version of their page!...

"Mastodon contient des outils anti-abus efficaces pour vous aider à vous protéger. Grâce à la nature étendue et indépendante du réseau, il y a plus de modérateurs·ice·s"

This will be funny to English speakers, I guess. French has gendered nouns, for example a male moderator is a "modérateur" and a female is a "modératrice". Aaaand, the feminists have now decided that we should use "INCLUSIVE WRITING" which is this: modérateurs·ice·s (eeewww).

You see, it is a word that is both male and female! An attempt to converge the language.

It is very useful, because this form of writing allows instant identification of SJWs, so no-one needs to lose time reading any further.

Ironically enough, "modérateurs·ice·s" puts the masculine first, SEXISSS!!!!!

Yes, "inclusive writing" is similar, but much worse. In French adjectives agree in gender and number with the nouns that they modify. This means you have to rewrite every adjective into the cumbersome "inclusive" form. An unreadable mess, and a sure tell that anyone who writes like that is fully indoctrinated.

Long story short, that thing Whedon got banned from... I don't want to know what it is, but I'm pretty sure it's a nest of snowflakes.

Well yeah, not going to get in the way, but I'm 100% not going to let them out of the rumble pit they've jumped into by opening the gates to their territory. I want to see their blood, and if they feel like providing it for me by pulping each other inside their chosen confines, I'm not going to help that "victim" escape.

Even if I didn't want to see their blood, helping them out of the hole they jumped into foreshortens the whole lesson about why you don't jump in to begin with, so it's not even smart to let them out.

I looked it up, apparently it is a "decentralized social network"

By which they mean it's like Twitter if every person on Twitter could run his own node and set his own rules about what tweets from whom could come through it. So it should quickly devolve into islands as each SJW with enough tech knowledge to run a node gets butthurt over something someone else does and spins up his own so he can make it more inclusive of the right people and exclusive of the bad than the next guy's. Should be a good show.

Blogger Joe Katzman August 30, 2018 10:59 PM  

@64 That's about the size of it. Think of it as a precursor to the Internet's eventual national character, though I'm sure Mastodon's creators can't conceive of that future.

That's its strength and weakness. Want a Dread Ilk server? Host it, and bar outsiders. Want an SJW server? Host it, advertise as such, and see who comes. Furry server? No-one to stop you. And there are a lot of available tools for moderation, inasmuch as you're inclined on your node. This is multi-level, too. If an individual user discovers the furry instance before the own server's admin, and wants all content from there blocked? Can do.
https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/07/cage-the-mastodon/

This strikes me as a very sensible approach. Yes, there will be dens of snowflakes. You can cut them off. Want to run Mastodon solely focused on professional issues, and squish politics? Lots of tools for that. This is much better than centralized, convergeable entities with network effects per Metcalfe's Law.

If Wheaton had balls, he'd just find or start his own node. But he doesn't, so milk the LOLcow...

Hwil Hweaton thinks that being trans means being incapable of being "guilty" of anything.

which suggests the obvious line of attack on Hwil Hweaton.

1 - get on whatever blathering platform Hwil has chosen for his latest Social Media account
2 - establish your online identity as trans something or other
3 - start following and interacting with Hwil
4 - at some point down the road, announce that you've reached a cusp in your transition process and announce that you're choosing a new name to better reflect your current Reality.

something like "GayKikeFagNigger". you know. because you're transitioning to Milo and his 'husband'.

and Hwil can't tell you that you're wrong for doing so.

because you're "innocent".

because you're "trans".

Blogger Damelon Brinn August 30, 2018 11:39 PM

Mastodon is an implementation of activitypub. It is supposed to be a decentralized social network. But the flaw is that there are still communities and community managers/admins, so there are still thought police. I am working with another dev friend to see if we can develop a true decentralized network and we looked at Mastodon/activitypub but rejected their model.
