Image of a post I just made
I'll have to update my back-end. Sounds like subtle but important updates!
I don't understand when I see people getting kicked off of twitter for wrongthink -- When you have an abusive partner, you leave that abusive partner!
I've got a few communities from Lemmy trying to Fed right now, and it's mostly fine but I don't have the titles coming in.
I've got ideological differences regarding freedom with the lemmy devs. OTOH, I don't run lemmy, so if I can participate from my own custom lotide instance I can live with that compromise.
Putting up walls is the opposite of the point of ActivityPub federation, after all. Free and open discourse without being reliant on anyone is the point.
I just go to the communities tab up top, then enter the remote community name in the text box for example @firstname.lastname@example.org and then hit "remote follow". Next you follow it with your local account using the button in the box. I don't have a lot of local posts on my instance, but I follow several lotide instances.
Lots of D&D humor. It was the 2000s so you could still make jokes that are funny.
It's ok my friend, I did the exact same thing! In fact, my instance didn't federate properly at first because I started calling it iotide and half way through switched to lotide and it messed everything up having both!
Honestly, I think the biggest thing the platform needs is people.
(That being said, my instance uses quite customized css)
The answer to online hate speech is to do nothing!
Hate exists. Closing your eyes to it doesn't make it go away. The more we give hate power, then the more power it has.
These people are giving hate more and more power. It's absurd and stupid.
The way to end hate isn't more hate like the left would like to pretend, it's with tolerance. Instead of giving them power by treating their words like they're true and need to be silenced, show them that there's a better way to live.
You can't keep ugly ideas hidden forever. Letting them stay in the light and having a better answer is the only solution.
I've watched a bunch of her videos, she's really smart in a lot of ways.
Gotta admit, having individual communities individually hosted is kinda awesome.
Being able to reach out to other communities from your own instance is great, I love that it's all in one place and it doesn't really matter where the other people are posting from.
Getting reported makes me laugh hard. "Oh, I'll ban myself. Sure. Getting right on that."
I think it's a mirror by peertube.biz

The details tag in html allows you to hide text until it's clicked on, and it already works in lotide.
On other platforms, the text is blacked out until it is clicked on then it is displayed, same with images.
Not sure how you'd do it in pure html, perhaps get rid of the offending content with a link that says "click to show hidden content" that would bring you to a new page with the spoiler/content warned content visible?
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as Hoot, is in fact, Lotide/Hoot, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Lotide plus Hoot. Hoot is not a social platform unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Federated system made useful by the Lotide corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full Platform as defined by Lotide.
Every time this hear this speech, I hear "I'm not racist but..."
It's unpersuasive to me. If you heard someone talking about "toxic blackness", you'd be looking for the Klan hood regardless of how many times the speaker insists they aren't racist.
This post is a bit redundant now because peertube 3.4 allows you to do a "one-sided federation" where you can follow a specific channel on an instance that otherwise wouldn't allow federation.
