A lot of my friends on Twitter seem to have a deep hatred of Mastodon, and I'm trying to figure out why. I can certainly understand just not wanting to use Mastodon, Lord knows, I'm here very rarely myself, but I don't understand the vitriol against it.

@twylo a lot of people have issues with instances that rule with an iron fist

@xarph I can certainly understand that, but there are lots of instances, or you can even run your own (god forbid, I've done this and I hated it, what a mess the software stack is) if you really wanted to. I think for some of them the problem is discoverability, which is definitely not great here.


@twylo there aren't really any Main Characters here so everyone feels weird and lost if they didn't already follow a bunch of people on the instance.
