Is it bad that one of my favourite things about mastodon is that the suggested followers is "Whom to follow" rather than "Who"?

"That's a girly cocktail" oh you mean a female-presenting tipple?

Before we get all 'The Sky is Falling' with Alt-Right knuckleheads migrating to specific instances that cater to them, remember:

1. The block feature actually works here and should be used liberally if you see bad faith arguers or worse.

2. Instance-level personal blocks can be executed on the web client by going to the user, opening the additional […] menu and clicking 'Hide all from this instance'.

3. Petition your local moderating team to ban and suspend instances outright. We'll listen!

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks

Make yourself a nourishing meal. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive, just tasty.

My husband went to a local party meeting tonight and told everyone "the immigration motion makes us slightly more liberal than Theresa May but less liberal than Jack Straw of David Blunkett" and now they all hate it too, hooray.

It seems to be an effective line (feel free to steal), and it is true. Sadly.

Mastodon for Liberals

Welcome! This is a trial instance to provide a community for liberals on Mastodon. We're open to all who think their beliefs broadly align with the Liberal International's definition of Liberalism but we wouldn't be Liberals if all didn't have some areas of disagreement with it - so don't feel you're unwelcome if you can't agree with all of it.

Please note our Code of Conduct - we won't tolerate abusive, illegal, hateful or bad faith behaviour - but as long as you're respectful of others and civil then you should be fine :)
