@CaribenxMarciaX I agree. Those "poor things" didn't get here mostly because of privacy concerns or avoiding profit-media, advertisement or flame wars, they only came because of one - negligible ;) - person.
That type of shallow, hysterical (non-)reasoning might have kept many people here from ever trying out Twitter at all. I guess.
@jayrope @CaribenxMarciaX Well, when you say that the influx of new fediverse users is “only” due to the silly man. Many people have been dissatisfied with the other place for some time; recent developments have just pushed them over the edge. And then the wave of new users itself becomes an attractor: you’re more likely to find a conversation that interests you.
@Viveka @CaribenxMarciaX Thank you, Viveka. I suppose a fediverse can't really be ruined by size, while it is relatively easy to relocate to another more niche community, when the own server gets too big. And the muting/blocking feature helps of course to create anyone's own version of this, even if taming the federated stream seems impossible now. Personally i appreciate an influx of diverse & clever people.
