People need to know that they do NOT HAVE TO PAY for having a website, shell access, gopher site, free radio shows...
AND you do not have to pay by selling your soul and attention by advertizing!
Free - as in freedom/freespeech AND free as in free beer for decades are available at
sdf.org/ and at
tildeverse.org/
Yes, they solicit donations, but not ravenously upon your attention span.
You can have a website. You can be a radio DJ with a scheduled show!! Come on! Boost!

@gemlog I am curious what their masto instances policies are. No problem, just curious.

@BalooUriza Honestly, I have no idea. I use a different masto myself.
Probably the usual proviso applies:
"don't be an asshole or we'll ban your sorry ass" :-)
I fail to see how we need several paragraphs of legalese to define common sense and decency toward one another for every fucking interaction or website.
In a public forum, you are obviously speaking for yourself, that's a given. Just try not to be an jerk or we'll ban you. Simple.

@gemlog Well, at least a summary since like, instances.social, has a picker of all the different common permutations of rules within the fedi.

@BalooUriza Interesting. I've just now taken their quiz.
For any instance, small or large, moderating to that extent is a lot of work and always falls short of perfection. I don't think it's reasonable of anyone to assume otherwise.
We all live in the big, wide, world and mastodon gives each of us the tools to mute, block and filter to our heart's content.
'Societal norms' are created by our own behaviour. :-)

@BalooUriza @gemlog

Yeah... their page (mastodon.sdf.org/about) doesn't really have a lot about the governance does it...

@banjofox
From experience, sdf-ers in general are pretty laid back and welcoming by nature.
Probably, there's just no one interested enough in creating an 'about' blurb when there is no problem to deal with.
