Ok, so I suppose I should do an . I'm a fannish type person and an addictive reader. was my first fandom home back in 2011. Since then I've suffered both minor and serious ailments related to , , , , and the . Recently I've been assailed by rogue feels. Would love to get to know you! :)

An interesting discussion about fediverse and how it might handle the particular kinds of antis who want to no-platform certain content, over at Hubzilla here:

Important gif for sinning... because both @asya and myself can't deal with this level of hotness!

It occurred to me the other day that sometimes I want to follow people on platforms I don't want to get directly involved in. I used to use RSS to follow Youtube channels until I was watching so much I gave up and started subbing on YT. I have a handful of Instagram users that I rely on a third-party RSS tool to follow because I have no use for most of Insta. But in the Fediverse, if I want to follow someone on Peertube or Pixelfed, I can do that with a Masto account, no need to join the others.

I just created an AO3 feed privacy group and subscribed to the stucky feed on AO3, and I have just gotten two new stories sent to my hubzilla dash. \o/

And you can do YouTube, DW, Tumblr blogs, anything with a feed you guys...

Kill the concept of "RT does not equal endorsement."

Don't share content if you don't endorse it.
