Mastodon - disk space usage 

That's quite surprising, I always thought it was media attachment the major reason for disk space eating. Wll surprise:

@pureevil @phoe actually, isn't silcenced nor blocked by So I don't know what to say...

@pureevil Just checked. We had a couple of reports round 2018 about toots from one was a dick picture with no content warning and one was a hate speech so we silenced the instance (not blocked)...
I don't know if things are changed there, we could try to give them another chance. @phoe what do you think?

@pureevil I think shitposter is blocked, but I'm not in front of a computer and I'm not 100% sure.

@fikran Yes, it's what we'd like to do.

Unfortunately, the soapbox migration tool doesn't work for Mastodon 3.0+ at the moment.

I probably found the home timeline issue, let's see in the next hours...

@fourier as I said about an hour ago, there are some issues with and I'm trying my best to fix them. It's not clear at the moment what the main issue is, so be patient.

We did it, Reddit! The new Pleroma release 2.1 is out, containing the first ever ActivityPub chat application!

Lots of changes in this one, I'm sure you'll like it!

Hi friends. As you surely have noticed, there were some issues with the instance lately. I'm trying my best to figure out what the hell is wrong with it.

I made some changes tonight, let's see how it goes.

Please, don't be afraid of contact me if you see something strange. You can direct message me or any other way.

There's some ways to contact me on my profile.


@tfb @loke I'm rebuilding the instance feeds after clearing the cache... It will take a while, let's see how it goes.

"Se soffri di diabete fin dalla tenera età, sei considerato un guerriero, ti guardano con tenerezza quando prendi la tua dose di insulina e trovi comprensione nel prossimo.

Se soffri di depressione fin dalla tenera età, sei considerato un debole, ti guardano con occhi sgomenti se assumi farmaci antidepressivi e trovi giudizio nel prossimo.

Chi soffre di un qualsiasi disagio psichico, infatti, spesso si sente “debole” e trova conferme nella società.

Lo stigma è un termine complesso che include problemi di conoscenza (ignoranza o mis-informazione), di attitudine (pregiudizio) e di comportamento (discriminazione).

Una persona che ha un dolore fisico non esita a contattare un medico; una persona che soffre di un disturbo mentale decide di ricorrere alle cure solo dopo diversi anni, precludendosi la possibilità di stare meglio."

Music / thoughts 

More and more "Mr. Knowitall"-like people nowadays.
Everybody seems to knows how to solve world-wide problems and who is to blame for those.
Strangely, tho, the ones to blame are always someone else.

"They call me Mr. Knowitall
I will not compromise.
I will not be told what to do.
I shall not step aside.

They call me Mr. Knowitall
I have no time to waste.
My mouth it spews pure intellect.
And I've such elegant taste."
