OKAY so I'm gonna try and keep this as concise as possible to keep from clogging people's tls.
The long and short of it is that corporations exist to to not only exploit the working class and keep the hegemonic structures that benefit them in place, but also to divide us into neat little subgroups that constantly fight. In order to do that, they pit our interests, falsely, against each other. For example, the plastic straw ban.
I'm not sure everyone actually knows, so I'll say this:
The Mastodon "federation" is actually a smaller part of the larger "GNU Social"-network.
Everyone/everything that is on Mastodon is on GNUsocial, which is older and has less uhmmm "guidelines" as to what each instance can do (e.g. up to nominally infinite charatcter-limit per post in some cases and in other cases less than what Mastodon has).
I put "federation" in quotes because it is called that but is actually a confederation.
Any member (instance) may choose to leave the "federation" or to ban any instance from everything on itself, both ways.
That is a confederation.

I really hate to ask but my roomie stiffed me on bills when he moved out and I basically had to spend every penny I had to cover rent and I just now discovered that he might have punctured one of the tires on my car that I can't even come close to affording to repair right now.
Car aside, bills are piling up and I'm scrambling my ass off trying to find work but nothing has even seemed remotely likely to happen yet and I'm a little panicky at this point.
I'd really appreciate anything anybody can do to help, boosts included. 💖
