It feels like the internet is a lot healthier when you pause before sharing or reacting to anything, I mean literally never doing instant shares or instant likes or instant comments.

Even a few minutes thinking time can help you avoid falling into the 😡 trap, not just about politics but things in general.

It would be interesting if there was a fork of Mastodon where you literally couldn't interact with a post for a few minutes after you've first seen it.

It's like instant reactions on social media bypass our intellectual capacity, channel some kind of primitive violent rage from before we evolved proper brains.

when combined with sentiment analysis, you could probably compare two groups--one with a forced delay and one without--and see if the community becomes "healthier".

It would be interesting if toxicity/health of a community was optimized by social media companies as much as they optimize for engagement.

They would make no money from health so a for-profit organisation would never do this. It would have to be some kind of outside monitoring and regulation.

Also a lot of users (most users?) wouldn't want a delay like this, so there's danger of self-selection (people who want delay being more thoughtful anyway?).

Perhaps a basic problem of the internet that it allows instant information retrieval and transmission, depriving us of the healthy thinking time from older media :(

lol...with all the new traffic on internet, that is happening anyway. Especially on GAB!

We need a @[email protected] but for computer security. Including a "utility program that SwiftOnSecurity and I made".

At the end of the day I'm anticapitalist because capitalism is literally killing people I care about.

My new Pixel 4a 5G arrived, so of course I had to test the camera with a #nude

Having to move all the furniture out before a new carpet get delivered is annoying

Not from my most recent visit, but it was good to get up here while we could before Lockdown 2.

Fun times

Always exciting when you break a server and can't even get the backups to restore right.
