Discussion on: A (Belated) Hello World!

I'd tend to agree, I did find that after applying the "block user" and "block instance" buttons relatively liberally, things cleaned up quite a bit. While blocking wasn't a tool I felt particularly compelled to use on other platforms, it might just be a necessary evil when it comes to federated platforms.

I also do find myself wondering if I would have a different experience with a more niche instance, rather than a general-purpose instance like mastodon.online. Certainly might be worth comparing the two.

I generally use one instance which I found randomly, and it's mostly populated by developers and the like.

Yeah, I might do some shopping around for a niche instance to try out. I went with a more general one because I wanted to get a feel for the "average" user experience, but long term I suspect a more personally relevant instance might make for a better home. Guess we'll find out!
