I've made an account at Mastodon
My profile is [here](https://masto.ai/@remington). I, mainly, set this up to see how Mastodon interacts with the rest of the Fediverse including Lemmy. So far, I'm impressed with the simplicity and functionality of Mastodon.

Have any thoughts on how/why netizens end up having such extreme positions compared to the mostly offline normie population?
offline normie population = only online to post selfies and food shots on instagram/bigtech Like sheer fact that I'm ok with trans ppl being trans people is sorta extremism in my city.

This is both scary and infuriating.

The wave of new people on Mastodon doesn't seem to end
Until now Mastodon has done marvelously well but I'm kind of worried how long it can continue do so. The influx of people from the bird side is far from over or so it seems. ![](https://beehaw.org/pictrs/image/3a19d629-fbc5-4fc4-b52b-47c1f7e1b359.png)

right-wing libertarians be like
hey I am a genious I will simply make a social space (or social media website) without any rules. So everybody can do whatever they want. *Someone spamming horse porn everywhere* okay maybe let's have some rules, like no spamming or illegal stuff. *People keep posting my little pony content or gore to unrelated sub forums* Hmm let's just make a full CoC that basically only permits the kind of right-wing thought that we like. End result is a shithole that nobody likes using, since right-wingers don't even like their own people. genius

I'll confess I don't do backups regularly 🙀 In the past, I always followed the same routine: I start backing up my files but quickly run into issues and give up. Recently I corrupted one of the system files, nothing major but I have to reinstall the OS in near future So it prompted me to think about the whole strategy of backup. Before I waste 2 weeks trying to build "the perfect backuping systemTM" (and give up), I would like to get a peak how others are doing it. Choose any number and tell me I'm an idiot for even asking that 🤣 1. how much (of you personal) time you spend to assure regular backuping? 1. how do you backup settings of your software? 1. how do you deal with software that doesn't provide explicit export of settings? do you do it manually by an occasional export once in a blue moon? 1. do you use configuration managers like Ansible to quickly install/restore settings? 1. do you backup binaries/installation packages? 1. do you backup mobile apps and their settings? 1. do you backup snapshots of OS? if yes, please explain your strategy dealing with them 1. do you include temporary personal files into backup? For example: a shopping list 1. do you copy system files in a separate folder for further backup or instead put the paths of system files for backup software to grab the latest version? 1. do you backup logs? if yes, please explain your reasoning and situation. 1. what's your folder (hierarchy) of the drive where you store the backups? How did you come up with it? 1. do you keep all backup files on a single drive/RAID or you have a separate storage for groups of backup files? For example such groups: drive for Windows backups, drive for networking hardware, drive for mobile devices, drive for server related stuff, drive for grandparents' backups (😄) 1. do you keep files residing only in a cloud (excluded from backup)? 1. do you backup your emails? if yes, how do you filter them to exclude junk from backup? 1. do you backup your online profiles? like Facebook & google 1. how and when do you clean old backups? 1. what do you consider when buying a new drive for backuping needs? 1. how often do you test your backups?

We’re a collective of individuals upset with the way social media has been traditionally governed. A severe lack of moderation has led to major platforms like Facebook to turn into political machinery focused on disinformation campaigns as a way to make profit off of users. Websites with ineffective moderation allow hate speech to proliferate and contribute to the erosion of minority rights and safe spaces. Our goal with Beehaw is to demonstrate and promote a healthier environment.

Some thoughts on our philosophy:

Operating our server costs money. If you donate, you should know that 100% of the costs will go towards server time, licensing costs, and artwork. In the future if we need to hire developers or other labor, it would be sourced through the Open Collective Foundation, and it would be transparent to the community before any changes were made.

As a news aggregator and a social media outlet, with a focus on being a safe and accepting space, we strive to create a positive social impact. We will, also, help to connect underprivileged and minority individuals with education and civic participation by promoting a healthier online experience.
