Why are there no dumb ?
I love the potential benefits but hate how everything is glass and touchscreens and apps.
It's a data and nightmare.

Is there a bot/plug-in that can block all other bots on , at least for my personal use, mainly search?

Found the first denier ever here on Mastodon.
Holy smokes, honestly didn't know they existed!
Nauseating

In the past 48 hours I've seen "If you use a tiling window manager you're probably a racist toxic fossbro", "if you support FOSS you're likely a liberal or a toxic fossbro", "If you use emacs you're part of the problem" and uh...
