@Obscurequokka I tried doing that myself — following those I don't exactly agree with — but it gets really exhausting over time to keep yourself from jumping into (mostly pointless) discussions. So I usually, eventually unsubscribe :-)
@isagalaev Exactly! I had to soon unfollow them for these precise reasons. I too have engaged in way too many pointless discussions on other forums, only to feel emotionally exhausted at the end of the day with no one changing their minds. Was determined not to let it happen here on Mastodon.
