Do you follow someone on Mastodon who does great posts but not-so-great boosts? Or maybe they boost too much?
You can mute just their boosts if you like:
1. Go to their profile
2. Click on "..."
3. Select "Hide boosts from"
This will not affect their own posts, which you will see as normal.
P.S. If you're new here, boosts are the equivalent of retweets or shares 🔁
Reminder to programmers, ISO 639-2/ISO 639-X generally is not a good choice for inclusive language options.
Sure, it has a lot of languages you might want to say you support but also...
- ancient languages (extinct since ancient times);
- historical languages (distinct from their modern form);
- extinct languages in recent times;
- constructed languages.
... is the website/service ACTUALLY able to support all these?

President Joe Biden made two nominations to the Federal Communications Commission -- a big step that could help restore net neutrality.
Biden named Jessica Rosenworcel as permanent Chair and added Gigi Sohn as a 5th commissioner to the FCC. Both have a long record of fighting for the public interest, as opposed to the interests of giant corporations like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T.
"A man in the UK is 230 times more likely to be raped himself than be falsely accused of rape, so low is the number of false allegations." (‘Factcheck: Men are more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape’, Channel 4, 12 October 2018)
I had no idea this was true, and paints the MeToo "debate" in such a distressing light. Why was it ever okay to present false accusations as newsworthy.
My previous landlord, who was a slumber was able to get harassment restraining order against me for adding her as a slumlord. She is a white female, the judge was a white female, her attorney was a white female, the attorney that refused to represent me in court was the white female.
The same system that aided her in "protecting" her from the "angry black person" that she was constantly antagonizing is the same system that let murder, Kyle Rittenhouse, walk.
You know a sex worker.
That is my air from, probably, 2006.
