Instance advice 

Look, we can't control what anyone says. People are going to be what they are. But what we can do is set the tone for what is acceptable and what isn't.

The Verge is republishing The Internet of Garbage today, with a new preface. It was important reading for me in 2015, and I still recommend it now:

Hello! I haven't properly -ized myself yet!

I have an interest in decentralized platforms with a technology slant but I'm not educated in traditional cooperatives. I joined to see what wisdom this movement might be able to offer us geeks.

and one's right to choose their level of are values important to me. I respect the code of any community I'm part of but like to challenge the status quo frequently.

Thanks for having me,

Guess I need to join Loomio to get the whole social picture. I will, but as a newcomer this is a bit overwhelming. Maybe I just picked an interesting time to join.

Could someone kindly detail for me or link to's interpreted / accepted definition of "shitposting"?
