@ShadowJonathan I'd say check meta tagged posts from mainly Friday but also Saturday. A lot of opinions have been shared.

Just clicked the most recent closed issue on github as an example github.com/mastodon/mastodon-i

@ShadowJonathan he deleted comments and issues from some contributors yesterday in that repo. It doesn't seem to be going over well.

some ppl seem to think FOSS means "i permit you to contribute free labor to MY project" rather than being a collaborative effort

masto meta 

ive seen people suggest that the ios app thing means it's time to jump ship and... idk? i don't feel like the ios app itself matters because there were already plenty of apps, some of them good i hear. and gargron has made it clear before that he doesn't like any feature that doesn't look good on an instance the size of m.s (personally that's how i read the timeline thing, not "it's not like twitter wahh")

mastodon software meta :dont_at_me: :boost_ok: 

it’s very clear that gargron is just wanting to make as much money as he can with mastodon and nothing else. the sad reality of things is that we think as people who arrived in 2016/2017 and the people who are adjacent to this community, we’re now insignificant to him because there has been huge user waves to come by since that really outnumber us who are just using it as a platform and going with the flow of gargron’s shitty personal vision without caring much about it. he’s catering to them now because they’re the ones who bring in the money and who bring in new people, that’s all

everything that was good about mastodon’s team was mostly the products of a lot of the early contributors who were burned out by gargron because only his vision ever mattered to him
