Clear, honest, useful. Everything a promotional website should be.

This conversation is a perfect example of why stronger muting tools would be good for Micro.blog. Let people moderate their own timeline where possible. I assume this is not relatively easy to implement, given the nature of the platform (feeds, etc).

Children: “I need to use the internet to get advice on getting vaccinated because my parents don’t believe in it.”
