I just want to hang out with my friends and talk about games and weird fish and silly trivia. I need to remind myself that I don't need to weigh in on everything that passes my timeline.

...I need to remind myself that I shouldn't weigh in on everything that passes my timeline. This is not a boast, it's an acknowledgment of reality: I have thousands of followers and follow hundreds of people, I maintain one of the more popular guides to Mastodon, I run an instance. I have an inordinate amount of influence (and honestly I'd rather not! but). I should do a better job of choosing the issues I speak about and, honestly, of speaking about them.

Put a different way: I carry an enormous stick. I should speak more softly.

@noelle Beat me with that stick.

@baronvonjace lmao I knew someone was gonna take it that way

@noelle Not sure I agree. I think having a big stick means there is additional weight to you needing to speak about the important things.

But it does not mean you can't speak about all the other things too.

Also it increases the importance of speaking correctly when you do speak.
