If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.

«What’s attractive about Mastodon isn’t the software,[...] it’s the values of the platform. No one is trying to hack the attention of Mastodon users for profit, no one is bombarding us with ads. It’s just a community of people, communicating.»

A sharp and informative article in the Wire on Mastodon vs Twitter:

«And that's [Twitters] problem: A town square, by definition, can't be a business. It needs to be a space owned by the people. That's what an Elon Musk Twitter can never be, and what Mastodon already is.»
