Mastodon gatekeeping

Mastodon gatekeeping

I have mixed feelings about all the gatekeeping going on by Mastodon "old-timers". All they want is to maintain the culture that they've worked so hard to cultivate. And yet, culture is determined by the people in the community. There are a lot more (new) people now, so things are going to change, whether you wish them to or not.
