A Word about CC’s Defederation Policy

This is being posted on the site information page so I can refer people to it in lieu of a FAQ. CyborgCentral's Mastodon server will not federate with any fediverse server that operates solely for the purpose of promoting political party propaganda. There is no difference between right wing or left wing sources in this […]

Propaganda is Everywhere

This is a federated service, allowing it to interact transparently with other Mastodon servers on the distributed network. If you would like an account, please contact me, or […]
