it's been said before, but: getting a bunch of boosts/favorites on a mastodon post is so much more satisfying (and feels so much nicer) than getting even an order of magnitude more likes/retweets/shares/whatever on an attention-manipulation social network post. mastodon favs/boosts feel more like individual commitments and not, like, purely performative acts coerced by advertisement algorithms
