It looks like it's been offline for about 4 hours-- I just woke up, and the server's drive died, so I'm restoring from a back-up. It'll be up within an hour.

EDIT: It's back up! I restored from a ~four day-old backup, and I tried to restore as much from the failed drive as I could, but you might notice a file or two missing. I'll start making daily incremental backups.
Sorry about the down-time, mates.

unmoderated [...] Do you think it's an accident that it has the userbase that it does?

good point! yea, that's not so rad. distribution is good, but distribution of moderation (i.e., voluntary block-lists, the sort of thing people brought up along with konsent) is pretty important

yea, I think that's a good part of it.

I think another reason is that it's becoming easier and easier to fill every empty moment with phone usage, so it's becoming less and less socially acceptable to strike up a talk with a random person, just in case you're interrupting something, y'know?

and at least for me, it's easier to distract myself with a laptop or something in public than to interact with people more and actually overcome whatever anxieties I've got and get better at making friends. that's probably a common one, unless i'm over-projecting.
