for all the shit people give Gargron, you do have to recognize that he was so moved by the abuses of proprietary social media services that instead of working for a tech company and becoming part of the problem, he did something about it.
yes. Gargron is not perfect. but, none of us are. there is no single person who is absolutely free of sin.
yes. there's a lot of things I disagree with him about, like the 300k user instance that is mastodon.social, and the way half of Mastodon's features are designed.
but that doesn't change the fact that he chose to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. and so, as part of my yearly review of what I'm sponsoring on Patreon I decided to give him some of those resources.
