Don't like CATS or all those cat photos that some of us keep plastering all over the #Fediverse?

Fear not, as Mastodon has built in FILTERS -- and all it takes is to configure one or more to get rid of pesky posts.

As a local moderator, I feel compelled to explain and share this with you - so you can hide all these pesky photos which I am particularly fond of, as are many, but maybe not everyone.

So, what to Do?

1. Click on the Gear icon, to visit the "Preferences" area of Mastodon.

2. Navigate down to the "Filters" menu item (see it on screenshot, on the left side).

3. And here you can configure *ANY filters you like*, based on a piece of Text to search for in fediverse posts.

To hide all the Cat maniac photos, I would suggest using something similar to the hash tags I normally use: #cats #mastocats #catsofMastodon #meow #xp

Enter that, or any other expression to search for in the proper line, see screenshot #1.

4. Hit the Save button and the filter will be saved and in effect from now on. See screenshot #2.

You have the options of "Delete" or "Edit" the filter later, if you change your mind, or if the poster changes their offending post routine.

** GREAT way to get rid of mindless Twitter reposts which some people hate -- I recommended that at another instance that had some Really BAD cases like that, and got many thanks from relieved users. ๐Ÿ˜œ

Any questions, please ask.

Love Cats? Post some, boost some, thank you! ๐Ÿ˜บ

I see is trending, which is lovely, but the nicest thing you can do is invite your friends and family to come see our independent, privacy-focussed, harassment-free servers.

I'm betting I'm not the only one who is doing this to take back the Web from megacorps and trolls who are killing the spirit of freedom, egalitarianism and empowerment that the Web was always supposed to be.

We need your help, so make it your goal to bring 1 new person to the ! Share the love ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

`Today is , with the UN calling on us all to act .
More and more of us in Wales are recycling, which helps keep resources in use and, importantly, out of our environment.

I have struggled today. I really wrestled with completely nuking my FB account. Really struggled to deal with all the racist responses to the posts about and the US riots. It's just the only way I can stay in touch with some family and friends.
Finally compromised by unjoining myself from nearly all the group's I was in (I got rid of all my 'dubious' contacts a while ago) and unfollowing a bunch of pages.
I hope that will be enough.

Here are the graphs for deaths, updated to today. It's very unclear to me what is happening at the moment, as we are getting death figures which are not following an obvious trend. Today's 8 deaths follow yesterday's 17, and the weekly average (which hitherto has been a fairly smooth line) is also inconsistent in its direction. 1/2
