@paul I think there is some space left, they should add more popups!

Seriously, Medium is definitely overdoing it and I guess the only way to stop that nonsense is not no longer read articles there. That's not great, because there is a lot of awesome content there, but maybe the only way to make people change.

@sheogorath Yeah totally, well in this I didn't read the article because it was easier to hit "back" than dismiss the popups, so perhaps people will just stop reading it naturally :)

Open social media for the UK

A social media community hosted in the UK; part of the Mastodon/ActivityPub federated social network, which allows you to follow users on other communities. It's a bit like Twitter but without a single company in control.

If you use this server, you are required to abide by our Code of Conduct. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other communities you can use.

If you're coming here from Twitter, there are some very useful services to help you find friends and automatically crosspost toots that you might like to set up once you're signed in.


This is a volunteer-run community administered by @floppy, and hosted by Mastohost in the UK. Please support our running costs by joining the Open Collective and becoming a backer. Thanks go to our existing backers - this place exists because of them!

Service status is available from our status page and the @status account.
