Why the Fediverse is significant, beside privacy
Because big corporations are not forever.
Say about them what you will, but there IS a value in social media, they do satisfy the need, they do scratch that ancient itch of human beings to hear each other and be heard. They do it quite perversely, as a side-effect to filling their shareholders' pockets, but still, as a matter of fact.
The corporations though, do close down for all kinds of reasons.
There was a time before Twitter. Someday Facebook will disappear. Someday, YouTube will go dark.
The Fediverse, in this sense, is a toolkit, that will allow people to rebuild the Internet as we know and love it today in the future, when most companies have gone extinct.
The Internet is not a thing that "just is", it's "what people do". The Fediverse recognizes and embraces this fluid, dynamic nature: every now and then there's new servers that pop up and old that ones go down. It's not really a big deal around here. And it's... beautiful?
alright I think I'm gonna take away my @hotmail.com email alias now
I've been switching all my accounts, tediously, on the web as recorded on keepass to either my @outlook.ph email (its current alias) or to my @protonmail email
there's still a few holdouts but I hope I can switch them in the future

IIRC the only place where I've used the name VetHarvester was in Google Play Games,
And even then it was the much logger, randomly generated "VeteranHarvester[some numbers]"
And even then I started shortening it to this name when I started playing JRPGs and Japanese strategy games again and they all had a 12 character limit
And I don't even have any experience in farming :p
San Antonio was up in a tight game after the 1st half! Until I couldn't see and started missing shots and bam, game ends with a double digit loss
