The key to a good Mastodon home timeline: show no boosts

If I'm bored or need new people in my network I go to the federated timeline, shudder for 2 or 3 minutes straight, and go back to my home timeline where I only see things originally posted by people I follow

I should have posted this locked so nobody could boost it, heh

@darius instant boost tbqh. Also, wow, I had a really weirdly almost-repulsed reaction to this - reposting is literally life on social platforms. Almost sacrilege to disable it (:

@antifuchs I also get notified when my posts are favorited but not when they are boosted! I sometimes forget boosting even exists and it's great
