Hi there,

This is freespeech.host, a place for thinkers of all varieties to discuss... well, pretty much anything they like. Perhaps especially "controversial" topics that might be risky to talk about in other places. Put bluntly, I'm a free speech absolutist -- but not everyone else who I might federate with is, and thus cooperation places limitations. My intention is to give you as much freedom to discuss whatever you like as is possible.

Politics is a hot topic in most places, but you can toot about anything you please, with few limitations. Please bear in mind this is intended mostly to be about discussions so there may be better places for those interested in posting artwork, etc, unless for some reason you feel your artwork might be unwelcome. If its unlawful I'll still remove it, though.

I don't care where on the political spectrum you are, you are welcome here to discuss anything you like. If you are the kind of person who's feelings get hurt by disagreement, or expect me or some other mod to jump to your defence because someone insulted you -- this isn't the place.

You are on your own here, there might be dragons inside, but I feel that real, intellectual discussion is worth the risk. If you feel the same, come on in. Just to be clear: You don't get removed if you don't share my politics, everyone left, right, or totally disinterested can join in. You can preview whats going on to the right of the page, which shows the LOCAL timeline only, that is posts from other servers don't show up here, but can when you have an account, but if you want to preview THIS server showing posts from the Fediverse isn't as helpful.

On this server you do not default to follow the admins, but a system account used only for instance relevant notifications about upcoming downtime or maintenance, policy changes, etc. This is mainly because I'm not going to assume your politics, you might not want to hear mine so this way you can opt in if you like rather than opt out. You are of course, free to follow if you like.

As a final note, this is intended as a permanent server, so I've setup responsible administration tasks like automated remote backups and an minio/s3 data storage.

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Built for real conversation
With 500 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.
You’re a person, not a product
Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.
Always within reach
Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.
A more humane approach
Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
