That's interesting. Mastodon can't locate Glasswings accounts. Was able to locate @smellsofbikes but only the Mastadon account, no others.
No diasporg accounts either. It appears that Diaspora in general isn't as federated as it looks. Attempted to look up and @earendil too; struck out.

Perhaps check out Friendica - it seems to play well with them. It has the added advantages of long-form posts, editing, bbcode, et. al.

After seeing all the neat features of Mastodon, I finally up and did it--got a Mastodon account. To make it obvious, I annotated the username with {Mdon} (they've got an infernal character number limit) but I used a variation of my usual recognizeable avatar as well: The Clarakeet.
...Clarachters, like Clarapatra.
Izzit a comment.
Testing testing testing. 🐛 🦋
AHA! That's how Mastodon comments work. Love the resident emojis.



The surrender hotline for Russian soldiers

I mean, every modern war has a surrender hotline, right? You call the German Army hotline when your Panzerhaubitze malfunctions, so there might as well be a surrender hotline.
Officials in Kyiv say they've had more than 3,500 contacts from invading personnel, as well as their families. There's been an apparent increase since Russian President Vladimir Putin mobilised hundreds of thousands of Russian men, and since the city of Kherson was liberated.

The Play’s the Thing

Needless waste of ruined lives
rippling into vast tragic waves.
“That’s how the game is played.”
That real lives are lost
never enters the ambiance.
Whose shame?
We are to blame for getting
caught up in this jolly old game.
Letting the players carve our name,
fashion the rules.
What has our honour cost?
Who is paying?
