Basically, stop being an asshole to someone just because you don’t want to hear from them. Mute and move on. What’s so fucking hard about that?
(of course my verified status is just a green checkmark i copied from a unicode page but still i can take that sucker away if i piss me off)
The nice thing about running my own instance is I can verify myself and then take it away as a form of self-punishment for posting bad memes.
Boss: "What have you been working on?"
Seems like my original personal instance is working again. But, I've mostly given up on restoring that database backup. Got a whole big S3 bucket of orphaned images now. Maybe I'll download them and then clean up. Been having a nice time over at toot.cafe, though, so I wonder if I should move back?
Oh hey, I think I figured out why my personal instance here wasn't federating properly!
My Apache config was missing a ProxyPreserveHost On and so all incoming HTTP signatures were failing verification - because my server thought its host was 127.0.0.1:3000 rather than toot.lmorchard.com
Still haven't been able to restore that database backup without errors, though. So, here's a fresh start for now I guess.
