Mastodon is giving me a newfound reason to hate web development, I'll tell you that.
"If you don't like something about our software, feel free to change it yourself!"
Unmentioned: "But be prepared to constantly upkeep your changes while we move fast and break things, constantly requiring you to reimplement everything all over again to the point of burnout; and if you ever get tired of the upkeep, we'll make sure you can't contact the people you rely on again…"
I am going to stubbornly backport every breaking change to 1.6 until I can no longer do so, I swear.
Just out of spite of this "move fast and break things" methodology that web dev has embraced.
I'M GOING TO STAY UP UNTIL I GET THIS DAMN THING WORKING
It's already 5am and what little semblance of a proper sleep schedule I had has been shot dead by this point
