Well, you’re right. for the most part action matters more than understand psychology. To me I’d like to be at a level of understanding that would make my deductions and strategies more clear, make movements that would otherwise damage the opposition the most.
Finding out why people come here in the first place, finding out why they stay. is like finding the solution to the problem.
Then, when we discuss the reasons we understand more of the psychological aspects of it, alot of improvements to our methods of evangelism can be made.
Psychology as in: social psychology, social engineering.
Mastodon App is just the tip of the iceberg of Eugen’s mismanagement. In 2020, he has allegedly taken over €60,000 to partner with the European digital surveillance data collection firm EUnomia. EUnomia’s operations are better summarized by this post by paulfree14 on librenet.de. Eugen is literally selling out Fediverse users to data collection agencies, not exclusively limited to users on Mastodon instances as they scrape public posts. EUnomia has in the past sold this data to large advertising companies, namely Google, as well as law enforcement agencies. This poses a risk to marginalized groups who are targeted by police on a daily basis.
