    Aw, goodbye! It was nice having you here for a while, at least.

        I wish you'd stay since you have such a great sense of humor!

        ...without needing to write an essay about whether closed-source software is the spawn of the devil every time someone mentions owning an Apple Watch.

      Also, unsubscribing from (subtildes?) Groups! like ~tech, ~comp, ~enviro, ~health.coronavirus, and ~lgbt would remove an awful lot of both tech and politics.

      Some people have similar criticisms of Reddit. I've personally found value in alternate accounts that are unsubscribed from everything except niche hobby subreddits (at least,) for a much much better signal to noise ratio of stuff I like compared to stuff I don't care for, and recommend the same to folks who become disillusioned with Reddit.

      Edit: Also, may want to remove the misc.politics topic under your account's topic filter https://tildes.net/settings/filters

        On the main page, in the right sidebar, under the list of groups there is a "Filtered topic tags" link. Click on that and then Edit filtered tags.

        Is there a way to unsubscribe from a tag?

    Yep, @Deimos.

    Is it like one of those things on old fora where you have to manually ask the admin…?

    Yep, @Deimos.

    Bummer to hear you're leaving :/ its always extra sad to me when people who don't care about tech or US politics leaves. There's a larger conversation to be had (or I guess rehashed for the 10000th time) about the content dominance of certain subjects and how that is related to the 2020 tildes census data showing the site getting more tech dominated and more male over time. It's a bummer that we'll continue to bleed diversity of opinions but there's not much I can do about it so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ best of wishes to you Marjin, you will bee greatly missed.

    Feels like a few familiar faces around here have dropped off the map lately.
