finding an instance - be kinder? 

I dislike the "it's not hard" and other posts that kind of handwave or mock folks who are struggling to onboard with mastodon.

Change is hard. And folks who are expressing struggle to get on Mastodon are trying to become part of the community.

Folks have different amounts of time, spoons, tech savvy, hardware, etc. all of which influence their ability to jump in on a new platform.

Maybe less "hurr hurr it's not hard if you try" and more "how can I help?"

@425suzanne Yeah, I dislike the advertising that "Mastodon is easy!" It's not, and it puts some challenges up front to the user. It's frustrating, like playing a game that requires players to make decisions before they know the rules or how to win.
