Number of neurons that fired in Musk’s brain indicating to himself that he might be widely unliked: 0

I have a former best friend who still somehow finds a way to fanboy over Musk, despite the excessive information about him and actions he's taken. All very public and easy to find information, yet never swayed the guy's opinion and the last time we talked about it he was still fanboying. It really should have been a warning sign of things to come with that friendship. Truly, only mentally and emotionally inept losers are still on Musk's side and the former friend's the only person I know who still has a favorable opinion of Musk.

Tough luck man. Have been in this situation a couple times.

Current working theory is that the reason are our relationship templates formed in childhood.

If someone has had abusive and/or gaslighting role models early on, they will not avert or even seek narcissistic relationships. I have been in this situation for a long time and am working for years to get rid of it.

This is what I think happens with people liking clear cut narcissists like musk and having friends who „somehow“ like him.

TwilightVulpine,

Sometimes people flock to a figure because they see them as a struggling underdog challenging the whole world.

But even that angle kinda falls apart when you remember that this guy is the wealthiest person in the world. He's not a brave rebel. He's not even taking a stance on something important, though he very well could, with his money.

ptsdstillinmymind,

Cult like culture, all the people that worship rich people are delusional. From Muskrat to Drumpf.

I long so desperately for the days when I didn’t know who Elon Musk was

I support censoring all news related to Elon and his companies

justdoit,

I was kinda hoping the enoughmuskspam community would be focused on talking about innovative tech/engineering work happening at other companies. I guess that’s more the point of “futurology”, but still…

But, enoughmuskspam is just… Musk spam

TwilightVulpine,

I'm not surprised a community with a person's name in the title focuses on them. It's like saying "don't think of a pink elephant"

hansl,

It’s meant as a black hole of Musk spam posts. A way for other communities to just say “we’re banning any news about Musk, post those in EMS”.

I guess technology didn’t get the memo.

bbplay13,

His companies are fine. (minus Twitter) SpaceX and Tesla are great he just needs to keep his fucking mouth shut and do his job. The man is cringe and is taking his billionaire status too hard.

I kind of wish they’d found some better way to insult him than “bring back Twitter”.

You know, something he finds really offensive to shout at him.

Like “trans rights”.

The appearance will not save X. People are leaving the free-for-all cesspool as a result

Ertebolle,

I get more engagement on Mastodon with 1/10th of the followers, and that's supposedly the least popular alternative compared to Bluesky/Threads.

Because people on mastodon don't feel "captive" to the corporate social media feed and are free to engage however they want.

They blame the people for how hostile their platforms are, but all the while feed us only content that makes us angry or upset -- so yeah, it's not a surprise that the platform is a cesspool when they're the ones stirring the shit in the first place to keep engagement high.

ImplyingImplications,

Facebook and TikTok are salivating at a chance to become the next Twitter. Both have rushed out Twitter like updates since Musk has been making terrible changes.

technologicalcaveman,

I really wish he chose anything but X, cause when I hear X I think of Xorg. And I like Xorg, it's like one of my favorite things. Why'd he have to ruin X?

It was all a ruse to make you use Wayland.

technologicalcaveman,

I'm alright with that, my childhood dog is named Waylon and we often call him wayland, among other names. He's still going at 13, I just moved away. Thanks for making me think of my dog.

gk99,

This is why Counter-Strike is better: Elon Musk has yet to show up.
