And while I can't speak for specific communities as a whole I don't see people more marginalized here, nor do I see complaints ignored.
I may not agree with every single implementation but I haven't seen people shut down for disagreement.
I can't really speak to specific critiques having not been on the fedi for long, but I feel a lot of this was just cherry-picking a few folks that had disagreements and complaints they felt that weren't acknowledged.
As for how welcoming it is?
@elisabeth Not literally, my good girl, no.
@elisabeth It is lovely to see you here. As it is to see you everywhere.
@Mateo I was just passing through.
@elisabeth Thank you for popping in my love.
