Tip for people seeing friends join counter.social -- it is not a good fediverse neighbor! Myself and a bunch of other admins blocked it a couple years ago because the people who were running it were unfriendly to the point of abusive!
They admit to some of this in their own FAQ: https://counter.social/faq.html
Get your friends on good servers. 💚
(Like here, for example! I'll send an invite code to anyone, and any Shop member can make invites)
