NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM is a user on cronk.stenoweb.net. You can follow them or interact with them if you have an account anywhere in the fediverse. If you don't, you can sign up here.
I know it's kinda hard to communicate when people already have difficulty grasping the instance concept, but I wish more mastodon new user guides would explain that 'mastodon' isn't all of the network.

@lain
Maybe we should call them "entrypoints" or hubs or gateways or something.

"instance" makes sense to those of us who are devops or devops-adjacent but that's about it.

@deejoe @lain
I hate "instance." Though non-techies who've played MMOs with instance dungeons may be familiar.

"Server" or "node" would be better, imo. But that ship has probably sailed.

@deutrino @deejoe @lain what really gets me going is discord "server"

it's an SaaS tenant, and enterpriseworld knows, but gamers? nah, IT'S A DEDICATED SERVER

@calvin @deejoe @lain
I STILL haven't looked up wtf discord even is 😅 current best guesses: slack workalike or ventrilo workalike.
