complaining about Mastodon 

One of my big frustrations with Mastodon is the inability to post to a hashtag without the post displaying on the local timeline. So being on an instance that has a local "theme" such as this one, it isn't possible to participate in off-topic hashtags.

Seems like a missing permission level or something.

@drb wouldn't you just be able to CW the toot? Hashtags work behind CWs, just not in the CW itself.

Sure, but the policy of is that "off-topic" posts get posted as unlisted. It would be nice to have a post type that is federated but not posted to the local timeline.
