Since there’s a lot of new people trying out Mastodon, something to be cautious about: your DMs can be read by admins of your instance and the instance of the recipient, and when your toots cross an instance boundary, it’s possible for your private toots to get boosted.

On the off chance that this tip will save someone else an hour: CSV files don't escape double-quotes inside double-quotes with backslashes, e.g. "\"yes\", they said".
