Learned a lesson today why it's important to run my own instances if I care about my data.

My previous account has been removed from my previous instance ( overnight including all my toots and media.

It's mostly the last part I'm sad about. (the export function didn't work for toots and media)

While moving to another instance is possible and fairly easy, this left a scar, especially since it's hard to show what happened. (for example to ask others if I'm being unreasonable )
