Remove fallback to long description on sidebar and meta description #12119

Fix #12114

This makes behaviour consistent. The long description is returned from API only. Sidebar, meta tags, and frontpage display short description or fallback to a string about Mastodon. That string used to be:

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

But I feel like that is very dry and too technical, so I am replacing it with the slogan we use in other places:

The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!

Small benefit: The "Learn more" button leading to the extended description page is now always displayed on the frontpage.
