Ah ! Bah voilà, si je ne suis pas d'accord, c'est que je suis un free-speech advocate
Comment tu trouves les "good ones" ?
Le whitelist-mode est utile dans certains cas mais c'est rare. (Et c'est un risque pour la décentralisation, de nouveau. Pourquoi se faire chier à créer une petite instance single-user ? La grosse instance est déjà acceptée partout parce que c'est une grosse instance.)
Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.
Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).
It would be really awesome as an appdeveloper to know about experience-breaking changes to Mastodon some time before they are released.
For the audio attachment it was like 3 days from pull request to release and now I constantly have statuses that look like they have a broken image attached in my Tusky timeline.
Fun fact about the license under which the Mastodon source code is published (AGPL) is that it requires any modifications to it to be published.
No secret sauce, no proprietary features possible. Which is why commercial companies hate this license.
Want to paywall "pro" features? You can, but anyone can take your code and run it on a different server for free.
Anyway, that's quite an interesting financial choice for Gab, a for-profit entity that sells "pro" features
