It seems like it's pretty easy to impersonate someone via federation. Create an account with the same user name and icon but at a different server URL. Most people won't notice since the server isn't displayed anywhere in the UI.


Can't wait for the Mastodon key signing parties so we can all build our webs of trust. 🙃

@Farktonix yeah man this is giving me gnu flashbacks, nostalgic and sweat inducing all at once. Many I've got so many characters, i can just keep typing.

@Farktonix ALSO the open source version of timehop should be GNU Flashbacks. As in, do I have any gnu flashbacks today? It also recognizes the possible traumatic element timehop ignores.
