Brands, businesses, influencers and power users will eventually join the fediverse. Why not embrace them? Its in our best interest to grow the fediverse.

I started a new suite of tools in June to support them. It was created with privacy in mind, you will only see public data insights and stats. Any user will be able to use this feature. After federation support is finished I will focus on this again!

Why would anyone want brands, companies and other crap in their _social_ feeds? Isn't the whole point of why people enjoy the !fediverse that it's _not_ like the asocial advertisement platforms?

Let's not explicitly invite capitalism. Let them build their own damn tools.

@mmn The fediverse is meant for everyone, not just for people or entities you like. BTW, Diogo only has 2 weeks to finish the GS AP plugin so you might want to start helping him since you've done almost nothing as a "mentor".

Yes, anyone can do what they please on their side of the !fediverse - I just think that power users and companies simply are incompatible with the federated structure and that tools for measuring e-penises is asocial and thus in vain.

I also appreciate your work with Diogo but you should be well aware of my situation and our communication by now. I would prefer a somewhat more pleasant attitude than your above post. Thank you.

@mmn I would prefer if you maintain GNU/Social and actually respond to issues/merge requests instead of reacting to my statuses.

@dansup Time to respond to statuses via a phone I am holding in my hand and looking at during the short amounts of free time I have: short.
Time to review, analyse, test and possible fix/comment on merge requests: long.

Time and energy available in @mmn's life and mind: little.

Thank you very much.
@dansup in a way, yes, in a decentralized and federated network  anyone can join it. But... bear in mind that many people that came here (1) was due our disagree with that companies and people you invite to come.

And because free networks are made not just for developers but also a lot of contributors and just users, we don't like the idea that build tools for they.

I'm enough old to remember when there was no much people in Internet and some prophets start to guess that it will be better when companies came here.
Now we have just a dozen of Internet companies that believes they own Internet... and maybe they are right.

Anyway, @mmn did not said who can came to !fediverse and who not. Just who he/we don't like and for who don't want to work.

(1) At least in !gnusocial I think most people are here to escape for that companies and people you invited in your previous status, maybe not so clear in Mastodon. Just understand our reaction. :)

@dansup and about the other sentence of your status, I agree with @mmn that it's not a friendly answer.

I know and understand that you have had differences but both you and all of us have to think that there are a lot of people behind that liked to have !gnusocial improved and maintained.

I don't know what can we do, but at lest there are some people that we'd likes to help in anyway.

Please let's try to do it!
