Pixelfed DMs are a bit different.

You will only receive direct messages and notifications from users you follow unless you opt-in to public direct messages.

The filtered tab will show messages from users that are muted or that you don't follow.

You can mute DM notifications.

You can customize UI/UX settings.

@dansup I recently switched #Epicyon to also handling DMs this way by default, because allowing anyone on the fediverse to DM you only results in a lot of spam and harassment attempts. I'd rather the default experience of the fediverse be a positive one.

@dansup are these DMs like private posts or is it an actual chat? If so, will it be compatible with Pleroma chats?
