tl;dr masto's decentralization and user-run aspects are its strengths, not its weaknesses
@jeffperry i mean sure there is, there's your local instance admins for day-to-day issues and there's the Masto dev team for code issues
@irisjaycomics 100% agree but i think it takes a while for stuff like instances and federation to sink in for new folks; it's a whole extra axis to move in. also i think the exact people who need an out from twitter are the same people who are coming here with scars and hypervigilance; control over identity and guarding against impersonation is high on the checklist
@anfael this is totally fair!
