Ultimately Mastodon's killer feature is that it's a public good that someone built because they thought it needed to exist and not a startup someone built because they wanted to get rich quick selling other people's data.


@brunodias I still wonder if the advantages it has now really can scale up. eg. moderating local instances is all well and good, but what happens when fascists make their own instance? is there a way to moderate entire instances in or out of the federation?

...this sounds like a SW:TNG plot geez

@joshg Instances can limit how they federate (for instance awoo.space only federates with mastodon.social). So if the fascists make their own instance, other instances can just blacklist them.
