Is it me or it's not possible to make a text search in ?

@jsavalle @Support You can only search for users or #hashtags, as far as I know. Someone implemented a full text search tool a while ago, I think, but it was somewhat controversial (mainly because of privacy concerns).

@stefanieschulte @jsavalle Just tried it via #GNUsocial on the word 'users' - in this part of the Fediverse, it works ;)

@grmpyoldman @stefanieschulte good to know... I should get an account somewhere on to play more with this platform...

@jsavalle or U help the mastos to improve the FLOSS-compat. (Mastodon has outplayed #GNUsocial) not 2 build a walled garden.

@grmpyoldman I haven't written in ruby since 2010... but yeah, that would be the most productive thing to do... totally overbooked rn in some other commitments but clearly a project I see myself contributing to at some point...

@stefanieschulte @Support interesting - I dunno why privacy would be a concern - if people publish something public - it's public - weird...

@jsavalle @stefanieschulte Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. There's not a text search option because too often it's used to find and harass marginalized people, and we want to avoid that as much as possible. ^N
