If you have time to brand the vulnerability you found, then you have time to notify every single vendor that could be impacted.
I think it’s important to quit framing Mastodon as a Twitter replacement. They both have different uses!

For literally every nyc resident: get free things with NYC ID! Also, join a friggin' credit union; they're infinitely better for our communities than banks, and many (such as LES People's) allow you to withdraw cash for free from ATMs in McDonald's and 7-11's across the country.
