I don't think people realize how much fedj is like the regular web in terms of being completely shit and controlled by one or two players. If you write fedi software that follows the ActivityPub and ActivityStream standards to the letter, guess what? It will literally not work with mastodon or any of the other major fedi software. Even if you also comply with proposed but not yet formalized modifications to the specs.
Mastodon has created an entire set of entirely undocumented de facto ““““standards”””” that all other fedi software is forced to follow since mastodon is the most popular software. They are literally google and google chrome being able to just make shit up and force everyone to follow, but even worse because at least google documents their ““standards”” (for now at least).
