There are several opinions weather it's great what Julien Assange is doing or shit.

But he just asked for a decentralized twitter 'alternative'.
I've told him about the fediverse, and such.

Would you like to see Julien Assange joining the fediverse?

boost: yes
fav: no

Many boosts could motivate him to join, as I will forward it to him.
Many favs, to better stay away.

@paulfree14 wait isn't Julian Assange a bit of a transphobic asshole?

@Concerned_Commy if, having a lot lgbtq* around might the perfect therapy for him :-p

@paulfree14 @Concerned_Commy i know that's why i join social media sites, so assholes can use me for therapy

@Concerned_Commy @codeawayhaley
I've heard that a couple of times, have never saw it. could you link me something or describe what he's doing shoing his ...phobic

@paulfree14 Why should he care about the opinion of a few mastonauts?

@LienRag he asked for federated network.
There are several. His desicion will be based on the technology but also how he would be welcomed.

If majority of ppl here would say, fuck off he might just choose another software.

@paulfree14 They are federated, aren't they?
So what importance is the software he uses?
(I know that the Fediverse doesn't connect with the Federation, but Hubzilla is working on that IIUC)

@paulfree14 @LienRag
there are a couple of tools not yet federating as they use completly different protocols.
Just as a example: scuttlebut, retroshare, twister, matrix, briar.....

He can also just only choose those.

@paulfree14 this kind of poll is not fully functional since the upvote also propagates the toot to other people, while the downvote doesn't.

@elfio true result is biased. But still good enough to get an overview.
Also knowing that fav. have higher wight in this case

@paulfree14 anyone should deserve to join the fediverse, if they act like shit, they will be treated correspondingly in order to offend no one anymore...

@paulfree14 Doesn't using a boost for yes make a yes result more likely?

@stolas yes. It's a 'bit' biased. Meaning when viewing the fav/boost stats, fav needs to be multiplied with X.

@paulfree14 Actually, they should run their own node of the software they prefer. WL should be able to do this and no other node would be harmed if WL is under attack...

@paulfree14 Do you know that it's not well designed as boosts propagate and favourites don't? Not symmetric, not fair.

@paulfree14 @josealberto4444
yeah I know. Wasn't me not wanting polls integrated in mastodon. gnusocial has it...
But thought it will still give an overview about the opinions, knowing that outcome is biased and that fav. need to wight more in this case.
