A lot of folks' fear is that when Mastodon grows it'll absorb bad people. I'm gonna say this. I think even if Mastodon literally grows to the size of current Twitter, the world will be better off overall just because of how Mastodon is structured and what values it represents and what tools it provides for dealing with those problems.
@Gargron what tools would prevent an instance of mastodon to be setup specifically for disruption or harassment?
@doolbneerg users can mute instances and instance admins can silence or ban other instances
