@rey i kinda dig this idea, or something like it. and no one could stop someone from federating with groups outside the whitelist, but if you're on the whitelist you agree to some base-level good behavior TOS
@rey and it'd be cool if the basic mastodon software synced with it so admins could switch between "unfiltered federation" vs. "whitelisted instances"
@rey i'd even settle for a way to set up mastodon to accept a blacklist or whitelist, and let admins share those lists via importable files. maybe that would soothe the folks worried about centralization
