I've finished writing part 1 of "OcapPub: Towards networks of consent", which is to say the "Conceptual Overview" section https://gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/blob/master/README.org
There's a lot there already, and we haven't even gotten to Part 2, the "How to Build It" section yet. I'll begin work on that tomorrow.
What's here already is more or less an explanation of *why* OcapPub is taking the particular direction it is taking, and why other approaches run into serious problems.
@skunksarebetter Regarding "echo chambers", it's a concern, but I think if we allow people to have multiple identities (as opposed to fearing about people judging their one solo identity) they can also better explore ideas.
But I think echo chambers aren't as much of a risk as spam and harassment anyway.
@succfemboi @skunksarebetter @email@example.com If you read https://gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/blob/master/README.org you'll see that I challenge whether our current assumption of how we implement bans and other abuse moderation are actually sufficient for the systems we want (and the level of protection for users we want), and indeed, the fact that we can't stop people from creating multiple accounts is part of it.
We should acknowledge this and look for a solution that doesn't require a lockdown on number-of-accounts to function safely.
