Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.
Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).
I don't want to post screenshots but some comments I've seen today lead me to believe not everyone understands how exactly the stuff between Gab, Mastodon, and Fedilab ties together.
The Gab event is remarkable as a threat to Mastodon apps in app stores, because there's a precedent of Gab's own apps being banned.
For end-users, it's nothing special. Servers more toxic than Gab have been dealt with on the fediverse and your nazi-free server will remain nazi-free.

J'ai repéré une petite erreur dans notre méthode de comptage de @typochon et moi qui explique que nous avons un peu surestimé les deux derniers arrivages de signatures. Maintenant que c'est corrigé, je propose la prédiction suivante : demain matin, on devrait voir http://www.adprip.fr (ou https://dav.li/rip-le-compteur) afficher un nombre proche de 230 000, soit 5 % ± 0,1.
Software doesn't have a sacred mission to be neutral. Software can be neutral. As a software developer you don't have to be, and your software doesn't either. #tusky
