The Case Against the Fediverse
(Mastodon, StatusNet, Librem Social, etc.)
@lunduke Gal-dørnit!!! Lunduke's being controversial, AGAIN!! :((
@lunduke the positives easily outweigh the negatives.
>trolls the whole fediverse
@lunduke agree, appeared after irc and xmpp and other federated systems but learned nothing from them and is stupid by design.
Solution to problem one: server1 blocks individuals from server2. Alternatively, set up an automated system where, if enough people from server1 block/report a person from server2 then that individual will be banned from server1
Problem 2 is not a problem.
You can use solution 1 for problematic accounts, or the admin can IP ban someone.
@lunduke Problem 3 is definitely a problem. There should be a good backup/restore tool (especially for follows).
@lunduke I still haven't experienced stupidity on mastodon. I have my account for more than a week, and I am actively using it. Maybe it depends on a server. There are many good servers not listed anywhere. I am using nice small, but professionally maintained server for my region.
@lunduke That's a very different experience than mine. There are advantages and disadvantages to the way fediverse works, but I've never personally had any issue so far with trolls, etc. maybe because I am not as much of a public figure. The anonymity side of it is a strong positive to me.
@lunduke Time to rethink!
