Literally every one of us who runs our own SMTP servers 5 minutes into looking at ActivityPub: "This looks like email. Don't you think this looks like email? We're going to have email problems on this thing that looks very much like email."

The architecture of #Mastodon
Them: "Mastodon is hard to use."
Me: _gets started easily_
Them: "The #fediverse is fragmented - hard to find anyone."
Me: _easily finds many folks here I know or enjoy_
Them: "It's just white male tech nerds"
Me: _discovers fairly robust presence of non-white, non-male folks_
Them: "It's set up so it's antiviral"
Me: _sees more interest in my thoughts here than ever on the birdsite_
Them: "Local servers are like isolated islands."
Me: _finds a canoe to explore archipelago_
To all mastodon admins:
Hi! I’m Evan Phoenix, the primary author of puma, the ruby webserver that powers mastodon!
Please reply or DM me if you need tuning help! I’ve got no officiation with the mastodon, just want to see you succeed!
(Quick Tip: set WEB_CONCURRENCY to core count * 1.5 and then tune MAX_THREADS. High thread values will see diminishing returns!)

@nlnetlabs posted a thorough article on the possible negative side-effects of the proposed Cyber Resilience Act for opensource development.

Please boost this toot to make others aware of the issues at hand.
If the #Fediverse is going to show itself friendly to marginalized voices then it needs effort put in. I can’t in good conscience tell folks join #mastodon knowing they can land on problematic servers & be walled off. The feat of walling off has a purpose but it can also stifle community/discovery. I’m trying to brainstorm how to use this key fediverse tool while still allowing for communication/community building & providing safety for those doing the work. Basically building a neighborhood.
