Because I'm interested in helping people get onto platforms they control and not be at the mercy of Facebook, I wanted to understand what the pain points are for marginalized groups taking up Mastodon/ActivityPub.
From my reading thus far, the big blocker is that federation is opt-out, not opt-in and that the Mastodon Maintainers do not want to accept a patch to make it opt-in.
What are the other blockers? Who is writing about them?
Thanks. Boosts are welcome as are replies in private.
