Ah yes because this concern never occurs with #Mastodon lol
Just because they don’t think about it, doesn’t mean they’re not liable… a lot of things go unenforced, or selectively enforced. If you’re even moderately dissident I recommend avoiding things like that.
Does it require more powerful hardware than #Mastodon would?
No idea, I think poa.st is the largest Pleroma instance and graf had to invest quite a bit into hardware, so it’s very possible. Pleroma makes it possible to run on very modest hardware, but it may have different scaling properties as user counts inscrease.
@MandyJane Haha very cool! I wonder how I popped into your notis tho
Yeah my main account @email@example.com is on a #Soapbox instance so it doesn't proxy media, and spams my campus internet with requests to load images from instances they block...and they started to notice. So I'm using this #Mastodon instance until I'm off campus and then I'll be back on my main.
@polarisera @alex @firstname.lastname@example.org @MandyJane From what I've heard it's something configurable you can add to your instance. I'd have to ask @curtis to enable it but IDK if his server has the capacity to do that...it already went down once before because the hard drive ran outta space lol
Getting away from centralized megacorporate platforms is important, so we've launched this Mastodon server targeted at voluntarists, freedom-loving anarchists, libertarians, listeners of Free Talk Live and LRN.FM and the members of the Shire Society.
