My primary problems with Mastodon (the software, as opposed to the communities) are:
* no mark-up support
* Eugen is, to my knowledge, a straight prep

Eugen should at least have to be like a cool punk antifascist or something to continue being project lead imo

@juliana

Eugen needs to give us opt-in federation, control over who can reply to posts, markdown support, and longer character counts.

@emma I completely forgot that Mastodon only has blacklist federation in the year of Our Lord Jesus Christ two-thousand and twenty-one

Admins can change the character count though can't they?

@emma also, reply controls are an absolute yes. Something like booksite does where you can choose specific people who can or cannot see a post. Maybe save it as another option in the visibility list.

@juliana

Live Journal had this in 1998 and Dreamwidth improved on it in 2008, so there's no reason except some dude on GitHub going "but that's not in the activity stream spec."
