A summary of the argument against quoting and global full-text search in Mastodon.

Note I don't 100% subscribe to this argument, but I wanted to share. Oh, and the URL is xkcd.com/1974/

@deutrino to really prevent that though you need to shift social networks away from where full text searching everyone is even possible... right now if you ask all the good actors to do not do this, nothing's stopping a bad actor from doing it. Fixing that would probably mean moving towards more of a web-of-trust type social network model...

"If you outlaw full text search, only outlaws will have full text search"

@cwebber
Oh for sure. I mentioned this in a thread the other day that the current security by obscurity model is essentially living on borrowed time.
