@js @ivan @cj *shrug* the bug he talks about is a known issue that can be mitigated by disabling the chat feature. it will be fixed before 1.0 we just have more important things to chase first.

I mean, people generally like to conflate the protocol with some specific implementation. That being said, there's a lot of wiggle room in AP which will always lead to the same kinds of criticisms.

I'm not going to say Mastodon has the best implementation but I'm not going to shit on it either.
