anyway, Gleason misunderstands the Pleroma team's philosophy of not actively pursuing growth of the Fediverse.
it is more that growth of the network will happen as a function of the network having intrinsic value and social utility.
in other words, instead of the traditional capitalistic approach of pursuing development as a function to grow the network, the network should be grown organically as people find social utility in its use.
@ariadne Speaking of capitalistic approaches, is it just me or has there recently been a bit of fragmentation among big social media with the scandals affecting Facebook and the whole Twitter/Musk affair? Because I swear I've seen a resurgence in newer sites, platforms, and protocols as of late.
