Being a force of driving.
I want Lemmy.ml to keep their moderation strong like it is now and have more instances get created that can cater to a different form of moderation. That way you can have an instance with communities focused on for fun aspects and another for more political things. Right now it feels like lemmy.ml is the main flagship instance primarily and the others are kind of just there. Imo of course.
As more people joined the Fediverse, more sites would grow to accommodate the new users. You can have both big and small servers that focus on certain things.
It has not been a problem for email and it is technically decentralized. You would probably just get one company that had a larger percent of the user share. Imagine Google having a Fediverse server lol.
To top if off, I think Fediverse related sites are too happy with the technical aspect for most regular social media users. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. Just puts off people who would already might think getting onto regular social media is too much work.
When I first looked at Mastodon I noped out because they had a bunch of things to choose from and made it seem hard to use with the email style links at the end.
Sometimes I think society conceptualize’s individuality and consciousness wrong. We are being recreated by quantum mechanics all the time. Why do we consider ourselves one person continuously with that in mind. What is so different about uploading to a computer? Is the you in the computer not the same you as the one in the flesh?
Would blocking the instances work?
