Decided to join mastodon, but pessimistic about it longer term:

@jefftk wow you got mastodon comments up and running fast. I'm also skeptically curious about activitypub as an alternative to central platform ownership

@city getting comments set up on a new platform is pretty easy for me because the cross-posting is manual. Though if I like Mastodon then at some point I'm going to want to pull replies back down to display on, which I expect will be harder

@jefftk your concern about spam is ironic, because the primary way we solved email spam was to move a huge amount of the email traffic to a handful of centralized hosts. (Gmail and exchange.)
