@fabsh very conflicted on this one, at what point do you draw the line between incitement to violence and free speech? what about the fact that the more regulation you throw at this problem, the harder it is for new players to enter the field, which only makes the companies stronger? either way, the solution is fedi, question is how to get that to happen. Maybe there could be laws forcing all social media companies to federate? (if only)

@jack Federated is not the solution. I learned that when identi.ca failed. It’s too complicated for the public.

@fabsh heh, sometimes i feel like the internet as a whole is too complicated for the public

@jack Not really. Depends on who builds the tools. Open source nerds seldom do it in a way that works for the public at large... At least as far as frontends is concerned.
