If you meant one instance rules affects other instances by that, then no, that’s not how it works.


Mastodon App is just the tip of the iceberg of Eugen’s mismanagement. In 2020, he has allegedly taken over €60,000 to partner with the European digital surveillance data collection firm EUnomia. EUnomia’s operations are better summarized by this post by paulfree14 on librenet.de. Eugen is literally selling out Fediverse users to data collection agencies, not exclusively limited to users on Mastodon instances as they scrape public posts. EUnomia has in the past sold this data to large advertising companies, namely Google, as well as law enforcement agencies. This poses a risk to marginalized groups who are targeted by police on a daily basis.

Jesus christ, I’ll have to get the hell out of mastodon.social soon

While were here. I'd like to address theming on several context. on linux we should have at least one client that uses gtk for theming. GTK (and other theming format) is great on linux. On android however there is no such thing. sure you can theme the ui a bit but switching to every other app feels overwhelming because it doesn't look the same. a nitpick perhaps but I don't like it. All open source apps should use gtk themes or a derivative. I've talked about this already, If you're on any instance of pleroma you'd see that they really utilize theming to the limits. but the other half of the time you'd be using your phone with tusky. but it doesn't look the same as the instance theme (e.g. [disqordia](https://discordia.space), [cdrom](https://cdrom.tokyo), [udongein](https://udongein.xyz) ) Compare all of that with just the clients. it just gives you a light mode, and a dark mode. I think there is a potential for fediverse to get new adopters from mobile users. no other social media app is using custom themes like fedi, but believe me most of the users on social media are phone users. I suggest that in whichever way, devs should give theming options on mobile clients. pleroma already has theme packages in .json, this should be a breeze to intregrate in husky. The internet is meant to be diverse, Right? what's stopping fediverse from doing this
