I think the only thing that worries me about Mastodon at the moment is people impersonating others by using same handle on a different instance. Anyone have any innovative ideas on how to work around this? Is it fair to give everyone first dibs on their handle across instances? Is that even practical?

@A1 Perhaps an opportunity to integrate with

@ennenine hmm that's a good shout. I'm all for decentralisation, but with user accounts it gets messy

@A1 Adding the possibility to see when did an user sign up ? Chronologically speaking it would do the trick

@MonsieurJ that may we'll come into play as I'm sure it is something which is being logged but not yet used

@A1 Maybe there should be a centralized 'name' thingy. Once you own a name on an instance, nobody can use the same one on another?
