It has come to my attention that Mastodon, and/or OSocial, and/or the Fediverse, are no longer what they once were. They're being flooded by Normals. Or People who Don't Speak my Language. または私のアルファベットを使用しない人。
It's becoming like ... birdland.
Or worse: Facebook.
So, here's a thought for you: Facebook was once literally Harvard.

Remember, remember, the Eternal September.
(And yes, if there's a discussion, and I'm aware of though haven't yet signed up for the mailing list, I'll join that.)
Old-school OSocial admins have likely been around the block a few times, though I'll caution /them/ that this isn't the scale they're used to.
And there's a body of research and specialists now with literature.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
