@ino That makes sense. On day one of my account, I keep searching Federated timeline because mastodon.cloud was quiet. Now I have 500+ toots that say <one minute ago>
@Qantumentangled I think the second way listed is better: 1. Use username.keybase.pub to post a link to mastodon for now and 2. Put that keybase.pub link in bio.
The signed messaged is just an "if you care to verify that I am who I say I am, here is a message to verify".
Completely optional as a temporary solution. Really it was just something to do here while still familiarizing with a new network.
@Qantumentangled Not missing anything. Its really a terrible work-around, and probably shouldn't have received that traffic that it did (my post).
@tariqk Completely understand and respect that! No worries and all, and I look forward to reading it. Just need to get a bit of sleep first.
@tariqk It may not be a constructive remark, but I think its a fair one.
1. I didn't mean for it to be used by everyone. Only devs that verify themselves else on Keybase out of preference.
2. It is a makeshift solution.
3. The internet is a mean place. I'm more nervous when everyone is nice, because it feels like a trap.
I appreciate your honesty, and have bookmarked your post to read tomorrow. (I'm in UTC-5)
