"I've witnessed a switch, this was one of the most intense thing I've experienced."
It's as if people never had the experience of talking with someone on the phone and having a friend in the background hoping over and taking the receiver mid convo to say hi.
I say this sincerely, and as someone who appreciates and develops open source software: one advantage to making your social media platform closed source is that it's not immediately overrun with people posting about free open source software.
It honestly might be a better move to start closed source, grow your user base, and *then* make it open source so the FLOSS nerds you attract can't overwhelm the platform

If and when the mastodon surge happens, I think admins need to do more to set expectations on how blocking works. Reminding users that they can personally block instances and users. Help to ensure that user problems do not become “instance vs instance”. Admins have a responsibility to their users and the wider community, and should try to avoid instance blocks for dispute resolution unless it involves Prohibited Content. Learn from failed instances.
