I recently had the problem that content wasn’t federated too at and

In the past there was a similar issue where one instance had too few workers allocated to “pushing” the changes to other instances, so maybe an instance specific problem?

EDIT: maybe also just overloaded because of the new members from the kuketzblog community?

I think it is good that Lemmy does not show the total score which, I believe, reduces this effect a little bit.

A somewhat related behaviour is voting based on the score, e.g. downvoting a deeply negative comment. I fell for this too and I am so glad that you can disable the displaying of the score so that the only thing that matters is content.

Just a few lines below your quote on Wikipedia there is a possible answer:

During subsequent years, the group was generally vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed that the Illuminati continued underground and were responsible for the French Revolution.

Elites being afraid of change that would threaten their power. So they make up propaganda to discredit their enemies.

Afaik only text is replicated and images are only hosted at the server (more specifically the pictrs instance) where it was uploaded. However, I don’t know about the legal implications of linking to possibly illegal content.

ForgeFed, Forgefriends, Forgeflux, Gitea federation, Vervis, Pagure, the Friendly Forge Format, and so on.

Wow, impressive that there are already so many initiatives I never heard of.

I don’t even think it would be too bad to mix it on a server since users have the possibilities to block whole communities (in contrast to servers which can only be done by admins for all users). Though I find your concern regarding moderation relatable. Maybe a feature for the admin panel would be nice where you can specify comminities/servers that are not shown in the All timeline or where all posts are marked as NSFW by default (if there is not such a feature yet)

we had to remove the Bitwarden instance for the time being, to review the flood of responses coming in to us from the community regarding information about the purpose behind Lemmy via the creators

What the heck? It’s free software and a specific detail about free software is that it may be used for any purpose regardless of the authors ideas. That’s some serious fucked up witch hunt.

Chicken or the egg problem. Many people want a lot of (quality) content and diverse content comes from many people.

At the bottom of the guide in the docs all supported formatting options are shown :)

Seems like Qwant indexes lemmy

The robots.txt permits crawling too, so I’d guess yes.

The problem is not the account, but the mandatory phone number verification

Yes, it is. At least from the perspective of normal users.

The reason for WhatsApp (or Telegram or iMessage) becoming as big as it is was the convenience (later the network effect, of course, too) of just entering your phone number and then it just works™. No server selection, no password to remember, totally hassle free—that is the argument I get to hear very often.

And honestly, I have no idea, how we could provide a similar conveniance that is fool proof and secure and private.

after a deserved backlash from the Lemmy community

You misspelled lemmygrad.

If you think about moving, maybe you should rather look at gitea (which works on federation) and (which is using the former one and is run by a non profit org).
