of course, there are parts of doing any networked thing that require collaboration and that's GOOD. it just isn't often that projects encourage many alternate clients and server to be made.

i'm most interested in systems that are meant to stay small enough for folks to go build their own clients and servers easily and without big teams.

or maybe: instead of encrypting the transport, we make a habit of sharing encrypted files.

i guess another question is, do we need networking to be secure? or maybe should private messages be delivered another way?

fighting spam and illegal/unethical content is much easier if you have explicit control over who you accept messages from.
[7 days ago]
the spam problem can't be solved efficiently by maintaining extensive deny lists. the only scalable way to handle spam is with allow lists and trust networks.
