(#<ie6ckya gemini://xj-ix.luxe/bin/twtxt/cgi?t=ie6ckya>) yup, that's why i'm writing my own client and eventually my own server ^^
[6.8 months ago]
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.
[6.8 months ago]
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.
[6.9 months ago]
i guess another question is, do we need networking to be secure? or maybe should private messages be delivered another way?
[6.9 months ago]
fighting spam and illegal/unethical content is much easier if you have explicit control over who you accept messages from.
[6.9 months 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.
