    For people like him free speech means everyone should listen to shit I say and not call me out on it or have me face any consequences.

    Elon Musk has lived his entire life believing he should be able to do whatever he likes and thinking the rules don't apply to him.

    Mastodon has over 1 million 2 million active users and rising so I don't get what you mean by that? Will it be ever as big as Twitter? Probably not. Is it a better alternative to Twitter? Definitively. You can choose to rely on the goodwill of strangers (or people you know if they run an instance) or the psychotic mind salad of a narcissistic billionaire.

    Or you can just quit using social media all together.

    Those strangers have built a platform with scalability issues so bad that each new instance increases Mastodon's tendency to be a DDoS platform. They've also known about it for 5 years and done nothing about it.

    The problem Hel Oween pointed out is a problem with Mastodons scalability, but it isn't as serious as to call it a "DDoS platform". < 10.000 requests doesn't constitute a denial of service attack unless you run the website on a 512MB RAM raspberry PI. And it is easily mitigated by using a CDN. It would be even better if Mastodon respected robots.txt to exclude these requests in the first place, but this is blowing the problem a bit out of proportion (without denying it's a problem).

    I don't see why anyone would want there to be a single Twitter replacement.

    Anyone who wasn't someone who should be put in a bag and drowned, I mean.

    That being said, bad as it was, worse as it has become, Twitter isn't the real enemy. Facebook delenda est.

    Why shouldn't you be running a CDN on every little website when it's free and takes 5 minutes to set up?

    "Stampede problem" lol

    Also I am not saying you should run this on every little website since running a "little" mastadon instance, it's unlikely you will get someone famous with tens of thousands of followers where they posting a link would make this a problem. Having 200 people on the instance with a few houndred followers each this "ddos" will never creep up anyway.

    Not how what works, network effect or multiple services? I'm not talking about mastodon.
