My RSS and microformats aggregators also download a whole bunch of text—things I read—and my blog posts—things I write—never get deleted either, but these services grow at nowhere near the rate an extremely tiny Mastodon instance does. Should we ... not cache everything forever? (Try and create slightly less gigantic Docker images?) *exports toots and followers* *drops database* *starts over*
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
