Just noting that Twitter now has a reply restriction (even though it's not designed particularly well), while Mastodon still takes the stance that this wouldn't be a good idea, despite the fact that there has been a PR for this for *two years*, and the PR author has faithfully updated the PR to be ready to merge ever since.

@rixx and clearly it is a needed functionality, and a welcome one.

@rixx ich find das auch richtig sinnvoll drüben auf Twitter. Da hat man nicht ständig diese "well actually" Leute in den replies.

@rixx AFAIK the larger concern is that this is hacky to integrate into the current ACL permission approach.
Features like this would integrate far better into a capability-based system for which several proposals are available, but nothing is practically implemented so far, eg gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/bl

@schmittlauch No. The larger concern is "project leadership does not want to have this feature in the Mastodon project".

@rixx Looks like I only follow the discussions that make sense then :\

@rixx @schmittlauch nailed it. gargamel is just gonna do whatever the fuck he wants, investing personal time & energy contributing to #mastodev is completely pointless unless your ideas are in lockstep with his.

@rixx chaos.social migration to :pleroma: when?

@rixx I understand why one would like to have such a feature on Twitter. I have blocked thousand of accounts over there.

But do we need it here? I never had an encounter here where this would have been helpful.

@VictorVenema I definitely had these experiences here, too. People don't stop being people.
