Trumps "social" network is probably violating at least one FLOSS license. 

Mastodon is licensed AGPL so any source code modifications must be made available under the AGPL. Proprietary source code modifications that are kept from the public are a big no-no.

Well great way to educate the masess.

We can enforce the AGPL and risk people just coming on any instance instead (making more work for admins)

We can just ignore it, and set a bad presidence to others that violate the AGPL

We could nicely advise him to abide by the GPL

We wait till he has a few million users then enforce, which could cause them a lot of issues and probably come here and start problems.

Or we just do nothing so that we can keep the peace, keep his followers OFF the rest of the internet, and make statements that it is easier to ignore a violation than to incur more problems later.
