I wonder why everybody is ranting that E-Mail has become so centralised. Yes, yes, you have to care about some things (security of your host, mail signing and policy checking, spam blocking, ...) to run your own e-mail server, but you *can* do it.
Why is this step necessary? chaos.social might not be the server where you are registered, so we need to redirect you to your home server first.
