FYI, the recent call by some folks for Eugen to step down from Mastodon, is an echo of sentiments years ago. Back then, they forked the codebase (Florence: github.com/florence-social/mas) and pursued an open-governance model.

I think Florence has since fizzled out, but it was at least a real and earnest pursuit of a Mastodon fork -- which is the way to turn those sorts of demands into real, tangible action.

The core problem is, people are more likely to simply leave Fedi than migrate to a fork.

@cj I entirely missed the current drama. What is it now?
