“It’s about doing the one little thing you can do, even if it’s useless: planting seeds in the midst of the apocalypse, spitting on a wildfire, bailing out the ocean with a bucket. Individual action is almost always pointless. Hope and strength comes from our bonds with each other, from the actions we take as a community, holding hands in the dark.” festive.ninja/one-atom-of-just

@ashfurrow hi! just a heads up, i may have discovered a bug: searching for "@xyz" (include double quotes) 500s. can replace xyz with anything; doesn't need to be an existing user.

i don't know if this is a misconfiguration, or a bug in your fork, or in upstream, or just transient, so i figured i'd nudge you before i filed a github issue anywhere.

thanks for running this instance! :hugops:

Interesting unintended consequence of federation: when you post a link, >1k mastodon nodes all fetch it at the same time to render a link preview, which results in a small DDoS.
