The issue with Lemmy

for something built around pubsub, we’re surprised lemmy floods mastodon instances with unsupported objects, as opposed to splitting mastodon-irrelevant objects into separate streams and letting instances opt-in to the appropriate streams as needed.

oh well. guess we’re just stuck with it now, since any change would break all old versions of lemmy.

Are mbin & PieFed demonstrating a better practice for what your describe?

haven’t looked into them. if they have fully-featured federation with lemmy, then they’re probably no better.

that’s part of the problem really, if you wanna be compatible with lemmy you have to do everything lemmy does, including broadcast everything that happens on a community, even if the instance you’re sending it to doesn’t actually support it.
