Great read about the recent Mastodon CVE (which could allow taking over and forging content for remote accounts).

Iโ€™m quoting a bit here about open source:

how people seem to only care for the 'gratis' of free software, and seldom the 'libre', and millions of users leaning on the work of primarily a couple developers, assuming they have the attentiveness to catch every mistake themselves alone

There arenโ€™t enough funded people - both teams and individuals - working on Fediverse software, and both the users and the admins seem averse to paying for it.
