In-reply-to » @prologic It seems to me this distinction is pedantic and mostly at the server level. I have a mastodon account and I have no impression that I am being forced to read things I don't want to read. I follow the people I want to follow, I mute or block the people I don't ever want to see. It's almost exactly the same reading experience as I have on yarn--different people and content obviously, but very similar functionally speaking. I think there are other issues that are of more concern. ohh I see. I think the difference between the two hadn’t quite clicked.

So in that case why wouldn’t it be possible to have an ActivityPub bridge that forced yarn semantics (so to speak)? If someone sent you a reply via ActivityPub you wouldn’t see it on yarn unless you followed their feed?
