@kev I think what scares many sysadms. like me from opening instance open for registration, is the work associated with moderation, takedown requests and such nontechnical work.
I think more federation could helped by making it really easy install a "family" server, maybe as a app on or as a instance. Moderating a small instance with only your friends and family seems more manageable job.

@MrManor yeah, totally. We have 10k users and moderation is a lot of work!

@kev wow! That is a lot. Have you considered limiting new members by having applicants having to fill some sort of application form? Like What are your Foss background.. ect..

@MrManor we have thought about that, but we don't want there to be a barrier to entry for legit members.
