I think Mastodon should also copy twitter's move of separating "who is in this reply to?" into metadata rather that all of the @ mention handle stuff. Especially since the handles get long with the server domain in there. It's unwieldy and unfriendly.

And it's weird. Like, if you're having a normal conversation with someone and you say their name first every time you speak, that's be odd. And if you both do it back and forth.....?


Wait, what happens if I reply and delete your handle?

Ok, it seems to know to show that that was a reply. So... why is the app putting the handle there as the default text? Is it _just_ to annoy me? :)

Still seems to work. It's still a thread. Hope not being offensive by not "saying" your name before replying to you :P
