You know, as much as I love Pleroma, one has to wonder: Why do we have two microblogging services? What is the big difference between them? Sure Pleroma has more features and is more lightweight, but it's still a microblogging platform.

I know the most likely answer is "because we can" but still.

@icedquinn This is unfair to the Mastodon. Mastodon is software, just like Pleroma. Quality of your experience will depend on the instance you pick.

@person if you want to seriouspost then its because mastodon has an extremely thicc software stack and someone thought they could make it smaller which turned out to be true.

i'm sure if it was written in nim it would be even faster but the BEAM platform has some pretty serious advantages (which i don't think pleroma exploits but they're there.)

@icedquinn I guess that's true :D Sorry for not getting the sarcasm earlier, I don't always get it :)
