The Ryzen 5 3600 is a staggering 45% faster than the 2 year old R5 1600 and even beats the 8 core R7 1800X. Oh, and it beats the Intel 8700K and 9600K too.
I need to keep telling myself my first gen Ryzen 7 is fine...

Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.
Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).
