On the other hands, this means we get fewer authoritarians and more curious people who don't automatically believe what they're told.

Seems like a win, to me.

Why do we need to be huge?

@woozle @ninmi @er1n Yah I think there is an opposite effect of the network effect where the smaller and more out of the way an online community is the more interesting and friendly people it attracts. I mean I want masto to be successful but when I stop and think about it, it already is.

Call it the "niche effect".

Mastodon should be full of niches. The present structure helps this a little, but more could be done. (Wasn't Gargron talking about adding something equivalent to Groups / Communities a few months back? If he's not going to do it, someone should.)
