Does anyone know what's up with mastodon.cloud? It has apparently been down for several days.
It's quite a large instance, too (55k users). https://web.archive.org/web/20190811221514/https://mastodon.cloud/about/more
@woozle It has since recovered, though without explanation.
@woozle Recovery notice FYI:
@dredmorbius Reading the thread about the outage, I found it interesting what someone said about Japan apparently having a legal system that encourages silence/opacity as a way of avoiding lawsuits.
I'm not sure how that works, but it sounds rather ghastly.
I mean, in theory everything can, regardless. I say stuff anyway because I want to communicate.
The question in my mind is: what is it about the Japanese legal environment (or maybe culture?) that makes companies there particularly prone to opacity?
...and is there anything we can do to mitigate or counter that?
@woozle I left .cloud a long time ago due to the ethereal nature of it actually being there when I wanted to check Mastodon.
