@realcaseyrollins @rysiek The main item I can think of -- when big corporations get involved in an open spec, they expect, nay demand, to be given an overly large seat at the table. Look at how any of the w3c specs have gone with corporate involvement. It will be twisted and the implementation details designed around their needs and use cases. The hobbyist running a couple hundred user instance will have no seat at that table. And if no seat is given to FB and Twitter they'll just use their oversized influence to ignore the spec and do as they will anyways.
@lordbowlich @rysiek Specs get ignored anyways tho; #Misskey, #Gab, (and to a lesser degree #Pleroma and vanilla #Mastodon) all have different, incompatible feature, or react differently than each other.
anti-semitism, death threats, gab
