Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable. I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?
@Sylvhem Not only bots. I take issue with people having conversations on public timelines.
I think original posts should be made public, if wanted. Any comments on this post should be unlisted by default - unless manually changed to public. This would reduce noise in the federated timeline and improve discoverability for everyone.
@Jakobiner@Sylvhem I think that I’m advanced computer user but this post shows that I haven’t been aware of such problem. I think that it should be described better in apps. For example #metatext client doesn’t have default visibility settings divided into new and reply posts.
