@adasauce i was astounded to learn there's no garbage collection process for dealing with them
@adasauce someone's gonna buy an obscure domain name that happened to belong to a masto instance years ago and find themselves bombarded by the federated timeline's collective traffic, a force tantamount to a distributed attack.
@garbados i started issuing domain blocks for a while as a stopgap, but it was a huge pain and started adding a bunch of load going through and deleting local content and media.
gave up after a while
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
