@df2rs Theoretically yes. But instance-centred communities are rare ATM. People don’t want to be reduced to just one interest with their presence here.
@df2rs I do it mainly because I think federation still leaves me at the whims and mercy of the instance owner/admin. If they decide to block an instance there’s not much I can do. And vice versa. Having my own single user instance gives me full control and is a step closer to real decentralisation.
@jwildeboer Just forgotten. My 1st steps with mastodon endet in leaving the instance, bec. the owner blocked a lot of content.
But the fediverse doesn't have good tools to do single-user moderation, it works on the assumption that making an instance has a effort-cost.
Moderation is mostly users-granular on your instance, and instance-granular anywhere else.
For this reason I think single-user instances are not sustainable for the mastodon ecosystem.
I'm very happy that I can choose a moderation team (instance) whose principles I agree on.
