I'm disappointment in peer tube. You can correct me, but i think its a federated version of youtube. My beef is that its the wild west. I recently clicked on a vid, and it was a bunch of people stabbing a woman to death. If I could erase that from my mind, i would. wtf is wrong with people? Anyway, think im going to steer clear of peer tube. It seems lawless.
