Thinking it would be nice if #mastodon had a room / topic / channel metaphore. I've seen some usage of CW to let people decide if a particular topic is something they want to think about at that moment, isn't that really a channel in disguise ?

Maybe some servers want to allow free speech but also give people the choice of whether they want to wade into that bog. The ability to federate on a per-channel basis would save server ops from the block-or-be-blocked dilemma.

Has this been discussed ?


@cjd Wouldn't it be better to have maintained lists of users or hashtags. Each user could individually subscribe to the list to either block everything on the list, or specifically view the posts under it, depending on what they want. The "mods" in this case would be the list maintainers.
