so, we were getting spam on our prosody xmpp. it never happened before, and i wonder where the spammers get our jids from. may it be they were able to scan diaspora pages and get the jid’s from there?

still, so i tried to configure mod_firewall and it wasn’t that easy, i just blocked everything. (: then i used the block-spam.pfw script from the mod_firewall, and tried to send me a message from other server’s users that is not in my roster. did not help.

so eventually mod_block_strangers helped me, and i believe i won’t get spam anytime soon.

this answer to @{Dennis Schubert; denschub@pod.geraspora.de} post seems reasonable.

it is indeed seems possible to map some subset of activitypub to the current diaspora functionality.

moreover that ruby libraries for ap already exists, there needs to be work done on integration, which is not easy, of course, but i think necessary - because otherwise diaspora stays isolated from the rest of federated world.

i think we have to try to create a social demand for this. if there is a demand, these functionality is more likely to be implemented - whether by diaspora team or by the fork.

well, the main problem is, that we have lack of developers, which is because diaspora is not that popular, and it is already a miracle that we have diaspora, and we have the existing team.

the problem with #fediverse and #diaspora is that when you get a new instance/pod, then the new user of that instance, if they did not have other fediverse presence before, don’t see anyone, and have limited means to discover/find other people: your new instance is not aware of them.

solution often used: create a bot and follow a lot of people from different instances, so that new users have some content. but may be the user would follow someone else, than the bot followed
