Re: %ocvijHApX

@corlock Just hurt my ankle two days ago! I was running and then tread with the side of the foot and then fell 🤕.

According to the med advice the internet (which is always the best obvs 😉), icing mostly reduces the pain and the swelling, but doesn't actually help the healing process in any substantial way. And the pain and swelling are actually a good thing, because the swelling stabilises this joint and prevents it from moving, while the pain makes you not putting weight on the foot, which would further impair healing.

This was the advice on two or three places on google page one, so it's not completely far-fetched I guess?

@corlock

If I understand your proposal correctly, this won’t work effectively. The first thing people do when they see a malicious user today is @mention that user, or link back to threads from that user as part of a debugging experience. I don’t know how this could be differentiated from authentic engagement.

Well, you could just look at cipherlinks to their log. For example look at the number of message that link their message divided by the length of their log. We're talking about flooding here, so they've probably posted a lot of messages (say 2000), and 20 people responding to a post of them won't make much of a difference (1% interaction is not much).

However, I think the approach is flawed for another reason.

@cblgh

We have someone here who was using Scuttlebutt on their own, as a private social network basically, until they accidentally connected to the big swarm over wifi. This also carried over pub info so they're still here!

Take this idea further, what if there is another network we just don't know about, and they one of us meets them and follows one of them. Suddenly the networks will merge, and it will be more like 1M messages - and the only interaction there is from a "trusted peer" (which basically means "one of us", "someone from our network") is 1 follow message. So we're down to 0.0001% interaction. I don't think it's possible to tell whether these are real people or a swarm of Sybils.

But these are extreme examples. I think it's probably possible to come up with a few rules that help us in the average case.

@tumwm

I suggested document instead of post because this probably isn't about writing discussion posts but articles. I a discussion branch with christian and soapdog we figured out that at least soapdog is not interested in at-json forum posts and found it would probably be more interesting for blog posts.

@mix The thread is titled "replacing markdown" so I thought you were up to changing what is currently posts.
