Masto meta; urgent Show more
The Direct Messages on Masto are broken in a way that is potentially dangerous
It has happened more than once that someone has tried to contact me in my admin persona about another user using a "Direct" privacy toot
And they try to talk *about* the other person
But Masto helpfully auto-fills their name, so now they're *in* the conversation
And suddenly someone who absolutely should NOT be in a private conversation is added by accident
@bgcarlisleAgain, wishing for true DMs (including group DMs) with integrated xmpp instead of this "restricted distribution" posts.
One of the first Mastodon instances, there is no specific topic we're into, just enjoy your time!
