@vincent @paulrobertlloyd Usually I'd agree — maybe not so much with the doom but on some days yeah lol — but it seems to be that the structure of federated systems (self-servers are just like having your own blog, for example) makes it difficult for those features to create bad incentives.

Also, two other things help to disincentivise the bad things: no algorithm + open source. Without addiction-based capturing of attention as a business model there aren't many motivations to encourage the worst behaviour, if any at all.
