Deletes on fedi are wild. AFAICS Mastodon tells everyone who you delivered the original toot to "btw this toot is gone" -- and then at least Pleroma tries to get that toot, which results in a 404.
This means our queue gets full trying to deliver "this doesn't exist" notifications, and our web workers get tied up serving 404s.
Distributed systems, eh?
@insom holy shit that's really messed up.
i vote: just nuke our access to federated timeline as a half joke/half serious. that way we are borderline cult hahah
