Recent events surrounding social media have made many people think about leaving the currently dominant platforms. If you are looking for alternatives, you'll inevitably come across the term 'Fediverse'. But what is the Fediverse and why should you use it?
In this first in a series of FAQs, I'll try to answer questions that a total beginner might have. In later installments, I'll answer more questions about the technical details and about Pleroma specifics.
I hope this will help you along on your way to the Fediverse!

Still, there is one part of Pleroma that is wasteful to the extreme...
So where did we go wrong? I think the problem goes way back. We made a deal with the Devil when we accepted free-form HTML into our systems. The best solution is to not make this mistake anymore, and go back to the future to a better alternative.
And that's why, today, I'm announcing Gopher support for Pleroma!
