I love the idea of having lots of ActivityPub implementations to serve various niches:

- Twitter-esque (Mastodon)
- Facebook-esque (Aardwolf)
- YouTube-esque (PeerTube)

it's just spewing control chars in my terminal without care

I guess i'll reinstall later anyways

So @batjan just accidentally tried Reddit's web redesign.

This has cemented my idea that no web should ever be redesigned.
