Since everyone's focused their attention here again, maybe someone can help explain why folks move their account across instances? Is it usually social (e.g. disagreement with federation/moderation policies)? Or technical (scalability)?

I like the idea conceptually, but the real-world downsides of having to rebuild your followers feels like a pretty significant practical barrier.


@mattdsteele you don't have to rebuild your followers anymore
