@cdevroe In comparison to the awful Get Satisfaction situation, the only way an outside blog ends up on Micro.blog is if a Micro.blog member decides to seek out and subscribe to the outside blog via M.b, and even then the blog only shows up in that member’s timeline, just like a traditional RSS reader. I think that’s a significant enough set of differences that will enable Micro.blog to end up avoiding the ire of site owners…

@cdevroe Looks like I was wrong, as posts from my blog are showing up in the Micro Monday Discover section and other tagmoji sections (twice!), even though I’m sure no-one here is following it instead of me…. That seems like an unwanted interaction, especially since I believe Mastodon users are filtered out of Discover.

@smokey You're likely right. Also, I trust @manton and team to be far more mindful of their decisions than GS ever was.

@smokey @cdevroe I've removed the duplicates. This problem will go away when we start linking the domain name "usernames" with the primary Micro.blog account, if it's already a verified site that Micro.blog knows about.

@manton That'll be a nice feature. Cool.
