Ah, Mediacom. Where you can be told "no we don't do this" UNTIL you give them the traceroute, then they're like "oh okay I'll create a ticket for the NOC to look at."
I expect higher quality from Mediacom *Business* than to tell me "We don't block port 113, I don't know what to tell you" as I'm staring right at Liberal staff telling me IDENT is failing, and my firewall showing 0 packets off a pcap.
I love ISPs.

f-droid's de facto complete lack of any sort of malware is literally more important than any theoretical concern imo
is it possible to sneak malware in if you really tried? yes
is there malware? no absolutely not
you go on google play and download a flashlight app and the top 20 results are all malware lol
sure f-droid has some pretty shit apps but none of them will infect your phone, and to be fair f-droid also has a handful of extremely high quality apps that you would have trouble finding otherwise
so idk, for the average user f-droid is just de facto higher quality apps, and confers more security just by being a little more tightly controlled by forcing apps to be open source (malware people will typically not want to make their shit open source. that's usually how it works)
The IDEA is that @tekdmn_blog will be watching my RSS and tooting out the summary, a link, and some hashtags. Anything it says it'll check every ~5 minutes to see who's replied, and start meddling with the Commento database. So I can't do it bidirectionally, but I think it's good enough.
I can also pull your current avatar picture... though I'd have to do a tiny bit of work to keep the name and avatar up to date. That would probably be a separate task from the main "check Mastodon and update" loop.
So here's how I think I can merge Mastodon and Commento:
Mastodon posts are HTML. So I need to do a LITTLE stripping (removing, say, @ mention links), but I can drop your text straight in, user name is, say "Teknikal_Domain (from the Fediverse)" and that's a link to your account profile. Comment text would also probably have a link to the original post at the bottom of it.
Favorites become Commento votes. Only public posts get counted. And I MIGHT be able to make CWs work as well.
