Hrm. Do Mastodon instances forward delete activities for other instances? Because I'm getting a flood of "type":"Delete" - messages from cybre.space for an actor that's somewhere else?
It's apparently always the same message though. No idea what that's about (ran a trace on the traffic between my reverse proxy and mastodon).
Any idea @chr maybe?
Excellent. I post this, and the flood stops.
@galaxis I think there may be a few "gotchyas" currently in ActivityPub. At most it's just spam to your server.
@indirection I first assumed that someone was maybe expiring their old toots with some tool - but at least in the sample I have been looking at, it's always been exactly the same delete message for the same object id, repeated over and over.
@galaxis that's...extremely weird. i don't know why this would be happening. please let me know if it continues
@galaxis sure enough, i did. kicked it over and restarted, how's it looking now?
@chr Requests with the old user agent are gone.
Not going to have the time to look at details until later tonight, though.
