Can you guess when was a link to one of my projects shared here on fedi yesterday?
Seriously, we're getting close to having a true "Fediverse effect" (c.f. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slashdot_effect ).
@Gargron that said, at some point a conversation might need to happen on how to stop fedi from accidentally becoming a distributed denial of service tool.
400 requests in a few short minutes is something that *could* already cause some issues for some poorly configured sites. And fedi is growing.
It is not out of the realm of possibility that in a year or two it grows to a level where posting a link can bring most WordPress sites down for a few minutes.
With deniability ("I was only sharing).
