An interesting experiment would be an invite-only instance where every user added is also an admin of that instance.

It would be a real world example of the idea of constructing a system where the rules stick only so long as no other person chooses to veto them. No coalitions, no tyranny by majority, just a pure consensus-driven approach.

Opening a mirror instance up for anyone to join would be an excellent control test!

My hypothesis is you'd get these results:

Invite-only would work well to begin with, but then there would be a cacade of users banning each other for banning someone else they liked! 😂

Open-to-the-world would be an example of anarchism in action. It would either be wildly successful or a complete & utter failure. It really could go either way 🤷‍♂️


@bobstechsite I've been thinking about doing this for a while now. I already have the server and the domain. All I have to figure out now is how to install Pleroma. 🙂​
