Anti-abuse tools which rely on centralized, wholesale surveillance, particularly when such a mechanism is the primary revenue model of that centralized system, can only get more and more abusive to users over time.

That's the fundamental problem.

The federated social web, as it exists, points at a *portion* of the solution. But not enough. In many ways, it has borrowed centralized assumptions.

That's why I've been in research mode with @spritelyproject. I think we now have the answers.

But it's one thing to have the answers. It's another thing for people to understand them.

This requires two things: good explanations, and to be able to get people to experience the solutions themselves.
