@pixelfork privacy, analytics, ads, pro subscriptions. I don't see anything to back up these claims (and I do follow the pixelfed feeds and the dev).
I know about federation not being ready yet, but there were features that had to be finished as dependency before.
Please take this as an observation from outside: In its current form, this blog post reads like a smear campaign, just because someone does not agree with the priorities of someone else.
@nipos Thanks for the answer. What you describe has gone wrong too often in commercial hands, I give you that, but I still would give the future pixelfed admins some leeway to do it better. Tools like the pro feature can still be handled by a pixelfed instance admin like you describe for peertube.
And I don't see you as trolls, I wanted to tell you how the original blog post sounds and give you the hint that you might want to improve on it. Incorporating that answer might be a good start.
@nipos Furthermore, I'd rather see you working alongside pixelfed, to cherrypick features from each other.
You can do better like the original project? By all means, do it. But, please, try not to be petty about it, at least not publicly. This only poisons the athmosphere around _both_ projects. You have to criticize something? By all means, do it. But, please, choose your words and claims wisely and back them up with sources.
