Masto meta; urgent
The Direct Messages on Masto are broken in a way that is potentially dangerous
It has happened more than once that someone has tried to contact me in my admin persona about another user using a "Direct" privacy toot
And they try to talk *about* the other person
But Masto helpfully auto-fills their name, so now they're *in* the conversation
And suddenly someone who absolutely should NOT be in a private conversation is added by accident
@bgcarlisle that's just how it works though? DM is just a regular conversation, limited to people you mention and you. It's like being surprised someone you CC in your email gets a copy
