mutuals only privacy level whennn
@er1n this would be nice for a fork to have I think. similar to local only posting
@er1n tbh I do give credence to the argument that adding too many levels to Mastodon proper makes it confusing for new users
@restioson i think the main issue with it is honestly the problem of "x is mutual to you" changing over time, although we already have that problem with priv posts; we've just ignored it as much as possible
@er1n hmm what do you mean? I don't quite understand I'm afraid
@restioson post is made when you, "@me", are mutual to "@friend". you and @friend become not-friends, and are no longer mutuals. their server must understand this and hide those past posts
@restioson this is similar to how someone softblocking you when you follow them should behave wrt priv posts but i'm not actually sure that it does? that's what i said abt this being a blind spot
@er1n ah okay, I see what you mean. Is it also similar to just blocking someone in general immediately hiding all their posts?
@restioson yeah. and how it doesn't really work right commutatively
@restioson also this is related to "you follow @friend. you can't see private posts that they made in the past, for some reason? but you can see them if you boost them"
@er1n I would probably post a lot more with that one
