"The startling inefficiencies involved in how Mastodon distributes content have been on my mind for a long time."

This article by @aral is excellent. It's painful to read about all the job creation, sidekiq queues, artificial limits, delays, and costs involved with making a few thousand POST's to distribute a toot, being used to scanners like masscan or nmap blasting millions of requests per second with little memory/CPU.
