i saw a toot about it elsewhere but i can’t find it so: basically don’t trust mastodon for things you want to stay Actually Private. instance admins can read DMs, and instance admins can read the private posts of anyone their users follow. this is sort of inherent to the current architecture. and for all twitter’s sins, i trust the admins to not leak random people’s DMs more than i trust every instance admin ever.

Yeah, I was talking about this on Twitter, how you have to completely trust your instance admin to not read, mess with, or completely drop the ball with your posts.

Even if you run your own instance, hope you don't get hacked, you don't screw up an upgrade, or even just get bored with the whole thing and decide to stop paying for it
