That being said... I wish I could see when someone had blocked me, because while I might continue to read their posts, I wouldn't bother commenting, or otherwise attempting to engage them in conversation.
Which, aside from "feed" accounts like RSS feeds or news feeds, is pretty much the primary reason why I participate in social media: to engage with interesting people. So knowing whether they're not responding because they aren't seeing my comments, or because they're seeing them and actively ignoring them, or because they're seeing them and just choosing not to respond, would be useful information for me, and potentially beneficial for them.
Like I said, I get it. This is just me musing.

It seems that the choice of which "facet" of the Federation (Diaspora, Friendica, Hubzilla, Mastodon, etc.) one inhabits depends mostly on the features available in that particular instantiation. Some of that might depend on the culture of the individual node -- I admit that I've almost completely ignored the "Local Community" functionality -- but with the ability to connect with anyone anywhere in the overall Fed, that seems like a secondary concern at best.
Friendica seems to have some solid advantages over Diaspora, namely:
- Forums (equivalent to G+ Communities)
- The ability to edit posts and comments
- Threaded comments
- The ability to talk to more other platforms
So, for Diaspora users: why are you using Diaspora? What's "better" about that platform than Friendica that I'm missing? Thanks!
