I don't know why people get all excited by federation, what benefits do you actually get? (Friendly question, see this)
I'm personally more interested in some fun subraddle where posts and comment have no word limits than a federated instance.
When federated, the system works with less hierarchy and less trust in the host, since there are multiple ones.
What kind of thing would unlimited words be useful for?
Oh, I finally found the right word: sandbox.
I said as an "experiment", maybe some programming/books forum where quoting a lot of stuff may take space?
There isn't one individual where you place all trust (the host) because if one sucks, you can always move onto another without entirely abandoning everything.
