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.

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.
