I'm starting to feel like it's time for distributed callbacks/web mentions/etc again, if only to try to manage some of the spam better and encourage more bloggage or other resources.

Is the right way to do this Fediverse federation, or is there another modern technology for inbound links that people are playing with these days?

What? Already? I just got started with webmention, and now it's ancient history? Oh yeah, right, it's older than 20 minutes, need to update the world again ... sigh.

Not sure we are on the same page, but what if every inbound link was unique and trackable to the entity that fist saw it. Like the link to this post for me would be: https://www.flutterby.com/archives/comments/bWV1b24K-31465.html which has meuon in base64 prepended to the page?

Too busy to blog, but maybe if I stopped lurking on FB. Been enjoying Fosstodon for a geeky stream/community.

I suspect that the tracking mechanism would fall apart fairly quickly, though I'm intrigued by the thought. Mostly I should probably make sure that my RSS feed is actually half-decent (I think it sucks by modern standards) and set up to spider more sites for inbound links.

Format with:

(You should probably use "Text" mode: URLs will be mostly recognized and linked, _underscore quoted_ text is looked up in a glossary, _underscore quoted_ (http://xyz.pdq) becomes a link, without the link in the parenthesis it becomes a <cite> tag. All <cite>ed text will point to the Flutterby knowledge base. Two enters (ie: a blank line) gets you a new paragraph, special treatment for paragraphs that are manually indented or start with "#" (as in "#include" or "#!/usr/bin/perl"), "/* " or ">" (as in a quoted message) or look like lists, or within a paragraph you can use a number of HTML tags:

p, img, br, hr, a, sub, sup, tt, i, b, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, cite, em, strong, code, samp, kbd, pre, blockquote, address, ol, dl, ul, dt, dd, li, dir, menu, table, tr, td, th

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
