    You’re asking them to set up and maintain another platform for you to … Checks notes… use their FOSS project? Not contribute to development, just…use? That does not seem worth their time. Certainly sounds demanding to step into a project and tell them to do things differently otherwise you won’t honour them with your presence

      I think it’s safe to assume they created a FOSS project, as well as all of the associated social platforms, for people to use. I don’t think it’s unrealistic to request that they make a single platform available that doesn’t exploit their users for profit.

      Certainly sounds demanding

      That’s because you have a fundamental misconception regarding the difference between asking a question and making a demand. Here’s a hint: one has a “question mark”.
