>that's only because when a site is de facto viewed as a single huge community then people want to control dialog of that community
Thats not what im talking about and ive never even noticed that happen on big sites as much as small sites. Big sites are inherently evil because they centralize administrative power in the hands of the operator of that site, ie the corporation. This keeps happening and people come to think there is no internet outside of twitter, facebook, instagram, etc., and that if something is silenced on these platforms, it may as well not even exist, they can feed almost everyones data to advertisers and governments, etc etc.
and as said before, you cant compete with people whos goal is to make a profit. anything you make with the intention of not being an asshole, they'll buy from you and be assholes, or copy and shill their copy a trillion times harder then be assholes. anything you decentralize, theyll buy and centralize or copy and centralize and shill their copy a trillion times harder.

In a way, we already have this. Usenet, again, but lets say you want it to be the web:
RSS, Atom, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT
>single little "control center"
Try checking out using feeds in Thunderbird and in Firefox, both. They behave differently, but both support RSS and Atom. Thus, you could pick whichever layout you prefer. For example, I've used it to follow webcomics, and not only that, the comments sections for multiple webcomic pages. It really, truly works.
>dumbest post I've ever made
It isn't, and I'm glad I read your post. I wouldn't have thought of Atom/HTTP-based textboards without you. It's a beautiful idea.
