@hansw I understand the concern, and personally hate spammers a lot too.

We try to strike for a balance between out of the box utility and respects for people's desire to stay out of the spotlight, and it indeed has been hard.

If we search pixelfed + a username on Google, we'd find many results. It wouldn't be fair for Google to grab all the search results without opt in while a smaller niche focused projects has to knock on doors right?

Not saying that defaulting to opt-out is right, but just want some extra leniency on our way to do something good to this community.
