Federation with other systems

Due to legal restrictions, does not federate with some systems.

For example announced Facebook/Meta/Instagram a project P92 to participate with the Fediverse (for example including servers of Mastodon). This company is well known for the violation of the GDPR and is already sued by court for different fines. The last fine was about 1.2 billion €.

And Meta handles hate and fake news in an unsufficent manner. So this server might not federate with all servers out there caused by german and or europe laws.
