here's my mastodon export data viewer again, since my personal instance is being retired and I needed a way to view the exported data:

@SuricrasiaOnline I should really put up my "dump all the activitypub entities that can be found on an instance" code somewhere that means it won't be instantly used for scraping the fediverse

it's incredibly useful for theoretically loading it into another instance as incoming posts, and a theoretical gossip mode for getting posts from dead instances that your neighboring instances might have

the biggest issues is ethics, since you don't have a good way to delete your data if the instance is gone, which is also why I haven't done any of this
