earthquakes 

wikinews's top story right now is four paragraphs about an earthquake from a week ago off the coast of China that has not done any damage. the earthquakes from yesterday that have affected millions are nowhere to be seen. I love neutral

thinkin about that news aggregator i found years ago that was like, ohhggg the news is so partisan nowadays. so much politics. i will only show the news from wikinews, that way i know it is neutral and objective

i mean as a mod when i see someone remote acting like a shit, the first things i want to know are
- is this a mod? if so this is a bigger deal
- if not, who are their mods
so far finding this out involves clicking thru to the remote instance myself, looking at an about page, etc

it's already pretty janky that /api/v1/instance can only show one person, but it's also a mastodon thing, not a standard

there just needs to be a way to point at an AP collection from nodeinfo or whatever saying "these are our staff"
