I do have a question... I'm following a couple of tags (Linux & Politics), and I can see public posts with those tags. I've set the server up with a relay. However, I only see posts from other Friendica instances. Nothing from Diaspora, for instance. I've very recently switched the relay from the default to relay.iliketoast.net, so I guess I'll see if that helps. But I think I must be missing something.
I have a diaspora instance up as well, and I can see posts from Friendica there.
