After a small discussion this morning (mastodon.social/@dansup/101865), we're adding support for the `commentsEnabled` field, which is now in both @pixelfed and .

This will land in our next release, v0.9

As this new field been discussed by #ActivityPub contributors? Has the spec well written and reviewed? Has all security aspects been considered?
I don't think so...
It appears that this field is wrongly designed: if an #ActivityPub server doesn't understand that (currently) proprietary field, it would allows comments. Useless, and kind of confusing for the initial user...

@malendur It's meant to improve usability -- that's it.

Today if an authoring platform doesn't allow comments on a post, there's no way to communicate it. Since 3 platforms support this function, we've gone ahead with the solution we have today.
