People were worried when Mastodon went from 20,000 to 500,000 people too. I don't see why you would think 1mil -> 2mil to be any different. I really don't agree with the comments that suggest that Mastodon shouldn't grow.

@Gargron Maybe it's not accurate to say that people don't want Mastodon to grow. Maybe it's more that they don't want it to grow in the direction that Twitter did it.
In my case, I wouldn't want it to grow in the direction of becoming yet another Nazi fest.

There's plenty of communities that we should reach out to that should be welcomed.

Giving a platform to nazis in the name of free speech and inclusion is the US centrist fallacy that we shouldn't fall for.

@h @Gargron
The fediverse has nazi hives already, some running mastodon (though most are not because of the major right-wing migrations being before mastodon existed). They're mostly defederated from this end of the fediverse, and circlejerk in their own corner.
