I've got a question that I'm sure someone beside you could answer if they see it - feel free, that someone.
What's a stamp? I mean, not metaphorically, but what's the payment Bob puts on his message.
@emsenn I believe a postage stamp is meant.
@cwebber has discussed in the past systems to charge for message delivery. See http://dustycloud.org/blog/possible-distributed-anti-abuse/
Not getting specific yet. There's just the principle involved that the burden should be on the sender to get unsolicited messages delivered. There may or may not be a micro transaction currency involved. If not, Bob needs more CPU time or other resource to send. This prevents junk messages from overwhelming the system, hopefully
@yaaps @emsenn @astraluma @skarabrae See more here https://octodon.social/@cwebber/102465707083348407 but yes you are all generally on the right track
