Wanting to not influence speech as a company is a great goal.
A great solution to this would be to give seamless and easy way for people to create their own nodes. (self hosted or <10-20 people small community with their own moderation choices) much healthier for decentralization too.
Last I checked, a single company does this, and a frightening number of instances are on same underlying server infrastructures anyway.
Could REALLY use a one click solution that tackle these... #wishlist.
