Correction: the original version stated that the Mostr.pub bridge was used for a spam wave on Bluesky. This is incorrect, a different bridge between Nostr and the fediverse, momostr.pink, was used. Mostr.pub creator Alex Gleason explains that the Mostr.pub bridge has anti-spam filtering that would have prevented such as spam attack.

Small note: if you check feeds like 'Discovery' and wonder what the hell I'm talking about with all these Japanese posts: make sure that all languages are checked in your settings. AFAIK if you are not Japanese it is most likely turned off by default, making it that you don't see posts in Japanese.
