OStatus uses "@chrismdp@rstat.us nice post!" style-messages.

This kind of works. Ideally I'd like to drop the leading @ but I guess that'll be hard to do.

And I would say that it's totally up to any OStatus client to improve on that in their UI if they want to. Mobile phones and e-mail clients rarely uses the raw numbers and e-mail addresses in their UI:s but instead uses data from eg. an address book to make it more userfriendly.

Gotta go with bang paths.


That would feel like inventing UUCP again.
