Masto meta; urgent 

The Direct Messages on Masto are broken in a way that is potentially dangerous

It has happened more than once that someone has tried to contact me in my admin persona about another user using a "Direct" privacy toot

And they try to talk *about* the other person

But Masto helpfully auto-fills their name, so now they're *in* the conversation

And suddenly someone who absolutely should NOT be in a private conversation is added by accident

Masto meta; urgent 

@bgcarlisle oh thaaaaat isn’t good.
