@socrates maybe you've addressed this before so sorry if I've missed it, do DOI links go against the no shortened links clause of the community standards?
There's still the issue of target obfuscation
Maybe a good policy would be to say that if one uses a DOI link, to clearly describe the destination in a manner that is human-readable (i.e. title, author, journal name, etc.), on pain of having the post deleted
And then if there's ever "DOI-gate," we change the policy
Maybe in all of our spare time (hahaha) we could teach masto to use the free CrossRef API to look up a DOI and provide the summary automatically? Small instances should be able to play nice at least.
