I still don't understand mastodon permissions.. if you @ someone from a locked account with private posting, they cant see it unless they follow you right?

@carbontwelve @sara I'm not sure actually .. and it could very well be implemented differently in between Mastodon/Pleroma/others. I tried digging through the W3C docs ( to see what could happen but then I got lost.

@sara posts go to whoever is tagged in them, so they can see the post but not the rest of the thread

@sara if their @ is kept in the replies, yes, they should be visible too

@sara this has caused some interesting situations where someone dm'd an admin about a problem with a user, tagged the user, and the user also received the dm
