You should *always* discuss with the community before opening *any*
service under the name of LibreOffice or TDF. When you engage the
responsibility of the whole project a second thought is *always* needed.
After, like Mastodon, it's too late and damages are done to the community.

For no reason? do you think that engaging the project without notifying
the list for a second look is something that could be called quibbling?

And spending time to correct what you did wrong take also a lot of time,
so please consult the community before sending blogs or subscribing the
project to services. We could avoid a lot of work correcting the bad
effects afterwards.
