Looking to maybe self host my own instance, I’m still learning about the fediverse. If a different instance that I federate with hosts something illegal are there risks to me? Is anything from other instances hosted on my server like a copy of it? Or would I only end up hosting things my users post? I’m paranoid and sorry if this is a silly question.

      I had found an old post which indicates that post thumbnails are cached. So I guess there’s that.

      In case you didn’t see it, the OP of this thread realized they didn’t setup their pictrs API key… so I guess it’s possible to omit that and lemmy should still work. Not sure about the downsides.
