Okay, could anybody please explain to me why do we need Yet Another 
Social Network Protocol?

Instead of focusing on a bikeshedding issue[1] (as I believe the 
licensing for a new and still unused potentially libre social network 
is one indeed), I really do think we should rather focus on the big 
picture. And that is:

There is not libre, decentralized, federated social network that is 
actually a threat to walled gardens.

And here's why:
1. network effect
2. fragmentation on the libre side of things

ad.1.) that's something we can fight (as suggested in the other 
thread), once we tackle 2.

ad.2.) the first thing we can do to tackle this is agreeing on a 
single protocol.
