Diaspora private alpha just released

I concur with all Ruth's points here; open source projects don't have "private alphas". I was an enthusiastic supporter of Diaspora when they started, but they seem to have succumbed to all sorts of bad advice about retaining control of everything from apparently more experienced people and are heading towards a system with serious software freedom flaws. Orderly roll-out is one thing, but they are completely closed and following the same path with a social media system that made Wave fail.
