Because this program is very well behaved and doesn't crash if its allocations fail, so it will just stay there having claimed almost every byte.
@Vierkantor It would be nice if there were some sort of back-pressure in the memory allocation mechanism, instead of just having the two possible results be "sure mate, here's your memory" and "there's absolutely no way I can give you any more memory, I'm dying".
@Vierkantor I forgot there's also the Linux way: "Sure mate, here's your memory, oh, you want to actually use it? Damn, I was hoping you wouldn't. Here I go killing again."
Mastodon is a server for a federated social network: everyone can run a server if they want to, including me. So this is a Mastodon server for me (Vierkantor) and my friends.
