There are millions of websites which wouldn't translate well to Gemini.
Gemini does not need to have them.

You can also link to any file type on gemini:// and your user agent can
choose to support it or hand it to a program which does.

Centralized systems (like gmail) are also a large *source* of spam. If
servers are smaller and more populous, it's easier to cut one of them
off for bad behavior.

On Mastodon, problems of spam usually come with running large servers
and are easily dealt with on small servers. The solution: run small
servers!

I don't understand why we can't just keep the gemini response around
longer.

Yes, you are on LibreSSL. Sorry, I missed that. LibreSSL is not OpenSSL.
LibreSSL can eat shit and die.
