Confused about blobs in ssb. After doing some reading, it seemed as though they are replicated "automatically", meaning any blob in the mentions array is downloaded, and it's up to the users to for example not follow someone who shares an excessive amount of data. But looking at the docs for sbot.blobs confuses me, in particular the want method https://scuttlebot.io/apis/scuttlebot/blobs.html .

Also have decided to get tests going on the local machine so that it runs 2 sbot instances that can replicate with each other. It's going to be difficult i imagine, a day time activity. Testing in a 'live' scenario with another person is fun when it works, but is kind of time consuming now.
