// @Wulf I totally understand this point of view!!!
but, IMO, is that the best way to solve this problem in a way that grows mastodon as a whole is by forcing Milan get his damn userbase together.
I think this b/c the admin backchannel has been fairly receptive to me echoing your concerns there, and has been discussing this issue nonstop all morning.
// @Wulf (continued)
We suspended Highland Arrow because their admin refused to discuss at all. It was clear with Highland Arrow that the admin totally endorsed the behavior of the problem user. This situation is the opposite, so we want to resolve it with something less heavy than a domain block.
@GinnyMcQueen I honestly hadn't thought of it that way >_< I'll push for more enforcement on that admin specifically
(I'm avoiding mentioning their name over and over for the time being)
do you have any suggestions beyond the current thing, which is that at least 4 instances banned him
@cyrinsong Silence is sandboxing, they can only talk to each other (who are sandboxed) and not interact with any of your users unless they are being followed.
Instead of blocking (suspend) the entire instance, this would mean that users who are following good people, can still follow them, and interact with them.
@maloki this is domain silence VS domain block ?
