recommended instance block: raki.social
suspend raki.social, it's ran by some techbro who seems intent on datamining the fediverse
so far it's tried to follow everyone with two bots, one clearly marked (@riker) and one unmarked as a "social experiment" (@swift)
the person running the instance isn't clear on their intent with these bots, but they have mused on the fact that you can datamine with federation bots (https://raki.social/@33b5e5/100675134230529744) which seems to me like they want to hide their intent
there is minimal collateral from suspending this instance -- only 22 users with 103 statuses, most of the interaction has been said datamining bots
going back to routine feels kind of nice though.
I'm daydreaming of the rainy fall work days ahead spent coding by my window 💙
