instance block: pleroma.gnusocial.club
A profile full of fashy content was brought to my attention. We're upgrading this to a suspension.
Is there any reason not to instance-block gitmo.life?
If you don't have an opinion, please vote "abstain" just so I can get an idea of how many have seen this notice. Thanks.
I'm considering setting up a Masto instance specifically for political discussion.
It would not, repeat not, be a "free speech" instance. I would still expect users to obey the spirit of the TC CoC -- basically, no harassment or microaggressions -- but it would be ok not to CW political posts, and some language would be acceptable there which might be considered unacceptable here on TootCat!classic.
I'm inclined to also have firmer strictures there against spreading disinformation.
TootCat!classic (i.e. here) would probably silence the instance, just to keep pol stuff out of the fedi timeline.
(n.b. all of this is only necessary because Masto/Glitch somehow still doesn't support discussion groups. )
I'm interested in hearing thoughts on this, from both TC and non-TC folk.
I've had to take HubCat (#TootCat's Hubzilla instance) down temporarily to make room on the server (different server from the one that runs Mastodon).
I'll be resurrecting it as soon as other stuff is fixed (the server upgrade broke all the WordPress installs, and I didn't notice until yesterday).
Belatedly blocked glindr.org, instance belonging to noted transphobe Graham Linehan
new tootcat domain blocks
fedi.gealdor.space (Racism, harassment, kinmisia, run by the former cryptids.online admin [skeleton/socialskeleton])
mastodon.org.uk (COVID-19 conspiracies, racism, nationalism, etc.)
jojo.singleuser.club (Racism, ableism, etc.)
social.tinfoil-hat.net (Racism, nazi symbolism [Pepe], etc.)
I have unblocked inex.rocks, mainly because the original block was poorly documented and I therefore can't confirm whether the conditions which led to it are still applicable.
