politics, fediverse moderation 

Might be a good idea to keep an eye out for the next few weeks. Trump and a bunch of other hard right media figures are getting banned from Twitter and Facebook. Parler and Gab are getting booted from Google Play and likely the App Store, too. That's going to shake out a lot of fashies. They'll be looking for new digital spaces where they can recruit and coordinate, and some of them may land on fediverse servers. Keep your guard up.

Parler is now closed indefinitely — after a data breach that exposed 7TB of data.

No idea where all of those users are going to land — word is, there's been a lot of coordination on Telegram, but I doubt that can replace the lost social functions — so this week may see a big influx of new far right accounts. Stay alert.

@lrhodes they’ve already been knocking on doors.

@lrhodes
Perhaps this would be a good time to remind admins that hiring new moderators is a possibility and that people are willing to crowdfund this.

@lrhodes I doubt that. Mastodon is more difficult to use and will probably scare them off. They'll stick to web versions of GAB and Parler. Anyway I kind of don't mind them coming here. Internet used to be this giant scrapyard of ideas. Now it's becoming centralized around just a few companies. Trump fans and QAnons got hit first but probably won't be last. I can imagine that in few years people who oppose ban on encryption will be banned.

@lrhodes yeah I was going to make a snarky announcement about Facebook tankies. Getting in a tissy about a Corporate platform, banning fascist. Like, that's exactly what we want to happen, and that's how Anarchists designed the internet in the first place.

@lrhodes I REALLY hope mastodon doesn't become the new gab

@sodality
i don't think that'll happen, the maintainers of mastodon seem to be firm leftists themselves and the decentralized nature of mastodon makes that very unlikely
