Fediverse meta, blocklist, announcement, hatespeech 

Hey all, it looks like we're appearing on a list of instances to defederate with because a user from here is showing up on the "followers" list of the freespeechextremist instance. I'd like to address this.

That instance was one of the first instances we defederated from after a user from there harassed one of our users here. To be clear, I don't want to associate with that instance of all. That instance very clearly goes against our rules.

This may possibly be a bug of some kind, so I'm investigating this. Thanks for your patience, and I'll have an update shortly once I know more about what's going on!

In the meantime, I hope you all are having a peaceful weekend! :D

Update: the original poster of that blocklist has since deleted the original thread, admitting they got some things wrong. I'm still concerned that our site is showing up on that other instance, but it looks like nothing is wrong on our end.

However, just a reminder:

Any instance that gives room for hate to thrive does not deserve to federate with us. I'll keep doing my best to see how we can block these instances pre-emptively. Your reports all absolutely help too!
