Yeah okay, mstdn.social is now blocked in #China
No problem! We got a fully working #Tor address: https://c6usaa6obkiahck7rkn2phbffb3strd375pfpxmawuexnmectjizyjad.onion/about
And I wonder.. If ppl from China where to check from another instance it would use that instance's IP etc so it still would be "online" (i think!)
It just uses Chinese servers i guess
Got blocked for somebody posting about an event in Tiananmen Square that [DIDN'T HAPPEN] on the instance?
@naia yaay, thank you! ❤️ it's kinda uh.. 'hard' to find nice Pleroma instances with decent policies
@naia @stux though Stux, one thing that is a bit not that nice with that random list, the fact the first page you stumble on with them is the known network.. which is not quite a nice thing considering many pleroma instances are much more relaxed on blocking, so you have many of the alt right instances shown in the known network.
@stux @naia please, as while for myself, the known network is the first place I'm going to look before joining an instance to see if it federates with those alt right instances that no one in their right mind wouldn't see as anything but neo-nazis that are constantly going around harassing.. like eveningzoo for one, which I definitely recommend putting on your blocks, same also with anonymous-japan's instances, two that were invved in the harassment to me last week that came from obviously being shouted out on mstdn.jp and their alt instance mastodon.cloud.
But yup, still, the known network just is not a good look for the link to redirect to, as folks will only lose comfort in you with something of yours leading folks to be exposed to that stuff. So yea definitely edit how the link is lol
@naia @stux though, https://hwl.li/theme/toots/app/uploads/domain_blocks.csv is an export of it for ya :)
@naia @jase Our blocklist is availble here! https://github.com/mstdn/Mastodon/blob/main/dist/domain_blocks.csv
As if you could only block individual users, I know for sure that I'd of had those neo-nazis for a few weeks in my mentions, like beginning of last year when I had the [email protected] neo-nazi group target me for a few weeks on Twitter and Instagram 🙃
(Censored that name I ain't interested in bringing them here 🙃)
Just so cannot say the same for other socials lol. Really is able to make the difference between dealing with abuse for a few weeks compared to a day or so.
But on the other hand, we do have quite a large userbase and i wouldn't be fair for them and for the Fedi to cut it off, neither do we want that
We have good teams of moderators/admins on all instances that very much agree on the rules and how we should handle them
