everyone's mad at mastodon.social for a variety of reasons, some good, some bad. i don't plan to restrict anything from mastodon.social unless the spam doesn't let up, but i am to believe they are working on it.
we also get a lot of spam regs here, so if you have any friends that want to join w.l don't forget you can send them an invite so they can join right away and don't have to wait for me to plow through the backlog (or worse accidentally bulk deny them 😅 )
@firstname.lastname@example.org your mastodon instance is on a horribly old version with at least one major security vulnerability, please update
@anna you have a lot of faith in this one guy when you have to admit its prudent to just limit or block the torment nexus that is forming. A lot of instances already had long ago. Personally I would recommend limit so you only see accounts other people already vetted.
I do agree that you shouldn't harass the person himself though.
@wolfcoder its more that i don't really have a lot of faith in anyone, including eugen, so i don't really have unreasonable expectations for him. i disagree with him on quite a few things but that's like, fine.
A witchy space for most any face! Whether a witch or a witch-respecter, join the coven that is free of fash, TERFs, feds, and bigots
in general im tired of everyone finding some reason to heap abuse on eugen/m.s fortnightly and in general the fediverse needs to do a lot of work on working through issues without excessive escalation, and this is the north star for pretty much every admin decision i make
