browsed the #fediblock hashtag and grabbed a bunch of instances we hadn't caught up to yet; future blocks will be added to this thread.
We're gonna be crystal clear here:
If your Code of Conduct doesn't specifically forbid harassment against protected classes, we are going to block your instance.
if your instance *does not have* a Code of Conduct, we are going to block your instance.
It appears a recent pleroma update has broken the links to terms and codes of conduct. Until admins resolve that we're going to assume the worst about your rules (or lack thereof).
Suspensions can be undone if there's reason to.
a previously-unknown nazi instance boosted this post, so I'm adding more blocks as the replies to this account increase.
going ahead and blocking any instance with a "windmill" (swastika) emoji.
so-called "loli" content will be treated as indistinguishable from child pornography for the purposes of moderation.
@amolith actually, yes, so thank you for this reminder to implement one ASAP.
@amolith added, thanks!
@moderation excuse me, but such a criteria is absurd. my instance have no any CoC, ‘cos I’m the only user here. do you really think that I’ll willingly harass anyone just because I did not deny that to myself explicitely in CoC?
@fuzzylynx single-user instances are definitely exempt but it’s helpful if the fact they’re single user is made clear on their homepage
@moderation ok, thanks
@moderation that sounds like a monumental task
@saetron not going out of our way to find them, don't have enough time or energy for that, but when they show up in the mentions of our users lack of moderation will be considered reason to block
bigshoulders.city is a Mastodon instance for Chicagoans current, former, and future. Its name comes from Carl Sandburg, who once compared ships pulling out to “mastodons, arising from lethargic sleep.” Our goal for bigshoulders.city is to build a community of friends and neighbors across the Windy City. Toot your pho place recommendations, meet-up ideas, pothole gripes, creative dibs, and cross-town baseball taunts—whatever you want, as long it abides by our short and sweet content policy.
