instance blocks 

added anime.website for insufficient moderation. thanks for entering the mentions.

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.

@moderation >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).
This seems kind of extreme. It would probably be better to send a quick message to their admin(s), telling them their CoC is gone and asking them what it is, like you did with @mewmew earlier - it's very likely that many of them are completely unaware their CoC is gone, and might never even realize they're being blocked just because a bug wiped it out.
@galena @moderation yeah.

Due to the way Pleroma manages that kinda stuff if you don't know what you're doing your ToS can easily get deleted any time you update. I've seen it happen to a lot of instances (including mine lol).
@moderation @galena it is. just the way that works is unintuitive and poorly documented.

particularly, you're supposed to put the file in a separate folder, and leave the basic one as a fallback. but people just modify the basic one which is tracked by Git.

@mewmew @galena anyway, if this policy is extreme, we're tony hawk's underground 2. it's easier and safer than the alternative.
