I think perhaps this is why a lot of the instances you see on FediBlock/BlockChain are Pleroma instances rather than anything else. It's a shame because there's a lot of good that can be said about it. The modularity of interfaces and overall lightness of the code makes it super useful for running on a small device. PleromaFE is one of the few super minimal UIs that I like to look at. But ultimately just really saddened by the way moderation/content is handled.
I've made the decision to shut down my Pleroma instance (feed.casually.cat), as I'm not satisfied with the moderation tools whatsoever. I've found in multiple cases that instances which were set to be rejected (Pleroma's version of suspended) were not rejected and instead federating with my instance. I've also noticed that there's pretty heavy tolerance for instances which are especially vitriolic on the dev side which concerns me.
Hey uhhh if any of y'all are furries (chorus: WE ARE) and like transformation (chorus: OH NO WHAT'S HAPPENING TO MEOW?!) you might wanna check out @Casuallynoted, who's building a whole instance for this sort of thing
It's up!! Woot! I'm so excited that https://transfur.online is now up and running. :) Serious mega thanks to the previous owner, @holly for being freaking amazing and letting me take on the instance :D For anyone who's interested in furry transformation content or who knows someone who is, this is gonna be a server dedicated to it ^_^ I'm really excited to see #TFTuesday shenanigans.
To federate and follow my admin account there, just follow @Casuallynoted !
Yikes, looks like some alt-right shit ended up on my relay while I wasn't looking. Switching to a whitelist mode for now and I've blocked the instances that have followed. I think it'll be wise to do the whitelist method for now while certain communities are trying to exploit the fediverse as a replacement for Parler.
