@mikefordays @GinnyMcQueen the beauty of the fediverse is that you're free to move around though. I think if people really wanted to spout senseless crap on the fediverse they will just find another loosely moderated instance and go from there. That would place the burden of blocking/filtering on the user again like before the deplatforming.
@tkt058 what causes your negative thinking? Maybe you can work on solving that, and then you might not be as stressed. Good luck!
@milan Das ist kein satire? 🤔
@ConnyDuck I think there are close-minded people regardless of their political affiliation. Any undesirables should get the same treatment.
@GinnyMcQueen agreed. If we are to bar undesirables from the fediverse we should make clear exactly what behavior is unacceptable and block federation with instances based on that. But AFAIK most instances already do this because they have their own ToS.
@GinnyMcQueen segregation leads to radicalization. Leaving those with views like that to fester within their own community makes them blind for other ways of living. Let them be able to see the other side of the argument so that they may learn from it.
Dear Tootdon users,
We decided to end the service of Tootdon for iOS / Android on July 7, 2019, in consideration of the usage situation of the app.
We sincerely apologize to the customers who enjoyed it, but thank you for your understanding.
You can continue to use the mastdon instance currently in use from Tootdon by accessing the website of that instance with Safari or Chrome browser, or using a client application other than Tootdon.
Valve hires KWin core developer Roman Gilg for gaming-related XServer and KWin improvements. Roman seems to have a ton of cool projects in the pipeline, and this makes me happy. #KDE
このたび、2017年より運営してまいりましたTootdonですが、アプリのご利用状況等を鑑み2019年7月7日をもちましてTootdon for iOS/Androidの提供を終了させていただくことに致しました。
@pixelfed won't this create extra work for you? "why isn't federation working as I expect it out of the box?" will be a question you're going to see a lot. This unexpected default behaviour isn't a very sane default for software.
"Why doesn't my car go into second gear?"
"You just have to remove this bolt to enable that"
That would be weird.
Do reconsider this decision and instead instead enable your software to let users filter or block instances or users themselves.
@kline I hope your day improves though!
@kline The fediverse works in such a way that you don't really see things you don't want. This whole issue is so blown out of proportion 🤷♂️ All it resulted in is me getting insulted and blocked by complete strangers. 10/10 would participate in discussions again.
@kline "stop liking what I don't like!" the movie part 2: electric boogaloo.
@milan very nice
@Tusky Will this block be limited to fascism or will it include other instances which show unwelcome behaviour on the fediverse?
@deutrino I don't think it's worth mentioning as it would only invite people to harass them for their (albeit questionable) choices.
