fediblock recommendation 

Since it's been a bit since there's been a fediblock site I'm throwing up some recommendations for new instances that have come up since it went down

strelizia.net - this is an alternative instance to posting.lolicon.rocks with the same admin

rakket.app - nazis, harassment

daishouri.moe - nazis (even a big swastika on their about page)

kissl*lis.com - self explanatory

pedo.school - self-explanatory

freecumextremist.com - alternative kiwifarms instance, they operate the harassment "fediverse wiki"

beefyboys.club/bigguys.club/*.bigguys.club - neo nazis, harassment

gearlandia.haus - transphobia and racism

poast.eth - this is an alternative domain for poa.st thats operated through crypto instead of a standard host so it could potentially be used to block evade

re: fediblock recommendation 

I want to clarify that I incorrectly stated that freecumextremist organizes the harassment fediverse wiki. This was an oversight but it doesn't exempt FCE from criticism.

The problem is users on that instance collaborate with a couple other shitty instances on it, and that the admin of FCE allows it to happen because of the general culture of these instances to have hands off moderation.

It's also not specifically a "kiwifarms" instance but there are users on it who come from kiwifarms.

Still I do think they deserve to be blocked without doing the bare minimum to avoid their users contributing to harassment.

fediblock recommendation, choice quote 

@glitchwitch @fediblock

From the gear instance:

"I've not said wearing a mask was difficult, it is merely the act of a coward when done by the vaccinated."

Yeah, I didn't even see either the transphobia or racism at first blush but I think this stanky gem is reason enough to yeet.

@xenophora @fediblock it wont take long of scrolling before you start seeing the T and N slurs too

re: fediblock recommendation, choice quote 

@glitchwitch @fediblock

I'm willing to take your word for it. :D

re: fediblock recommendation 

@glitchwitch do these people really not have anything better to do with their time?

fediblock recommendation 

@glitchwitch @mawr not sure if we got all these

@glitchwitch

@fediblock

Is there an overview page where I could look up which instances in general have this content (nazi, racism, transphobia etc) ?

This would be very helpful to check requests from people who would like to follow my account and to find out what instances they come from.

Unfortunately not all instances have an About Us page or public profiles

@Urmeline @glitchwitch

Here is the blocklist:

rathersafe.space/fediblock

It's not up to date right now though.

@fediblock @glitchwitch
Thank you very much!
It will be of great help.

fediblock recommendation 

@glitchwitch Are you sure poast.eth is a real domain? I can't find evidence that .eth exists.

re: fediblock recommendation 

@glitchwitch @fediblock
> freecumextremist.com - they operate the harassment "fediverse wiki"

they literally don't

re: fediblock recommendation 

@twl @glitchwitch @fediblock also how is it a kiwifarms instance the guy running it has nothing to do with it as far as I'm aware. He seems like a pretty wholesome guy.

re: fediblock recommendation 

@welt @fediblock @twl @glitchwitch listen and believe. don't question victims it prevents mob justice from working.

fediblock recommendation 

@glitchwitch @fediblock not sure if this is enough, but on social.quodverum.com the top hashtags are maga, wwg1wga, trump2020, christian, qanon, americafirst

social.quodverum.com/explore/

fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni @glitchwitch @fediblock there is nothing evil about any of those things. why are you contributing to the fragmentation of the Fediverse?

fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika evil?

i'm just concerned about people so indoctrinated with low-quality internet bait that an instance's top hashtags include trump2020 (which, at least from my perspective is more than odd. 2020 was last year, but this may have to do with international date line or culture or whatnot. i am not too smart)

fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni If you are concerned about them why do you want them blocked?

fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika sorry for my bad wording. i'm not concerned about their well-being but about .. them spreading their bs? yeah, that's it mostly.

and yeah, the whole qanon crowd is kinda giving me the creeps. i mean: imageboards may be fun at times. but as a source for prophecy?
as a source of truth?

fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni Thing is, sure by blocking them you are reducing the number of people who will see and therefore get influenced by their nonsense, but you are also reducing the number of people who will see it and therefore persuade them not to believe in nonsense. Also, there is nothing really wrong with believing in things you and I consider nonsense. What gives you and the people who will see your report the right to be arbiters of truth? Truth is determined by debate, not authority.

fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika aha!
i actually agree!
and i also have no clue on what's the way to go to prevent fascism. but then again: boosting a toot by a nazi (bc i didn't check the profile) .... i wouldn't be comfy with that.

for me the dividing line is if you're ok with people being killed. fascists et al have proven again and again they're ok with that. it's necessary to hinder the spread of their propaganda

fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni Also, I'm sorry to say it but I'm reckon that if you go to an instance that blocks lots of others with a pepe avatar and admitting that you browse imageboards, you will get cancelled and banned pretty fast (but I'm not sure, it probably depends on the instance).

fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika yeah, people really hate that frog.

i guess if you don't post nazi shit most people are ok with you. got blocked a couple of times though

and i'm pretty confident to say: having visited and/or used imageboards doesn't make you a nazi/fascist or anything

fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni what imageboards to you browse btw? Let me guess, leftypol.org and/or one of the /leftypol/s?

fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika never heard of that one! i eventually found 4chan some years ago. but never spent too much time there (thankfully ;)

fediblock recommendation 

@glitchwitch @fediblock

there's at least one nazi on poa.st (NorseRealist, in their own words: "SSEnthusiast", "WhiteNationalist", "CounterSemite", but also "HaterOfTheAntiChrist" 🤣)

#fediblock #nopasaran #antifa #161 #keinfußbreit

re: fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni @glitchwitch poa.st is already on the list

re: fediblock recommendation 

@fediblock maybe i should move to an instance then following the list?
recommendations?

re: fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni @fediblock You can just mute instances you don't like personally. No need to move instances. But if you really want to, you can look on joinmastodon.org or use a.rathersafe.space, I guess. Fair warning, you will not be able to interact with a massive chunk of the Fedi, including me. But I suppose, since you believe that i.e. Christianity is morally wrong for some reason, that's what you want?

re: fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika where do you get that i find christianity "morally wrong"?

up to now in my life when people bloated about which religion is the best, there was usually not much quality to be expected from those ... groups.

not sure whether i have to explain "trump2020", "wwg1wga" or the other stuff.

but yeah, i hate nazis and i don't really like them liking the memes i post. maybe fedi is the wrong place for me

re: fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni You recommended an instance to block based on, among other things, the use of the hashtag "christian". That's where I got the idea from. But it seems now that you just find them annoying.

Nazis can still like the memes you post if you go to a self-blinding instance or mute their instances yourself; you just won't see them. Instance blocking only works one way usually and instance muting always.

re: fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika aha! thanks for the clarification! i still don't really understand how all of this works..

and no: just the tag "christian" is ok to me (idc), but together with the other ones it's kinda close to... white supremacy and other fascist bullshit

re: fediblock recommendation 

@ruffni Close to white supremacy and fascism? How come?

re: fediblock recommendation 

@Hyolobrika
like... really?
