i dont like this admin's political opinion so:

this guy just argued with me so:

this guy is not blocking some domain i blocked for no reason so:

that's it. that's most fedi admins in a nutshell.

i will post some funny screenshots if i stumble on them

@Ste1lar brb blocking myself because I'm not blocking Niu which is not blocking you for so recklessly criticizing fediverse blockade

@AkaiHebi you know people are posting block recommendation for niu because we dont block enough domains? and that alt-right/hate speech is not moderated? (its not because there is no hate speech on niu)

@Ste1lar isn't this just mostly the ones making the blocklists :blobcatthink:

@Ste1lar there were some people maintaining lists of instances that one should block to remain "safe" or some bullshit, but the ones maintaining the lists are extreme left as fuck and just throw anyone on there if it suits them :blobsweat:

@fristi even one time i seen a guy that stated seriously that niu is a fascist instance

@Ste1lar niu is on some lists as far as I know, but most weeb-tier instances are on it because they're not normalfag friendly or something. The biggest reason is usually because such instances aren't moderated as strictly. Big load of bullshit really, but I don't care. was on some lists too, I think, because someone thinks it's a loli-fetish instance.

@fristi you know when i see shit like freespeechextremist or the instance of that sjw with 120 alts i might thing that plemora is the home for 4channes

@Ste1lar @fristi I think the reason Niu is on some lists is because of lenient federation policies, i.e. federating with FSE, 465racing, etc.

I'm on the fence about that myself, but I do think it's a stretch to say that makes Niu itself fashy. The terms of service forbid bigotry/harassment/hate speech and fascism explicitly and the admin is a socialist.

@StarshineLunacy @fristi yeah.


@Ste1lar @fristi I mean to be fair there actually are instances where people straight up praise Hitler, so I can see where people are coming from with that, even if they come across a bit hamfisted/heavy handed. Politics over the last decade or so have taken a dark turn both online and offline and I think it's a bit naive to fully dismiss concerns about that as "SJW nonsense".

@StarshineLunacy @Ste1lar there's a difference between blocking and instance because the userbase is shit and because "somebody said the n word once". Basically extremists on either side ruin the fun for the rest.

@StarshineLunacy @Ste1lar @fristi @roka @phildobangnz I actually can't see all of the replies to this post from any of my currently existing alts. The only reason I'm even aware of them is because this thread showed up in this account's timeline with a reply to a day-old post I'm tagged in (never got the notification) and I went and dug it up on FSE out of curiosity. Can't help but be amused at the irony of that given the context.

Anyway, I have a lot of thoughts on this subject and was going to write a really long effortpost addressing each of your points, explaining what I disagree with and why, but I absolutely cannot be arsed right now tbh, and I doubt a wall of text from a rando with pronouns in her bio holds much weight for you guys anyway. Maybe a different time on a different account.

Sorry for repost but I wasn't sure if it'd be visible as unlisted if you don't follow me, I'm still kinda new to this xP
@fristi @Ste1lar i know of 2 instances that block mine, one because of freez peach. the other one i have no clue why.

what lists are you talking about?

@Ste1lar @absturztaube there's that blockchain thing, but some others also keep blocklists of recommended instances to block. Most of them are absolute bullshit.

Niu is on the blockchain one tho, for the absolutely fantastic reason of "unwilling to moderate hatespeech"

which is hypocritical, because they chased off wil wheaton because he subscribed to a blocklist on twitter, which unbeknownst to him started putting trans people on it.

@Ste1lar also why the fuck does political bullshit have to infest FOSS all the goddamn time, it's about software.

@Ste1lar This guy didn't fave my post even though I KNOW he liked it. Block this absolute MONSTER.
@Feuerfuchs @Ste1lar > This guy quoted me wrong and didn't even mention me as the source
@Ste1lar Wow, "most fedi admins" sounds like a colossal faggot.

@Ste1lar Yup! I think it's still better than Twitter. There you offend a monolith that can kill you in one swoop. Here it takes a while to get banned.

@Ste1lar This is why I'm strongly against domain blocks. It seems like admins, mainly those pulled over by Gargron during his campaign for "muh nazi free twitter" like their echo chambers, and as such overuse them to no end, to the point they end up with a fraction of the already tiny fediverse community to which end a group chat would probably work better. Not to mention they give people on their server no chance to object to it, thus forcing them into their own echo chamber, further fractioning the fedi. This is not the philosophy of the federated social web. The fact gargron is probably the worst offender while aiming to pull people into his junta of poor code doesn't help making him any less disapproved of.

@phildobangnz @ste1lar I was going to add that it seemed more likely the mastodon side of it than the fediverse at large. :')
@phildobangnz @ste1lar I see the block recommendation said in jest from people this side. I rarely see the other side... don't think I even want to at this point. Sounds like a headache having to worry about blocks and trying to fit in. You can't win. Especially given how more isolating it becomes with the association game.

@opal who are you even like nobody on my instance is following you and you're not following anyone like why are you even saying that

@opal why are you being offended like yes and are not the same instance like what the fuck is your problem
