I saw someone claim that other instances are starting to block fosstodon because of that one controversial toot. Is that really so? Which ones?
For my part, I don't see the point in giving up on this place because it has the chance of going bad. I can always move out later if that actually happens. And I don't expect it to happen.
@ataraxia937 scholar.social silenced us. Here is a link to their toot and a transcription of it:
> The instance at fosstodon.org has been silenced from scholar.social
You can still follow anyone from there, but their admin has explicitly abdicated responsibility for the conduct of their users, including the use of slurs
@ataraxia937 I've also heard from others that additional instances silenced/blocked us, but no specific names
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
