I've just released Mastodon De-Mob, an anti-harassment tool that lets users to block everyone who favorited or boosted a toot calling for harassment. mastodon-de-mob.codesections.c

Please feel free to test it out with the example URL I provided; that will only block a test account I set up for this purpose. Hopefully, you won't ever need it for real.

It also reports the harassing toot, which I hope will prevent the tool's abuse for non-harassing toots.

Also, I neglected to credit @kensanata whose mastodon-blocker CLI script (github.com/kensanata/mastodon-) inspired me to write Mastodon De-Mob.

My tool does *basically* the same thing but from a web app instead of a python CLI (even though I'm personally partial to CLI apps, I thought the web app might be a bit more accessible, especially for those who don't currently have python installed).
