Hey Folks! We have noticed that there has been an increase in NSFW content that's being federated with #Fosstodon.
Per our Code of Conduct (https://conduct.fosstodon.org) we have globally blocked those accounts.
If this affects you then we apologise, but we have to ensure Fosstodon is welcoming for as many members as possible; and having porn visible in our federated timeline detracts from that.
Thank you all for the continued support - you're all awesome!
@fosstodon So block rather than silenced?
Silence would remove it from the federated TL, but still allow your members to follow it if they prefer.
@maloki so silence will stop anyone on the instance from seeing posts from that account, but those individuals who already follow will continue to see their content?
@maloki cool. That's obviously the way to go then. I'll circle back and silence those accounts instead. Thanks for the tip. 👍
@fosstodon i, for one, am very glad about this. Thanks, guys and gals!
