@kev @mike 3 accounts with not posts and an obscene amount of follows have followed me tonight. Worth looking into

@wdavery @mike @kev Happened to me too -- though, I got followed by the four accounts over there. I went ahead and blocked the instance.

@mookie @wdavery we're already aware of the instance and are keeping an eye on things. They haven't broken our CoC, so won't be blocking the instance currently. However, you can do it at an account level.


@kev @mike @wdavery Hehe. Just to make things clear on my instance block, I'm the only one on my instance -- so the block on my instance is just for me.

@wdavery Old news. You can block the entire domain yourself if you want; it's not ethical for instance admins to block entire domains from everyone on their instance. We could do a vote or something, but it's really just easier for individuals to do the blocking themselves so instance admins don't have to get caught up in politics. There must be hundreds of accounts and instances out there worth blocking and it'll only grow with time.. self-moderation is the only solution in my opinion.
