The fedi is a racist place not because its hard to root out racism. It's been pretty easy to identify where the centers are coming from.
The fedi is racist because it wants to be racist.
It's not rocket science. It just is what it is.
People in the fedi like being hateful, angry and bigoted. It's just simple math.
The fedi itself is microcosm of Western society and it's unrelenting patience it has for violent hate and bigotry.
It's still here because people like it.
I've said this before and I'll say it again.
The fedi is just a racist place.
Sure, people have the right buzz words in their bios and all that but it's been three years and the fedi still has the same virulently racist problem it had when I first set up PV.
People say the right things in public but they conspire behind the scenes to harass Black/Brown folks.
And it's not GAB centric people. It's your friends, your mutuals, your faves.
That's why nothing is being done about it.
goblin camp mod action, snouts
Due to the repeated output of white bullshit from snouts dot online users, the goblins have decided to defederate. Because we still have a scant few mutuals there, the block will go up in exactly 3 hours, at 3pm PST. Prove you aren't part of the problem and move instances, otherwise ur gone
@FirstProgenitor i get enjoying an instance you're on and hoping for its longevity and success
i get feeling bummed if the instance slides into disrepair or closes up entirely (rip KNZK)
but the whole fedi is by design an exercise in how ephemeral things are, accepting the impermanence of it is healthy and good
the spoop is all over these hills
Announcment to mastodon.social people
Hey y'all on mastodon.social,
your instance sucks and some instances, including rage.love, will probably defederate from it soon.
I recommend you to look for a smaller, better moderated instance and move. If you don't know where to move, best check on which instances your mufos are.
Lmk if you have difficulties moving and I'll try to help.
If we are mufos I can issue you an invite for rage.love.
If you follow too many people to manually go through them and know how to run a script from the cli, you can use this script to check where your friends are: https://notabug.org/tofus/fediverse-instancecounter
