Data.coop set up a mastodon instance very recently. Our block list is therefore empty. Are there any instances we should block immediately?
I'm also not seeing any results for yet.

@reynir Okay, det er så mærkeligt. Da jeg var bruger på norrebro.space, der vrimlede det med opslag på hashtagget . Nu - på social.data.coop - finder jeg kun dit opslag.

@tbhdk tror bare det er et tegn på at vores brugere ikke følger nogen der har tootet om #\fediblock siden vi kom op at køre. Er sikker på der nok skal komme en masse toots om en uge :)

@reynir Det håber jeg. Sidst jeg kiggede det hashtag igennem var der nogle virkelig grimme eksempler på ubehagelige typer og trolde der var værd at blokere.

@tbhdk mange instanser deler deres blockliste under /about/more. Nogle gange med begrundelse, men desværre tit uden offentlig begrundelse. Har startet med at blokere kiwifarms-domæner som en start \o/

@reynir Ja, man skal lige gennemgå anbefalingerne kritisk. Det ville være fedt, hvis folk hver gang ville vedhæfte eksempler og detaljer om hvorfor de har blokeret et domæne. Dog er der nogen domæner der giver sig selv. Fx musksocial[.]com (er nu forsvundet).

@tbhdk Ja, der var en der tilbød at booste de sidste to ugers #\fediblock hvis jeg fulgte dem, og det gav en del.

@tbhdk Der har været mindst to personer der har svaret (på mindre pænt sprog) at de er imod blokering af domæner, og jeg har ret meget lyst til bare at blokere deres domæner.

I øvrigt kunne det være super praktisk hvis vi kunne lave instans-lokal scope til at diskutere moderering!!

@tbhdk @reynir Et block om dagen holder fascisterne fra døren 🍎👩‍⚕️

@reynir For at fortsætte den gode stil med at holde vores data "hjemme", så har jeg oprettet et lukket chatrum på vores Matrix til debat om moderation af vores Mastodon. Jeg har inviteret dig og spørger lige på Signal om der er andre admins og moderatorer der vil være med.

@reynir follow me and I can boost all the fediblock I see if you want?

@reynir also worth checking my servers blocklist should be publicly available somewhere

@maloki thanks, I found yours. Sadly, you don't list any reasons.

@reynir
I have a single user instance and don't encounter much of the fediverse but I've built my block list from instances I find decent.

Toot.cat has reasons on their list. toot.cat/about/more

Eldritch.cafe does, too, in French.
eldritch.cafe/about/more

@maloki

@reynir oh and it wasn't obvious to me at first, if you copy the longer instance names or reasons that look truncated it will paste the full entry when you paste elsewhere.

@maloki

@reynir that should be about 14 weeks of posts from fediblock. 😅

@reynir why not look into the blocklist of an instance that align with your values. It might help you bootstrap yours.

@soapdog Yes, I just remembered that being a thing, but now I can't find where on instances you see this list. Do you remember off-hand? Cheers!

@reynir some, like Merveilles Town have it in their about page:

merveilles.town/about/more

I don't know how common it is to place it there, you might need to check some other instances.

@soapdog Yes, thanks! I just found it. The one instance I was most interested in doesn't seem to publish it (I thought they did). Thank you for helping out!

@reynir no worries, maybe messaging an admin of that instance asking for the blocklist will work as well.

@paco Added the domains I found in block lists that said kiwifarms as a first step. Thanks!

@reynir I'd suggest looking at the /about/more page of a well-moderated instance you like, and checking out who they block.

I think hashtag results depend on who is in your network, so if you don't follow anyone it won't populate.

@nev Yes, that was the issue. This instance is brand new. A kind soul offered to boost fediblock toots.

I have looked at other instances' block list, but unfortunately they often don't publicly list the reasons.

@reynir I’m also at the same state; I checked the most established & known servers’ block lists and added the ones I saw.

@reynir maybe you can browse the tag on a bigger server like this to get started mstdn.social/tags/fediblock

@Herover ah thanks, good tip! I also have accounts on other instances I could use. Why didn't I think of that :D

@reynir You can take a look at our blocklist and if you need to then I can explain most of them.

@reynir It's generally pretty useful to checkout the tag from other instances' perspectives, for example: mastodon.social/tags/fediblock

@reynir also interested in something like this. I thought of perhaps a community maintained list of abusive users/hosts, with proof, etc.
