I need to hang a sign on the sign up page for m.t that says “this instance is basically run by hippies, get over it or sign up somewhere else!”

I’ve had users signing up today just to tell me I did a moderation wrong.

Here’s the thing tho

“Free speech” is my freedom to use the banhammer so hahaa get fucked.

@ashfurrow i'm pretty sure a couple of them came from here

@trickster @ashfurrow Damn! I've always hated Linux Youtubers, but this video has a "je ne sais quoi" about it! It's sorta given me an idea...

fedi pol 

@trickster why does he spend a minute talking about snow in Louisiana and also his cat, just get to the goddamn point

fedi pol 

@rfox @trickster He talks about his cat to prove that he himself isn't racist. How could he be racist if he named his cat after a black president?

I believe the snow thing might be a casual segway into a more controversial topic. The cat thing also serves that purpose.

This is why I love this video. It has red flags hidden underneath more red flags! I have been doing nothing but daydreaming about making a parody of this video!

@Lofenyy @trickster you piqued my interest, so I subjected myself to the video.

What a wild ride

fedi pol 

@Lofenyy @trickster also, "I mainly use mastodon to post links to my videos as soon as I upload them"

Sounds like Ash also banned a spammer

re: fedi pol 

@ashfurrow this stance is exactly why I decided to make your instance the home for my more professional account, thank you for running it this way ^^

@ashfurrow with a CAPTCHA where the requestee must correctly identify which trees are best for hugging.

@pasco yes! correct answer: any tree. but then they’d just get disgusted with the concept and never complete sign up hahaha

@ashfurrow This website is exactly like 1984, smh. Seriously though, the moderation on this site is amazing. I'm always worried about joining FOSS & decentralized alternatives to stuff because they always seem to attract really bad people.
