honestly though, mastodon instances are run and moderated by real people who care about the network, to the point of often paying their own money out-of-pocket to run their instances.

the *one* time i've had to report a post, my instance admin messaged me directly to let me know the action taken about it.

don't be shy to report. it works here. the rules aren't there just to keep things advertiser-friendly.

welcome to mastodon. don't be a dick. hug your local mods/admins.

@bclindner hug my local admin?

(wraps arms around self so tightly that he becomes one-dimensional)

@bclindner Talking to your admins is magical

I asked mine nicely and got them to steal's Big Tiddy Alf emoji :bta:

@bclindner I like that mastodon helps non-technical users understand that sysadmins exist and respect the work they do

@HamDancer @bclindner
or block.
and for those really annoy instances. Just block the whole instance.
I love how much control I have as a user with Mastodon.

@bclindner yeah that's me. I'm paying out of pocket for this instance right now when I really can't afford it 😅
