Masto mods and admins, please open - new anti-spam tool 

Say hello to Ivory, a new anti-spam tool for Mastodon. I've been working on this under wraps for the masto.tech mod team this weekend. This can auto-handle reports for you. Please let me know if you're having troubles setting it up or running it. It's using Selenium (I know, I know) so things will probably break. Still, it's a workable stopgap measure while we await the Moderation API.

@espectalll This is what happens when you piss off the instance full of software developers 😎

@bclindner just keep in mind spammers are using link shorteners, so is Ivory following redirects?

@espectalll Uh-huh! Added that the moment I saw it this morning. Use the link_redir rule.

@espectalll If the spammer finds a way around that, you can probably just add their phrases to the automod and it'll still catch them.

@bclindner tbh that way probably is selfhosting something or using a tool which handles requests depending on user agent or IP or something, so it would probably still be easy to block

@espectalll Ooh, IP tracking! I can make that work.
