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

@ashfurrow @socialskeleton @Gargron I don't know many more admins and mods, get the word out, let's fuck this spammer up

@bclindner @ashfurrow @Gargron Thank you for writing this. Unfortunately, I'm hosted and can't get that under the hood, but I'll boost.

@socialskeleton You can run this on your local machine if you'd like - all it needs is credentials to a mod account and a Firefox driver. I'm actually not even sure it can run without a window manager.

@bclindner It should be able to run with a Xvfb or Xephyr instance and a simple WM like TWM, if you wanted to wrap it in an API on a VPS.

@SuperFloppies Ideally I want to cut Selenium out entirely. It sucks for this. I could probably do this with just an HTML parser and it'd be cleaner to run, if more involved to write and maintain.

@bclindner Probably needs JS too.

I wish I could offer an assist to make a lightweight port but I am really down and sick. I haven’t touched a computer in a couple of days. ☹️


@SuperFloppies I think the moderation part doesn't use React, it's more of a static site, so I think request replaying will work here!
