@pperrin well Masto.host is open, anyone can contact me with any specific requests they have. I am not fully aware of what happen and from reading that post probably he could have a different experience if he ran his own instance. And, probably not and he would still feel like social media is not for him. So, if I am contacted, I will gladly provide my services. @ainmosni
"I respect and support that person’s decision, because it’s a private server and it’s run with their time, energy, attention, and (presumably) money"
Which makes me think he might be happy to pay for his own personal managed instance (managed tech and spam/abuse etc management!) if he knew such a option was available.
Don't ask; don't get!
@RLetot @ainmosni @mastohost Smallish instances would solve most problems - an instance that keeps generating abuse needs to sort out its members or get muted or even blocked. New instances could initially also be muted unless/until a dozen people on trusted instances vouch for them... the instance admin has this kind of stuff in his (male or female) power already.
Train users? there will always be jerks, I vote to just deal with them.
@pperrin @ainmosni @mastohost
you're thinking about this particular case, and tayloring your "solution" accordingly. I'm thinking of the more general case: nobody should have to move or pay because a bunch of lunatics decided to make him a target. Any mean to make this more manageable or to get such behaviour under control is a step in the right direction.
I think some people actually dislike mastodon, and would really prefer
twitter to have a monopoly, but with them in charge instead of jack!
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
