mastodon question 

How come i have 3 follow requests? Most people just directly follow me but I also have follow reqs? Are they being polite or are they like from banned instances or something?

@zladuric it's from an instance that your local admins have set to "Silenced".

Federation still works as normal if you explicitly follow people from there, but the posts don't show up in the Federated timeline, and all follow requests require manual approval.

Based on my own experience they are requests from users on instances that your instance silences.
