Literally none of them. This dude is pissed off and angry that he lost an argument a month ago. He keeps bringing this up while somehow graduating me from moderator to admin for no reason whatsoever. Especially hilarious considering he says that he broke off the argument after seeing i’m a mod when the actual message thread he was involved in directly proves the exact opposite. I’ve also never suggested defederation with anyone except for hexbear and lemmygrad. Two instances that Lemmy.world are already defederated from.
Someone sent me a message of a couple of his posts saying this. Just frustrated me. If people don’t like me that’s fine. I don’t care what people call me. But I do care when people are basing their opinion off of something that isn’t true.
And nah. You weren’t a bozo. You fine. Happy holidays buddy.
I’d argue it’s legitimate for server owners to decide who their servers communicate with arbitrarily. Servers that want to be popular, however usually have consistent policies for moderation.
I self-host Mastodon and subscribed to a couple relays early on so my server has seen content from a variety of places. After I added a full-text search patch, I searched for some slurs to see if any racist content had reached my server. Some had, and it was all from poa.st - hardcore Nazi and KKK sort of stuff. I would absolutely block them if I was operating a public server.
Fortunately, those people don’t try to interact with the bird photography and flashlight reviews my accounts post, so I haven’t had to do any moderation.
