Librem, meta-ish, blocking corporate instances 

Remember a few months ago when someone posted that the fediverse at large needed to be prepared to unanimously ban the first corporate instance that would inevitably try to monetize and corporatize this space?

This is just a reminder that librem.one is here doing just that, and it's really important that they experience instance suspension on a large scale, despite claiming to be about privacy and security.

@bedap also, if you don't wanna block corporate instances, they have a ton of altright shitbags too!

re: Librem, meta-ish, blocking corporate instances 

@bedap like how do more people not know about these instances being shite archive.is/LRB5u

re: Librem, meta-ish, blocking corporate instances 

@bedap a corporate instance that lets bigots run riot?

Yeah, fuck those guys.

re: Librem, meta-ish, blocking corporate instances 

@somarasu I've only just seen that whole mess. Suuuuper fuck that

@bedap Honestly shocked that this hasn't already happened. The librem.one instance is FreeSpeechExtremist and Albin combined, and those are both instant suspensions.

@MadestMadness @bedap Instead of blocking them I just tell every single user who tries to follow me there that I'm not accepting their follow and why, and I suggest they re-follow from another instance.

@MadestMadness I know quite a few instances have, but I'd personally love to see their instance face a total blackout. Don't let it even resemble a functional, connected social media node.

@bedap done and done. thx for the awareness.

@DialMforMara @bedap @gannet yeaaaaaaah blocked.

@bedap we should seriously consider having like an independent instance admin union for formalized collective action. there will absolutely be more like this and we should be ready to respond quickly.

@bedap wow i just looked at their website and that is straight up a screenshot of tusky
they are not even trying to hide it

@bedap i liked librem at first
keywords "at" and "first"

re: Librem, meta-ish, blocking corporate instances 

@bedap not to belittle your point, but that has already happened with pixiv and nobody's noticed or cared because they're japanese and we don't really see or interact with them

@bedap *blocked on exposure*

re: Librem, meta-ish, blocking corporate instances 

@bedap I love their spin on it, actually. Like if I am not mistaken they removed the local and federated timeline from their instance. This is "because the user hasn't consented to seeing it", aka "this is so you don't notice we are banned by so much of this place"
