@paulfree14 It would be inappropriate for me to discuss the philosophy of nudity and sexualization here. Our moderation policy is informed by Germany making nude images of children illegal; the owner of the site can be prosecuted for publishing them, and our rules protect him and the rest of the members of the site.

@paulfree14 Sorry, we're not going to change our community guidelines or terms of service to allow underage nudity of any kind.

It should go without saying - I cannot believe that I have to say this - that if you're under 18, DO NOT POST NUDES. Don't do it. Don't. Do not. If you're under 18 and you think it might be a good idea to post naked photos of yourself here, instead: DON'T. It is a BAD IDEA.

@jojoba As I just explained, you can't communicate with me if I don't follow you.

@amnet I beg your pardon, but either I don't understand what you mean, or you don't understand what I mean.

@wonderfall @maloki This simply isn't true. I personally have spoken to you several times. If you're not even going to try to discuss this in good faith, then I think we've said all we need to say.

A gentle reminder: freedom of speech must, necessarily, include freedom to respond to that speech.

@wonderfall @maloki "Your admins didn't try anything"

This is flatly, provably untrue. We have had multiple conversations conversations about your moderation policy going back several weeks, to when I personally first reported H5N10 to you and you refused to deal with him.

Perhaps what you mean is "your admins didn't just agree with me and stop doing things I don't like". In that case, yes, that's true.

@wonderfall @maloki Yes, and you're using it "for the particular utility of those in whom it's trusted", not "for the advantage of all". If you're not going to use your authority to take a stand against harassment, then we have fundamentally different views and we have to be able to protect our users.

@wonderfall @maloki There have been many long discussions about the concerns about your moderation policy, and we share those concerns. You cite the Declaration of the Rights of Man; I do too:

"XII. The guarantee of the rights of man and of the citizen necessitates a public force: this force is thus instituted for the advantage of all and not for the particular utility of those in whom it is trusted."

"Let's play a game, to help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

wait, nobody on Mastodon has ever used a dial-up modem, this joke makes no sense to anybody here
