If you have a problem with another user, please report them and explain the problem instead of encouraging other users to dogpile them. This isn't Tumblr or Twitter; there are actual moderators here who will try to handle disputes.
@CM_noelle thanks folks! Bet it's been a bit wild the last 72 hours or so. Well done.
@CM_noelle It's good to know this is not equal like T**blr or Twatter
@louisoft01 I'm a moderator of mastodon.social, talking about mastodon.social to the new users of mastodon.social. Not every post is about you. ;)
@CM_noelle the shade
@dextromethorphan You're welcome to criticize the moderation, but you're also wrong. We ban child porn on sight; this has always been our rule. HOWEVER, I can't possibly see every post on this site, so if nobody reports someone who's posting child porn, I don't know they exist to ban them.
And I, at least, haven't suspended anyone for using slurs. At most I've deleted posts and removed their ability to post to the public timeline.
@dextromethorphan If you give me their usernames, I'll be happy to look up why they were suspended.
@dextromethorphan As for freedom of speech: I'm not sure where the meme that because you're free to speak, you're entitled to a specific platform came from, but you're certainly not entitled to an account on mastodon.social. No one is. Otherwise we'd have to allow the child porn you're so angry that we "don't ban" (once again, we DO).
