Pawoo.net has been silenced and media originating from that server has been blocked because at the time of blocking they allow child pornography, and the mere possession (which includes existence on a shared server) of that content is illegal in the country where mastodon.social is hosted.
The instances that m.s silences/suspends are available on request.
Hey all, just a reminder since it's come up today: "sexual depictions of children" are banned on mastodon.social. That doesn't just mean "naked children"; sexualizing children REGARDLESS of their state of dress is explicitly disallowed and will result in revocation of access to mastodon.social.
A kid went out on Halloween as a pirate, with raggedy clothes, a fake parrot on his shoulders, and a big floppy hat. At the first door he came to, a woman opened the door and said, "Oh, what are you?" "A pirate captain! Arr!" the kid replied. The woman asked, "And where are your buccaneers?" After a moment's thought, the kid said Show more
("What word?" You know what word. If, after saying the word, you have to explain that no, you don't mean ALL women/black people/gay people, just the ones you don't like, then find a different way to express yourself here.)
Hi everybody. Just a gentle reminder to read the instance rules if you haven't already: https://mastodon.social/about/more
The moderation staff take those rules seriously and take reports seriously. If you notice anyone breaking those rules on the public timeline, please report them so we can look into it.
We want mastodon.social to be a safe and friendly instance, which means no sexism, racism, homophobia, etc. - even if you think you're using that word in a way that doesn't hurt people, don't use it.

@taoeffect The m.s staff has come to the joint decision that it's time to ask you to leave. Your beliefs and behavior are at odds with the culture we're choosing to cultivate on this specific instance. We're going to give you 24 hours to export your posts and your lists of users you're following, blocking, and muting, so you can import them elsewhere, but after that your account will be suspended. This is a courtesy not commonly extended, so please don't abuse it, or the timetable will move up.
@taoeffect @Gargron Greg, you were not "shadowbanned" for "fighting racism", you were silenced for generating a large number of reports over a very short period of time. We've asked you repeatedly to tone it down and you won't, so another moderator temporarily silenced you while we make a decision on how to proceed.
Transphobia is against the guidelines here.
If you think asking someone not to violate the rules of the instance, to which they agreed when they signed up, is "extreme political correctness and thought policing", I think it might be time for you to start looking for another instance.
@schatzschild @taoeffect Perhaps I was brusque. The site posts a very long list of trans people who have been accused (not convicted) of crimes. A non-discriminatory site would post a similar list of cis people who have been accused of crimes in a similar timeframe. The failure to do so is an obvious attempt to discredit and damage the reputation of trans people as a whole.
