I wish to apologize for the late responses here again. We are a team of volunteers besides of @Gargron who deal with the support on this account.
@mcg no one here (mastodon) can do the verification, because we are not centralized. But in regards to your followers and friends, there are ways for yourself to do it. Like adding an instance to your own domain, or saying on Twitter "HEy I'm x on mastodon" etc. Does that help clarify things? :) @unixbhaskar
@ultimape Threading is semi-broken sometimes. Unfortunately. It's an issue which is being worked on, and I'll pass this forward to the devs.
Regarding the other account you mentioned, they don't show up because they are sandboxed/silenced, on this server, which means you can only see their stuff if you follow them and they follow you.
Hope this clarified things for you.

@nev @charlotteis Each message has an option to report message. Which is the preferred method. We are working on helping admins report reports to each other, but we want to protect the reporter in such a system.
Admins from some servers do communicate with each other (we have a room for instance owners on discord), so just keep reporting it to your admin, or contact the other instance admin if you want.
I hope this helped.
@unixbhaskar It is currently not something we could facilitate at the moment.
However, there are other ways users can identify/verify themselves. Like tell your friends via twitter who you are on here. Or attach an instance to your own known domain name.
Hope this answer helps.
