@wilw Not sure if you can still see replies here but here’s my unsolicited 5¢ worth: Leaving the fediverse is like leaving the Web; you don’t need to to play by your own rules. You just need your own site. Get Hugo (@mastohost) to set up mastodon.wilwheaton.net, block who you want, and take control of your own presence on the fediverse. Unlike Twitter, each of us decides what the fediverse is. We shape it. Stay, on your own terms, & help make it better by example.
I'm not happy with how the Wil Wheaton situation was resolved. An admin was overwhelmed with frivolous reports about him and felt forced to exile him. I've said before that I think it sets a dangerous precedent on how a large group of people can mobilize to drive anyone off the fediverse. Mob rule is universally dangerous: Mods and admins must examine evidence and decide based on wrongdoing and danger, and not on how many times someone was reported.
@Eweish1 I have no problem with trans women. There's a pretty big lie circulating that I do, and I think it's because the blocklist I originally used at the birdsite was made by someone else, who put a lot of trans women on it. I *always* removed trans women from my version of the list when I found out who they were, and even stopped sharing it entirely when I found out I couldn't remove all of them.
So I'm not anti-trans, or anything else (except anti-people-being-dicks-to-other-people).
A Hetzner connectivity issue has interrupted communication between one of the database servers (replica) with the rest of the mastodon.social infrastructure.
I have temporarily disabled usage of the replica which will reduce our traffic capacity, because the replica is out of sync with the master database it's not usable right now.
