@iakshay @Full_marx I think the fediverse network is at about that 1% size of birdsite. There are instances that are right wing, including some that allow posts that get them blacklisted by others. Qoto is very open and does not block any instances, but expects decent and civilized behaviour from its users.

I think that is a good posture. I read a page today with a list of instances that are blocked by the mastodon.social instance that Karl got banned from.

I also saw posts at another place (included on that ban list) that will show up here, in the federated list, and some are appalling.


@design_RG @Full_marx I guess I made a mistake by choosing the wrong instance.

@iakshay @Full_marx Oh, you can always move to another instance, Akshay, if you feel your opinions might offend your current host or users. Your followers list can be copied over, I believe.

Mastodon.social is the mothership, the largest mastodon instance, and was closed to new members for some time.

If you haven't had any problems so far, maybe it's ok, but it will depend on what you post and if there's a reaction from their users.

Regarding "birdsite", no, there's no rule that I know of; I think it's more of a tongue in cheek way to refer to the bigger site only, not mandatory.
