Regrettably we've had to deal with several instances of racist content over the last 24 hours.
We remind our users that we have a zero tolerance policy on racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia on this instance, in accordance with our instance rules.
Like many other Mastodon instances mas.to is paid for and run by private individuals. We do not owe any user a platform, and will actively remove any user who believes they can post racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic content here.
@trumpet That's what happens when a viral tweet invites hundreds of Twitter users to come in our instance, who may not understand our culture.
Maybe I've missed something, but till now all I've seen is a small group of Argentinian buddies flooding the instance with private jokes, and sending insults one to the others. Would you have a link to the racist tainted Toots?
