Yesterday I received a warning email sent by http://mastodon.social after the thread I posted about #RMS . By the look of it, my account has now been silenced / shadow banned. My posts cannot be found through hastags or searches.
I am not moving to a new instance because of this censorship issue. I will install WordPress with ActivityPub and use it as a window to the #fediverse. That is the best I can do at the moment. I don't have resources to self host Mastodon or Pleroma. When I moved to this site I decided this is the last time I use someone else's fediverse instance. I will continue to use this account to read and interact with accounts I follow. I hope the admins of this site will eventually lift the ban.
