@HerraBRE I mean, do you report the spam, and federate the report to the other servers? :P
If not, I dunno why you're saying this, are you expecting the rest of us to do the work? :)
Moderators do need help with these kind of things, they need your help :)
@maloki @HerraBRE spammers are clever. It's easy to create an account on any server, and before a moderator have the time to react, the spammer have sent messages to most of the fediverse. What can the moderator do? Block the account of course, but by then it'll be too late.
They could block the instance as well, but such heavy handed measures will impact all other users of the instance.
I can think of solutions but they would require protocol changes.
@maloki I will absolutely report things when I see them. Admit I am unsure about how much to report if I just stumble upon things on others' timelines.
I'm talking about this because I find it interesting. I've worked with spam in one form or another much of my career. No slights intended.
