I have applied a domain block of type silence with reject_media toggled on to pawoo.net, because of increasing reports of loli content.
This type of domain block is not yet exposed from admin UI, so I'll probably follow up with an explanation on how to do it, but if you're an instance admin you can just use the "suspend" option for a nuclear solution to the problem.
I also intend to open up a GitHub issue for discussion about content caching strategies.
@gargron I like jeroenpraat's suggestion. (I gave it a thumbs up, I have nothing to add; it seems to cover the issues.)

@gargron I think the thing that feels weird to me is that models are basically the "business logic" of Rails code, so yeah it would definitely want to be there.
Putting it inside a service object is fine as a code choice, I guess, but it's not object-oriented design in that case—it's just a function. (with optional helper functions). They're two different coding styles and my rails experience has been pretty heavily object oriented!
@Gargron it's fair but this instance is also filled with ppl posting similar stuff directly here that's inline with pawoo, so it's not a matter of just blocking an instance.
The response to .cloud is to just block pawoo for a few days starting sometime today. And I'm not sure how they'll handle all that's on the instance.
A strategy for large scale moderation of content has got to form here and elsewhere, whether a team of mods or otherwise. Fediverse admin coordination?
@Gargron i said it there and I'll say it here. I'm not cool with the current caching model.. it puts an impossible weight on admins shoulders to keep up to date with these blocks. A better solution to this is a while away. I want a short term for now till the long term is in place.
It was loli content. What if it was child porn.
@intothemild I don't see at all how its an impossible weight compared to everything else. What if someone signs up on your instance and starts posting the same shit? You'd have to suspend them all the same, remote accounts are not different in this case, except that you have extra tools like domain blocks to simplify it en masse.
@Gargron Looks like your modification completely forbids media integration for silenced instances, they appears as external links :/
I understand you don't want to cache them or see them in the federated TL but that's a big no-no to me since you banned thousands of artists accounts.
@Gargron Okay, perfect ! I understand perfectly you can't/don't want to host some images. You're also a victim of the federated timeline, Twitter doesn't have this issue of people being offended because it doesn't have a global TL.
Thanks a lot for all your work btw :)
Loli may refer to:
"ロリ", A Japanese slang term which represents a cultural version of a more youthful or childlike female appearance. For example, girls under the age of 13 or 14 can be considered lolis. However, females whose bodies have not yet reached adulthood can also be considered lolis whilst disregarding their age as criteria.
