a lot of instances have feminism.lgbt on their suspension lists. This is because it has been a TERF instance. However, a quick look at feminism.lgbt reveals that their domain has been taken away, and instead, you are greeted by this text:

feminism is for everyone

feminism is nothing if it excludes queer people, queer black people, queer people of colour and queer disabled people.

this place used to be the home of transphobic, homophobic and racist feminists, who called themselves our allies.

now it stands as a reminder that our solidarity will overcome their bigotry.

Therefore, you may want to consider purging data related to this domain and undo the domain blocks for that domain.

, more like , I suppose.

@dreadpirateyarr that I do not know.

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher err, it was never a TERF instance, it was used for griefing

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@ariadne I am going by what instances give as block reasons. According to those: Overwhelmingly a TERF (+ a lot of other shit) instance.

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@ariadne and still, even if it was griefing: it is quite obviously not owned by the same people anymore.

@kescher my point is that the #fediblock hashtag has the same level of accuracy as the town gossip, or perhaps TMZ

@ariadne @kescher i dont know if this is a new account and youve been here a while, or if you are a newer member to fedi

but this is a very bad faith understanding of what the hashtag does

but good thing is you dont have to engage or use it if you dont want.

@ariadne @kescher

If someone doesn't provide a screen-grab when they suggest blocking, I always go and look. I rarely find that the claims of block worthiness are exaggerated. And I rarely have to spend more than a minute finding block-worthy shit, either.

@kescher is there actually a fedi server there or just that page?

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@yomikoma there was a fedi server. now there currently isn't. but let's assume it hosts a fedi instance again in the future - it should not be preemptively blocked from doing so anymore in future imo.

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher oh agreed :)

@kescher sounds like some TERFS got their domain yoinked somehow. Any idea how the change in ownership happened?

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@Byte Likely, the TLD operators got involved. See also the terms of service of .lgbt.

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher makes sense

re: fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher so there's no fedi instance there, but if a new instance uses that domain name in the future we know from a previous #fediblock situation when somebody revived bofa dot lol as a joke that domain name reuse causes… problems on the technical side of things, in particular if usernames are reused

re: fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@sixthhokage95 hence why people should probably purge the domain data.

re: fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher nice idea in theory, in practice the old data's probably going to stay on the network ready to be zombified thanks to anti-moderation shitholes

fediblock, unblock suggestion; (thread missing CW) transmisia 

@kescher .hg is…is lgbt. a GOOD registry??

re: fediblock, unblock suggestion; (thread missing CW) transmisia 

@moonbolt idk. maybe?

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher do we have any information on when ownership of the domain changed relative to this?

re: fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@carcinopithecus Lining up whois info and archive.org, that would be sometime in 2020 already.

re: fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher @carcinopithecus if my instance automatically stopping delivery a week after this is anything to go by, it went down on may 3, 2020

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher i love a happy ending!

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher Heck yeah! That's a positive surprise. :blobHajShock:

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher If it's changed hands, it's a good idea to purge domain data on your server so the old stuff doesn't come back to bite everyone on the unblock.

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@BalooUriza Hence why I said this towards the end of the post

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@kescher whoops!

Head empty, heart full...

fediblock, unblock suggestion 

@BalooUriza don't worry, I do this a lot too
