FediBlock meta 

Sometimes, instance admins / individual, non-admin users should investigate shit before either posting on at all, or taking what's on for being true at all.

As the most recent example, the hashtag currently contains at least two instances that should not be blocked, and were merely targets of a malicious Pleroma MRF.

re: FediBlock meta 

I am starting to understand why some mutuals dislike the hashtag, even though that's not how I am using it at all.

re: FediBlock meta 

@kescher wait, somebody used MRF to frame someone? pog

re: FediBlock meta 

@ariadne that MRF pretty much didn't work as intended when interacting with software that wasn't Pleroma, or at least its impact was simply larger on instances with Pleroma. That's as much as I currently understand, which is very little.

@kescher

Pleroma does not trust forwarded remote content, or at least, did not in the Pleroma 1.x days, so any malicious MRF would be limited in scope to the instance where it was deployed.

@kescher I've treated Fediblock as a "suggestion"; one can't take the tag at face value.

Moderators and admins are responsbile to actually check if an instance is offending or not.

Re: FediBlock meta 

@katnjiapus @kescher I agree that they shouldn't be taken at face value, but I personally think that whoever makes the report is responsible for providing evidence that enforces the validity of the report.

Yes, the responsible thing is for the admin or the user blocking to *always* verify the claims, but it'll be so much easier on everyone if the work is done upfront. Especially because the person reporting the instance/user is already looking at said bad instance/user.

Re: FediBlock meta 

@saturn @kescher I agree. However not all do that sadly. :blobShrug:

Re: FediBlock meta 

@katnjiapus @kescher I hope it becomes the norm because I'm tired of having to go through a ton of unrelated posts just to find whatever offending post triggered the report
@kescher lord forbid people actually doing any research at all and not jump to conclusion within 1ns of happening
