A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.
Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
Getting started on Fediverse;
It’s not quite that simple. The instance in question is an “anything goes” free speech instance full of all sorts of awfulness, including transphobia from the admin who runs it.
Russian troll bots or not, the instance isn’t one I’d be comfortable having in my feeds either way
@ada I did some further research. You’re probably referring to this, right? He posted an update though.
Imo it might be better for the admin to close registrations though, and let people apply for an account as on other instances, especially if the instance becomes too big. It’s too problematic to leave everyone create an account on such an instance for the time being.
He still posted homophobic slurs thought, and the instance still has “no restrictions on topic” nor any rules against bigotry listed on their rules page.
Maybe I only took a brief glance, but the instance seems to be for infosec professionals. Nothing stood out to me as chuddy on the explore page, and I saw no mention of freeze peach in the instance’s description. They even have a rule against hate speech.
This doesn’t seem to be a freeze peach absolutist chud instance like wolfballs.
Where is the rule against hate speech? The rules page says there are no restrictions on topic, but makes no mention of hate speech, bigotry or anything like it as far as I can see.
According to those rules what’s to stop transphobia, homophobia, racism etc?
I think there might be 2 different instances being talked about. The one with rules for hate speech is ioc.exchange. The other one ua fediland one another user mentioned in this thread.
The UA fediland one is the ukranian one with the bots. It’s the one that this thread is talking about when they say that russian bots are trying to get a ukranian server defederated.
However, when you look at ua fediland, it has no rules against hate speech, and the admin uses homophobic slurs.
The infosec instance isn’t related to my line of discussion
Gotcha. I saw the link to the instance in the OP and thought that was what you were talking about. My bad.
It’s ok, since they’re Ukrainian they’re allowed to be nazis and say whatever they want
OP is clearly Romanian though.
I’m talking about the Ukrainian instance, not OP though
Which one it is?
@PolandIsAStateOfMind it’s soc.ua-fediland.de
The one this entire post is about
I don’t know which one is that, OP link is restricted for me, but whatever.
Spotted the Russian op.
