@clarkenciel I told you! A masterpiece of outsider art. So wrong and bizarre that it becomes somehow beautiful.
Having moderated a large online community for about a decade now, I'm finding the collective arguing about CW protocol and kindness vs. freedom interesting and familiar and tiring and valuable all in a mix.
Community self-identification is a weird process, and I think I am mostly glad that mastodon doesn't by its very structure require the answer to be monolithic and universal.
But I will tip my hand a little and say that erring on the side of kindness is pretty much always defensible.

@itsDaninsky tbh if a follow/federation-related feature is going to be added, it should probably be a setting for instances to explicitly federate all posts from another instance, e.g.:
it should be simple enough to make instance X be a subscriber of instance Y's firehose feed, like any other API consumer would be, and then followbots become irrelevant because the server gets all posts regardless

Generalistic and moderated instance. All opinions are welcome, but hate speeches are prohibited. Users who don't respect rules will be silenced or suspended, depending on the violation severity.
