The moderators of mastodon.social - including me - fielded one thousand reports between 4 PM US Eastern yesterday and 5 PM US Eastern today. I'm /pretty/ sure that's the longest queue I've seen since I started moderating there in May of last year.
Why is this step necessary? mastodon.xyz might not be the server where you are registered, so we need to redirect you to your home server first.
