Hello !Friendica Admins

How and when do you block single accounts or complete servers?

Do you block whole servers when you see a block suggestion?
Do you check the server to block before you block or rely on the suggestion?
Same about single accounts?

I usually just block stuff I stumble over or things people get upset about and tell me.

If one of regular #Friendica admins writes about some really hard stuff poster/server I will usually check the block suggestion and take action when I agree.

I don't want to over block, but I will certainly not tolerate hate speech or stuff that is against laws. I am not a lawyer, so I will use common sense only to determine, unless there is reason to put in more effort (ie. stuff on my servers or so).

Put your 5 cents here. Just interested to read some thoughts.

Friendica Admins reshared this.

Ich blocke bis jetz nur einzelne Accounts wenn:
- diese mir auffallen
- diese mir gemeldet werden und ich dann die Meldung überprüft habe

Ganze Server habe ich bis jetzt nur gab* geblockt
I try and do the minimum size block that I can. If a server admin "isn't home" (isn't responding to issues on their system, doesn't care, etc.) or the instance is nothing but garbage (entirely subjective, of course), then it's likely I don't want content from that system hitting mine and I'll filter it.

If anyone wanted to discuss a block I have in place, I'd be glad to, but it hasn't happened yet. heh
@Adam this just arrived.

Yeah, I just don't like too fast and to wide blocks. Specially these blocklists or so. These didn't do good on Twitter and probably won't do good here.

Wow... yeah, something's constipating up my instance - I have this huge backlog of tasks, and have posted on the support forum, hopefully it doesn't take a week to show up! (Along with this comment...)
