idea for blocking gab
afaik the mastodon moderation API doesn't have endpoints for domain blocking yet (is that right @Gargron ?), but this could be done on an individual account basis till then.
i'm not talking about running machine learning algorithms on the contents of anyone's posts. rather, on the relationships between instances.
if a new instance shows up, and it primarily interacts with gab and other "free speech" instances, it could be a hint that it's something you'd want to block.
i think we should be very wary of ai-powered moderation but with gab joining the fediverse in 10 days, we're going to see a lot more fascist instances popping up. this gives moderators an even greater workload.
just a thought: perhaps something like @fediversespace, combined with a simple classifier, could allow moderators to proactively discover and block instances that harbor nazis.

So, I've been thinking. And you're all right. Neutral will never bring on change.
#FLOSS is riddled with the "we must stay neutral" mentality, this creates a problem in this space, it simply isn't safe for minorities to participate in a lot of the conversations.
This means being neutral isn't neutral at all.
Who's onboard to work on FLOSS from an anti-racist, intersectional feminist perspective?
racism, danish media, fascists
omg the danish national news just mentioned Generation Identitarian as “the immigrant-critical youth movement” instead of calling them nazis... this is becoming so normalized and i’m terrified #dkpol
danish politics, police
danish police often get data from telecommunications companies about the location of a given phone at the time of a crime. now they have discovered a bug in the software that normalizes the companies' data to a common format. this bug means that up to 10,000 prosecutions from the last 7 years may be incorrect.
