To make it easier to deferate from unwanted instances I have switched to using the fediseer. With this tool I can get censures from other trustworthy instances. A censure is a “completely subjective negative judgement”(see more here) and reasons for the censure can be listed.

Currently I’m using the censures from be seen here), that has any of the following reasons for the censure

  • Lolicon
  • CSAM
  • Fascism
  • Hate speech
  • Bigotry
  • Pedophilia
  • Bestiality
  • MAP

I will still manually deferate from instances, when it is needed, but this makes easier to deferate bad instances I would have missed/didn’t know about.

Note: The automated deferation also includes spam instances, which is currently defined by

  • More than 30 registered users per local post + comments
  • More than 500 registered users per active monthly user.
