Hey, so one downside of reversible suspensions in Mastodon 3.3.0 is that due to an oversight, the suspension is only communicated to the account's followers, which is usually far from everyone who needs to know about it. Due to this, a lot of already suspended accounts keep getting reported from other servers. Until we release a fix, consider checking if the account still exists on the original server whenever possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.
@Queerioyouknow Basically they didn't strip metadata (such as GPS location) from photos and videos uploaded to the site, and they also didn't truly delete posts after they were deleted. They were just hidden.
Someone found a vulnerability which allowed them to download all posts, photos, videos, etc. including the deleted ones. So now there's a massive public archive of all that data.
@discorpse I check the local feed a few times a day to see what's up and make sure everything's chill. There was a spambot that mentioned a handful of random users but I deleted it. Reports get handled almost instantly because I get an email notification when there's a new one.
Overall it's not too much work, but I do what I need to keep the community safe and well
@discorpse Mastodon is a federation, so vetting doesn't really do anything if people on other instances are being problematic. Dot lol already has most of the unmoderated/fash instances cut off. You won't know they exist and they won't know you exist. You can even block individual instances as a user!
There will always be shitty individuals in every community. If you spot people being problematic on here I'll deal with them
Missed the chance to say they're Mastagone, fuck.
