Turns out my instance is being abused by movie pirate bots. As a #mastodonadmin , how can I not only deletes them but prevent it from happening?
Any blacklist? Or do I have to weed it out manually every time? I don't have time or resources for the attacks and I need some help.
@nonlinear lol this took some searching, but tracked it down...
You set an environment variable:
Lemme know if that's unclear or if you have more questions
@slackz I hear you. And this doc is priceless.
But it's still after the fact. And its a build your own blacklist, so each instance gotta fend for themselves.
I mean, of course I can fix it, but it's an instance of 1 and a half admins, so anything that can ease our burden is welcome.
@nonlinear oh for sure. I def hear that. I haven't contributed code yet, but I'm familiar with rails and shit. Workin right now but I'd be happy to try to investigate further and try to get a PR in for this.
Totally agree that moderation stuff needs to be as robust and accessible as poss. Ppl came to this network as an alternative to facebook/twitter cesspools, so we need to have much easier tooling around handling abuse
I'm fairly new to #mastodon, and still learning admin basics myself.
