Turns out my instance is being abused by movie pirate bots. As a , 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.

The beauty of Mastodon is not only that it is free and open but that it’s federated. You can fork it without losing access to the network or your social graph. There’s no reason a hundred forks couldn’t exist.

Also, when did forking become an insult? As far as I’m concerned, it’s the biggest compliment you can pay a project. And if you fork and stay federated, you’re actually helping to strengthen the fediverse!

What you can’t do is force people to build what you want out of entitlement.

Hello fediverse! This is the official Mastodon account for morii: an Android and iOS app for @pixelfed. The app isn't anywhere near release stage yet, so this account will pretty much be dev notes and feedback requests.

You can also find morii at pixelfed.social/morii.

Federated medium. Just kidding, @deadsuperhero is working on a better version!

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Think of AI as Augmented Intelligence instead of Artificial Intelligence.

Whose intelligence is being augmented? Is it yours as an individual? (Yes, if you own and control the AI.) Or is it augmenting the intelligence of a corporation? (The norm today.)

CYBERPUNK IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE SOMETHING YOU WANT TO HAPPEN

WHEN I NAMED THE PAGE "CYBERPUNK IS NOW" IT WAS A WAY OF SAYING "SHIT'S ALL FUCKED, YO"

Curious how a widespread power outage makes you recognize just how dependant we are on tech.
