Remember when this website was about linucks and programming and not transpeople and gay shit?
@roko Yeah the The Whole Known Network is filled with much more garbage because of all this "cutsey uupsie uwu" faggot bullshit going on. God damn its like I'm diving inside a large garabge bin called Tumblr but its actually federated or whatever bullshit this fucking thing is. Doesn't help the fact you could call them faggots all day long but thanks to safe space hugging idiots they won't hear your insults, NIGGERS.
@roko I keep popping up this uhh "button" or however it is called out of curiosity sake. 90+% of the time it feels like a huge disappointment because there is soo much fucking trash going on. Yet I do it anyway because I don't have much else to do, the only good thing is I could scavenge some gud lewd images from time to time but even that is rare. I just don't know man I was comming here on this place with the hopes it will be a decent alternatives to fucking twatter but everytime I go to TWKN it feels like a huge "disappointment" (I can't find a better word for this) as I have mentioned several times before the major issues is you just don't fucking know if you can talk to this people in the first place because of this wonderful thing called instance blocking which goes completely to the opposite direction of the main point that motherfucking federation is made for. Which begs me the question what is even the purpose of this fucking federation at all? Weren't twatter to so fucking hellbent with this blocking bullshit and the privacy invading shit called "hurr durr we need your phone number or no account for you" I would probably rather use this piece of shit site. At least the block will be limited to indiviual idiots instead of a whole fucking instance. I wanted serious discussion but nope instead I get only lobotomized federated post from those faggots.

@boris @roko I've become more disappointed with the quality of the federation as well...
@moonman Well do you have any possible plans in the future to mitigate this issue a bit? In my opinion it would be great if blocked instances aren't show in the first place which would remove a large amount of clutter. This issue isn't really new and was already known during the GNU+Social times. Since obviously you are running Pleroma now how hard would it be to add support for this?
@boris I made a commitment for this server to never block anything, there's not actually a programmatic way to detect if you're being blocked.

I've considered running a second server that does something like that, but also would block dumb servers even if they don't block us, so that might not be what you want.
@moonman
>there's not actually a programmatic way to detect if you're being blocked.
Well that is really fucking stupid. I don't know who is responsible for this initial mess in the first place but who in the right mind would add support for this ""feature"" and don't even have also the same idea that this would cause a one sided "communication"(?) this is just fucking idiotic.

>I've considered running a second server that does something like that, but also would block dumb servers even if they don't block us,
I rather prefer a client side options instead of having to make another account just for the sole purpose of having less trash in the TWKN. If that is your solution to this problem then I guess I have to live with the fact that the TWKN is shit. Well whatever you must do I am not going to force you to do anything because of this.

>Tell me, who do you really think I follow for my bliss feed?
I can comprehend you don't know how to program, but if you don't know how to filter the bad from the good, may your soul have peace.
I cannot answer your first question, that is being assumed it is rhetorical. Well I tried blocking a few posters which I assume I wouldn't be able to communicate in the first place and mostly bots too, though for some odd reasons applied blocks keep clearing itself which brings me always back to 0 so I don't have much options left except of not using TWKN in the first place.

thank :gargamel: his defence for not showing blocks is somehow it rewards abuse @moonman

@dude @moonman @boris You have him as an emoji? I don't blame him so much as the way the culture is shifting. We're in the Orwellian world of newspeak. Freedom of speech, once a principal tenant of progressive ideology and democracy, is now considered harmful. People seek their own bubbles. Listening to wrong think is dangerous and will make you wrong think. Remember our technology and art is a mirror; a reflection of the current ideology of the world.

@djsumdog several of us have gargamel emojo.

In most cases you may be right but watching his shitshow play out from the start I can confidently say he deserves the blame he gets. @moonman @boris

@dude @moonman @boris Yea .. I want to start maintaining a mastodon build with certain patches. I need to get my pipeline setup...

@djsumdog @dude @boris people like him are responsible for the culture shifting so I do blame him. There is also the technical question of "well, is he right, will it increase abuse?" There is more than enough evidence after a couple years now that knowing your server is blocked by another server makes not a bit of difference. Evidence indicates he's just wrong.
@moonman similar for not showing blocks at the user level. It's broken when you have to use an alt (oh no ban evasion) just to politely confirm a block instead of a bug @djsumdog @boris
