#UFOI article is out now. I discuss why it’s better than #Fediblock #Fediblockmeta, my ideal solution for the #Fediblock, and how the #UFOI approaches these issues, with a nice word from @freemo addressing my most serious concern with the project.

I hope y’all find it interesting, if nothing else. Been wanting to release it for awhile now.

No, Fediblock Isn’t Better Than The UFOI https://paper.wf/casey-magazine/no-fediblock-isnt-better-than-the-ufoi
@PKMNLives @ufoi @casey-magazine @freemo You're wrong, but assuming you're right, anyone can fork the #UFOI to make their own thing, and its structure is quite fine.

If #fediblock #fediblockmeta adopted this structure, they wouldn't fall for #Nazi disinformation campaigns, nor could their activities be obfuscated or interfered with by third parties.

Its amazing, every single word you said is wrong. QoTO has been the leader in being a "good actor" for 5 years. We were one of the first servers to have a transparent and defined moderation process. We were also one of the earliest servers to explicitly include features and process to protect at risk groups like lgbtq and minorities. QOTO is the founding member and other members are held to the same standard

I challenge you to find even a sibgle example of a bad actor that has been reported and we refuse to act on, go ahead ill wait.

Also the idea that most of the fediverse has blocked the UFOI is a complete fantasy, in fact quite the opposite is true. UFOI currently has about 5% of the fediverse pledged to join. The vast majority of servers blocking UFOI are single user servers. The percentage of servers based on user count that block us is less than 0.05%, so there are about 100x to 500x more users in the UFOI than those that block us. By comparison QOTO remains one of the most federated servers on the internet.

Dont buy all the propaganda you hear.

"[Qoto was] defederated for many reasons (some receipts attached) that had nothing to do with that users, and everything to do with their moderation policies or rather lack thereof."

I find this fascinating... "receipts" paraded about in fact show sensible moderation policy, rather than a "lack" of anything. Is it possible claiming "receipts" hoping for no discussion of them or actual reading of them takes place? Looks suspicious, like a bad actor move. How does "legitimize" this?


The second he was corrected he threw up his hands and said he wont even discuss it. Then thinks my friend stux is gonna block me or something... Stux actually bothers to make informed decisions. It says a lot when someone refuses to even probe random screen shots or look past their own nose. This guy is either a troll or a tool, cant figure out which.

@PKMNLives @realcaseyrollins @ufoi @casey-magazine @stux

@freemo @Romaq @PKMNLives @ufoi @casey-magazine @stux Stux is great! Very cool dude 😎 I actually always use him and his instance as an example of a non free speech instance run correctly.

Not sure about this PKMNLives person so I can't make a judgement and I feel like doing so isn't worth my time. Maybe that person has been duped by certain lies and doesn't feel like digging for the sources? Or is just busy and doesn't have the time to respond to what we're saying? 🤷🏾‍♂️

At the end of the day I don't find these sorts of backs and forth worth my time. I just laugh and move on.


Yea you are correct on all of that. I do suspect he was just duped (thus why i call him a tool).. way I see it if you dont have the time to do the research, and you dont even bother to talk to the person accused enough to get the facts, you probably shouldnt be talking.

However if I look at his timeline all I see is an endless stream of him telling people to block this person or that server. If his "accuse first, do research later" mentality is any indication I can only imagine just how much harm he has done to the fediverse spreading lies and misinformation while encouraging people to block each other. How much needless name calling and fracturing has resulted because of this persons negligence? He is exactly the reason we need something like the UFOI, so no wonder he is so opposed to it.. HE is the type of bad actor we are trying to put in check, people who spread lies out of laziness and ignorance.
