Shout out to @freemo for blocking users instead of blocking instances. You're the real MVP


@Siedge Thanks, personal freedom is important. Not to mention there are many reasons a block could be harmful to well meaning local users.

Take the GAB block. We have users on our server who specifically asked me not to block gab because they monitored accounts on gab for possible hate speech (for example Milo's account). To them it is a safety matter as they want to be aware when/if milo were to dox someone in their community. So to them even though they despise GAB as a platform not blocking is a safety measure for them.

In the end the power should be with the user, I cant predict why or how they might want to follow someone. What matters to me is how our users behave, not what posts they happen to choose to read for whatever reason.
