So it seems joinmastodon removed QOTO from their directory without cause, without contacting us, and without any discussion or due diligence.
Since this is the only way to actually find QOTO for new users if it isnt reversed soon it could mean the end for our wonderful community.
If you care about this place remaining fair, respectful, and inclusive environment I highly suggest everyone reach out to them annd voice your objecttion and your disapointment and having no procedure to keep this fair and inclusive.
If you want to see QOTO stick around you can email your objecttion here:
Feel free to CC me here: email@example.com
Please be respectful, we want to show them we are the good guys and not give them any reason to object.
@BilliardLentil @freemo @Gargron @trinsec @khird it seems pretty straight-forward to me (and I think anyone that has the ability to read would agree). But feel free to check for yourself: https://qoto.org/about/more
Thats the problem, people dont do due diligence, they see some conversation in private and outt of context, dont even bother to take the 5 seconds it takes to ask for more info, and then act on it regardless of what damage may come for others…
I expect better from the leaders of mastodon.
Oh dont worry I am not upset with you. I appreciate you bringing it to our attention.
What made you think the CSAM thing was the reason? Are you assuming or did you see some conversation with the mastodon leadership?
@freemo @JoshuaACasey @Gargron @trinsec @khird and I'm sorry, I don't recall which individuals or instances were involved
Ahh I see, so no reason to think it had to do with the leadership at mastodon.
QOTO: Question Others to Teach Ourselves
An inclusive, Academic Freedom, instance
All cultures welcome.
Hate speech and harassment strictly forbidden.
@freemo @JoshuaACasey @Gargron @trinsec @khird I saw you tagged or mentioned about it the other day, I think on my federated timeline. There was a screen shot of something, as I recall, and the same uncharitable interpretation of "voting"
