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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be respectful, we want to show them we are the good guys and not give them any reason to object.
Yea, we are **very** strongly pro LGBTQ+ and our moderation policies and practices have always reflectred that.
The irony is that it is explicitly our protectionn of the LGBTQ community that lead to a lot of the misinformation about us spreading in the first place.
