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.
BTW I was chastised for being on this instance because it was on a block list for being insufficiently gay friendly. The reasoning made little sense to me but I took a look at qoto.org policy and decided that the person chastising me was, from my perspective, overreacting.
