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:

hello@joinmastodon.org

Feel free to CC me here: jeffrey.freeman@qoto.org

Please be respectful, we want to show them we are the good guys and not give them any reason to object.

More concerning to me is that Qoto is now being blocked by a couple servers on joinmastodon and some other ones I also recognize:

hachyderm.io
mastodon.technology
octodon.social
pettingzoo.co
mastodonapp.uk

There's probably more, I got tired of looking.

@freemo @trinsec @khird

@ambihelical

Thats not entierly accurate.

Hachyderm.io reversed our block once the community reached out to them.. mastodon.technology is shutting down and many of its users moved to us.

As for the last three, look at their block lists, its so long your finger will get a cramp scrolling it, they effectively block almost the entire fediverse.

@freemo @trinsec @khird

So the people I was following (I think at least 2) are gone from my following list, do I have to refollow them, or will they reappear at some point?

Follow

@ambihelical

you will probably need to refollow them.. it may be the hackyderm server didnt update yet with their own block list.
