Ultimately, we've had over 800 new users in the last 48 hours and only two people have challenged our moderation policies. I'd be happy with a 0.25% failure rate in any aspect of my life.
LOVE THAT WE HAVE THIS KIND OF INTERACTION WITH YOU
YOU DONT GET THAT ON TWATTER OR FIENDFACE
@AlphaEcho I aim to please 🙂
@dr_fudge @AlphaEcho One was trying to find how far they could push transphobia on here (nine complaints from other instances), the other was harassment of a user on another instance (three complaints). The latter wasn't the worst I've seen, only a warning and we deleted the post to keep the peace, but the user wasn't happy with that.
@dr_fudge @AlphaEcho One of them has already set up an account on @glindr.org which I suspect will be more aligned to their views. the other is looking for another instance. It's important that it's not about whether or not I agree, but that these are public posts and are seen across the entire fediverse and can reach people who, like many of the Scottish influx, were looking for a safe space on their Mastodon instances.
@dr_fudge @AlphaEcho I'm really a very easygoing person. If you want to come and have a safe space for Scottish people to talk about Scotland then go for it. If you want to come here to continue some massive argument from Twitter about gender then maybe go to one of the instances where they discuss the sort of thing more?
@trumpet I missed what happened
Did a trans extremist cause the problem?
This is a Mastodon instance primarily intended for (but not limited to) users in Scotland or who identify as Scottish.
