Somebody reported me to myself, y’all. How’s your day going? :)
Hint: if you don’t like my comparing Israel to Russia, go tell Israel to stop acting like Russia.
(And find out how the fediverse works before you go making an arse of yourself trying to censor me on my own personal instance.)
@aral nI did not know...
Interesting iits a good way not to get challenged.
I would never have though about doing that ....
@natacha It’s not about not getting challenged. You can get challenged all you like (as anyone you haven’t blocked can reply and challenge you). And, as I said, no one is forced to listen to you either as anyone can block your account or the whole instance.
But what it does is correctly model personhood, which the “servers of many” model doesn’t.
It’s the small tech/web philosophy. Communities are made up of individuals. That’s what we model.
Personal Instance is indeed a choice, mine is a collective choice, I find it more nurturing as you have to negotiate a way of sharing a space and some common grounds in discourse.
It also alleviates a lot the personality visibility.
I usually only block real problems fascists and such and people attacking, I do not block people because of what they say but because they start being a nuisance, This is a personal choice.
This is my personal Mastodon.
