Upgraded to v3.0.0

Free Radical is now on Mastodon v3.0.0.

Suspended freefedifollowers.ga

freefedifollowers.ga was spamming dozens of users with thousands of follows. As it seems that there’s nothing of value on that instance, I suspended it.

Upgraded to v2.9.3

Free Radical is now on Mastodon v2.9.3.

Suspending kiwiwarms.cc

I’m suspending the kiwifarms.cc instance. Their public timeline is full of literal Nazi content, pedophilia advocacy, and aggressive trolling. I’d put this off because I hoped it wouldn’t be needed, but there you go.

New GitHub organization

The GitHub content that used to be hosted under https://github.com/kstrauser/freeradical is now at https://github.com/freeradical-dot-zone, in separate repos for Ansible, scripts, and content.

Dropping weedis.life

The weedis.life domain seems to be a ghost ship that is intent on DoSing users by sending them a million follow notices. I’ve suspended them.

Disconnecting from Gab

Due to overwhelming feedback from our users, Free Radical is suspending connections to Gab.com and its affiliates. If there is content there that you wish to see, please consider creating an account directly on their instance.

Silencing domain anime.website

At their admin’s suggestion, I’m silencing (not suspending) the anime.website instance due to uncensored NSFW content. Same as always: I won’t stop you from following users there. This just keeps that out of the federated timeline.

Upgraded to v2.9.2

Free Radical is now on Mastodon v2.9.2.

Silencing baraag.net

I’m silencing the baraag.net instance, whose about page says: This instance welcomes loli, shota, fan works, graphic violence, and any sexual depiction expressed as a piece of fiction in subject or setting. Follow them if you want to, but that’s not the federated timeline I want for us.
