Since the server will be running Ubuntu 18.04 for a while, I switched the kernel to the HWE version (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack) which mean more recent kernels until the next LTS. For now this means Linux 4.15 -> 5.0.
Since I didn't ban the gab™ for now, we've been banned from a few instances. If you know which ones, please answer this toot so I can update the block list. https://gist.github.com/angristan/2f2f36452a8a23e7d8c31529f4d02487
Since I am here let me clarify three things:
- some say i have been personally harassed, which is not the case at all. There is just people talking about me or mstdn.io, nothing personal. I'm just fed up.
- I have said it multiple times but it seems I have to say it again: I do not plan on abandoning my instances
- i'm fine :)
FYI I wish I could just trash this instance and leave this toxic world that is the fediverse (at least as an admin), but many people trusted me by signing up here for the last 2 years, and even though there are only a few hundreds of active users, I can't let you down, and I won't. But I regret the decision I made more 2 years ago. I guess this had to happen one day or another. I'm fed up with this.
Because I consider the users here smart enough to decide what they want or don't want to see, mstdn.io might get blocked from an unknown amount of number of instances.
Sorry if this is affecting you, but this is my take on it.
@ users: feel free to move to another instance if you don't agree with this. You have every right to do so.
@ admins: feel free to ban mstdn.io if you really think that's what you have to do.
