The admin world of mastodon really is pure cancer tbh. It's mostly just butthurt people who want to bulk-block absolutely everything for the smallest offense.
I can't view them as anything other than control freaks who want to micromanage their whole social network experience to fit their wishes.
I'm with Angristan in the fact that I believe the purpose of the fediverse is to give control to users, so they can do what they want.
But good lord there's so many instances out there that just mass block and then users from these instances go around parading that you're a shitty admin because you don't block instances like others did, even though they're not even a member of your instance.
People are free to create whatever instances they want, but you'd be amazed how many instances out there don't even inform users what instances are blocked or why, and how many of them are just admins getting drunk on power.
But really the worst part about being an admin is getting hordes of people who call you a nazi just because you refuse to block <insert any instance that's been politically relevant in the past 30 minutes>.
