@espectalll 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>.
@espectalll Luckily, when you're a pleroma admin, you often avoid this hell, because admins the instances that foster these kinds of obnoxious users who tell you how to do your job, just tend to auto-block all pleroma instances on sight because they think pleroma automatically means we're nazis lmao
@quad @espectalll Angristan burned out? A shame, I liked that guy.

As one of the most experienced fedi admins (like none of the pre-SPC instances are up anymore. I came like a week later.) I can just give everyone the advice that appeasement doesn't work. If you just take it easy and let shitters block you then you'll live a long and happy fedi life. If you try to accomodate them though then all you get is endless nagging and negativity because "surely he has be secretly a nazi!".

@nepfag @quad it's not like he tried to appease people nor like you can claim you aren't secretly a nazi tbh

@nepfag @quad well at least there's that...?
