Fediblock recommend! Important!
I know I posted this before but I'm gonna do it again to make sure it reaches as wide as possible..
The following domain: "d-fens.systems" went live a little while back and when checking out the instance it has 2 accounts. The admin(that follows known racists in the Fedi) and a 'FollowBot' that automatically follows as much accounts as possible.
Why would this be an issue you say?
Well! A while ago some bad actors made via the exact same way a follow bot that added people into "groups" that they thinked we belonged in like: "gay, lefist, activist, trans" etc etc!
These lists can only be used for targeting people online and we DO NOT WANT THIS in any way!
I again, I urge #Fediverse admins to domain block "d-fens.systems" ASAP.
The @write_as blogging platform is helping me post mostly daily. It's a clean, lightweight, low-friction platform that supports Markdown and technical writing.
Researching a blogging platform that meets all my writing and publishing needs wasn't easy. Here's my journey that led to Write.as:

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:
-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)
-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.
...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁
Attempting to become a #twitter convert. So an #introduction is due I suppose? I'm a scientist (astrophysics) who studies the atmospheres of planets around other stars. Passionate about communication science to the public, particularly when it comes to habitability of exoplanets! Follow me for science, cats, and crafts <3
Specifically, that blog is running on @write_as, a small paid service I operate, that also directly funds this community.
Since we're having a moment here in the fediverse today, I wanted to help show off what it can do. So besides welcoming newcomers to Writing Exchange, I'd also welcome you to start a free blog on @write_as, too: https://write.as/start/tesler
