PSA: botsin.space, tor, etc Show more
Over the last few weeks, I've dealt with a large amount of DM spam being sent from this server out to other fediverse instances. Most of the spam has been for adult cam sites. managing the reports for this spam has taken up a lot of my time, and allowing the spam to be sent places undue burden on admins of other instances. i determined that a huge amount of this spam was coming from a small subset of IP addresses owned by the hosting company OVH 1/*

Hi folks, I'm getting a bunch of reports of accounts that are signing up here to send DM spam to other instances. I'm blocking them as soon as I get reports, but I'm also exploring ways of just auto-blocking them. Anyway, sorry for the annoyance!
