‪The fediverse synchronization service went down, which is why the federated timeline was so far behind. It’s been rebooted and rebuilding most of the day, and things should be back to normal now on .‬ Sorry for the quasi-downtime, everyone.

has just broken 500 users! Great job everybody! Here’s to the next 500 🍻

@gmcgath the address has been updated to: 14VTxqhZuZYwwqSm7Gd6xZRS2Zy8w3cV5Y

Apologies for the issue. Please try again if you're so inclined, and let me know if you notice any other issues. Thanks for your help!

@kanuuker per our Code of Conduct (liberdon.com/about/more#conduc), ethnic/racial/homophobic slurs are not tolerated; your account has been muted until this post is removed. Please review the Code of Conduct, then message back to confirm that you understand and the post has been removed, and the mute will be reversed.

@rationalreview hey, your account is still spamming (see screenshot for one recent example), so your account was temporarily muted again. could you please review the Code of Conduct (liberdon.com/about/more#conduc), specifically the part about ensuring your account isn't posting so often that it's overwhelming the local timeline (up to a few posts per hour on average is a good rule of thumb), and reply or DM back with your plan to ensure your account meets these guidelines? thanks! 😃

@gmcgath great questions! Thanks for bringing them up. I've added some updates to address these. Could you take a look and see if that answers your questions?

@rationalreview this is like trying to debate a child. you're clearly a foolish person who either doesn't understand what words mean, or doesn't want to because it affects you specifically.

stop spamming. end of discussion. I'm done with your childish contentions.

and stop spamming your foolish argument in other people's posts like a child.

@rationalreview the exact definition of spamming, which I posted, covers what you were doing, exactly.

so just don't do it anymore. problem solved.

it's not that hard. thanks.

@thomaslknapp thank you for confirming that you indeed do not understand the meaning of the word "commercial". when you have ads on your site, when it's a profit-making venture, then it is by definition commercial. you might be the only person who's ever debated this fact, it's really not in question by anyone. so yes, even by the strictest definition of spamming being related to commercial activity, you were still spamming. so just don't do it anymore. problem solved.

@thomaslknapp no one is going to kick you off for commenting on my moderation, because that's not against the terms.

but spamming is. so just for the sake of completeness, I'll repost this here:

merriam-webster.com/dictionary
that's literally exactly what was occurring. and since it seems clear you also don't know what the word "commercial" means, here's a hint: when you have ads on your site, it's a commercial site.

maybe YOU should learn what words mean before making a fool of yourself like this.

@thomaslknapp LOL, actually this is very illuminative because now it's clear that YOU don't know what the word means: merriam-webster.com/dictionary
that's literally exactly what was occurring. and since it seems clear you also don't know what the word "commercial" means, here's a hint: when you have ads on your site, it's a commercial site.

so are you done yet?

@thomaslknapp this is what the local timeline had started looking like. that's clearly spamming. this isn't rationalreview.com. if you aren't happy that the terms didn't clearly spell out that that's spamming, which ought to be obvious, then sorry. if you would like to write an exhaustive list of things that constitute spamming and submit it for consideration, please feel free. you're also welcome to start your own instance w/ rules where a single user takes up the whole timeline, if you like 👍

@rationalreview btw, apologies for not responding sooner, but this is resolved. thanks for your understanding 😃

@thomaslknapp except that was an instance of - albeit inadvertently - spamming, which is also clearly posted. the auto-posts were coming in bursts of 10 or so and overwhelming the local timeline. they were kind enough to fix the issue and now it's resolved. so I'm still not sure what your issue is, but I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

@thomaslknapp sure, it's very simple - anything not listed on the about page as one of the few prohibited things here, such as NSFW content, is fine. NSFW content isn't fine. that's all.

Liberdon

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.

Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!

This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.

Enjoy!
