Please report mass-follow bots. They typically can themselves "federation bots" and don't actually serve a purpose, now that relays exist.
@infra sorry if this is a dumb question, I've got one following me but I don't know of a way to report an account itself rather than individual toots. Just block it?
@salmonbill You can report any of its posts! It's not a silly question—in fact, you raise a good point: can you report an account that has never tooted?
@salmonbill Just checked and it turns out you can report an account directly from their user page. Just click the triple-dot menu and select "report".
@infra thanks very much!
@infra I agree, but tbh, there aren’t many relays out there right now to connect you to other folks. A follow bot does still do things a relay can’t.
But I still agree
Here's a list I found from @Sander
We tried homunyan, but I felt like it was a bit much.
Toots from Richmond, VA and around the world. Stick around for good vibes.
