@bgcarlisle Luckily all the heat seems to be towards Parler and some other random centralized services (I think I saw "Rumble" on there?) but yeah we'll probably still get some spillover.

@bgcarlisle Also, when you find something, please also add it here:
fediblock.org
Because not all #FediBlock posts reach all instances, so it's good to have one big database of them. It helped me find quite a few of the really terrible ones so far, and I still need to go through it more thoroughly.
