Warning regarding 

The instance at has not upgraded their instance since version 2.1.3, and so they do not receive reports of abuse from other instances

This is a safety issue for users on other instances such as Scholar Social, as (regardless of the good intentions the admins of this creates a de facto harbour for potential abusers, where people on other instances who make reports may not even know that no one is reading them

Warning regarding 

Scholar Social has not blocked, but if anyone has reported an issue with a user from that instance, please let me know so I can take action, as will not receive your report

Depending on the amount of time it takes for them to perform this upgrade, the decision not to block may be revisited
