  • I don’t and will not use blocking for users basically for that reason, it doesn’t actually solve anything it’s just pretending things are okay for you when they aren’t for everyone else. It’s probably the reason why reporting doesn’t happen as much as it should.

    Even in harassment it is particularly useless because even though you stop seeing them and getting notifications they can continue replying in your threads, they can even use that to turn people against you. If it at least prevented posting and commenting on your profile I’d use it in those situations, but as it stands it doesn’t, so it’s useless to me, because if somebody is harassing me, the last thing I want to do is hide them while allowing them to keep harassing me, it gives them mote opportunities to cause trouble and removes my opportunity to report them for that trouble.

  • Which doesn’t make sense. Therefore my confusion.

    There are people who do not identify as having a gender, this is commonly referred to as “Agender”. People who identify as Agender may not identify with the concept of gender, some may attempt to present gender neutral, while others may not make an effort to present any specific way. It’s one of the many NonBinary identities, that is people who don’t identify as exclusively male or female. I can understand though that for some it might be confusing as it has only been receiving mainstream recognition relatively recently.

  • I think they’re trying to argue that transgender women aren’t real women and that respecting them and allowing them to use spaces that align with their gender identity is endangering women.

    That’s how their comment reads to me, the way they dismissed the meme gives off those vibes.

  • I don’t think that would really work since in order to make it anonymous it would need to be hidden from the other servers as well which would cause issues with moderation since if it’s never dealt with On the origin server a person could cause a lot of trouble with it, yeah you could have so that it would only be visible by moderators and admins but that also doesn’t really work if admins can view it since anyone can set up a server.

  • Yeah that would be very difficult to implement safely, and probably wouldn’t be worth the effort since the Federated model means that signing up for an account somewhere on the Fediverse is much easier already.

    Anonymous posting might have been a necessary evil on the early internet before you had all these Federated servers, but nowadays having other servers fills the role of granting easier access since you can sign up to another one where that process may be easier.
