This is a reminder that Switter is run in our spare time and it's pretty much close to impossible to actively monitor a social network of 150,000+ users to prevent bad actors.
The moderation tools Mastodon provides make it difficult and time consuming to deal with the amount of reports we get.
@j sure. silencing would also work if you want to keep stuff around but not allow anyone else to see it
@nightpool Silencing only prevents it from showing up on public timelines right? The account still appears to be active otherwise which is also not what we want
@j silencing someone will prevent them from being seen by anyone who does not follow them (unless they're like, looking at the person's the profile page directly)
@nightpool the current problem is that people still think the account exists because it's linked and viewable, even while suspended or silenced

@Gargron it's all good, mod tooling is hard! The main thing that would help a lot for us is a non-destructive mod tools so we can take on more moderators without the potential of data loss
@j Don't blame yourself. My grandmother once said that there was no such thing as an orchard with no bad apples.
@j yeah you can. www.recognant.com does sesta fosta monitoring. We handle almost a million posts a day currently. More info at www.SEST-FOSTA.com
@j Is there any feature you can think of that might help? I'm a developer and I've been trying to think of a new feature Mastodon could use. You can DM me if you think I might be of help.
