In case you missed @jโ€™s toot - the child pornography account has suspended in a slightly different way so we can provide evidence to the authorities.

The account in question is still there but in a suspended status as Mastodon's native suspension tools removes everything which we don't want as we want it for evidence.

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.

Hello Switter,

We've been made aware of a specific account which has been suspended and we are submitting the data to the authorities.

The @switter account is not actively monitored due to the amount of mentions it receives.

If you see an account of this nature, immediately contact @e, @j and @lolahunt or e-mail abuse@assemblyfour.com.

We take this very seriously and are thankful for everyone who has reported this and for making our community a better place.

Everything has recovered, happy tooting ๐Ÿ˜
