Switter is federated with other Mastodon instances. We can't control what those instances allow, however if you are seeing content from other instances that you are concerned about you can report it to us so we can at least prevent that content appearing in the Switter timelines. You can tell it is another instance because the username will show the domain name of the remote instance. (5/6)

Like all users who aren't you or the sender, we can't see DMs that are sent to you, so if you are reporting something that has been DM'd to you make sure to include it in the report so we are able to see the content you are reporting. (4/6)

If you or someone else is being harassed by another Switter user (or a user from another Mastodon instance) please include the relevant posts and let us know about the situation. We don't allow any A4 platform to be used to harass others but we can't take action if we don't know what the situation is. (3/6)

Including context is super helpful. If you believe an account is fake, let us know why. If it is impersonating someone, let us know who. When you send us a report make sure you include the relevant posts by ticking the post so we know what you are reporting. (2/6)

In case you missed @j’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 🐘
