Fellow admins of the Fediverse, you should consider blocking kiwifarms.cc, instance-wide and immediately.
Kiwi Farms is a far right online forum dedicated to harassment, doxxing and gaslighting. They are *very* dangerous. Some of their favorite target have been harassed by them for years and they love to target vulnerable people.
They opened a Pleroma instance some months ago. Suspend them and be careful.
To be fair, I thought most people blocked them right on the spot. But it seems a lot of admins are ever unaware of the existence of Kiwi Farms or unaware of the existence of their instance, kiwifarms.cc.
Unlike Gab's users, most Kiwi Farms' regulars are actively malign and may actively seek people to harass. That's why I strongly suggest you to suspend kiwifarms.cc instance wide if you are an admin.
@Sylvhem Y'know, I really wish there was a way for me, as an individual Mastodon user, to block content from entire domains from the Prefs instead of through the "block user" dialog... you know, instead of waiting around for an admin, I could just nuke the motherfucker from orbit my own self.
@Sylvhem I wasn't aware that they had a presence on fedi. Thanks for the heads up.
@autumn No problems! It's the least I can do.
@Sylvhem I know someone personally who’s spent five years, gone underground, gone to court to seal records, changed their name, changed online identities 12 times, and moved house after being continually doxxed and harassed by kiwifarms. Their crime? Being a visible trans advocate and contributing to blocklists of gamergate/altright.
@sophistoche Wow. That's terrible.
@elfi I also saw a friend asking about them earlier because he received a follow request from a person there. That's what made me make that post.
I hope this is just a coincidence and that they are not more aggressively looking into the Fedivers.
@elfi Yeah, it was then. firstname.lastname@example.org, display name Fren.
Who are they?
@Sylvhem My favorite people...
@spider Oh sorry. That's right. We should be harassed to death instead. That's the civilized way to go.
@spider What do you mean?
@izumidev You want them to show up?
@izumidev Phew. Sorry, I misunderstood your post ^^'.
