Due to the recent ban of a wolfballs.com-user for “Bigotry and racism on his main account on Wolfball.” it is requested that Lemmy.ml updates the Code of Conduct to reflect actual moderation. Please consider adding that Lemmy.ml will ban users for comments made with other accounts on other instances.
Everything about Lemmy; bugs, gripes, praises, and advocacy.
For discussion about the lemmy.ml instance, go to !firstname.lastname@example.org.
My recommendation would be to avoid the drama and hassle of inter-instance policing and simply undo that ban.
Next would be banning people for content on entirely different platforms. Say something objectionable on YouTube? Banned!
But I am guessing this must have something to do with managing Federated content. Was his other account getting pulled in somehow through the banned account?
I think that’s the situation Salamander is arguing against. And I support him. But I also support that every instance should be able to moderate and administrate how they see fit - That’s why I, as a user on a different instance, don’t care about the ban itself.
But with the shared nature of federation, quite a few of the communities I interact with are on lemmy.ml. I’d very much like to know the rules so I don’t break them, or if I find that I don’t agree with them - so I can find or create other places to participate, instead of trying to change the fundamentals of already existing communities or instances.
