So honest question, how does it work if someone starts spamming the shit out of the feed every half second and render it unreadable? What is the structure? People report the post and after a number of reports it automatically activates or there is human oversight?

Asking because i've been in many ungoverned universes and almost everytime it became impossible to see anything through the spam. Here feels great and i wonder how it's done.

@minnow There's different levels of what you can see. Home = posts/boosts by the people you follow. Local timeline = posts by people on this instance (there's rules against spam here so yeah, an obvious spammer would get yeeted). Federated timeline = posts that this instance knows of, e.g. because someone from here follows the person who posted/boosted it.


@minnow The last one is the most spammy but also the most interesting to find new content. You can mute/block other accounts or even entire servers, to filter out the stuff you don't care about.

@kekcoin Thank you for taking the time to explain sir, much appreciated!
