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 Ah there you go, i am trying to make sense of the three windows and understand what to choose among them, thx
@htimsxela Surprisingly orderly to be honest, i was expecting full blown chaos trollbox madness with blinking lights quite frankly
@minnow there have been some influxes of bots spamming out in the past, but otherwise its pretty respectable. The last couple days have been a lot more active overall though.
But once you venture out into the wider fediverse... things can get pretty wild in that regard :p
