Did you try putting in their name in your search box? It maybe comes up with a follow button next to the results.
@verretor @lukedashjr @alanturing @JTR21 I'm not sure you really want 0% censorship. If someone were to start promoting shitcoin scams on bitcoinhackers.org, posting every minute of the day, would you not moderate that?
There are plenty of instances that don't censor much, and with Mastodon you can also migrate your account between instances without losing your social graph, in case you're unhappy on the one you chose first.
Here's a list of some popular instances: https://joinmastodon.org/communities
Besides, their rules indicate they do in fact censor reasonable things too. ("homophobic speech will not be tolerated" plus a vague condemnation of "hate speech")
@lukedashjr @alanturing @verretor I think that's the wrong question. The question is what your community finds reasonable in regards to you encroaching on others' freedoms, like their right to choose sexual partners. If you are not tolerant of their sexuality, then why should they be tolerant of your opinion on it?
@PunaneMarker @lukedashjr @raucao @alanturing @verretor It might not always be unstable if the cost of suppression rises significantly, e.g. because defensive weapons hugely outperform offensive ones in cost/effectiveness.
I'm dreaming of a future where even small communities have the means to resist larger powers because it's too costly to breach their perimeters. I think this option alone will make people realize it's better to cooperate than dominating each other.
