@fence In my experience being here, blocking does nothing to dissuade harassment and harmful behavior. Sure, it's an effective individual solution, but I think the greater point is making the fediverse a better place for everyone, not just white guys that know how to code.
Of course, some instances aren't going to share that sentiment and some are.
It's important to know who is and who isn't trying to make this place better.
Because that's what I want. A better fediverse.
