Remote content policy

Instances on this list may contact us asking for reconsideration. In some cases we may be willing and able to implement different handling of the problems in question.

pleroma.site participates in MRF transparency. Users may verify the running configuration by viewing our NodeInfo data.

New! If viewing a JSON file isn't your thing, you can now view our running MRF configuration at fediverse.network.

Overall, we try to avoid blocking whole instances, but we have the capability. Instead, we prefer to take less intrusive actions to solve problems. As such, this is our current policy:

FAQ

Why do you filter content from remote instances?

In order to provide a comfortable environment for our users, we filter out some content on the shared timelines. This is also known as "editorial control" and is a form of protected speech. In American jurisdictions, this form of "editorial control" is explicitly protected speech per 47 USC § 230(c).

Additionally as has been upheld by 47 USC § 230(c), the ability to publish otherwise legal content is protected speech, but only the publishing itself: as with all other forms of publishing, there is no right to an audience.

What is a "free speech zone"?

Free speech zones are instances with a minimalist moderation policy. In the interest of keeping our environment comfortable, we remove content from these instances from shared timelines.

Why do you defederate instances?

In certain extreme cases, we defederate specific instances. The rationale is provided in the table for each defederated instance. We try to avoid defederation wherever possible in most cases.
