Follow has been silenced and not suspended since the beginning of this instance.

The rhetoric for this is primarily based on the fact that due to the intersection in subject matter, it is occasionally useful to federate.

However, in the light of recent events regarding Fosstodon moderation and racism, we urge any users with mutual followers on Fosstodon to convince them to change instances, and any Fosstodon users reading this post to change instances as well. This is, of course, under the assumption that you are willing to condemn the circumstances that caused issues like this in the first place.

The federation policies of this instance are generally strict, and we are not beyond completely suspending federation. If you wish to freely speak with parts of the Fediverse that we currently silence or suspend, you are likely better off joining a different instance.
