Got a followbot from d-fens.systems and went to look at the instance... oh boy.
Seems to be at least antivax, pro-Russia, misogynia and general far-right sentiments.
@Stoori Same here. Blocked it immediately.
Actually, I am proud to say this was my first block ever 🙂
@sarahsapphire i guess some of the followbots just scrape public timelines and then follow the people connected to those they find on public timelines etc., so there needs to be no specific reason to end up on a followbot's list
@Stoori@polyglot.city Hmm, the public timeline of that instance appears empty to me, I think the content you are seeing was the federated timeline, which, since it's populated by that followbot would be filled with random crap from all over Fedi.
(still worth blocking the instance though because who wants to be followed by a followbot, let alone one that follows assholes)
@Stoori The instance itself doesn’t have any posts, you’re looking at its federated timeline.
There is, however, a follow bot on that instance, which might be concerning enough to some.
Polyglot City is the right instance for you, if you're interested in linguistics, languages, language learning and translating, or if you are multilingual or polyglot. All languages are allowed to flourish on our timelines. And of course you're free to talk about anything else besides languages, too. Make this your personal home!
