My experience of getting harassed and how Mastadon dealt with it brought up some insights.

1. I joined Mastadon yesterday, a network that presents an alternative to toxic social platforms.

Rest in the pictures below 2-5.

To build a safe environment for everyone, is very important that all the users help in reporting issues.
To everyone: if you see someone else get harassed don't wait for the admins to notice on their own, just report the trolls!

Remember: The report button is there for a reason.

Reporting πŸ‘ trolls πŸ‘ is πŸ‘ praxis

I should add that because Mastodon instances are not ruled by any corporate overlords, admins here DO listen to complaints. Here the user IS the client. Mastodon instances (at least most of 'em) were created by real people for real people. This alone makes the difference.
