discussion about mechanics of mastodon moderation Show more
moderators on mastodon wishing to take action on a local user have 3 options:
- silence. i'll be frank and say i dont quite know what this does exactly, but its something like "perma-unlist users statuses and only let them see other silenced users (and their follows)"
- disable login. basically a reversible ban, in that it preserves statuses.
- suspend. deletes account and all statuses. a record of the user is left but that is all.
