Hello Fediverse, and and especially PeerTube's admins.

After finding Neo-Nazi content on the instance I was using, I realized that far-right groups have created PeerTube instances or use unmoderated instances to share their videos.

This content federates on other instances.

I've created this account to list somewhere theses instances, making it easier to isolate them and their content and protect us.

The list : cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/view/V

@PeerTube_Isolation @omelettechu

Exactly. Federation is not a right, and freedom of association for instance owners is a key freedom.

PeerTube / Meta 

Just a reminder, as a admin you should block far right's instance to isolate them and stop hate speech propagation.

But you may also need to do it to avoid legal troubles, for example there's a white supremacist channel on the last instance reported here that points to the owner's Twitter profile.

That Twitter profile is blocked in France and Germany "based on local law".

PeerTube Moderation 

`open . tube` is not moderated.

It's not dedicated to right-wing content but it is heavily used by:

- White supremacists
- Conspirationists
- Religious fanatics
- Libertarians
- Antisemites

Follow-up on a previously reported instance 

I've updated the mention about `videos . lukesmith . xyz`.

From "seems close to the alt-right" to " right-wing extremist rhetoric" after few feedback here.

PeerTube moderation / Meta 

There have been some additions recently, you can find the list of instances here :

PeerTube moderation / Conspirationism 

The following instance is dedicated to conspirationist content :

troo . tube

PeerTube moderation 

The following instance is dedicated to alt-right content:

controverse . tube

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

A video maker from YouTube have opened his own instance.

videos . lukesmith . xyz

He have announced the creation of this instance because "so many of [his] favorites channels now have [been banned]" while showing one banned for hate speech.
After a quick search this channel was the one of the "American Renaissance" magazine, a white supremacist online publication.

While his YouTube channel seems to host mostly tech/linux related content he seems to use a lot of alt-right's illustrations on the thumbnails. I haven't watched any others videos than the one where he's talking about PeerTube so I don't know about the content.

He also said that he have put a lot of his YouTube videos in "private" recently to avoid been banned.

He said in this video that he will post PeerTube's exclusive videos that he can't post on YouTube because they would be banned.

He also said that he wants to fully use federation to not be isolated on his instance, I suggest that we don't allow him that !

PeerTube moderation / neonazi instance 

The following instance is openly neo-nazi:

video . nobodyhasthe . biz

PeerTube moderation / white supremacism mention 

@PeerTube_Isolation he's a known far right chud, I watched one of his tech tutorials once and immediately got a recommended video of him talking about how great Trump is
