Pinned toot

Hello Fediverse, and and especially PeerTube's admins.

One year ago, I've found neo-nazi content on the instance I was using.
So I realized that right-wing groups have created PeerTube instances or are using unmoderated ones to spread their hate speech.

This content federates on other instances.

I list them here, making it easier to isolate them and their content to protect us.

The list : peertube_isolation.frama.io/li

Peertube moderation: Racist, antisemitic and nazi content 

Adding peertube.rage .lol to the list.

It hosts nazi propaganda and racists content

Peertube moderation, alt-right (antisemitic, homophobic) instance 

Adding videos.martinezperspective .org to the list.

It has a lot of antisemitic and homophobic content.

I didn't dig too much but I imagine that there are also all the themes cherished by the right-wingers.

PeerTube moderation : Covid denialism / QAnon 

tube.querdenken-711. de

Adding this instance to the list. It's maintained by the german group "Querdenken".

It's a group of covid denialist spreading conspiracy myths such as "the Great Reset".

They use a slogan inspired by that of QAnon.

In an interview, the founder of this group refused to condemn racism and fascism, instead describing Querdenken as a "democratic movement" that is "open to anybody".
He is also accused of having benefited from this movement.

Peertube moderation, more of the same 

The openly fascist instance just reported (oursocialism. today) is part of the group "fight big tech. See : cornichon.me/@PeerTube_Isolati

All instances of this group are considered unsafe.

Therefore I'm adding theses two instances to the list

- thecitizen. icu
- ourchristian .icu

Peertube moderation, openly fascist instance 

Adding oursocialism. today to the list.

It's an openly fascist instance.

The admin name display name is "National Socialism" and use a nazi icon for the instance.

SBC Meta, Block 

- oursocialism.today: A nazi activity pub instance that just popped up.

Do you think the list should be split into several thematic lists?

For example : right-wing/hate-speech and conspiracy theories

One year after the creation of this account the list contains 21 instances (and sadly it will keep growing, at least for the near-future).

3 of them are down, including
one of the two that led me to create this account ! 🎉

While the early finds where done exclusively by myself the last ones are all instances that people have reported to me. Thanks for your help !

We should continue in our common effort to isolate hate speech. Everyone involved in can be a part of it : users and of course admins.

In January I will try to investigate on how this has been effective, by looking at instances still federating with the ones reported here.

A year has gone by and the initial message (the one currently pinned) is a bit outdated, I'll redo it following this post.
I encourage you to boost it to spread awareness !

Peertube Moderation: racism, conspiracy (antivax, covid denialism and more) 

tube.kenfm. de is the instance of KenFM a German platform from the former radio host Ken Jebsen.
His radio show have been canceled following the leak of an antisemitic and Holocaust denialist mail he wrote.

Most of the videos are conspiracy videos, some of them are racist.

The 3 thumbnails showed in this post show an example of what can be found there : racism, conspiracy about Bill Gates and antivax discourse.

Here's the Wikipedia page about "KenFM" : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KenFM

re: PeerTube Moderation 

domain names are cheap, and "fightbigtech" seems to know it.

I'm adding plandemic .icu to the list.

If you are a PeerTube admin you can subscribe to the list with the automute plugin (see the pined message).

Peertube moderation / conspiracy, QAnon and french far right 

runtube. re

This instance host mostly french videos (but there's a few in english).

These are mainly videos on conspiracy theories that are gateways to the extreme right.

A lot of them are antivax ones.

There are also some videos of french extreme right-wing groups and individuals.
For example "Egalité & Réconciliation", a french anti-semitic, denialist and conspiracy group.

PeerTube Moderation 

As suggested* by @zoe I add the following "fightbigtech" PeerTube's instances to the list:

- katiehopkinspolitical .icu
- voicenews .icu
- antivaxxer .icu
- theduran .icu
- censorship .icu
- political .icu

*mastodon.sleeping.town/@zoe/10

block recommendation (spam instances, right-wing agitprop, antivax, etc) 

A group known as "fightbigtech" has been creating a ton of spammy instances full of rightwing agitprop.

Here's a list of the ones I could find:

- tweety.icu
- katiehopkinspolitical.icu
- voicenews.icu
- antivaxxer.icu
- theduran.icu
- censorship.icu
- political.icu

I would recommend general suspicion of any .icu domain, seeing as they're cheap — don't autoblock them, but perhaps check their content if they show up.

Peertube Moderation / Conspirationism / Hate speech 

lanceur-alerte. tv

This instance host a lot of conspiracy videos and harmful medical advices. Both in french and english.

It also have some videos promoting alt-right discourse and homophobic content.

The administrator is actively promoting theses.

If you're also a Mastodon/Pleroma admin you might want to defederate with the instance :

lanceur-alerte. social

@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
