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 :


You can help by reporting instances to this account.

You can follow this account to get update about this list (theses will be under a content warning).

( Inspired by @isolategab )

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A year has gone by and the initial message (the one currently pinned) is a bit outdated, I'll redo it following this post.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

@defrisselle really ?
Refusing to promote hate speech is being fascist ? Can you explain why ?

@PeerTube_Isolation @isolategab


@defrisselle @PeerTube_Isolation @isolategab look up what the paradox of tolerance is, and read thix xkcd, then reconsider if free speech should be a goal unto itself or if maybe nazis are subverting liberal values to undermine our society

@PeerTube_Isolation thank you for doing this. peertube is unusable if this isn't done properly. I decided to give it a try and I was shocked!

@distel From a user perspective, choosing the right instance is as important as it is on Mastodon. The admin of the instance decides which other instances to follow. This can be seen in the about page of the instance. The instance policy can also be found there (or the absence of it). Also it's important to check the local content to see if proper moderation is in place. I'm currently on and I find it a very pleasant environment.


@ericbuijs @distel @PeerTube_Isolation

it's really too bad there isn't a simple "block this instance/user" as there is in Mastodon... this would at the very least allow users to censor what "they" don't want to see or be exposed too.

There will always be critics of Moderator's decisions, that's for sure. It can never be individually suited.

@LPS I agree this would be a good addition. The user/creator tools for 'moderation' are currently limited to reporting a video to the admin, deleting a comment and for some instances send the admin a message.

@distel @PeerTube_Isolation

@PeerTube_Isolation There are a lot of consequences to hosting other peoples' content, especially people you don't know.

This strategy is very good, but hopefully the reports will be verified with neutrality and false positives will not be generated, as happens in Mastodon with the generalized blocking lists; greetings 🤔

@PeerTube_Isolation @isolategab

Holy shit.

On the bright side, I guess PeerTube is working pretty good. :blobthinking:

On the other hand, holy shit. :blobthinkingeyes:

@polychrome @PeerTube_Isolation @isolategab I didn't know this wasn't common knowledge. I thought that was why folks were avoiding Peertube and not uploading anything new. :ablobflushed:

@PeerTube_Isolation @isolategab
😍 That is great work, thanks for taking the initiative! 😍

We recently have published an "automute" plugin that could use such a blocklist. Do you think you could set it in a JSON format?

Here is the sample: and here is the plugin doc:
And @Chocobozzz can offer some guidance if you need it.

Thanks again, you're doing an important work ❤️
