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.
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 #Peertube 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A year has gone by and the initial message (the one currently pinned) is a bit outdated, I'll redo it following this post.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_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 peertube.linuxrocks.online and I find it a very pleasant environment.
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.
@PeerTube_Isolation There are a lot of consequences to hosting other peoples' content, especially people you don't know.
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: https://framagit.org/framasoft/peertube/official-plugins/-/blob/master/peertube-plugin-auto-mute/tests/blocklist-sample.json and here is the plugin doc: https://framagit.org/framasoft/peertube/official-plugins/-/tree/master/peertube-plugin-auto-mute
And @Chocobozzz can offer some guidance if you need it.
Thanks again, you're doing an important work ❤️
Is this file okay : https://peertube_isolation.frama.io/list/peertube_isolation.json ?
Can I add it in the auto mute README? https://framagit.org/framasoft/peertube/official-plugins/-/tree/master/peertube-plugin-auto-mute
