@mirsal Yes, libre. tube is already on the list !
PeerTube moderation : Covid denialism / QAnon
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 : https://cornichon.me/@PeerTube_Isolation/105351231049134892
All instances of this group are considered unsafe.
Therefore I'm adding theses two instances to the list
- thecitizen. icu
- ourchristian .icu
@eest9 Great ideas.
Better defined process would definitely helps (For the moment I contact instances when they only seems badly moderated).
I should also see with Framasoft what and how can I forward to them theses instances for Sepia Search.
I'll probably start slowly to work on that in January.
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 : https://peertube_isolation.frama.io/list/

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A year has gone by and the initial message (the one currently pinned) is a bit outdated, I'll redo it following this post.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 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" : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KenFM

Peertube moderation / conspiracy, QAnon and french far right
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.
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
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:
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.
