@r000t I actually think it will be more likely for larger instance admins to summarily block small instances. Here’s why: if one person reports a user on a small instance, no issue. If 20 people report the small instance user, is become much less effort and hassle just to block the small instance. I say that, because it’s probably what I would do in such a case. (Though depends on the specific case - I don’t like blocking instances)

@jerry @r000t people already block single-user instances such as my own lol
@jerry @r000t its the same idiots who block people on any platform theyre on. it isnt exclusive to here, it definitely isnt a threatening trend on the fediverse, they just take a really long time to burn out and finish segregating themselves over to their own corner of fedi. give it time. people who dont like the meta-drama can block right back or ignore it
@jerry @r000t ("block right back" as in per-user blocks/mutes, im not suggesting to fight fire with fire)

@r000t I’ve been wondering if, at some point, admins of larger instances end up blocking instances with under a certain number of accounts to ward off abusive instances and thinking that blocking a small instance means no material impact on the ability of the instances users to communicate with others.
