Federater has published a redacted/simplifed version of the database I have access to (no, I can't share, it's invite-only) so now I can explain a little better how it works.

I do a little more massaging of the data than the basic query on that page, and I have three very small lists of sites no admin should ever interact with. Three strikes on a list, and that admin's site gets suspended.

The list of interactions that goes in a report includes all interactions with suspended sites, not just those on the trigger list. For instance, if there's a free-speech site and a Nazi site, and the free-speech admin openly chats with the Nazi admin, the free-speech site is getting suspended. If a third site's admin openly chats with the free-speech site, they won't get suspended, but if they later chat with the Nazi site they will. And when they do, both the free-speech and Nazi sites will get listed in their report. Why? Because once you start talking to Nazis the likelihood that your interactions with the free-speech site were also problematic goes way up.

You may notice that none of this addresses any of the content of the sites. That's right! The whole point of the database is just finding the connections. If you make a network map of all the servers you realize that alt fedi is, literally, an alternate fediverse, and that there are very few connections between it and fedi-main. Suspensions now are less β€œyour content is unacceptable” and more β€œyou can choose fedi-main or alt-fedi, which is it gonna be?” The ones that try both find themselves in alt-fedi only. Maybe you're not a poison-spewer yourself, but if you want to play in the sewer where it runs you don't also get to come sit at the crafting table.

OVH Issues

Hugo reports that OVH is having some service degradation, which means masto.host is having some service degradation, which means artisan.chat is having some service degradation.

So far no actual outages that I've seen (though other MastoHosties are having some), since we're kind of overprovisioned. Our background queues are backing up, though, so things are taking extra time to get delivered, timelines are slow to update, etc.

Hugo's keeping an eye on it for us.

18:14EST Update: OVH has rolled out a fix and our queues are dropping back to zero.

After weeks of waiting, we finally got the go-ahead from the US Copyright Office to post this magic incantation on our About page:

Our DMCA Registration Number is DMCA-1043892. DMCA Section 512 notices may be submitted using this form.

Sadly, we can't really make use of the reinstatement-on-appeal part of the DMCA, but that's a feature the software will have in the future.

(Yes, I should track down the Paypal and Stripe payouts to get the exact Ko-Fi amount.)


That leaves us somewhere south of $90 (especially after Paypal fees) going into December. The Ko-Fi is almost all one-off for the LLC/POB, and we're about to get another Patreon round in a few days, which will put us at about $180 (unless a bunch of people cancel). That'll cover the next month of hosting plus the $75 end-of-year LLC report, with a little cushion left over.

This is a happy little WriteFreely instance for fediversian status blogs. It's not hosted on a Masto/etc. server, so it shouldn't be affected by any other fedi outages/compromises.


You can check all the public statuses with the reader, though your site might be set to unlisted. If your host has it set up, status dot {the domain} might redirect to its blog, or try wirebird dot com / the domain, perhaps without dots.


Check the Coalition channel in the Discord if you'd like a status blog here, or ping @Curator@artisan.chat.
