Oh great I got follower-bombed. Any solutions to this? I'm certainly settings follows to approved-only if this keeps happening :/ finally, some good fucking block recommend

botnets don't deserve human rights

@nick Yeah I blocked the domain and watched as they slowly decayed away from my followers list and count. That was satisfying :D


I have blocked the whole address manually. Does it mean that this is no longer necessary cause it is blocked by @snder?

@rysdal @snder I think you no longer need to have it blocked as we'd no longer be federating with that instance, but I'm keeping them blocked just in case. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@moongaia @rysdal

No it’s fixed now. I blocked the domain instance wide so they can’t attack us anymore.

I’m afraid this guy will create more domains and ‘attack instances’ so please keep an eye out!❤️

@snder @moongaia

Thanks 😀

This app s indeed !

As more Entities are going to be blocked as better for

Wait, has the same person done the same thing previously? I got follower bombed by a previous instance, so I already blocked freefedifollowers to keep a repeat from happening.

After I blocked (the other problematic instance), my users that were affected had a displayed follower count of 0, even though they had 15-30 (but their followers list was still accurate).
