That's how I had hoped it would work. So if it continues, just one instance can clean it up so all the others don't need to take any action.

Probably the easiest solution. Just had to remove another one, guess we'll see what happens.

But non-spammy regular users wouldn’t be able to post or interact at that point, right? Also, how would that affect users on a third party instance? For example, I’m on lemm.ee

Genuine question, not too familiar with how the backend of Lemmy works and am curious to learn more :)

Ouch, that’s definitely way out of date and has several critical bugs in it that are unpatched.

I brought the spam issue from that instance to the attention of the admins for LW, they’re going to take a look into it. Will keep an eye out for more spamming today.

I’m not actually sure how that works. If LW defederates does it block all users from that instance from posting? I would guess “yes” in that I believe the instance the community is hosted on plays a role in tracking posts to that community. If you’re curious, I would definitely ask one of the dev communities.

Will leave up for a little since I’m sure a lot of other people saw the barrage of spam from last night. Should be all cleaned up now.

Also, I do believe that is a legit instance, so it’s not likely it’ll be defederated, they’re likely a victim of the spammers as much as we are here… they just need to delete those accounts and block those IPs.

Unfortunately this isn’t an action that mods can take. The admins of each instance need to de-federate from it.

Currently chatting with the other mods about this and while we don't want the community to be overrun by Elon, the articles are some of the most upvoted in the past few days. It seems, that people do want to hear about what's going on but not at a rate that drowns out other content. We've been careful to prune out duplicates to keep the flow down, but the volume of Elon posts and Twitter / X is definitely... a lot. I do see how some find it annoying so we're keeping an eye on the situation, but I do agree it does meet the criteria of being both news and tech related. I assume that he'll eventually run out of Twitter pieces to break, right :P

Please do keep an open line of communication with us and all replies, feedback and opinions are always welcome! Cheers!

Left when Apollo died and haven’t looked back since.
