Follow

What the hell is with these newjack.city follow bots? Do I need to block this instance?

@foozmeat yeah I seem to recall them being a bit not ok

@foozmeat yeah looks like it. The xo mastodon slack was complaining about them too.

@d Yeah, I wonder what the strategy there is. I think I'll just block the instance so I never have to wonder about it.

@foozmeat I haven’t seen any questionable behavior other than auto-follow. Personally I’d prefer a more conservative blocking policy, but it certainly doesn’t look like we’d be missing out on much there, either.

@a I blocked it for now. If they're up to something fun then I'll unblock.

@foozmeat

Several people on my KNZK tl have personally blocked the instance.
