"We banned nearly 37M accounts between January and March of this year"
If you've ever wondered what it's like to fight spam at scale, here's what Reddit deals with.
When I occasionally say that I've very strong concerns about the Fediverse dealing successfully with abuse at this scale, this is the sort of thing I'm talking about.
@dredmorbius As long as instances stay small enough for moderators to keep on top, and instance admins are proactive about blocking other instances that permit abuse, I am optimistic about the Fediverse's future. We don't have to deal with it all at once by ourselves.
