My #introduction toot!
I'm Andy and I'm the admin of mentalhealth.social.
My interests are covered in my profile. On #mentalhealth I've briefly known the Black Dog in the past and work hard to keep him on a leash. My wife lives with #BPD bundled with #anxiety and #depression (though has a grip on all of them) and her illnesses are one of the things that drive me to be so passionate about #MH support and care. Which is why I set up this Masto instance; a safe place to socialise and chat. 👍
Well Andy I feel very disappointed because under my notifications there are followers of a different language and porn links. I did not want to delete my account but how to get away from that I would have to.
@MsQueenE1 I'm sorry about that. I don't get notified of follows to other people's accounts so I need to rely on reports from users to deal with abusive or CoC violating toots.
The nature of the Fediverse is that servers will exchange toots with each other very liberally. I try to stay on top of moderation proactively e.g. blocking servers known to spread hate speech. If you come across anything specific, please report it. I do of course understand you choosing to delete your account. Be well.
@MsQueenE1 I've just caught up with your other replies to the weird followers. They look like bots so I don't think you'll get any replies. As soon as I get near my PC I'll see what I can do about them - I would recommend you block them in the mean time.
@MsQueenE1 They were bots. They've already been removed (as far as I can tell) by the admins of the servers they originated on.
Either way, I've added suspensions for those four accounts, meaning their content (toots, etc.) has been deleted from mentalhealth.social and they have been blocked.
Please report any accounts like this and I can deal with them swiftly. I of course, support your decision to delete your account here should you still choose to.
Stay safe and best of luck!
Thank you Andy! I appreciate you taking care of that for me. As a victim of being sexually assaulted I cringe at the thought of sites like that. If they only knew they would treat their bodies with the utmost respect instead of making a public decrease of themselves
I decided to continue on and take your advice by blocking these. Thank you!
