Announcement of defederation from mastodon.scot (police & centrism discussion) 

Rage.love will mastodon.scot, effective November 26, 2022.

Background:

1. Mastodon.scot hosts, among other unsafe users, the head of the Scottish police federation. rage.love/@Em/1093140175313325

2. These users' presence on mastodon.scot is not because of overwhelm or delay but a deliberate choice that puts respectability above user safety, as seen in this exchange. mas.to/@rodti/1093146638943006

Our instances share many connections and this was not an easy decision to make, but the admin's extremely public and intentional lack of principle made it easier. We urge other instances to take action to protect their users, and we hope affected mastodon.scot users will seek better and safer instances to call home.

@admin Seems like the right choice. A shame it came to that.

> a deliberate choice that puts respectability above user safety

For others reading this, here's the branch of that other thread that I think gets directly to the "puts respectability above user safety" point: https://rage.love/@cobalt/109316662285217496

@gregprice @admin Sometimes the only good thing that comes of explaining to someone how they're fucking up is to give them the opportunity to explicitly demonstrate that they are knowingly choosing the destructive outcomes of their behavior.

@cobalt @admin Yep. That was well done!
