: WUBRG will be defederating from this coming Tuesday (October 6). Their moderators haven't been dealing with bad actors well, and this is the tool we have to keep ourselves safe and hopefully give them a wakeup call.

If you've got friends on .social who want to move, I can recommend instances. If you're inviting friends to join wubrg, please let me know so I can be appropriately welcoming.

@DialMforMara How does this affect those of us with followers from servers that continue to be federated with .social? Will they still be able to see us?

@ajanionthespot I don't think "we can't see .social" equates to "people who can see .social can't see us." But I'm gonna defer to @SliverQueen in case she has a deeper understanding of federation.

@ajanionthespot @DialMforMara From my experience, here's how it works if A defeds from B
if instance C feds with both, and a user on C boosts content from A, user on B following that user can see it, and can attempt to interact with it (reply, fav, etc)
They may not get an error message, but original poster on A will not be notified as A is ignoring everything from B

Yes, one of your custom card posts can be seen by someone on m.s, but you'll never know if they try to reply/fav

Does that help?
